Sickness all day everyday, had a scan @ 6weeks showed one baby, 12 week scan this Monday just gone and told I'm expecting identical twins!!!! My husband kept joking I was having twins as so sick and swollen stomach. Still shocked as also have 3 yr old son. Fun times ahead for us but will be worth every minute!

darn..not me

I wanted to have twins in the worse way. I thought I'd have a pretty good shot, My mother was a twin with a brother, I am a identical twin. But, after 6 babies 2 miscarriages I believe I'll wait for grandtwins!!

Surprise Twins

Had nooo idea I was pregnant with fraternal twins untill I was 5 mos. pregnant & went for my 1st ultrasound! Was wondering why I felt so sick all the time & why I was measuring farther along then what I was. Didn't know twins ran on my dad's side untill I called him with the big suprise. Am now 28 wks. & expecting to see my little girl & boy sometime around mid-June. :)

I had a feeling I might be having twins,but it was only because I was so sick and the feeling of been sick was allways there even at night.i am now nearl 14 weeks and im huge,look more like 5 month,but most of it is because im bloating so much after eating.im also constantly tired and acheing.this pregnancy really is totally different to my two others x

Morning Sickness with twins

I am 11 weeks and my morining sickness with my twins are the worse I have ever felt. I am nearing the end of my first trimester but i had a difficult time with this. I found that tortillia chips and medium salsa help a lot as well as Mexican food. I also have tried watermelon, but the most effective method of getting rid of nausea for me is intercourse. After we did the nausea completely went away and my energy level also picked up. Ladies this may be unconventional but it works for me, not to mention my husband is happy about this too.

Joked about twins

I am 10 weeks pregnant with twins. Me and my husband joked about having twins and he would tease me and say "you know twins run in my family." Then he would say he was just joking and that he heard something like that when he was younger but wasnt sure. I went for my ultrasound and the technician let me see the baby's heartbeat and confirmed that it was one. When we finally spoke with the doctor he said "well we saw two," and I said "Two what??" and he said two babies and one was hiding behind the other. I was in shock. I did not hear anything else the doctor was saying from that point on it sounded like "wa,wa,wa,wa," My husband started laughing so hard and hes still laughs everytime he looks at me. I have always admired twins but I never thought I would be blessed with them.
