Hi!!!! I'm Paige and I'm 21 and I just found out I was pregnant July 30th. My last period was July 1st (no.. still haven't got it :-) definitely pregnant) I had my first blood test done Friday the 3rd and just got the results back today... so by now they should be quatruple/five times this number!!!!!!! I've been married two years and with my husband three years ^__^ I reposted this from my due date thread in April as I didn't even notice this part of the forum existed!
I'm so excited I think I might be having twins I was wondering if anyone could give me any other insight.. my HCG levels are through the ROOF! 638 at 3.5 weeks, today marks 4 weeks and I'll have my second set of numbers tomorrow!!! I have been trying to conceive for a while and when I finally fell pregnant I unfortunately had a miscarriage ... now I fell pregnant, everything is going perfect, but now I think I'm having TWINS!! I read this is common among women who have had miscarriages their first time and fell pregnant the second. There are triplets on my husbands side and twins on my side!! My prepregnancy weight was 110 and when I went to the doctor July 31st I weighed 113. Today, 8-6-12, I weigh 117!!!! :-)
My breasts get bigger by the day, and I can see my body getting ready to hold something big. I'm not gaining weight per say, but expanding if that makes sense!!! Ovulation calculator tells me I'm due April 2nd-7th My birthday is May 4th!! :-) I used to be a 34A until about 3 days ago, now I can barely fit in a 34C. I'm opting for really really light bathing suit tops cause they hurt so bad as well. I took this picture yesterday, but they have already increased immensely.. I was a size 0/XS.. now I'm a small and I don't even bother with sized clothes like that anymore lol
Does anyone have any experience with twins in their first trimester??? I want to sleep all the time, I used to stay up until 4 a.m. and now I'm passing out around 9/10 and waking up at 7 full of energy but then it drastically decreases throughout the day and I can't be in public for too long otherwise I get extremely sick and lightheaded. I'm eating, taking vitamins, keeping food down, having normal symptoms, no abnormal cramping or bleeding like I did with my last pregnancy which was a miscarriage, and it's so weird I only can eat healthy food cause I don't want my baby(ies) to be succumbed to McDonalds!!!! Lol :-) Any information is appreciated. I was very unhealthy when I miscarried and that has not been the case for months so I'm really excited to have even fallen pregnant and stay pregnant!
Also, I read high levels like this indicate a girl from other parenting websites. I know it's not a definite or even a good indicator, I just mean women who have had girls had higher levels like this also, and/or twins :-) I will post my second HCG level tomorrow, which will be 5 days from my first level of 638...so praying for a really high number Again I know the HCG levels aren't indicators on their own, and an ultrasound is really the only way, but my books and websites and family history all point to twins! Fingers crossed anyway
