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

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

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
