Could It Be Twins

This is my 4th pregnancy. (1 miscarriage, 2 kids). This time, the signs and symptoms are so much earlier and so much more intensified. My preg testS even came back a bright positive 2 days BEFORE my expected period. The last 3 times, it didn't show pos until almost 2 weeks AFTER my expected period, and it was a faint positive. I've heard with twins everything happens times two. Could this be the case w/me? Anyone out there have twins or know the answer? Thanks!

I think everything happens earlier and stronger with subsequent pregnancies. It could be twins but there is another valuable explanation for the symptoms being strong so early on. Good luck:) Sounds like you want twins? They are so cute when they snuggle together in their crib!

Yes, I do. Girls! I have 2 boys, and I'm in desperate need of a little girl (or 2!). Do you have them? If so, was there some indication early on? I am thinking of having blood drawn to test my hcg levels. That may not be a definitive way to tell, but would it give me a clue of whether or not there's a chance I'm carrying 2?

The only way to tell is via ultrasound. If they see two sacs at 6 weeks, voila you have twins!! My HcG levels were triple the norm at each stage yet I am only pregnant with one baby. Still, good luck:)

Thank you. That solves my dilemma on whether or not to make that hour long trip to my doctor just to draw blood. I can see myself getting all excited for high hcg levels for nothing. Not that it matters whether or not there are 2, but I don't want to make myself believe something that may not be true. 1 or 2, boy or girl, it doesn't matter. It's just exciting being pregnant, right? Thanks again! Good luck to you, too, mommy-to-be!

Are their twins in you or your husband's family, cause that increases your chances of having twins

I went through the same thing and feelings. However i was not really wanting twins. however although i found out i was pregnant very early and i had really bad nausea etc and everything seemed so intence. there is only one lil baby in there and i got to see, the lil one yesterday.

There are no twins on either side... that I know of anyway. It's just so strange because my hcg levels are so much higher so much faster. I do not know the count (no blood test yet), but I tested positive SO much sooner than with my 2 sons and the one I lost. Something just "feels" different about this one. Maybe I am carrying a girl this time. (wishful thinking!)
