I know my pregnancy hormonal brain is working overtime and I keep thinking I'm having twins. I'm only 8 weeks and have a scan booked for Wednesday due to a slight bleed so I will know then.
But I look about 4 months gone (didn't with the other two) have been much more sicker/madder more quickly too. I think it's because I have 3yo DD1, 18 mo DD2 that twins would be devastating (I get no family help either) it's literally keeping me up at night.
Hmm. I am 13 weeks pg with twins and it was quite a shock. I found out at 8 weeks after slight bleed (brown), and had NO IDEA. However I did feel a lot sicker and a lot more tired than I had with DS, but am only just showing now really and have not gained any weight yet.
We were planning to stop at 2. Never planned on 3, can't afford 3, have had to move house (moving in 3 weeks), will need bigger car, DS will be 22 months old when babies are due etc etc, but I wouldnt swap it for the world!!! .
Good luck with your scan on Weds. To be honest I was so relieved there was nothing wrong that twins was almost GOOD news!
Hi sweetkitty - like you, I already have 2 DDs (5 and 2 yrs). This time, at 6 weeks I was having quite a bit of brown/bloody discharge so had an early scan which confirmed twins. It was never in our plan either so it's taken me a while to get used to it, and now at 19 weeks I'm just about comfortable with the idea!
I had no real pregnancy symptoms with my other two - this time however I've had bad MS (which has only just started to get better), been very tired and look about 7 months pregnant already!
I have no family help either, so can fully sympathise with your fears. Good luck on Wednesday... if it is indeed twins I'll be happy to chat through any heebiejeebies!!
I didn't have a scan until 20 weeks, so I knew beforehand when I was carrying dts. I def didn't have a clue that early though, and I did think maybe it was twins with my two singles too!
The time I knew it was dts, it was because I felt movements very much earlier, was a lot sicker and more tired, and very hormonal (poor dp! ). I didn't show any earlier than with singles, but once I did start showing I grew very rapidly. The sign that really told me was feelign kicks on opposite sides of my stomach, when I knew the foetus was still only so big. It had to be twins, or an amazing rebounding baby!
the things making me think is that i have symptoms much earlier im growing much earlier and i have the most horrible pulling aching sensation in the bottom of my belly, obviously the stretching and growing but again so soon!!!!!
Hi all, i am also thinking i may be pregnant with twins, i am 9 + 4 and already feeling fluttery type movements and sickness has been awful this time. Scan not until august 14th but i already look much further gone! I was pregnant with twins two years ago but lost them at 8 weeks so i guess it is possible, bit scary as i have two boys aged 3 and 4 but only 15 days to find out! I am suffering with exhaustion really bad this time round too, it's a real effort to drag myself out of bed! good luck with your scan!
I've had two scans confirming a 'singleton' but I've got so big so quickly and have got so much movement that people keep telling me it could be twins. They're saying it sooo much that I'm actually beginning to wonder, coupled with the fact that I'm sure I'm getting kicked on either side of my bump! Anybody ever heard of them not being picked up in scans? Surely it can't be the case (not that it would be bad news but we're just not ready for two!).
I felt like this recently too. People are commenting on how big I am, I've felt much sicker than last time etc, but there's just one in there. Don't worry!! There is a lot of support out there for parents with twins, you will be ok!!
