I am just 4 weeks today. I tested positive at 3 weeks. A bit early I know. I have been pregnant with twins before (miscarriage.) I am soooooo bloated and laying down flat my tummy is still sticking up higher than it was. It used to "sink in" and now it is a bit puffier than my hip bones. My uterus feels "different."

I know there is no way to know until my blood is drawn or I am past 6 weeks and can have an ultrasound...but It's been on my mind.

I wouldn't be upset by it.

Anyone else having these symptoms?

I got my DARK BFP 9dpo and twins run in my family (literally many many of them) so I wouldn't be surprised. My grandpa even told me before he passed that I would have twin boys eventually. Lol. I would be excited, but NERVOUS. Hah.

Yeah, Faternal twins run in my family as well. Don't you wish the positive test said gender and number of babies as well

Twins don't run in my family, but I tested dark pretty early. I don't feel any more bloated than normal for pregnancy for me, but my symptoms are out of control and I'll be 5 weeks tomorrow. I am nauseated like crazy, gagging, major food aversions, can't keep my eyes open, etc. They have seemed to hit so much harder much earlier than my other 4, including my last pregnancy with my DD in which I was sick and throwing up literally until the day before I delivered her. I wonder if it could be a sign of twins, Lord help. Haha!!! Plus, DH just randomly said "What if this is twins?" the other day. He's never said anything like that before with other pregnancies. Guess we'll all find out soon! I hope we have a couple of twin mommies!

That would be very exciting! With my two others I tested positive about one day after three weeks, but it was light, they were singles. Not sure about this one, I doubt it, but it would be exciting. I cant wait until you find out!!!!

I tested positive, though barely, at 9dpo, and for sure at 11dpo. Other than that, I don't have any symptoms. But I hope I am as well. My only "risk factors" are advanced maternal age, and it being my 5th pregnancy.

As I'm 38.5, I was a bit worried that I could be carrying twins, as the chance of them naturally occurring increases the older you get. You can imagine my relief when I had an u/s this week and there was only one baby on the screen!

I am early in this pregnancy and already have a super dark positive! But, with my last pregnancies before I miscarried I got dark positives early pregnancies and it was just one baby! Ha I am not sure if twins run in the family or not...but I guess it all depends.

I'm AMA and this is my 5th pregnancy...but that's the only concern I have.

I tested + at 8 DPO and my HCG numbers are high, but they were last time and she was only one =)

SOMEONE will end up with two...I can't wait to see who!!!
