what are your levels? I am about 16 days past ovulation and I am at 474. I guess that is good....but now I am a little worried about possible twins...<br><br>

With this pregnancy my numbers were:<br><br>
10 dpo - 10<br>
14 dpo - 150 (my doubling time was 24 hours, so it would have been around 600 at 16 dpo)<br>
21 dpo - 2761<br><br>
These numbers are about 4x higher than they were with my son and almost double what they were with my daughter. Doing the math on doubling times, around 16 dpo they would have been around 360 with my daughter and my HCG with my son on 16 dpo was 141.<br><br>
I asked about this in the main forum since my 21 dpo HCG was higher than average twins numbers on Betabase, and they were very reassuring. One mama had higher HCG with her singleton than with her triplets!<br><br>
Just one baby by the way, no multiples here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Try to relax, each pregnancy is SO different!

My level at 11dpo was 51, just got the call, since I'm out f town we won't be redo it till 16dpo sadly. But I have always heard not to read much into any single number and instead just look for it to rise apropriately.

I just got my results today.... I was 236 at 13 DPO and 617 at 15 DPO. I'm pretty sure of my dates, should I be worried or happy about this?

Have you guys seen <a href="http://betabase.info" target="_blank">http://betabase.info</a> it was really interesting to look around and compare numbers. You can see what is average, but also see how wildly it varies, a real calm down for folks I bet. I happen to be a bit higher than average for a singleton and just slightly high for twins, but again my mantra is to not read much into it, i'll see how well that works!

And if you go here <a href="http://www.justmommies.com/pregnancy/hcgcalculator.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.justmommies.com/pregnancy...lculator.shtml</a> you can see that your levels, m0xxie, doubled in 1.4 days. I think "they" want the levels to double every 2 days. So youre good! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks for your nice words of support! I'm new to this community and already feel so welcome. I'm getting another hcg test soon, looking forward to more (hopefully) reassuring data.

Just got the results of my latest HCG.... in the last week I went from 617 (15 dpo) to 15,341 (22 dpo). I appear to be doubling every one and a half days.... anyone else getting numbers this high or doubling this fast? I assume it a good thing but would like some reassurance <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

If you go to <a href="http://betabase.info" target="_blank">betabase.info</a> you can look at where you fall with ton of other ladies. Some find it one more thing to stress over but since all pregnancies listed there have continued successfully I find it reassuring to see the huge spread of what is still normal. Looks like you are smack in the middle of the curve! And as for doubling times it is also just a few hours faster that average. I think you can be really happy with those numbers!

My beta hcg was at 1022 at 16 dpo. I go for another (24 dpo) tomorrow. I think there is a great degree of variation in levels.
