Just curious, did you have a feeling before the scan? Was it a total shock? Was it different to a single pregnancy if you had one before? I am newly pregnant. I have no reason to suspect twins but would be thrilled if they find two at my 12 week scan.
It's interesting to hear that some people had an inkling that it was twins before the first scan. I'm 6+5 & the thought does keep popping into my mind! I had no real symptoms with my last pregnancy except tiredness but this time I've been nauseated 24-7 since just a few days post-o, can't face the thought of eating/drinking anything, exhausted all the time & am generally very moody. When I took a HPT at 3+5 the line appeared in less than half of the time suggested by the test. Oh, & my mum has twin cousins but they're the only ones I know of so it might not run in our side of the family! Don't know how I'd feel about twins - I love the idea in theory & then I start thinking about the practicalities! Scary but exciting! Can't wait for my scan to find out if my feeling is right!
It was my second pregnancy and as I felt fine, I didn't go to the midwife or doctor until I was about 14 weeks. The midwife had a listen for a heartbeat with her fetal heart monitor and she said she thought she could hear more than one heartbeat. She arranged for us to pop to the local hospital that day for a scan and the sonographer confirmed two babies. I was absolutely delighted, I can still clearly remember feeling so excited!
We went for a walk through the high street in a daze and went into Boots and bought two tiny pairs of socks.
Didn't tell anyone else until I was 18 weeks....on Christmas Day.
3am at 9 weeks (roughly i think) after a heavy bleed in the night. Assumed i was miscarrying. Awaited the doctors sympathetic expression...and then he told me it was twins. I screamed, cried, vomited...it all went on. DD was 1 at the time and a serious handful. No twins in the family, so this was the biggest shock of my life!
