this is my 4th pregnancy and I cannot get the thought of twins out of my head. It is driving me crazy and I still have to wait two weeks for my first scan. I am so nervous and unconsciously keep saying 'the babies' instead of 'the baby'.
I am not sure what I am going to think if there is only one baby on the ultrasound other than ask the sonographer to really check
Am I completely insane? This is the first time I have ever even thought about twins, with my other three pregnancies I have always 'just known' what the sex was and I was always right. This time I just think I have both in here. I feel like a total wacko!
This is the first pregnancy I have had with morning sickness, this maybe TMI but my pubic hair is growing out of control to the point that I shaved it all off and then one week later I looked like I hadn't shaved it ever!! So if it's one baby, my hormones are up the wazoo! Also this was a pregnancy that happened when I just stopped breastfeeding my toddler, I am very fertile but it took 6 months of trying before I got pregnant, so I decided to stop altogether and hey presto, which means this was the first ovulation in 3 years!! I have heard that there is a chance that two eggs can be released in this case, by your body compensating.
Sorry to go on and on, but I just have to put this out somewhere. Then you can all have a good when it's only one baby!!
I had that feeling too, I told everyone before I even got pregnant that I was going to have twins next and people thought I was seriously nuts but I was right.
I kept seeing twins everywhere I went, I had dreams of twins and triplets before the scan and I was a bit naughty and told my midwife I was unsure of dates so I could get an early scan which revealed two babies.
But I was driving myself insane thinking there was two babies and not knowing for certain.
OH and I even said we would name one each on the way to the scan and seeing those two babies even though we had that feeling was such a huge shock! My best friend who I told my every thought to before we found out, she was seriously worried for me at one point cos I was twin obsessed and she still says to me now "I can't believe you knew!" Neither can I tbh.
Anyways, I hope you get the news you are hoping for and good luck for your scan, make sure you update us
Hey hun, I didn't have 'the feeling', but there are a few women here who did and were right I always know the sex of my babies too from as early as 5wks, but I didn't have the slightest idea there were two lol! Bit of a shock at 10wk scan x
I had the feeling, although I had nothing to compare it to I just knew. Coupled with dreaming about twins 3 nights in a row before my scan I said to my OH I would be a bit disappointed if I was wrong lol x
I had no clue except for the clearblue digital test said I was 3+ weeks when it should have only said 1-2 or 2 at the most. The info said it could be an indication of multiples, i just thought I had my dates wrong........ My twin boys are 1. X
i had a feeling it could be as i felt totally different to with my son. but shrugged it off and thought nah not me. oh would joke it was as i showed straight away, and other people would say-what if u get two?? then at a scan at 7 wks for pain, they found two!!!
couldnt believe it, but they do say mothers intuition.
i to had a feeling i had to take fertility treatment to get pregnant so i always knew tht there was a chance of twins just never hrourt i was lucky enuf to , only wanted 1 playmate for my 18 month old boy now i have to lol.
i did feel really diffrent than from my singleton , for example , i found out at 2 weeks pregnant after week of headaches and nausea and tiredness i took a test and came up positive i never new u could get symptoms as soon as a couple of days after conception but i did lol, ever since ive been sleeping lots eating lots, feeling sick all the time having reli bad annoying headaches
i found out at 5 n hlf weeks as was spotting but turned out to be old blood , i also used to get cramping from 4 weeks
I had no clue. They don't run in our family anywhere, and we weren't on any fertility treatments so I wasn't expecting it. Our only HCG showed normal levels for a single pregnancy. At the 6 week appointment I just about lost it when the Dr said twins. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
This is my first pregnancy though, so I haven't known what to expect at all.
