Beta levels

Hi, I have undergone an ivf cycle last month with returning 2 three day embryos back on the 17th of march, i had my first beta result on 15 dp et of 661, then at 17 dp et it was 1398
I would like to know do my bhcg numbers fall closer to a single or twin pregnancy, and how early will an ultrasound detect the no. Of sacs?

Hi there!

The beta-HCG levels are normal for a single pregnancy. A vaginal ultrasound can detect a pregnancy as early as 2 weeks post conception/ 4 weeks pregnancy, though 6 weeks pregnancy would be a more ideal time to perform an ultrasound scan.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!

Thank you DrKaul for the information, i had an ultrasound done today I'm now 6 weeks, the Dr saw one sac but no heart beat, she said we will repeat in week and see.
My question is when can a heartbeat be detected by the ultrasound?

usually at 6-7 weeks.  I know most girls that go at 5 dont see one. so maybe u caught it early.
