I am a mother of three girls my oldest being 5 1/2 and my youngest being 19 months, and just recently found out that i am prego again, i am having more intense symptoms this time at earlier rate and i was wondering if there are sertain symptoms more distinct symptoms that a woman whop is pregnant with twins or more could have. and what these sypmtoms are?

Welcome and congrats on your pg.

To answer your questions, maybe! Some ladies carrying multiples will have earlier and more exaggerated symptoms, BUT...just as many ladies won't. There is no way to determine multiples w/o an u/s. We have had many ladies suspect for a variety or reasons(early hpt, got big fast, cramping, severe m/s, early symptoms) , and 95% of them were carrying one beautiful babe.

Our board FAQ has lots of info that may be useful(click on the last link in my siggy). Good LUck. I suggest you ask your doc for an early u/s as that is the only way to diagnose twins.

I had little to no symptoms and other then a "feeling" that there may be two and thinking I picked up another heartbeat on my rented doppler, there were no real strong indicators until my ultrasound. Sorry to answer but not really answer at the same time!

Hi! I'm new (Just had my 6w2d us this morning) but for me, no. I have hardly any symptoms. My boobs aren't even that sickness, jsut really tired a lot. My HCG numbers weren't even that high....

and we saw twins this morning with two healthy, strong I think it is different for every single person. I was convinced it was NOT I was shocked this morning.
