Updated January 07, 2010

So your belly is starting to show really quickly. Maybe your pregnancy symptoms are a bit extreme or you feel like you have morning sickness for two. What made you think you were having twins? Sometimes it's physical evidence like two heart beats or an ultrasound. Other times it's mother's intuition or a family history of twins. Did you think you were having twins? Why? And were you right?

not sure

Been getting such bad morning sickness that I'm ALWAYS nauseous and nothing stays down but I'm always hungry. I sleep about 15 hrs a day and I'm always tired and not motivated to do anything. I am only 8 weeks and I'm showing like I'm 5-6months and I can feel movement. I have a lot more ligament pain than with my past 5 pregnancies. I just recently had a miscarriage at 20 weeks, had 2 periods and got pregnant again... I am kind of hoping for twins but I'm not really sure I could handle twins.

Double Trouble For Abby?!

I was only twenty-two, still in college and on birth control! When I took the pregnancy test I had to have my friend read it, so when I found out there were twins, I went bazurk! The woman had been staring at the monitor for a good two minutes, then smiled at me. "Your thoughts on having your child?"She had asked. "Nervous, scared and very excited!"I declared, smiling back. "And having two?"She questioned. I had stared at her like she had three heads until it finally set in. Then, I screamed. I was absolutly petrified, yet happy, yet confused- all at once! After much hypervenilation and nearly having a panic attack, I started laughing like a mad woman. Then I started crying a river. I hadn't expected two, considering the fact that there were no multiple births in my family, nor my husbands! We now have our wonderful Margret-Grace and Sofia-Grace, who are six this October! On top of that they have their younger siblings: Jean-Luc who is four, Annabelle-Evangeline who is two, Philippe-Pierre and Celestial-Fleur who are eight months and a mystery sibling, due Febuary!

Possible Twins?!

I am currently 9 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child, I understand your belly knows what it's doing after the first, but I look and feel 6 months along, my breasts quadrupled in size almost immediately, friends and even acquaintances I rarely see say I'm having twins, I had slight morning sickness at night with my lil girl and none at all with baby boy but this time I'm ill constantly. No twins on either mine or my husbands side so hopfully they will be identical twin girls!! Scan in a week and a half and soooo nervous to see how many hearts are beating in there!!!!
—Guest Chelsea

Im sure im having twins

This is my 5th pregnancy and im currently 12 weeks and just have the strongest feeling that Im carrying twins. Im not the only one to think this either as my partner does also and so too do my family and friends. Chronic morning sickness, moody as hell, dreams of having twins, seeing twins everywhere I look lol, bigger belly than any of my other pregnancies. I have my scan on Monday 15th so Im excpecting the words TWINS to be said lol. Oh well we just cant wait and maybe we will eat our words but were very much hoping it it twins xxx


No twins in our familys and no reason to suspect ever having twins. We got pregnant naturally like our other two kids and from the day I took the pregnancy test I just knew. I joked with my husband and shared all these twin dreams I was having. I was 2x as tired as I was in my past pregnancies and gained ten lbs right away. Went in and in my head I was waiting for the doctor to say one or two. She said two!! I was right and that creeped me out the most.

trust your intuition

I didn't find out until 19 weeks that we were having twins via ultrasound, though I knew long before that. I was showing at 9 weeks. Felt fetal movement at 15 weeks. My uterus was measuring above my belly button at 16 weeks and I asked me doctor to look for 2 heartbeats and sure enough, there were 2! She believed it was an echo but I had been saying all along there were 2 babies! My aunts are fraternal twins and my intuition was right! I am now 32 weeks and so excited for them to arrive!!!
