How early can you find out if your carrying twins? It runs really strong on my side and my husbands, I just have a feeling it might be twins so does my mom but I don't know.

My mom had twins and found out at her first vaginal ultrasound at 9 weeks. They could see two sacs and two embryos. Good luck

I've seen ultrasound pictures of twins as early as 4 weeks. I have 3 year old twins. I found out at 9 weeks. I had the flu and was sent for my first OB visit by my regular doctor. First thing they did was ultrasound me and we saw 2 beautiful babies.

Having twins on the dad's side doesn't increase your odds at all (only if they run on your side of the family) My DH is a twin and his mom had 2 sets of twins so I've looked into this DH would love for us to have twins but him being a twin doesn't increase our odds but you never know it could happen.

Not all doctors do an early ultrasound, so if you don't ask for it, you may not find out until they can hear two heart beats, or until you get the ultrasound around 16-24 weeks. But you can always ASK for an ultrasound.

I will be finding out tomorrow at my u/s. We did IUI, so we have an increased chance. I highly doubt that I'm carrying twins, but they need to check anyway.

Lurking... That's what I was going to say as well. I found out at 6w4d.
