Did Anyone Think They Were Having Twins?

Did any of you moms have any inclination you were having twins before you knew? Any dreams or hunches? Also, did any of you have undetected twins in your first ultrasound or beyond?

Pretty sure
by: MJJ

I had no clue with my first set of twins but I've had this feeling we'd have another set for a full year before we concieved our second set. I'd even contacted another mom with two sets to ask her how it was months before getting pregnant. After I conceived, it felt so similar to the last pregnancy that I was sure it was twins before the ultrasound.

No but my son did
by: Anonymous

I didn't know but my 6 year old son told my that it was two girls. I told him that wasn't funny and didn't think much of it until I went to my first Dr appt and they did an ultrasound to see how far along I was. I was in shock when the tech said it was twins. I am only 13 wks and don't know the sex of the twins yet but we will see if he was right when its time:)

I knew. I had been through IUI with injectables. There were 2 eggs that were the ideal size before insemination. When I went for my HcG test at the fertility office, my first beta was 596 when they expected it to be between 50-100. I reviewed the Betabase and saw that I was average for triplets. This terrified me due to the possiblity of selective reduction. However, I knew that it was very unlikely unless one of the 2 eggs had split again. So when the ultrasound revealed twins, we were simply relieved there weren't more and happy that we weren't crazy ;-).

I knew
by: Rhonda

this is my 4 pregnancy and I just knew from the very beginning that something was differnt. I kept telling everybody that it was twins. They all thought I was crazy, but I just knew. My daughter was hopeing for triplets.

Funny you just asked the same question I just posted this morning...Maybe they aren't going post mine as well. I have been saying they and them and babies all the way up to my ultrasound. It was no shock when I got the news, because somehow...I already knew and had already come to terms with having two, It went a little bit different with my husband. We already have a little girl who is about to turn 5, and now b/g twins on the way!

Any pregnant women unsure of what they are having I always ask them what comes out first, he or she, and what they are dreaming about having, call it women's intuition!
