I'm roughly 9 weeks pregnant with my third & I am apparently really big. I feel a lot bigger than I have done with the last two pregnancies, in fact it's been the hardest pregnancy in a lot of ways. Everyone is determined I'm carrying twins & I am freaking out 😱 Please somebody tell me that they too were bigger with their third...that it was harder for them...but they were still only carrying one child 😂
I have had a scan (had to have early scan at 6 weeks due to pain) & there was only one sac & one heartbeat. And still everyone is like 'could be hiding behind' 😂😂 please somebody just tell me this is normal for number three 😂😂
I debated that but I have an NHS dating scan next month. Although the whole 'baby number two is hiding' doesn't help put me at ease even with a scan 😂 Think i'm just going to become a recluse for the next few months & avoid people 🙈
You have very rude friends. People tried that shit with me as well. Its horrifically rude!
I wouldn’t describe it as rude really. A lot of people find pregnancy exciting. I got huge with my 3rd pregnancy, All the usual symptoms were more intense too, we all joked about** it being twins. I wasn’t overly surprised when the scan revealed 2 tbh
My sister got pregnant shortly after me, 3rd pregnancy too and big bump quickly but 1 baby so it’s no real indicator I don’t think
If there was only one sac and one heartbeat visible at 6 weeks then you're definitely only carrying the one - it wouldn't be possible for another to "hide behind" it! But by the third time your muscles just aren't as tight as they used to be - couple that with the inevitable bloating you get in the first trimester and yes, you'll have a bump. Doesn't help when people try to scare you by insisting it might be twins though - I had that a lot with my third too.
I know it sounda daft but I am so relieved other people have experienced it 😂 My first two pregnancies were perfect; no adverse symptoms, no sickness, really tiny, neat little bump. This one? I've had sickness, nausea, dizziness, & the bump is just reminiscent of me having swallowed a beach ball 😂😂
ArkAdyRose that was my thought too; surely something would be visible if there were two floating around!!
I don't think my friends are rude (maybe the stranger was!!) they just like being involved but they also know how much it freaks me out to think about twins. They're just mean!!
I'm having twins and the main indicator for me was really bad morning sickness in the first tri. I was showing quite early, but not hugely so. A couple of my friends were surprised when I told them because they thought I'd be bigger.
I'm on my third and huge. Also feel really ill this time around, but definitely only one baby bouncing around in there. I had similar comments and honestly I'm sick to death of people making comments on my body.
I'm pregnant with my third (33wks) and I am pretty much told on a daily basis how big I am. People still say 'Are you sure there's only one in there' ....it drives me mad. I think it's rude tbh, I think when you become pregnant people think it's their right to comment on your size. They wouldn't dream of it if you weren't pregnant!!!
Unfortunately once you get passed the first pregnancy the muscles etc 'give way' a lot easier so you will be bigger than with previous pregnancies.
Twins here too, and they were definitely visible on a 6 week scan - 2 sacs, 2 very-tiny-but-distinct heartbeats. As others have said, there’s not a lot for one to hide behind . Hope you’re feeling much better soon.
I am gleefully enjoying the look on the faces of people who say “are you sure you haven’t got two in there, ha ha” when I reply “I have, actually...” Hopefully it may discourage them from trying that one on someone else!
