  • I think that may mean more than 1 baby but not sure.

  • that you're pregnant ;o)

    levels should about double daily, so tripling in 48 hours is about normal.

    if doc thinks it means more than one, they'll do an US to check # of sacs

  • they check for heartbeats via u/s for multiples, sometimes twins or more can share a sac,
