So I feel like I should be having more symptoms than I am since there are two in there. I don't feel much of anything though except tired and SLIGHT nausea here and there. Should I be concerned? I don't even have a lot of CM (tmi... sorry). Just don't know what I should be feeling or experiencing. I know I am still early.
Also does anyone have any great websites or great books that they would recommend for twins?
Everyone is different. My only symptom was getting bigger as my twins developed. I did not really have any symptoms at all. Well, actually, I had a very acute sense of smell, but no aversions, no nausea, maybe a little more tired, but that's usual for me. It is more common to have double the nausea, vomiting, aversions, heartburn, etc... when it comes to having twins, but not everyone gets morning sickness even with twins.

I didn't have any ms until 7 weeks. I felt pretty bad, but never threw up. Some women have no ms with twins. Everyone is different.
I read Having Twins and More by Elizabeth Noble and The Multiple Pregnancy Source Book. Can't remember the author's name for that one. Both were decent. I skimmed through and skipped some parts. Some of the things were helpful though. Worth getting from your local library if you have that as an option.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

I didn't really start having symptoms until week 6. Before that, I had to pee a lot. Also, I thought I would be sicker than what I was. I was nauseous a lot, but only actually puked a handful of times.
The Dr. Luke book is pretty good, but don't stress over the nutrition part. I was craving protein, so I did mostly eat that. I also gained the recommended weight amount by 25 weeks. I did not "try" to put on weight, I just ate healthy, ate when hungry.
I did not get any M/S until 8 weeks(And I still have it today). Most of my symptoms before that was just being more tired than usual and some cramping, but everyone is different. The only other one is that I am getting big faster.
Thank you Mod-trishosaurus for my beautiful siggy!
I didn't really have ms.... I threw up more in my thrid trimester than my first and second combined (and even that wasn't much) I also felt physically pretty great until 27 weeks or so (even while on bedrest) just more tired than I would normally be
I had no idea I was pregnant with twins. No increased symptoms. I was shocked when we had our 9 and half week ultrasound to find out we were having twins. Don't be alarmed at the lack of symptoms. It can be normal.
