Does This Sound Like Twins? Desperate for Opinions!
I am 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant. My pregnancy symptoms have been a lot more severe during this pregnancy than my others. I have also put on a lot more weight than ever before and I eat a very healthy diet. When my midwife checked my pregnancy diet sheet, she said there wasn't anything on it that would cause that kind of weight gain.
My iron was low when checked at my first prenatal, so I took iron pills for the next month. Then, at my last prenatal, my iron was still low. I'm now on Floradix.
When my midwife checked for the fetal heartbeat, it really sounded like there were 2 of them on opposite sides of my stomach. They were slightly different rates. One was a little slower than the other . She checked back and forth a couple of times just to make sure they stayed consistent. They did. She told me that only with an ultrasound would she feel 100% comfortable telling me that I was definitely having twins because she didn't want to get my hopes up. But, it's driving me crazy!! I'm dying to know for sure. I want it to be twins SO bad.
My ultrasound is on the 18th 12/18/201. I'm afraid I'll go crazy between now and then. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks :)
