I got a phone call from my doctor this morning and she said that my HCH level has gone up 3x the amount in just 24 hours....she says that this could mean one of two things...either I'm father along then we thought or I am carrying more then one baby!!!! Has anyone else ever had a high HCH level? I don't think I am father along then thought because I have been charting and all of that fun stuff for the past 6 months...my cycle is EVERY 29 days! Not just that but I had an U/S done @ the beggning of the week and it was to early to see anything...so I cant be that far along if nothing showed up on the U/S...anyone?

Mine went from 274 to 953 in 3 days. And then from 953 to 10,319 in 6 days. Do u know your HCG results? You can google HCG levels and get a range. Does it scare you there might be more than one?

I know Sara over in the Winter Babies thread in Pregnancy Pals is expecting multiples and she said her HCG levels were multiplying like crazy. So yes, I'd say it's very possible you're having more than one. It's not definite, but it's likely. Do twins run in either of your families?

So I had another blood draw today....my hCG lever went from a 482 on Thursday to a 1805 today...is this within normal? Or is this high still? I am still in my 4th week!

Here are some levels for you to check out. At 5 weeks & 3 days, I was at 10,319. If you look at the PP board in the winter baby thread Sarah posted her levels. They increased alot more than your's did, but she was pregnant with several babies (I'm not sure exactly how many). How cool would that be if you were pregnant with twins!! Laughing out loud

Beta hCG level chart

I found what Sarah said in the winter babies, hope it helps you. Here it is:

To answer your question my hcg levels started out high my 14 day was around 800 if I remember correctly and 3 days after that they went up to like 4000....then 2 days later they were about 14000....yeah...they were kind of crazy but if you break it down they almost double for every baby that there was if you gave them all there own level i guess...it was off by a little but they were extremely high from the beginning...the last level they took was well over 20,000 when they decided i didn't need to be checked anymore and went in for the first u/s.

Thanks for the info. it is very helpful....I have to go with the DR says though...I know every pregnancy is different...I go in for another U/S next friday as I am not as far along as we all thought I am measuring 4 days behind what we thought...so when I had my U/S on Wednesday they still couldnt see much however my levels are @ 9002 and I am measuring @ 4w 6d @ on Wednesday...so I was schedule for another U/S and more blood work...my DR says everything looks normal and my levels are double every 24-72 hours like they should...so I guess according to the chart you listed above I am still high for 5 weeks!
