Haven't been for any scans yet but I'm probably about 8-9 weeks pregnant based on my last period. I have a strong feeling I'm having twins. In fact I'm convinced it's twins. Non identical Twins do run in my family and I am completely unable to get through the day. I nap at all times possible and can sleep for 12-15 hours straight at night if given the chance which is so unlike me. I haven't been pregnant before so I don't have anything to compare this pregnancy to but the fact that I just feel as though it's 2 in me! My stomach isn't showing but I can pee three times in an hour compared to my usual really good bladder control. I have extreme nausea and water is the only thing I can hold down so I have lost weight. My nose is super sensitive and the thought of some foods makes me want to throw up. Anyone else felt like this and actually been carrying twins or am I setting myself up for heartbreak because I am really excited. Thank you
I was convinced I was having twins too as my HCG levels were so high in the early stages of pregnancy. I can remember being so shocked when there was only one baby after scanning.
Try not to put too much store in your feelings as id hate for you to feel disappointed. Early pregnancy does make many people feel absolutely rotten so strong symptoms are often just indicative of pregnancy and nothing more.
Fingers crossed you get your wish! I'm 9+2 however and have never felt so exhausted in my life and am definitely only having one. I was convinced it was twins due to the exhaustion and nausea that I'd never had in a pregnancy before. Good luck!
I felt like that with both of my pregnancies. Both were single babies. Have had 2 friends who had twins and both had much easier pregnancies in the beginning stages than I did. Small sample of people, I know, but not all twin pregnancies are awful. Fingers crossed that you feel better soon and once you have your scan you will know for sure!
I felt twice as pregnant the 2nd time round and had twins. I actually commented as I got onto the bed to have my 12 week scan that j reckoned it was twins and the sonography scoffed at me. I was right and dh didn't talk for about 6 hours.
It's so nice to hear what other people are going through and how they felt during their pregnancy. It's so exciting, I'm really happy for everyone and pray I'm having twins too! Strange to think my symptoms are usual for a singleton. I assumed they were extremely elevated. Guess I'm the baby if it's not twins, although all pregnancies are difficult to be fair and different. I just feel so exhausted
I'm 15+5 along with twins and I was convinced that I was having them before I found out. Like you, they run in my family, but this is my first pregnancy so I had no way of distinguishing my twins symptoms from what a normal pregnancy would feel like. I guess I just had a feeling, I talked/joked about twins with my partner a lot in the first month after we found out, and even my GP mentioned twins when I went and saw her to get something to help me with my nausea, because she said that my symptoms fit the profile of a multiple pregnancy. Then we had a private scan at 8 weeks and... twins.
If we'd just seen one inside we would have been just as thrilled. I think when you get a scan at 8 weeks all you are looking for is reassurance that there's a heartbeat in there. In fact finding out I'm having twins made me even more paranoid about miscarriage as I have twice as much to lose. Anyway we are absolutely thrilled about our twins and I can't wait to go back to the private scanning place again next weekend to get a gender scan and find out what we're having!
Twins didn't enter my mind once. I felt dreadful in early pregnancy, sick up to 3 times s day, sleeping 6pm-7:30am and still feeling exhausted, crying a lot as I felt so terrible. I remember saying to dh that this is what dying must feel like.
At our 13 week scan we were gobsmacked when we were told it was twins! They are now 3 and it feels like yesterday
