HCG level question -2nd beta (twins??)

I just had my second beta/preg test - HCG level is 743.  I first tested on Thursday (which was 9 days past FET using 4 - day 5 blastocysts).  My level on Thursday was 159.  Can I be having twins? Or most likely one?   Please let me know what your levels were!! Thanks!  :)

Ur levels are really good and high.. surely a chance of multiples. Did they check ur prog levels.?
only an U/S can confirm though.

My HCG level on the 9th day after 5dt was 151on a friday. I had a beta 3 days later on a monday and it was 630. I am having a singleton. Your doubling time is 43 hours. I am sure you will have a better idea after a couple more betas.

I am on day 32 of my cycle (normal length of my cycle is 26 days) so I am 6 days "late" -- but pregnant. I was tested last Monday to confirm a home test and my HCG was 44 - today, one week later, it is 1020 (I can breath a little now - I had two misscarriages, and was on EDGE waiting for these results, it will be a long 9 months). My progesterone was 15.8 today -- and was at 8.9 last Monday.

The nurse said this is "great" and "perfect" -- what does FET mean?

I didn't ask for my progesterone levels, but there were in the 30s or 40 on Thursday when I got the 159 hcg level. What is the prog. level for? I am on prog shots right now also.

Those numbers do sound high, could be twins! However I had my first HCG at 5 weeks Pregnant and it was 6,000 than had them tested at 6 weeks and it was 41,360! My numbers were very high and people thought for sure I was havingt Twins and I'm not! Just one little baby. Guess my hormones were just raging!
But I'm not sure how many weeks you were when you had your first HCG...so it could really go either way. Like the other ladies said, only an U/S will tell you for sure!

Congrats!!

Im like Gina, I had very very high HCG levels and the doctor told me to be prepared for multiples.  My 6 weeks was almost 55,000. But, just one baby.  I think it varies so much from person to person, and pregnancy to pregnancy.  Either way, it sounds like at the very least you have one very healthy baby.
