  • most ppl dont show that early, but if she goes and gets an ultrasound done they should be able to tell her if its twins

  • At six weeks, the embryo is the size of a grain of rice. Two grains of rice...still tiny. I have 2 sets of twins. I didn't show either time at 6 weeks.

  • She won't show this early. Why does she think it's twins? It's too early to tell...even by ultrasound.

  • You know you could google "twins" on images. But then again you arent going to see many hugh twin bellies at 6 weeks because like everyone else said, you cant tell that early. Just too tiny.

  • Only fraternal twins run in families...through the women. You inherit the tendency to drop 2 eggs at a time. Lots of people think they're having twins because they think they're showing at 6 weeks...

  • It's still too early to tell. Is she actually farther along, maybe?

  • Sometimes after you have already had one child you may show earlier as your body knows what is going on and may start to hold the weight earlier, as well as the fact that you already have the room there. But twins are possible. But either way she wouldn't be showing...
