so alot of people in my family keep telling me they think i am having twins or if a stranger asks me  how far along i am they go really are you having twins? this is my second child and i havent really gained any weight i actually have lost 5 pounds  my stomach is completely firm.  i was just wondering am i really that big my last ultrasound was when i was only 7 weeks pregnant  so if there was a twin in there they may have missed one twins run in my family on both sides mother and father im just nervous my dr says theres only one but they have been known to miss this before i dont know heres my pic any opinions would be great i know no one  is a dr  this is just an opinion my next ultrasound is on the 28th of this month  so ill make sure to update everyone.

No you're not that big :) you're bump is absolutely adorable!!!!

I had all the signs of twins with my last, I was huge, my fundle height was measuring 6 weeks ahead, excessive fetal movement (like a squid was in there lol)...My midwife had me go for an ultrasound just to make sure! (My midwife doesn't do routine U/S)...
It was just one big, active boy!

I have natural twins and triplets on my side, so I was scared to deathz

I list 25 pounds with my first and only gained 10 of it back. So I was 15 pounds lighted when I gave birth then before I got pregnant. However my belly.really.showed. Everybody thought I was 40 Weeks pregnant at 28 Weeks. Your adorable. Just means baby is growing.

You look fine to me. I'm getting the same thing already though and I'm 15 weeks. At one point I broke down at tears when I got home. I hate how people think they can just go ahead and comment on a pregnant woman's body, but it's rude on anyone else. We are even more emotional than "normal" people about our bodies.

With my first 3 I was so small I didn't show until 7- 8 months. All girls. My 4th, my first boy I showed at like 7 weeks lol...how old is your first, and do you know what you're having?

I don't see where they'd ask about twins. Sorry you feel like you look bigger but I think you look great.

This is whats going on with me right now, ish. I have somehow gained 20lbs in 28 weeks, but its all belly/baby!! I started getting the "well, you look ready to.pop!!" Comments and I just laugh and say, nope, due in July and.get the O.O stares.... ugh. But there is only one in there so... where did all the weight and this belly come from?

Everyone grows differently. I got upset that I grew so fast in the beginning with this one (my first girl and my 3rd baby). I am now just about done and I have put on 45 lbs! My doc isn't worried...and I'm truly not either because I know how hard I work out...it's just going to suck for a while! LOL.
