Hi. This is kind of long, but I'm really hoping for some advice. First of all, my fiancee is a triplet, so it definitally runs in his genes. I went to the hospital 3 days ago and found out I was pregnant. The doctor guessed me at about 8 weeks due to my hormone level. It was 6,000. I went back the next day because I was having problems and my hormone level was at 8,000. I was told that that amount of an increase could possibly mean more that one.
I went to the ultrasound but they couldnt see the baby. It was too early. All they could see was the sac forming. Also, that week, I had bled a bit, which I think was my implantation bleeding. This all leads me to believe I am about 4 weeks pregnant. Hormone levels at 4 weeks should be anywhere up to like 430. Mine were 8,000 two days ago. Even if I was 5 weeks and the spotting was my missed period, the level is only supposed to be like 6,000.
All of my research is leading me to believe it's twins or tripletts, but the doctors out here all contradict each other and if you ask anyone, none of them are good at all, so I don't know what to think. I was hoping for some advice from people who have had more than one or remember their hormone levels. Thank You!View Thread
