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 ????

Twins is a possibility, but that might not be what you are experiencing. Each pregnancy is going to be different. I have three kids (boy, girl, girl) and all three of mine have been very different. I carried differently with each one. I experienced different things with each one throughout each pregnancy. Just like no two children are alike, no two pregnancies are alike. For showing that could just be that it is your third. With each pregnancy you are going to show sooner and more. So it could be possible that you are carrying twins, but your symptoms don't necessarily say twins.

That's horrible. If you really wanted to see the doctor that bad you could always go and say that your stomach hurts really bad and then mention that you think you maybe having twins or whatever. How many weeks are you?

You sound like you may be having twins. If you are over the age of 30 you have a higher chance of twins. Since your belly is so big I would think you would have to be having twins. I may be wrong though. Next time you go to the doctors make sure to mention that you think you may be having twins.

I have 2 girls. With my first I wasn't showing until well past 20 weeks. With my 2nd I was showing immediately…. like by 5 weeks I could tell something was changing, so I took a test. I got soooo many people commenting that I must be having twins, or even triplets because of how big my baby bump was early on, and how big it eventually got. I had symptoms very early also. But, I was not carrying twins. I had one little girl in there. Early ultrasound showed one baby. Subsequent ultrasounds showed one. I also asked them to double check that there were not two. They said they were sure…. but looked around a bit more anyhow just to prove to me that there really was only one. So…. really, until your next ultrasound you just won't know for sure. Best of luck to you with this pregnancy… twins or not!!!

I'm over 30 and have been pregnant twice in the past year with twins. The first time I was huge and lost them early on. The second time I wasn't as big as the first and carried them until 22.2 weeks. I gave birth to twin boys that were stillborn on the 7th of this month. However both times I was pregnant I found out I was having twins because I was bleeding and went in for a ultrasound and saw that there were two. Twins are a blessing good luck
