We are having twins got confirmed hbs and both babies measuring where they should. But my question is I'm on crinone bc I have to be I go for weekly checks it was 16.9 last & 15 something this week do I need to double the dose since there's two babies? With my pregnancy with my daughter it never went over 16 even with crinone but I didn't know if I needed it twice a day with twins sure ill ask my ob Monday he wasn't concerned about the drop Tia

this is a question for your care provider. They are really the only ones qualified to determine how your care differs for twins.

I am not sure if you need to double down for twins - I was on supplements (post-IVF) until week 9 and they wanted my numbers above 15.  Congratulations to you!  Talk to your doctor and see what they say.

15 is a pretty borderline number with a singleton. Some OB's are okay with anything over 10, some want it over 15, some prefer over 20 (and that is for singletons, not sure what numbers they want to see with multiples.)

With your history of miscarriage, I would not be surprised if they want your dose to increase, I would certainly ask them.

Congratulations on your twins!
