I'm new here and this is my first message i found out yesterday at 10dpo that i'm pregnant and my husband and i are both thrilled this is baby#2 after 7 years!
Yesterday in the afternoon I PoaS using clearblue easy and it was the brightest (+) sign ever! i'm not sure if my hcg level should be as high for the hpt to be as clear at this point, and the only thing i could think of is, could i be carrying twins?
has anyone had a clear BFP on hpt at 10dpo and just carried a single baby? is it normal to have high hcg level at this point? for those who are carrying twins, what are your symptoms like comparing to carrying a single baby?

I have also gotten high hcg levels with my first and was incredibly sick, and I just had one baby
When I flew home a few days later to have the IUD removed, I was more like 6.5 weeks along. Then an ultrasound showed twins. The higher levels in Turkey were from the twins...so yes, they made a difference.
This time it was 13dpo before I got a faint one.
Both are healthy singletons, DD was never a twin, had several early ultrasounds (due to 6dpo bfp we thought maybe my timing was off and I was a month further along or something but alas, no, I got a bfp at 6dpo) and never did they find more than one sac or baby or corpus luteum.
I got super positive tests at 10 DPO with both of my singletons. Not saying you don't have twins, but positives can be fairly common even that early, with single babies.
I've always tested clearly positve at 10dpo also.
Only 1 pg began as twins, the otheres were singletons.
Congrates though and good luck!

I do not think an early test shows anything but an early implant, what can be a sign, but is not always is very fast doubling of the blood tested hcg levels. Doctors will look for it to doubling in the first weeks withing 36-48 hours usually, doubing consistently way faster than that is a sign. You only know for sure at a ultrasound, we found mine at 6w4d with two strong heartbeats.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
So, I'd say pretty definitively that although you could be carrying twins, you could just as easily be not.
Congrats, and I hope you have an easy pregnancy!
