Im 6 weeks pregnant and confused!!??

Ok I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second child and I am already showing, i have gained 5-6 lbs. i can feel movement and dont fit into any of my clothes anymore....alot of people keep telling me it could be twins. my dad is a fraternal twins and twins and triplets are very common in my family. I have my first doctors visit monday 6 and they told me we would only do bloodwork....i was wanting to do an ultrasound to find out....could it be that i am pregnant with twins???

  • You definitely could be pregnant with twins or could be further along then you think, perhaps your last period wasn't really a period at all just some bleeding related to the pregancy. At six weeks the baby or babies are so tiny you should not be feeling any movement , it's heart has just started beating.

  • It is possible you could be pregnant with twins or it could just be bloating. At 6 weeks I was very bloated and had a hard time fitting into my clothes. You might be able to ask for an ultrasound at your appt.

  • At 6 weeks "pregnant" you are really only 4 weeks pregnant, remember, because how far along you are is measured by LMP, not by gestational age.

    I echo the first poster.
