I hope I've posted this in the right place, I couldn't see a section about pregnancy with multiples.

I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant with twins, our dating scan is next week. I found out I was having twins at a private scan we paid to have at week 8.

The past week my stomach has got HUGE and I mean I look at least 6 months! I've actually lost 6lb since I discovered I was pregnant too so I'm lighter than my pre pregnancy weight.

I am a bigger girl anyway but I wasn't prepared to have a bump this big this early even with twins.

Anyone else pregnant with twins popped this early?

I'm hoping it's a good thing that they are both in the growing away!

Hi, I don't know anything about having twins! But thought I would let you know there's a section called 'multiple births' under 'being a parent' - bit of an odd place to put it, but you may find more similar people there!

@UrsulaSings thank you! I'll repost there smile

Hi OP Multiple Births can be very quiet - not sure why as there are quite a few twin++ parents here!

I didn't pop that early but it varies lots. (Mine are 2y4m now.) Congrats!

Thank you! I've reposted over there, was going to delete this one but I'm using the app and not sure how to!
I think I'm going to be one of those ladies that looks like I've swallowed a beach ball by the end grin

I’m no expecting twins but I get a bump from conception.
When I was 12 weeks pregnant with my DD I went for my 12 week scan and they thought I must have my dates wrong and was more likely over 20 weeks. I knew my dates were right because I had had 2 early scan due to bleeding. They were surprised but said wow you are just of those people who look pregnant straight away.
I’m now pregnant again and I’m only 7 weeks and look 6 months pregnant, makes it very hard to hide my pregnancy until after the 12 week scan.

I’m 13 weeks with twins, found out at 12 week scan but I wasn’t surprised as I had a big bump at 11 weeks! I think my actual “bump” is certainly bigger than with my singleton, it appeared at about 11 weeks and I had awful stretching pains with it. I think I’m also quite bloated, much more so that I was with DD1 - I guess that if you’ve got extra hormone, you get extra symptoms, so maybe extra bloating? Hope so, anyway!
