  • I am 29 weeks pregnant with boy/girl twins. I found out I was having twins at 6 weeks. I went to the ER because I was cramping really bad... they did an ultrasound and saw 2 sacs : )

  • I was 7 weeks when I found out I was having twins. The only reason why I found out early was because I wasn't sure how far along I was. Otherwise, it would've been around 20ish weeks!

  • I was 8 weeks. I was very high risk. I had my 1st ultrasound at 5 weeks, a very quick one just to make sure things looked ok. I was scheduled a full u/s at 8 weeks..and that's when I found out I was having twins.

  • 12 weeks. the lady put the jelly on my tummy and moved the wand thingy around for like 2 minutes and then she stopped and said "okay, i don't want to freak anybody out.....but did ya'll know that you are having twins?" totally shocked us! she kept having to remind me to breathe and actually had to stop the ultrasound because i was shaking so bad!!!

  • I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks that confirmed there were two sacs, and at 7 weeks we were able to see two beating hearts.

  • I had twin girls 6 years ago. I was 2 1/2 months along when I found out. Trust me it was a shock. I had no real symptoms. I hadn't gained any weight no nausea and no soreness in my breasts. I found out at 4 months that I was having girls. I had them 6 weeks early. They weighed 4.10lbs and 4.14 lbs. They were healthy as could be. They had to stay in the NICU for a few days but they are doing fine. You can't look at them and tell they were preemies. Just make sure you get lots of rest especially when you get around 30 weeks. Remember the longer they stay in your belly the better off they are and congrats. Twins are a blessing....
