I got a call from the nurse today with my blood results from yesterday. She said everything looks good and to stay on all meds, only stopping Estrace suppositories on Monday the 16th. They want me back for more blood work on Wednesday the 18th with next ultrasound still on Monday the 23rd.
I asked her what my HCG level was today and she said 38,847! For everyone in IVF land that's 20dp5dt.That's REALLY high!
I had consulted the google and wrote down what my level MIGHT be on day 20 based off of what other girls had. The number was 13,000 (and that's for twins). Mine was 38,847!
Here are my numbers so far:
Average numbers for twins according to betabase.info:
I've been pretty concerned about the numbers being so high. I've read that it can be a sign of molar pregnancy or down syndrome. I mean, it's HIGHLY unlikely that there's a secret triplet in there.
Then I came across this comment on a message board, which helped me chillax. "My doctor told me that with those high numbers he suspected a twin pregnancy and a healthy one". I'm going to go with that scenario.
