I wasn't even completely sure if I was pregnant as I had a miscarriage in December and I never had a period yet. I couldn't tell if I was waiting for that first period or if I were pregnant again.

But on Monday, 19 days DPO my HCG was 2850. On day 21, it was 6000!!!

I said to my OB, "those are high, right?" He said there is a wide range of normal but yes, these were high. He keeps saying that he's not confident on gestational age because I went right from a miscarriage to pregnant again with no period in between, but I assure him that I KNOW the date of conception.

So I asked him what else causes high numbers and while he stressed that there's a wide range of "normal," one known cause is multiples. gulp!

Happy Mom of Maeve (6). Always missing my DD2 Daisy (22 weeks--June 2008). After an ectopic at 6 wks (11/08) and a miscarriage at 5 wks (12/09), Rainbow Baby Finn is here (10/3/10)

Congrats Mama!
It's going to be interesting to see how many sets of twins we end up with!

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!
