I tested positive at only one week pregnant. I've heard this means twins. Does anyone know if that's true?

  • never heard that but that makes sense since you produce more hormone then a single. maybe even triplets!!!! ;o)

  • No, not really. When I was pregnant with twins I didn't test positive for ages.

  • It can sometimes. It just means your producing more hormones, than a normal pregnancy.

  • LOL...thats definately a new one! I have had 6 pregnancies...all I found out within two weeks of conceiving...I get super crabby right away...I think it is the surge of hormones..I am normally very easy going...anyway...I doubt it. I never had twins.

  • With my first one my test showed postive right away. With the baby I am pregnant with now it took 6 weeks to show positive. I doubt that showing up right away means twins.

  • you will not test positive at one week pregnant. You have to account for when you had your last period. It's more likely that you are about 4 or 5 weeks

  • How many days past ovulation are you talking about? Because for a 40 week pregnancy you are already close to 4 weeks by the time you would miss a period (assuming a regular 28 days cycle...). Which means that at 1 week you wouldn't have even ovulated yet!

    The earliest I ever got a + was at 9 or 10 days past ovulation, which means I was about 3.5 weeks ago. I would have been due for my period at 12-13 days past ovulation. (There was only 1 by the way lol).

  • Oops... leave out the word "ago" in my response. I meant to write "along".

  • Not necessarily, but your HCG count would be higher than a normal pregnancy. My SIL was pregnant with twins, and the dr said you are either prego with twins or are 17 weeks pregnant. She was prego with twins. Good luck
