OK so I'm 45 and have had 4 IUI and a depressing couple of years trying to get preg, but after my first IVF with a donor egg on Mar 11, 2 pos home preg tests, I did get a pos blood test today at the dr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The nurse says that I need another blood test next Fri and then an ultrasound on apr7. She said that they hope for normal beta numbers around 100 but mine is 568. HUH? WHA...? I asked about a due date and she said that just guessing with her wheel device without having the ultrasound yet, she's thinking Nov 29. I'm honestly just speechless. does this sound like twins to anyone else???

Hi! That is on the high end for a single baby, but it isn't unheard of. Women's hcg levels can vary greatly in the beginning
