Welcome, EAJ! Have they checked your betas for doubling time? Usually by 8 weeks it is supppper obvious if you have twins, in my opinion. The dead give away for me was when my hcg was tripling between betas. I had a doubling speed of 27 hours. It's not fool proof, but if your beta rises that quickly then it's usually a sign of twins. Hang in there and yay for joining!

Dobby,

I'm in the States, so they don't do betas here (or at least not in California, where I live). They did a serum HCG on me when I was in the ER on Sunday, at it was in the 180,000 range.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

What?! I'm in Cali, too. I have Kaiser and they, standard, check your levels at your first prenatal minimum. Any more than that usually is requested or you have cramping/bleeding. I have high anxiety disorder though so I tend to get whatever I ask for so long as it is in reason. So when I asked my doctor for one she ordered me like 10 haha. I wouldn't worry too much though about twins at this point. I forgot to say congrats on the healthy scan!

Welcome eaj! I hope you start feeling better soon. I had HG when I was carrying my son, it lasted until I was 16, maybe 18 weeks, and I had to be on disability as well. It was so horrible, I puked all day.. I used to cry going to my appointments, I had no one to drive me. I had to bring bags. So far so good this time around but I remember clearly how awful it was. You poor thing, I really hope it dissipates.

Welcome Eaj
I know few women who have had HG and just one of them had twins. The others have more than one child and had it each time, one has three children and she got worse each time. I just hope that wont be the case in your pregnancy! But it would not hurt to be prepared for it.

Have any of you had bad dreems pregnancy related?

Welcome EAJ!

I went to my PCP today for a follow up and my UTI is back. She gave me again Amoxicillin 3 times per day for 10 days and gave me copy of the lab results. She wanted me to gave the documents to my OB/GYN next week.
I have history of UTI in pregnancy but this time is very bad.

Welcome EAJ!

Sorry about your UTI Maries, I'm surprised they gave you amoxicillin instead of nitrofurantoin, it's such a good antibiotic for bad UTIs and is safe all through pregnancy.

I booked my first midwife appt today, only 2 weeks to wait.
