Since I’ve already gotten four e-mails asking me why I think it’s twins, here’s my logic.
If you’re bored, travel on over to a nifty site called BetaBase.info. Women who are pregnant put in their betas, the number of days after LMP that they got them, whether there was a heartbeat and whether they had IVF, IUI, etc.
The key point? They also say whether they had a singleton or multiples.
It is assumed my beta was on day 16 after ovulation. At most, it could have been day 18. No more than that, according to bloodwork and ultrasound and really, even that is pushing it.
The average for a singleton pregnancy 16 dpo is 249. The average for multiples is 422. For the record, mine was 672.
Assuming they are dating the pregnancy wrong, the average for a singleton pregnancy 18 dpo is 543. The average for multiples is 853.
Either way, my numbers are high. That’s why I’m going with twins. 🙂 Should be fun. Might try and push for a Friday ultrasound, if I can conquer my fear of the shower. And my fear of seeing bad things or not seeing anything at all.
