How many DPO are you? Have you tested, yet?

For myself, I think I had more nauseau with my singleton then with my multiple pg, Although with my Multiple I had more Heartburn...

Sorry I'm no help! But Keep Us Posted!

I don't have any experience with clomid, but I have heard that it can increase your chances of multiples, but i don't know the %'s.

I am not sure of the percentages either, but I have also heard that taking clomid will increase your chances of multiples. This is the drug that makes you release more than one egg during ovulation, right?

I wasn't on it myself, nor did I experience any morning sickness... sorry I'm not much help in that field!

I was on Clomid when I got pregnant... my morning sickness started at 6 weeks. I still have it all day and I am 12 weeks today.

I took Clomid and got pregnant with the twins on my first cycle.

With that being said, I was sicker with my first pregnancy (singleton) than I was with the twins, and it didn't hit me as soon the 2nd time around, either.

My Dr said the percentage of twins on Clomid was 5%

I'm a twin myself, but my mom wasn't taking anything, and she never had m/s. I got pg this time on clomid. I haven't had an u/s yet, but I doubt I'll have twins. My doc told me that starting clomid before CD 5 increases your chance of multiples up to 20% (depending on the dose and why you're taking it). Starting it after day 5 only helps mature eggs that have already been released, so your chance is 2% or less. Overall, it's around 5% for anyone taking clomid, because there are a variety of reasons it's used. I was already ovulating, but I have a LPD, so I m/c every time. The clomid didn't work, so I was started on prometrium as soon as my temp dropped on CD 22.

Yes, with clomid you are at a higher risk for having multiples, most likely twins over anything more, but singletons are still most common with clomid. If you're only a few days past o, though, the nausea is probably hormone related, something you ate, or something else. It takes about 5 days for fertilized embryos to form blastocysts. After they form blasts, they implant, which takes a few days. Only after implantation does the hcg increase. The hcg typically doesn't build up to levels high enough to induce morning sickness until week 5 or 6 (3-4 weeks after o).

I've done fsh meds, though, and they have made me nauseated. Also, you may be using progesterone supplements or other pregnancy support, and those also give mock pregnancy symptoms.

If you want twins, I hope that's what you get. At the very least, I hope you get your bfp. Good luck!!
