Pregnant with MoMo Twins | High Risk & Rare

First Trimester: The Shock

I had confirmed my pregnancy with my doctor at around 4 weeks through blood tests for HCG (the pregnancy hormone). They give you one test and then a second 48 hours later with the doctor looking to see if the HCG has doubled. Given how far along I was, the doctor told me she expected to see the hormone level at around 150 and double to 300. I had 400 on my first test and it went up to 1,400 in 48 hours. I asked if this was bad and the answer was not at all you just have a really strong pregnancy! I remember telling Pat and him joking, “What if it’s twins?”.
