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!
