  • I haven't heard that, but I've heard that the hCG can be higher.

  • no babies are not like double negatives in english class. They don't cancel each other out. In fact the hcg can often be higher would give you a postive result faster than a singleton.

  • My doctor told me that levels are often higher and quicker. My levels at 4 weeks exactly were 900 and that made him say that there could possibly be more than one baby in there. I never heard of there ever being negative levels.

  • I've never heard of that before. From what I've heard multiple pregnancies can make a pregnancy test show up quicker. If in doubt call your ob/gyn and ask for a blood test.
