    Hi ladies

    I was at th gp this morning and after some poking about of my tummy he looks up and says your measuring big,it could be twins!!!! so I'm getting an early scan should have the appointment in the next week or so!!!

    I know its too early to get my hopes up but I would love to be pregnant with twins again, did anyone else have this???

    Ditto what Chetnaz says.hun. You are so deserving of some good news.

    I measured big in the twin pregnancy from early on - but not outwardly. My uterus felt heavier and I had lots of pressure down below. The docs said I was measuring 4wks ahead at 10wks, but I'm not sure if this would have been the case at 5wks.

    Good luck, and let us know how you get on x

    Congrats on your pregnancy, cant wait to hear your update xxx

    i remember measuring bigger (i cant remember how much but enough to raise alarms) at my first checkup when i was like 6 weeks i think, this before we knew it was twins, but at that stage we didnt know how far i was so it was either "your further along, or multiples."

    Congrats hun..

    From your ticker I was kind of hoping it was a single bean as twin pregnancies are so risky and you have already been through way to much.

    Wishing you a wonderful and happy and healthy 9mths for you and your bean.

    I had the same thing happen to me. I was 8 weeks when I got my first scan and There was 2 fetus one had a very strong heartbeat and the other they werent sure if they could see a heartbeat. Then at 12 weeks there was only one. It's called Vanishing Twin Syndrome its not uncommon At all since more scans are being done earlier. Mine had no effect on the First one. She is doing great! I still think about the other one from time to time though. :hugs:

    i measured small my entire pregnancy with my twins, didnt start to show till my 5th month. however i stayed away from salt/sodium strictly as i didnt want to be bloated or carry a lot of excess water. Both babies were always big though, so im not sure how it all works!
