Twin mamas...what were your beta numbers?
If you knew/remember them. And what DPO were they drawn at? :)

ETA--I know betas really don't mean anything when it comes to multiples...average numbers could still be twins+ and high numbers can still be a singleton. I'm just curious :mrgreen:

I have mine from all 3 of my twin pregnancies, but it's too late for me to look them up right now. :blush: But, the best site for comparing betas is :thumbsup:

Oh and very quickly, to indicate twins, it's not about the actual number. It's about how fast it rises. And, on top of that, you really need at least 3 or 4 that are 2 days apart to really get a good indication because even a single will have a "fluke" fast rise sometimes. It's a pattern of a faster rise that indicates the possibility of multi's. Generally speaking, a singleton will double in 48hrs for early betas, but twins will double + about 20% in 48hrs. Both slow down around 1200, though twin betas usually keep rising faster than a singleton.

Hope that helps. :)

Re: Twin mamas...what were your beta numbers?
We didn't get betas for the first set of twins, but did for the last 2 sets (our last pregnancy started as twins but we lost one early on, so we have 3 sets but only 2 surviving sets.) So here's those betas:

ID di/di:
12dpo 104
14dpo 400
17dpo 1719

Fraternal di/di
12dpo 70
14dpo 278
22dpo 8893
