    Early signs of twins?

    Did any of you multiple moms have early signs of such? I had 2 mature follicles on CD 13, O'd on CD 15 and got my first faint BFP the evening of 8DPO with no hold or restriction on liquids. Normally the only preg symptoms I have before 7-8 weeks are headaches, fatique and bloating. This time however I am 4 weeks 3 days(I think... ticker will say for sure lol) and I am also dealing with nausea, dizziness, and some pretty strong cramps to name a few. My HCG last night tested at 1, 106 I think it was. I never feel this preg this early so it's making me wonder if it's a sign that I am having twins. I'll likely get an u/s in the next 2-3 weeks, so I may know then but the curiosity is killing me now lol. Does any of this sound familiar to any of you multiple moms??

    Early signs of twins?

    I don't have twins but my first beta at 4 weeks 1 day was 20,000 something and two days later it was 23,000 something. I'm only having one baby!

    I was told that the severity of pregnancy symptoms is related to the amount of HCG that you produce- more = more symptoms. Also my progesterone was sky high too! I'm sure that hormone levels is somewhat related to having twins but a scan tells you for sure!

    At least you know you have a super sticky bean growing in there!!!


    DS1🏼, DS2, DS3 Jan. '16 I'll sway for a DD for my DH!!

    Understandably so after all you've been through! Try and hang in there! FWIW, I'm rooting for twins for you! I think it would be awesome too, but I can't imagine having 5 kids !

    In my twin pg that didn't work out (but I had two placentas so still making extra hormones) I did not have symptoms particularly early and didn't even know I was pg until a month later.

    I was pretty sick with that pregnancy but overall it wasn't that much different than a standard pg (except for lots of spotting)

    Following I'm 4w5d and soooo exhausted and having a bit of nausea. I don't usually get very sick, but this is still early for me.

    That's a good number, two! I'm regretting not getting betas drawn this pregnancy. What was your progesterone? I think progesterone levels are more telling than hcg. I had levels well into twin territory with DS2 and my OB had me come in for an u/s to check, but it was just one.

    I don't know. I ended up in ER with extreme dizzy spells yesterday and some cramping. They we're the worst ER I've ever been to. 7 hours, 8 tubes of blood and 2 urine samples later (and God only knows how much money) and I was told what a 88 cent test told me in less than a minute. They wouldn't give me my prog level and just kept saying "it's normal" and at 2 AM I was too tired to argue. The only reason I know my beta is that they used the beta as their "diagnosis". I am taking prog pills though anyway.

    Oh two, that sucks. Sadly, pregnant women aren't a high priority in the ER, but that's just rude. Maybe you can call tomorrow and get a copy of your records, though. Just to have.
