Mamatoady, when the placenta takes over around 10-11 weeks, HCG starts to drop dramatically, so a Beta HCG test won't tell you anything informative at this point.
But an u/s probably will!
I got mine scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Another week of wondering sounds excruciating, but I'll be glad to get in and see what's going on in there!
Good luck! Keep us posted! I'll do the same.

Well mamas, thank you so much for all your support, information and advice!
It turns out I'm just another paranoid mama using up your precious time. I'm only having one baby. I was so convinced there were two that I'm actually mourning the second baby that never was.
The other surprise though, is that this baby is a girl. I was SURE it was a boy. So sure infact, that I went out 2 weeks ago and bought a bunch of boy clothes. Needless to say, I'm in shock for more than one reason!
But, she's healthy and looks perfect! So, after I get over the shock of her being a girl, and somehow convince dd that she's a girl and not a boy (dd's ADAMANT that the baby is a boy), I'll be happy.
