This is me and my husbands first pregnancy and we are over the moon! At my u/s yesterday they found two healthy beating hearts. (fraternal). I am 6w4d but the babies were measuring about 4 days apart. Hopefully that's normal. I have no morning sickness YET. I really just have one symptom so far and it's terrifying. I have been getting crampy feelings ever since week 4. It's such a scary feeling. No blood or spotting though. Anyone else going through the same?

Congratulations Cramping is normal, as long as its not accompanied by bleeding or its not sharp, just rest and drink lots of water Did you have no idea it was twins? like any feeling or anything? I have a feeling this is twins, just interested to know other peoples experience.

Oh goodness! Congratulations! That's a fun surprise! Everything sounds normal so far. I cramp a lot too in the beginning. Two babies- you're probably growing faster too so that might cause cramping!

Hey all thanks for the grats. . I was in clomid for 6 months so I knew there was a possibility but I still never thought it would actually happen. The only thing that made me think for just a second it might be twins was the amount of cramping and pulling I was having for as early as I was. Also my hcg at week 5 was about 10000. The doctor said originally that I was probably farther along and "off" on my dates but I knew I wasn't!!!

LadyBug- the u/s tech showed me both gestational sacs and both festuses. One is attached on my left side the other is attached on the right. YAY!!!!!

Oh wow, I think my HCG levels must be high. I didn't have a beta done, but we have these digital tests here where it reads your HCG and going by how high they are it till you how many weeks you are. In just a weeks time it went from saying I was between 3-4 weeks to 4-5 weeks to over 5 weeks (as high as it goes). I was 6 days before my period was due and I got a positive test that was darker than the control line. I can't wait for my U/S

Congrats! That's super exciting! I've been getting the cramping/pulling too. I agree it's unnerving, especially as the first and you don't have any other pregnancies to compare it to.
