when i first found out i was pregnant i thought i was possibly having twins, i put alot of weight on and had alot of pain (twinges) in my right and left ovaries i think it was them, anyway when my 12 week scan came their was only one baby, by then i had convinced myself i was having twins, (ovaries looked ok in the scan tho). but was confused with my self for thinking that lol, not had second scan yet tho. Has anyone had the same thing happen to them?

Yes I had scan at 8+3 yesterday totally convinced due to sickness being much worse than with my other 2 children (and probably because I would like 4 dc's and know that number 3 probably last one for dh!)

But no - happy healthy bean but just one! Am delighted after 3 ms's last year though.

Congratulations on just one healthy baby for you too!

yes. I woke up one night convinced I was. I can remember it so clearly. I mc one at 11 weeks

I'm so sorry, bronze. My sister lost one of her twins, too.
I didn't have a scan until 16 weeks with my twins. I was totally convinced in my own mind by then, but glad I hadn't known earlier and been able to worry about miscarrying one, or one just fading away. I hadn't mentioned my suspicions to my husband as I was afraid of looking stupid, so he was pretty shocked!

I would have loved to have another set but scan shows just the one baby this time! She kicks enough for 2 though.

I hadn't had it medically confirmed until I mc it so it wasn't so bad. Just wish I hadn't known in my gut too.
Anyway I have a beautiful dd

Yes, exactly the same. I got so fat in the first trimester that I was convinced it was twins until our scan showed just one little smudge with arms! It might have had something to do with how much I was eating to avoid nausea, but now that's settled down (phew), I seem to have stayed vaguely the same size for a little while.

Haha...ok, I'm gonna stop thinking the same way now that I've read all the above!!blush
I'm only 5 weeks, and to me, (and everyone around me!!) I am much bigger than what I was with my dd just under 2 years ago ....think I must be eating an awful lot hehe ;)

Yep - me too. At 6 weeks, I was huge (looked 4-5 months gone) had the worse MS and exhaustion AND my mum was a twin... so I paid for a scan and low and behold only one. Like another poster, now at 17 weeks and have looked the same for the past 17 weeks - well maybe a bit firmer now!!!

yes I did - and I am now 15 weeks pregnant with identicals. I was convinced from about 8 weeks (horrific vomitting, to the point of needing drips etc), and just had a feeling. At 10 weeks I got a really obvious bump and I told DH what I thought. We went for a private scan at 10+5 and as the sonographer placed the scanner on me DH piped up "there's two in there, right?" and the sonographer said "yes"... was (and is) still a bloody shock though. But now DH thinks I'm a genius for my intuition grin
