Hello, I was 6 weeks to date from my last period when I had an u/s that told me that I was only 5 weeks along and that I must have concieved later in my cycle that what is considered average. My HCG levels were at 5899 and then they went up to 12000 in only 2 days. I had my hcg level checked on wednesday and it was at 5899 and then on friday it was 12000 and I have been reading on the internet as a general guide that my levels are way higher than what is average for how far I am along. My breats are really sore I can't even touch them most of the time and I am so tired I fin dit hard to stay awake and I can't get rid of the feeling of "morning sickness". Does all this mean that I could be carrying more than one baby? I have twins in my family on my dads side that have always skipped a generation (meaning I will be the generation to have them) and my partner has them on both his mum and dad have lots of twins in their families.

The only real way to tell if you're having multiples is by u/s. High HCG levels don't mean a thing. Mine were low & I had twins. Mine were discovered at the 6week u/s & could be missed. HCG levels are supposed to at least double every 2 days, therefor having yours jump to 12000 in just 2 days is normal.

very high HCG levels in early pregnancy COULD be an indication of multiple pregnancy but isn't always indicative of one. High HCG levels could also be caused by a host of other things. That said, my HCG levels were 5500 at 5 weeks and then 2 days later they were at over 15,000 and then shot up to 117,000 in a week. My progesterone levels started off at 45 and tapered off at 68 and then we stopped checking because we knew it was a viable pregnancy
