  • o everybody says that lol! everytime i was pregnant everybody said that to me lol. but anyway, to answer your question.... the other way you could find out if you're having twins would be to count the babies after they're born.

  • You're not going to know for sure until you hear two heartbeats or see two babies via ultrasound :) It's normal to bloat right away then it could go down a bit.

  • sometimes the midwife or dr will be able to tell by feeling your uterus, and then later the position of the baby (or babies). almost always an ultrasound will show twins but sometimes one is missed! sometimes they can pick up 2 heart beats with a doppler, but they definitely could miss one.
