    Hi Ladies,

    I'm just about 7 weeks and will be having my first scan next week at my clinic, we've had IVF with 2 embies put back in.

    Has anyone out there experienced any specific symptoms and then found out it's twins?

    I'm weeing for england, very hungry, quite dizzy when i get up in the morning and of course, tired all the time.

    I would love it to be two and it feels kind of right, but would love to hear from anyone who has been through this.:thumbup:

    Thanks,
    Liz

    no specific symptoms with me.

    I was tireder than i have been with my previous pregnancies, and less sick, oddly enough. i also grew much quicker, but then its my third pregnancy so may have more to do with that. although i look obviously pregnant now and im only 13 weeks.

    My babies are icsi twins and I felt that the symptoms were just extremes of things you could possibly feel to the point I thought it was all in my head. The lady doing my scan explained afterwards that was why, my hubby knew I was pregnant before I even tested despite my negativity and then he was right there was two! Mainly though I felt tired, hungry a lot, nausea a lot, sore & large boobs-still going on now, implant bleed, lots of pains/cramping I thought it was ectopic and mood swings! Good luck x

    I really hope it's twins.

    I'm hoping I'm having twins too. I'd love more then one child but I've found pregnancy so difficult I'm not sure I want to go through it again! Two at once would be the ideal solution.

    Haha, i love this! I think the exact same thing but i felt silly for mentioning it before now!

    I was temping while TTC and in my luteal phase i had a big implantation dip, then it shot back up then it dipped again the next day, and then shot back up. Both of these dips were below coverline. I was thinking 2 implantation dips, 2 babies??

    I then got my BFP quite early, i know its not that unusual but i started thinking my levels could be higher if there were 2 babies??

    Also, my mum and DH's mum were both twins and i always had a "feeling" i would have them!!

    The only symptoms i have are really heavy, huge, tender boobs. I heard your symptoms are meant to be twice as bad with twins so that bit doesn't add up!!

    I'll just wait and see on my scan, hopefully in 5 weeks!! It seems ages!!

    I love this thread!

    I've had a feeling I may be having twins. I'm having a clomid bean so my chances are already considerably higher. But I've been sooooo tired, I'd even say exhausted. I've been sleeping for 3 hours every afternoon as well as my usual 10 hours at night. I've not yet been sick, but right from implantation I've felt sick all day every day.

    It's hard to explain bit I just have a feeling. With ds I just knew I was having a boy

    Good luck ladies xxx

    I have the feeling too. I DID have a twin ectopic so that and my age 36, increases my chances. I tested before AF was due with a FRER in the afternoon and got a BFP DARK before the pee hit the control line, it took under 20 seconds. dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, mood swings, thirsty, hormonal headaches, sinuses are NUTS. I can smell like a hound dog, really boated, everythign feels pretty much the same except really sore boobs last time and of course minus the pain of last time. I'm sure I will know soon enough.

    Ha ha I sort of wonder if I'm having twins, but I wondered that last pregnancy and it was only one, so this time I am hesitant to trust my mommy instinct:haha:

    Possible reasons I could have twins (besides gut feeling): my mom had fraternal twins (at my age exactly actually - 26), my nausea started at 3dpo (seriously...I was certain I was pregnant after a couple days of it) and got my bfp at 9dpo. My tummy is also growing fast (although that is to be expected with pregnancy #2) and I'm in maternity jeans at 5 weeks!

    I have a scan June 30 (dating scan because of the early nausea and early bfp even though I told my doctor I was sure about my dates).

    I will try to remember to update this thread then:flower:

    Hi Ladies,

    I was right! It's twins! I can't tell you how I knew, I just did!

    I had my 7 week 4 day scan today (early as they are IVF beans), we could see their little heatbeats flickering, it was incredible.

    I have been dizzy and lightheaded, hungry, tired and weeing all the time - but no sickness. Oh and sniffley, had a bit of a cold too.
    But all these have been fine to manage, so nothing too drastic.

    I'm so excited i'm grinning like a moron in the office and no one knows!!

    Liz x
