He wouldn't say if it was twins or not (just like last week he wouldn't say if I was still pregnant or not). I guess its just a policy. He said it could go either way. I'm okay with either way. But my pregnant paranoia just wants to see a dang baby on the screen wiggling and a heartbeat so I can go about living my life for a while! LOL

I can understand why but that doesn't make it any easier for you! Keep us updated!

Did you have an hcg draw in early pregnancy? My levels were at 1158 at what he estimated to be around 3-4 weeks.

Well I did IVF so I can tell you what it was in those terms.lol
At 14 days past retrieval (essentially ovulation) it was 286 and two days later it was 681. ( Around 3 or 4 weeks)My doctor said my first big indicator of twins was my high Progesterone level, it was 218 and he also said HCG levels were not necessarily a good indication of multipes. So, yea, I don't know.haha

Darn I should have had them check my progestorone. Haha.



Yeah I googled after I asked and see that a lot of singleton pregnancies have higher hcg then twins.



I have been more tired, nauesous and sore boobs this pregnancy, as compared to no symptoms at all with my last two babies. But every pregnancy is different its been 3 years so that doesnt reallty help either. lol

I can't help you with that either, as that was my one and only pregnancy.lol I will say, I'm no doctor, but it is obvious our pictures look similar!

I really looks identical. At least the first one. The second pic was actually taken before the other, thats when we noticed the two spaces and he moved it a little to get a better pic. haha.



I'm so anxious these four weeks aregoing to take forever!!

I'm panicking over here just because we still cant see a baby. I don't think I can wait 4 weeks to know something. :( :(

From experience I know it's a long wait :( hold in there Hun. It's probably a better sign that they're the same gestation at least.

I don't know that though. He didn't actually do any measurements. He said given the uncertainty on my dates we would wait until my next appointment. But he was guessing about 4-5 weeks.



I still don't even have an EDD yet! lol
