Hi girls just wondering if anyone got a beta done at 5 weeks plus? Mine was 20,700 today and 5+3 days. Nurse said it is high. We are preparing ourselves mentally for twins and so excited and grateful after everything we have been through but Im actually starting to worry about triplets. :ooh :o0 :o0 :o0

Hi Windycity, Yes I had mine done on my pregnancy with my DS. I was 5 weeks 5 days & 6 weeks with the 2 tests. They were 18500 on the 5 wk 5 d & 36000 on the 6 wk mark. So roughly doubling. So your's does seem high! Have you any morning sickness? Mine got very bad after the 6 week mark, but all in a good cause. It's a great sign your HCG is so high. They thought initially with me there were twins as I was so nauseuos but it was just himself :o0 Great results Windycity, a sign of a strong pregnancy!

I had my hcg done on my 1st miscarriage & at 7 weeks it was 1500. Very low. So I don't know what you are worrying about. Your level's are high, but in the normal range. I myself was thinking that your levels are high, but maybe not "twin" high,so there's no need to worry about not being in the normal range. I don't know what age you are, but I was 36 when my DS was born (tomorrow, last year) & he's perfect. Down syndrome rates are actually quite low, being honest! Come to think of it, you may be getting a double surprise, but if it's only the one, everything will be perfectly fine. Relax & enjoy !
