HCG 2,311 at 4 weeks 5 days


**UPDATE #2**

Just heard my doctor and my hcg at 5 weeks 4 days was 23,500! More than tripled since my last one, very exciting!!

Go for my prenatal appointment on Monday and hopefully a scan next week or the week after

**UPDATE #1**

Just heard from my doctor, my hcg at 5 weeks 1 day was 6,545 so more than double from the first work up so I am very excited that this pregnancy is progressing nicely. Probably not twins, but very happy for what appears to be a healthy baby so far

Hi Everyone, I am new here and just pregnant (5 weeks today) with my second. I recently had a chemical pregnancy in August at just over 4 weeks so my doctor is sending me for hcg blood tests every 3 days for the next week and a half or so.

I had my first test on Wednesday (4 weeks 5 days) and it was 2,311...he said it was high and a good sign that this pregnancy is going to go well for me, but I am wondering if this is high enough to possibly be twins?

I know I wont' know more until after my next test which is tomorrow but I just wanted to see if any multiples mama's out there had similar experiences.

He wants to do a scan at 6 or 7 weeks also just to see how everything is looking but I do not have that booked yet.

I do have twins on my dads side of the family but I know that that doesn't really have an impact on my chances as its usually the moms side that does that.

Thank you in advance for any input/advice/comments.

Congrats on the pregnancy!

My HCG At 4w6d was in the 9,000's but as far as I'm aware the HCG doesn't necesssarily have to be really high to indicate twins I'm no expert Though! Good luck with your scan xx

Did you find out whether you're having twins?

The nurse at the ob/gyn told my SIL that a higher HCG usually indicates a girl if a woman is not having twins.

That is interesting! I never heard that higher hcg meant a girl I never had blood work this early with my son, only the regular prenatal work up and then doppler at 10 weeks and ultrasound at 14 I believe and so on...so this is all very new to me. A girl would be fantastic! I thought I wanted another boy because I love little boys so much, but I keep seeing all the adorable girl clothes and I think I may want a little girl more than I thought!
