Im 33, 8 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I've had a boy and a girl, and know that the pregnancies between the two are remarkably different. This one just feels, like i'm doing it all for the first time, its so different, It HAS been 11 years since my last one. lol. I keep dreaming I'm having twins, I'm huge and look more like 5 months than 2, which is sort of embarassing when I have to say how far along I really am..... I know the more children you have the earlier you grow. but still....also I took my test at 4 weeks, and I had been feeling symptoms before that for about two weeks (what??) which is why i can't believe I wasn't farther. I took the 88 cent cheap wal mart test because I thought I probably am not, and just wishful thinking, ..before the test even filled the entire way, it was bright pos, took another one in middle of night, bright pos in 2 seconds, took another expensive test 3 days later ( i know i know) and i didn't even get the cap on and it was pos.... I've heard that having that much HGC that early can be a sign of more than one fetus.... I did have an ultra sound at 6 weeks, (ive still not seen my obgyn until 12 weeks :( ) I had an internal ultra sound, all the tech kept saying was oh, this is so early, this is the earliest you can see a baby/blob etc etc. there was a heart beat, and only one, but I feel like I should have said, could you see if there is possibly two?? lol She was very quick. I've heard of mothers having an early ultra sound and "missing a twin" until later on...... I just wonder how many of you have gone through this...... I know there is no way to tell until the US, I'm being impatient...
Also, my husband is a twin, and my father. I know the Men's side is supposed to not count but jeeze... come on. I got allot of twins from both sides coming at me. ADVICE??? EXPERIENCES ????
