I am 27 weeks pregnant and I've felt like I'm having twins from the start but no ultrasound so far and my midwife has never picked up 2 heart beats with doppler or fetoscope. I'm not growing ahead of schedule for the norm but for me I am. It is my 4 pregnancy though my first ended in miscarriage. My other 2 were perfectly healthy and good size babies but I measured 1-3 weeks behind the whole way and took forever gaining weight. I've had 4 times the symptoms this time, lots of vaginal swelling and discharge and more back pain, earlier movement and different kind of movement. I guess I'm wondering if I should fight for an ultrasound to be somehow covered by medi-cal just to make sure or if you guys think it would be obvious by this point that it's twins. I've probably only gained 16 pounds (net) because I lost about 5 pounds in the first trimester unable to keep anything down. I gained a total of 27 with both my full term pregnancies. I am a small person to begin with 5'3" and prepreg weight was 117. Plus I practice Bikram regularly.
