Questions for Mums to Twins!


Did you just 'know' you were having multiples?
Were your symptoms different compared to previous pregnancies?
What symptoms did you have?

Me? I've vlogged everything this time around.
Nausea, upset stomach and fatigue began at just 4DPO.
I got my with a FRER at 10DPO, also got 1-2 on a digi.
I got 2-3 on a digi at 15DPO (AF due day).

With DD I came off the pill and we were NTNP. I noticed one day my boobs were tender, realised my period would have been due around then and tested to find I was pregnant. First trimester was a breeze compared to this time around. I was tired sure, but was also eating loads and generally feeling fine.

To try for baby #2 I came off the copper coil (hormone free). Noticed new and more intense symptoms from 3-4 DPO. Since then I have been constantly exhausted, I sleep 9-10 hours at night and find myself getting drowsy around 1pm when my sickness wears off. My boobs feel like they're on fire they're bulging so much and I've had to buy wireless bras.

I can't eat before 1pm, food smells and sights make me feel nauseous before then and I am getting pain in my abdomen (dull cramps with the odd muscle twinge over the last few weeks). I'm not concerned about the pains but I never had these before either.

To sum it all up, I'm getting way more symptoms at a higher level of intensity and I got them from only days after I ovulated.

This is my 3rd pregnancy, I had a MMC in 2009, DD was born in 2012.

Open to suggestions, I know it doesn't necessarily mean a multiple pregnancy, but I am definitely suspicious!

UPDATE: I had my scan, it's a singleton! And typically a few days before the scan my symptoms backed off sooo much. Little monkey!

This is how bloated I am at 7 weeks!
I know you're supposed to show sooner with your second baby but woah?!

I'm the same. Super bloated too. But if I lie down and press I can feel that baby isn't above my pubic bone so I know it's just bloat. Really hard to hide.

Also exhausted and really struggling with it.

Sorry can't answer questions about twins x

Is just super busy but I love it. Going from 1 to 2 is the hardest though. Any more after 3 and they just slot right in 😊

With my daughter I got a positive test a whole week before my period was due. This time I didnít get a positive til the day my period was due and it was super light. I had bleeding at 5+2. My numbers were in the 4000 but we only saw one sac on the screen. Went back at 6+6 when we discovered twins. Literally had no clue. I was more tired, but that was about it. I was extremely surprised. Even now Iím about to give birth and Iím still surprised lmao. I also just had the Mirena removed so I was surprised to get pregnant so quickly to begin with so to be hit with twins as well just made my whole world go upside down

How strange! So tests aren't a reliable indicator then.

What about symptoms? Did they come on stronger or sooner with your boys? X
