HCG Level In Twins

I am 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I had my 1st beta done yesterday. They called w/ the results this morning an said that they were right at 1500. She said that was great for 4.5 weeks. I looked at a website and found that the average beta in a singleton pregnancy at this time is 450. Okay... but the average beta in twins is 1500. Has anyone ever heard that? Mind you... had abdominal ultrasound done yesterday and showed nothing except pregnancy induced thickening of endometrial stripe (where the sac will form)

I can't help you here. I do not know what my beta numbers were. Anyone else?

According to some sites, my HCG numbers were high enough to be twins, but, nope---only a singleton. I've seen a lot of ladies post that HCG numbers are not good indiacators of twins/singletons, but you never know!

What I really want to know ...and I have been searching for this all day..... At what level of HCG should a gestational sac be detecting on a trans ABDOMINAL ultrasound. b/c thats what i had done yesterday

I had my levels checked on Saturday and they were at 1012 mIU and I think I was right around 3 days. Your levels sound good though! I really don't know anything about the beta levels though. BTW Congratulations!!!!!!

try this site: alittlepregnant dot com. It's some lady's blog but she has some HCG facts. I've copied them here: "Conventional wisdom is that you won't see anything on ultrasound until your hCG levels exceed 1,000 mIU/mL. However, the gestational sac has been visualized with transv____al ultrasound at levels as low as 300. In the majority of pregnancies, a sac should be visible when levels exceed 2,000. A yolk sac is commonly seen in normal pregnancies once hCG tops 2,500; an embryonic pole is expected at 5,000; and a heartbeat is seen in the majority of normal pregnancies when levels reach 10,000." This doesn't answer your question exactly, but it's the closest thing I found when I was searching for similar info.
