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!

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!
