Re: Twin mamas...what were your beta numbers?

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

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.
