Am I having twins?

I recently found out I'm pregnant with my second and am concerned I'm having twins. I know I'm only about 5 weeks along but I feel like I'm around 10. Really there's no question about how far along I am. With my first pregnancy, I didn't have any emotional or real physical changes until I was about 10-12 weeks but I'm already feeling like my uterus is bigger and my emotions are all over the place. Did this happen to any other mothers of twins?

  • every pregnancy is different, and may time during a second pregnancy you show sooner and have symptoms sooner.. from what i have heard anyway

  • Every pregnancy is different. I don't have twins but I'm pregnant with my third. My first I was sick ALL the time. The second not so much...and this one on and off. I got HUGE right away this time around. I didn't notice much of an emotional change with my first but my second I was ALL over the place and this time I'm more or less leveled my husband puts it "pregnancy days". I wouldn't worry about it unless the doctor says something....and then you just do what you have to do. :) You'll be fine momma.

  • I was wearing maternity clothes for comfort from the bloating I felt at 6 weeks, you feel things more intensely after your first pregnancy. Many moms on the groups I belonged to including myself felt like this, but only maybe 5 out of 200+ women are having twins....

  • every pregnancy is different and since this is your second things will probably hit you faster. It doesnt mean its twins...just that its different.

  • You will definitely be more in tune with your body with each subsequent pregnancy. I just gave birth to twins aprox 7 weeks ago and I didn't "feel" any different in the begging than I had with my previous 3 pregnancies. You'll find out when you get your first ultrasound.
