Is This Twins

this is my first pregnancy, and according to my medical history, shouldn't have been able to happen, so I'm thrilled at the thought in itself. the doctor says I'm six weeks along, and my first ultrasound is in 15 days. Per my s_xual experiences with my fiance, I think it's closer to 4 weeks. but here's my question. even if it is six weeks, but most likely four, I'm already showing, enough for our roommate to notice. Twins, identical, and fraternal, run in both mine, and my fiance's family. I seem to be sleeping about 15 - 17 hours of the day, being awake for no more than 2 or 3 hours at a time. when I am awake, I'm constantly eating, my appet_te has just about tripled. I haven't had any hormones or anything tested yet, and like I said, my first ultrasound is due in 15 days. I'm wondering if this is twins, a possibility of just a really big baby, or if something else may be going on. any help would be great.

Well it could be twins, I know that your ecited abot the ultra sound. Its a bummer to wait so long. It really does sound like your having two, but it could just be a big baby. Good Luck!

A tendency for giving birth to twins runs in the family. This is especially true of fraternal (not identical) twins. It is believed that twins skip a generation - however, this belief has no factual basis and is essentially nothing more than a myth. So if your grandmother or even your mother gave birth to twins, it is possible that you are carrying the gene which causes you to release more than one egg at a time, thus increasing the odds of having twins. This Dizygotic or two-egg twinning gene is pa__sed down from female to female. So if your husband’s mother had twins, it doesn’t greatly influence the likelihood of you giving birth to twins.
