Could it be twins?

This is my second child, and I know you show sooner the more kids you have. 

This was my belly at 17 weeks 4 days. I just feel like it's huge, my belly wasn't this big with my son until 7 months. 

I do have twins in my family, but they are identical twins (all three of my aunts had a set). I read that only non identical twins run in the family, but identical twins happen by chance. 


I guess I'm just curious as to what everyone thinks, Maybe this is normal.

I would say its normal, doesn't mean your not having twins, but you dont look that big for a second pregnancy!

I dunno...I'm only 13 weeks and showing quite a bit already and this is my second pregnancy, with the first one being twins.
Have you had an ultrasound yet? They should be able to tell you by now.

Belly size means absolutely nothing about how many there are in there.

I dont think you look big for 17 weeks and its hard to say if you have twins unless you get an ultrasound. I just know twind run in the family, not sure about identical or not but if all of your aunts have a set I would say that is definitely genetic, not just by chance!

I think it's normal. I showed a LOT faster with my second and third. It's also normal to wonder about twins. I'm pretty sure every pregnant mom thinks it's twins at some point.

I have had and ultrasound, and I should be having my second to tell gender soon. 

I guess my sister just freaked me out by saying "You are really big, I bet you have twins." 

When one of my Aunt's had her twins, the other was hidden behind the bigger of the two, she didn't know she was having twins until she gave birth to two boys. The second was much smaller, and he had a lot of health issues. 

Thank you for all the replies though, It's been almost 6 years.. I feel like I'm pregnant for the first time again, Good thing my body knows what it's doing ;)

Belly size means nothing. I get big fast too.
