By Jove That's A Lotta HCG

E's beta today, at effectively 21 days past ovulation, was 4398. We have <40 hour doubling time.

How the hell many are in there? One? Two? In the name of all that is holy, three?

Given the choice of anytime in the next two weeks, E chose a week from Friday for the ultrasound. 10/12. AKA, the greatest day of the year. AKA, my birthday.

E scheduled her first pregnancy ultrasound for the day I turn 29. That foxy girl. Happy Birthday, honey, I'm carrying ___ of your seed! Let's go to Penthouse Executive Club!

Hahaha. The seed joke (yes, yes, my own joke) gets me every time. I will full-on elbow people in the ribs and wink if she is pregnant with multiples.

I so knocked her up.

Congrats on the beta numbers...could be twins...very exciting, can't wait for the u/s. Hmm mini versions of you running around...should we excited or scared? Grin, wink,wink!

Great numbers!! Well done on the power of your mighty seed! If she has twins you had better get cigars for the birth-its the natural progression from the elbow-rib-wink thing!

I am so happy for you guys. Can't wait to see the first u/s.

Here are our numbers if you want to compare (just something else to obsess about and it proves that you can't really tell based on a number):
Me: 10dpo 14, 12dpo 45, 15dpo 255, 18dpo 2235, 23dpo 15751 Just one in there

R: 9dp5dt (14dpo) - 184, 16dpo 441, 19dpo 1783, 26dpo 17977 - twins.

As you can see my 18dpo number is higher than her 19dpo number and yet she's the one with the twins. Hopefully for your sake (since there's the twin phobia) you just have one really strong HCG producer in there.
