    Ok so first of Hello!!!

    Second of all my husband and I have been TTC for a few months now and so far had no luck. I had my last period on the 9th of July so I'm officially about a week late. Took 3 HPT's and they were all positive, went for blood work today and my doc said that it was high for only being 3 to 4 weeks pregnant (Beta's were in the 6,000's) I know I cant be father along and I have been told it could mean multiples. Kinda a scary thought for us but id welcome it. But then a friend told me that it could mean an ectopic pregnancy!! She has me all worried now and I'm trying to find information. Can anyone help!!!

    Please ignore your friend.

    An ectopic usually has low hCG counts that rise very slow & stand at static. Mine didn't go above 500 tops (can't remember now).

    Your hCG levels seem normal to me personally (just reaching 5 since period):

    Thanks for the quick reply, I'm just about going insane over here :)

    Ok even that chart says somewhere between 5-426 but I'm up in the 6,000's at the most I'm only 4 weeks, Should I still be concerned about multiples??? Maybe I just don't get the way the numbers can vary lol I'm going to pull my hair out with this mess!!!

    These things are only guideline but one thing for sure is your not below the hCG levels expected plus your closer to 5 weeks than 4. It 'could' mean twins or more hehe but defo ignore your friend Ooooo an stay away from good old Google lol Drive you MAD even more < It did me!

    A slow rising hCG level is the worry :D

    Thanks lol Google is so darn right addicting. I'm going tomorrow to actually see my doc and actually try to figure this whole mess out although she says its too soon to see much on an scan. I wonder if she can tell if its more than one baby by feeling my abdomen like they do during the exam???

    I don't think so :D

    They can try from 5 weeks to find a viable pregnancy but I'm not sure if that includes twins +. Good luck though :D

    lol yeah I didn't listen very well I decided to look around some Twin sites and they pretty much scared the hell out of me but they helped me realize how close my story is to theirs. I had my Betas checked again today and they have more than doubled in 24 hours. My doc wont give me an ultrasound unless I have to have one because I'm on government health :( So I guess I have to wait to find out if its twins but my gut tells me it is.

    I just checked my HCG tests from October and I had the following:-

    4w4d 821
    4w6d 2,021
    5w4d 14,229

    Your levels look great :hugs:, as long as they double every 2-3 days then things are going to plan lol.
