    It could just mean that you implanted fairly early. I am an early-implanter, and my hcg at 4 weeks (14dpo) was 800, so if that were to double every 48 hours, it would have been over 25,000 at 5w3d, so I wouldnt necessarily say it means twins...and in fact, Ive read its more high hcg along with high progesterone levels that are a beter indicator. But, Ive read of women having "normal" hcg levels that had twins, so anything is possible....

    My level at 4wks 1 day was 270 and I am having twins, and my progesterone was 210. Not sure if thats much help!

    Have a look at this site: http://www.betabase.info/

    It has levels from different women for single and multiple pregnancies, it may help.

    Hi,

    I just found out I am having twins yesterday - I still can't quite believe it. Really exciting!

    My Hcg levels are going crazy, on monday they were 29,000 and on wed they were 335,000. They do say however that you can't really tell with just hcg alone. You'll have to wait for the ultrasound

    Thanks everyone for your replies. What concerned me was that the gp had reviewed the bloods and written in my chart that the hcg levels were consistent with 8-10 weeks pregnancy (the nurse gave them to me).

    Given we had just the one 'oops' I know exactly how far along I should be, which was 5 weeks 3 days at the first bloods.

    One healthy baby would be great, two would be a bonus. Good to know they aren't freakishly high, I was more stressed it may be a molar pregnancy than anything.

    I look forward to finding out on Thursday

    No way those levels are consistent with 8 - 10 weeks unless he's expecting yours to be low for dates.

    Mine thought I was further ahead, but the scan was within 2 days of when I thought my dates were.
