How did you feel before finding out you were carrying twins?
Im sure you probably get tired of people coming in here and asking you all kinds of questions but I can't help it! lol.
My question is: How did you feel before you found out you were having twins? Did you just know?
The reason I ask is because before I knew I was pregnant, I had these weird cramps/pains on BOTH sides of my uterus. I'm gaining a TON of weight but its going straight to my stomach, I mean, all my clothes still fit except my pants I cant button them! I've resorted to using a hair tie over the button and through the loop lol.
My mind has been racing on the fact that I may be having twins ever since I found out I was pregnant. When I went for bloods to make sure they were doubling every 48 hours, I found out they were tripling.
With my first pregnancy (which ended in MC@12wks) I knew from day one I was carrying a little girl. Something just told me I was having a baby girl. This time, I don't have a clue! Old wives tales claim if you crave sweets its a girl and sour its a boy, both make me absolutely sick!
During the first pregnancy my morning sickness was rare, this time its all day and night, no matter what I do.
Im going crazy! lol.
I have my first ultrasound on April 19th so I'll know for sure then, I was just curious to how you ladies were feeling before finding out.
i just knew so diffrent from my singleton , tired alot nausea all day headaches wouldnt go away , gaining weight and eating like i havnt in about 3 weeks lol ended up in the epu at 5 weeks due to lot of cramping thats when i found out there were 2
all the symptoms were definetly alot worse and stronger than my previous pregnancy. I took a few tests before it was positive because i just knew the first 2 were not telling me the truth, i felt awful. was in alot of pain ( cramping, period pains all down the bottom of my stomach) end up going to casualty i was that sore. Next day i got a scan and was confirmed i was 11 weeks with twins
i just felt "different" to when i did with my son, i cant really explain it. at first i had no symptoms, then they arrived like a ton of bricks, felt shattered, sick, nauseous, dizziness was unreal, everyone said i must be having a girl. i googled twin pregnancy as my ohs dad was a twin(ive since learnt that that makes no difference),and i suspected it could be, but the symptoms seemed horrendous with twins so i thought-nah its not, it must be a girl. anyway i got sent for an early scan at 7 wks as i had alot of pain low down on my left. they wanted to rule out ectopic. oh joked on the way there theyd find two, well sure enough they did find two!! and mine are identical so arent even hereditory anyway.
some things are just meant to be.
My girls were my first, but other than cramps at the beginning (which just made me believe my period was coming), that faded within a week I didn't have any symptoms. I went to the scan believing that they were going to tell me that I had made a mistake and I wasn't pregnant!
I was in shock when they told me that not only was I pregnant, I was expecting twins.
Went from feeling fine one day to just awful the next and it got worse. Did a pregnancy test 5 days before my period as I just knew I was pregnant. It came up positive. I had horrible cramps and pains in my right ovary so I was sent to EPU for suspected ectopic. Had a scan and it was confirmed I was 5-6 wks pregnant with twins. good luck
