Twins?

I am only 9 weeks with my third baby and I am already showing quite a bit. This is unsual for me, with my last two I did not show for a long time. My dh is worried that it is twins. Now he has got me nervous, my next appointment with my midwife is not for two weeks. Did those that had twins know or have any clue that they were prego with multiples before the dr confirmed?

Re: Twins?

Well, the more pregnancies you have the earlier you show most of the time. That being said, I had a feeling before it was confirmed - but mine wasn't confirmed by u/s until 20 weeks and I had one Dr. tell me that I wasn't pregnant with twins before that (just by feeling my tummy, but he's an idiot, LOL). I was bigger this time - but it was my second pregnancy so I never second guessed it. There are a few other things that could be making you bigger (other than it being your third pregnancy). If you're concerned about it, I would call your MW - but I'm not sure what they would do as that depends on the person.

Re: Twins?

Yeah you can show more & be bigger w/the more pregnancies... and it also depends on how long prior you had your last kiddo. This time I showed super fast but it was also my 6th pregnancy & my body was just like BOOM LOL But I'd ask your m/w if you're concerned.

Like what? I am not really concerned about being big, just at the thought of have twins. It is not in my master plan

Re: Twins?

like if it was excessive fluid it could be a sign of a problem...not sure if that what Kim means or not.

most people I know pop out super fast with subsequent pregnacies.. I know I did... everyone thought I was carrying twins (even though I had no weight gain till the very end of pregnancy) but I wasnt it was just one 9lb 14oz baby in there

Well Alison... 9lbs. 14oz. singleton would be like having twins that are 4lbs. 15 oz. each.
