What were your betas around 20 dpo?

Postby lbgoehefam » Sat Aug 02, 2014 2:23 pm

Hi there ladies and congrats on your pregnancies :) I'm just wondering what your betas where around the time I had mine taken...doesn't have to be the exact dpo. I was 5w3d or 23dpo and only had one beta drawn. This was a couple weeks ago. Anyways my beta was 17,582! Doesn't that seem high for one baby? I've just had this feeling for a while that I might be having twins. I didn't think anything of that beta until I started seeing other women's at the same time frame. My dad has twin brothers although they are identical twins which aren't hereditary as its more of a fluke that the egg splits rather than releasing more than one egg. This is my fourth pregnacy and I also know the more kids you have the higher your chances are of having multiples. I did have a scan at the same time as my betas but bc it was so early wouldn't their be a high chance of not seeing two sacs even if that was the case? Anyways hope you all are doing well :) and congrats again!

Yeah I actually did go on there and take a look yesterday. I was on the really high end for singletons so then I looked at the betas for twins and I was on the high end for that as well. So I guess there's just a really large range of normal for both. Time will tell. I have an u/s next Friday so I'm going to ask the tech to take an extra look to make sure lol

I was the same way---high on both ends, so I wasn't sure based just on that. At the end of the say, I had a gut feeling. I was pretty sure I ovulated to eggs at once because I had an ultrasound two days before ovulation, and so I knew there was a chance. Still didn't believe it when we actually found out though! Good luck!!! Keep us posted!

I did not have Betas taken at that time cause once they saw 2 sacs it wasnt necessary. I only had 2 early on and they were 12dpo and 15dpo I believe, It is in my signature.I was able to see 2 sacs at 5 weeks 1 day. I have included some pics below to show you a week apart how different it is. Good luck and trust me Betas are not always accurate for guessing multiples :) You need to see it to be sure.

My twin betas were 914 at 16dpo, 1632 at 18dpo. My RE said he was positive it was twins based on the first beta (though the internet says high betas don't necessarily mean twins). He even said had he not seen a second sac at that appt he would have figured it was just hiding and he'd look at my next ultrasound.

I wish i had something to compare your us pics to but I didn't get any print outs this time, in fact I didn't even see the screen at all. I only had the us because of these achey feeling I kept having on my right lower side by my ovary. So my Dr told me to go into the ER to make sure it wasn't ectopic. So that's the only reason I had an ultrasound already. I have my first ob apt on Friday though with a more thorough u/s.

Well ladies just wanted to update you all on OB apt and ultrasound yesterday, everything went really well. I measured right at 8 weeks which changes my due date to the 20th instead of the 23rd. Even though I know when I o'd due to temping I might have a slower rise after o and maybe o'd 2 days before my temp rise? Anyway the us tech only saw one little strong peanut so no twins lol. It was fun guessing with you all though. The baby's bpm was 142 so a nice strong hb. I wish you all well and have happy healthy twin pregnancies! Xoxo
