Twin Pregnancy: 10 Weird Signs You’re Carrying Two Babies

Think you’re carrying multiples? You might be right—twins are on the rise. Find out what your pregnancy symptoms have to say.

Think you're carrying multiples? You might be right—twins are on the rise. Find out if your pregnancy symptoms match these weird signs of a twin pregnancy.

The chance that you’re having twins is greater than ever before—twin pregnancies have been on the rise since 1980, and they now account for just over 3 percent of all babies born.

But are you carrying twins.

How can you tell?

What are the signs of a twin pregnancy?

10 Signs of a Twin Pregnancy

In addition to the more common early pregnancy signs, women who are pregnant with multiples may have the following twin pregnancy symptoms:

1. HCG levels

In general, a twin pregnancy causes mama’s body to produce more hCG, the hormone the body secretes during pregnancy.

In studies, moms with twin pregnancies produce more hCG and for longer periods of time than a singleton pregnancy.

Keep in mind, though, that hCG production varies widely from woman to woman so high levels should not be used as a definitive measure of whether mama is carrying twins. Some women with singleton pregnancies produce an unusually high amount of hCG, and some women carrying multiples produce an unusually low level of hCG.

Since many mamas do report higher hCG levels with twin pregnancies, other early signs of pregnancy are exacerbated in a twin pregnancy. Here, some common complaints in mamas carrying multiples:

2. Extreme morning sickness

Because of the bigger increase in several pregnancy hormones, morning sickness can be especially bad during a twin pregnancy. In studies, twin pregnancies are a risk factor for the most severe form of morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum. But, not all moms pregnant with twins will experience severe morning sickness! Some may not feel queasy at all. Every mom and pregnancy is different.

If the nausea does hit, here’s what to do:

  • Eat a healthy balanced diet: Sometimes easier said than done, but a mix of protein, fat, and complex carbs at each meal will not only nourish you and baby but help regulate blood sugar (one potential cause of morning sickness).
  • Support the liver: The liver is responsible for processing hormones and other toxins and is often overburden in first trimester of pregnancy. Milk thistle or dandelion root teas are excellent, as are safe digestive bitters, fermented foods like raw apple cider vinegar, and lemon water.
  • Boost digestion: Age old remedies of both ginger and peppermint are helpful for stomach upset and nausea. Try these ginger chews or tea and these real peppermints and/or tea.
  • Beware of the empty stomach: As soon as you wake up, eat something with protein and complex carbs. Some moms even keep whole grain crackers by their bedside. This can reduce nausea caused by sluggish bile or low blood sugar.

3. Food intolerance

Similarly to the extreme morning sickness, some mamas with a twin pregnancy notice an especially strong aversion to certain foods. Blame this (again!) on the hormonal fluctuations you’re experiencing.

Common culprits include:

  • Green leafy veggies
  • Fish/seafood
  • Coffee (When pregnant, be sure to stick to 200 mg of caffeine or less per day!)
  • Meat

Some evidence suggests that changes in taste perception during pregnancy is to blame.

Another theory suggests that food aversions are protective for the developing baby but also mentions that aversions are likely more complicated than that.

In any case, it may be best to listen to those aversions and stay away from those foods for now. Try to eat the healthy, mild tasting foods you can tolerate like broth, bananas, avocados, oats and smoothies and don’t stress about it. These aversions usually pass within a few weeks and you can get your fill of nutrient-dense foods later.

4. Extreme exhaustion

Any pregnant woman is going to be tired, but many mamas with a twin pregnancy report feeling utterly exhausted. The sharp rise in progesterone to support the gestation of two babies, combined with a higher basal metabolic rate (the rate at which the body uses energy), can cause the debilitating fatigue. Plus, the first trimester is the most critical for developing the baby’s foundational body systems (and you’re doing this for two babies!)

When you’re feeling wiped out, here’s what to do:

  • If you’re working, take naps during your lunch break.
  • Go to bed early every night (before 9 p.m.!).
  • Practice deep breathing if you’re unable to sleep.
  • A healthy diet and good prenatal can boost energy levels.
  • Some moms find foods high in B vitamins like nutritional yeast flakes or bee pollen help.
  • Drink plenty of water. Believe it or not, dehydration is a HUGE cause of fatigue.
  • Finally, walk 20 minutes a day. While it may seem like torture, it can really boost your energy! (And it’s good for your babies’ IQs.)

5. Serious breast tenderness

Pregnancy can make breasts incredibly sore and tender. This is another early pregnancy symptom that is often extreme when it’s a twin pregnancy and hormone levels are elevated. Your breasts are working overtime since they’ll have to support two babies rather than just one.

Here are some tips to reduce the pain of sore breasts:

  • Ditch the tight, underwire bras for softer ones.
  • Wear a cotton sleep bra to avoid the pain of moving in bed.
  • Avoid running, bouncing or jarring your breasts until the sensitivity subsides.
  • Consider making your breasts temporarily off limits to your partner.

6. Frequent urination

Just like with a singleton pregnancy, carrying twins can cause increased urination due to rising levels of hCG. Since twin pregnancy hCG levels rise faster than those in singleton pregnancies, the increased need to go to the bathroom may be especially obvious.

Here are some ways to deal:

  • Drink your fluids earlier in the day and stop 1-2 hours before bed.
  • Try to avoid beverages that are diuretics. This could include tea, seltzer, and coffee. Stick with hydrating electrolyte drinks like coconut water, broth or plain filtered water.
  • Empty your bladder fully by leaning forward with each pee. You can also wait a few seconds while on the toilet to be sure your bladder is completely empty.

7. Bigger belly than usual

Many women wonder, “when do you start showing with a twin pregnancy?” Well, it depends on so many factors but, in general, earlier than a singleton pregnancy!

Looking bigger than expected for gestational age is a possible sign of twin pregnancy, but keep in mind that many women show much earlier in subsequent pregnancies than their first.

Measuring the fundal height may be a more reliable identifier for possible twins.

Midwives and doctors measure the fundal height (the height of the uterus) starting at about 12 weeks of pregnancy to see that baby is growing normally. When the fundal height is larger than expected, it could mean that you’ve got twins! (Or, you have your conception or last period dates off.)

8. Higher resting heart rate

As we mentioned earlier, in pregnancy, the basal metabolic rate increases to provide nourishment for the baby. Similarly, the resting heart rate can increase too. A normal resting heart rate is around 70 beats per minute (bpm). During pregnancy that increases to 80 to 100 bpm. With a twin pregnancy, the heart rate can be even higher. After 100 bpm, tachycardia may be diagnosed. Tachycardia is often considered normal in pregnancy (so there’s no need to worry), but should be monitored by your midwife or doctor.

While you can’t necessarily stop your heart from racing, it may be beneficial to include stress reduction in your life.

Some ways to keep your system calm include:

  • Not letting your body go into low blood sugar. Eat well-balanced meals and snacks at regular intervals.
  • Practice deep breathing, visualization, and/or meditation. You can even just sit in a comfy chair and listen to some Enya!
  • Avoid high stress environments like rock concerts, bumper-to-bumper traffic, walking along busy streets, etc.
  • Use therapeutic herbs like chamomile or lavender in tea
  • Diffuse their essential oils in a diffuser.

As always, talk with your doctor about what’s best for you.

9. Moodiness

When those hormone fluctuations kick in, mood swings might not be far behind. And like with other early signs of twin pregnancy, increased moodiness due to massive biological changes may be a sign that you’re expecting two bundles of joy!

When pregnancy moodiness hits, do this:

  • Journal your feelings. You can write things that you sometimes wouldn’t say. Be free with your pen and “vent” all of your feelings without judgment.
  • Get support from a trusted person (your partner, family members, or friends).
  • Practice spirituality to keep a higher perspective and connect to peace. Whether that means go to church, join a Bible study, do meditation or practice yoga, find ways to connect to your spirit.

Also, keep in mind that intense feelings will go just as easily as they came (so don’t worry!).

10. Intuition

Some mamas just know it’s a twin pregnancy! Whether it’s a nagging thought or a dream about having two babies, intuition is a real thing, especially in pregnancy. As the saying goes, trust your gut!

How Soon Can You Tell If You Are Pregnant With Twins?

Though all signs may point to yes, you’ll have to wait until you can confirm with an ultrasound after six weeks of pregnancy. (One study found that transvaginal sonograms earlier than six weeks gestation were unreliable in picking up two gestational sacs.)

Do know that finding out you have a twin pregnancy this early means you may end up with a twin loss. Researchers estimate that 21 to 30 percent of twins pregnancies result in vanishing twin syndrome. This happens when a twin pregnancy is confirmed at around 6 weeks (with an ultrasound), but the twin has “vanished” or been reabsorbed by the next scheduled appointment (around 12 weeks). Some women would rather not know until both twins are relatively safe, while others want to know even if the chances of losing one twin are high.

How Is a Twin Pregnancy Confirmed?


While there are many signs and symptoms of a twin pregnancy, there’s only one way to know for sure—an ultrasound.

Pregnant with twins ultrasound image

Some women choose to have one done early, while other women will choose to avoid ultrasounds until the 20-week scan. Still, other women, albeit rare, have no symptoms of twins and only find out at the birth!

Besides an ultrasound, there are very few things that definitively signal a twin pregnancy. They are:

Multiple heartbeats

At your prenatal appointment, the midwife or doctor will want to check for a heartbeat, starting at around 10 to 12 weeks. Sometimes a second heartbeat can be heard. However, sometimes you can be carrying twins and still not be able to hear two heartbeats with the doppler (even when you’re looking for two!).

Abnormal AFP

Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is a protein that’s produced by the liver and yolk sac of a developing baby during pregnancy. This protein then travels into mama’s blood. During the second trimester, a test measures the amount of AFP that the fetus releases from its liver (into mom’s blood). This test is used to screen for chromosomal abnormalities or birth defects such as Down syndrome.

However, a high level of AFP may mean there are simply two babies excreting it! One study found that women carrying twins had AFP tests that were twice as high as women carrying singletons.

Can There Be a Hidden Twin?

With an early ultrasound, it’s possible for there to be a hidden twin (one twin is hiding behind the other during the scanning), but it’s rare. By the 20-week ultrasound, no doubt about it, you would know for sure whether you were having twins or not!

  1. The is Amazing Information Twins Pragnancy of Baby.

  2. Good information and almost every mother loves Spotify music
    . If you love music.

  3. Lavender may cause miscarriage, so I’d double check the lavender tea as a therapy.

  4. I am on my 4th pregnancy (I’ve had miscarriages in the past) I am 27 and my youngest child is 5. Last month I received my period I believe 8 days late. I was experiencing round ligament pain, nausea, severe headaches, and breast tenderness. I took multiple at home test and they all were negative. I ended up bleeding, not too much, but enough for me to think it was my period and it lasted about 4 days. Now this month my period is 3 weeks away ,I took a test last night and this morning because my stomach looks like I am carrying a child, I gained a good amount of weight, and my stomach feels like its stretching and heavy. I am confused… have I been pregnant since September or when I started to bleed. I just can’t believe I look this big already and I am testing positive 3 weeks before my missed period. Someone please enlighten me.

    • How did everything turn out? I am in a similar situation now. I had, what I thought was, my period last week. 3 days after my period ended I had spotting. I took a test, and it was positive. If I’m pregnant, I would be about 5.5-6 weeks. I was just shocked because I had period like bleeding and I wasn’t expecting a positive pregnancy test result. I have an appointment this week.

    • I am pregnant with my first and I am 34yrs old. Lol DID NOT think it was EVER going to happen for me and it has been my dream to be a mother since I can remember. The good Lord has finally blessed me and I am so grateful!!! About your situation, it sounds like it could have been implantation bleeding which sometimes can act as if it’s a period. And the weight gain and bigger belly could be from constipation. I am dealing with that myself. Lol and it’s a huge pain and very uncomfortable. Have you spoken to your doctor about it yet? Let me know how things go, and i will pray for you!!

    • This happened to my Mom with me. She went into the Dr and he gave no explaination and said “you’re pregnant” my mom says she thinks I had a twin that was miscarried. I be believe they used the last period before the bleeding as the start of gestation. Hope everything works out for you 🫶🏼

  5. I am on my 4th pregnancy (I’ve had miscarriages in the past) I am 27 and my youngest child is 5. Last month I received my period I believe 8 days late. I was experiencing round ligament pain, nausea, severe headaches, and breast tenderness. I took multiple at home test and they all were negative. I ended up bleeding, not too much, but enough for me to think it was my period and it lasted about 4 days. Now this month my period is 3 weeks away ,I took a test last night and this morning because my stomach looks like I am carrying a child, I gained a good amount of weight, and my stomach feels like its stretching and heavy. I am confused… have I been pregnant since September or when I started to believe. I just can’t believe I look this big already and I am testing positive 3 weeks before my missed period. Someone please enlighten me.

  6. Am 26 weeks my belly is too big, people telling I might be carrying twins can it’s be true?? Am a first mum

    • I am pregnant with my first and I am 34yrs old. Lol DID NOT think it was EVER going to happen for me and it has been my dream to be a mother since I can remember. The good Lord has finally blessed me and I am so grateful!!! About your situation, it sounds like it could have been implantation bleeding which sometimes can act as if it’s a period. And the weight gain and bigger belly could be from constipation. I would assume that your doctor would have seen a second baby in there after the 20 week mark.. it’s unusual for a baby to hide behind the other for that long.

  7. I’m 5 weeks today my hcg was at 1100 at 4 weeks am I having twins?

  8. I am 14 dpo ovulation yet no positive result when I tested, but I have been throwing up, and feeling all the food is chocked to my neck am also experiencing frequent urination and my temperature is always increasing and decreasing, pls can someone tell me what does this kind of feeling mean.

  9. am five weeks pregnancy, have not started antenatal but i have all signs of twin pregnancy and am feeling unconfortable when sleeping .am i safe advice

  10. I’m almost 10 weeks pregnant. My transvaginal ultrasound showed twins (two small yolk sacs), but no heartbeat was detected. My doctor said I’ll probably miscarry, but I haven’t had signs of that yet.

    Is it possible for the babies to be okay? From everything I’m reading, it seems to be uncommon to be this far along and not hear either of the heartbeats yet through an ultrasound, so I’m worried. Anyone had this happen?

    • I had a scan at 8weeks with my first (not twins). But there was no heart beat. I had a scan again at 9weeks still no heartbeat. I was not having any sign of a miscarriage. At 11 weeks, I miscarried. I’m sorry. Hoping it’s different for you.

    • I went in at 6 weeks, sac with no heartbeat. I went back at 8 weeks and had no heartbeat, then I went back at 10 weeks and still no heartbeat. I had to get a d and c. It was an anembryonic pregnancy. I am sorry.

      It’s been 5 months since then, I just found out on Friday, the day I was supposed to get my period that I am pregnant. My dad passed away 4 months ago, exactly 1 month after my miscarriage and he came to be in a dream Friday morning and told me that I was going to get what I desire, not to worry. I tested Friday afternoon after work, and Positive.

    • So I went in for a 8 week ultrasound was told there was no baby in the sac. I waited 8 weeks to miscarry. I didn’t take as good care of myself as I should have. I went back to my doc and because I didn’t pass tissue she ordered another ultrasound scheduled a dnc. Well went in and discovered a healthy 16 week old baby. She’s almost 1 now.

  11. I am 24yrs my first pregnant I did my ultrasound April 2022 making 3month but doesn’t show the gender of my baby and most time I crave a lot for snack and even when I ate sometimes I feel like eating more is there tend of having twin? and am planing to redo my ultrasound again soon the first ultrasound show Nov 2022 for my edd day

  12. I always feel the movement of my baby and am just 2 months pregnant and I have been dreaming about twins could there be possibility that am carrying twins

    • Babies are too small at 2 months to be felt. You are more likely feeling the muscles and ligaments down there stretching and expanding for the growing baby. Some will begin to feel movement at 16 weeks but many first time mums won’t feel anything for a few more weeks after that.

  13. I’m 44 years old and have been really in Love for two years. I’ve had 6 total pregnancies and out of that, 4 adult children . I had my 1st at 17. Now my youngest is 17. My Partner really wants kids bc he has none. I had a tubal ligation 17 years ago. I’ve visited doctors last year who tested to see if I had eggs and the dr stated I had baby eggs still( Idk what that means) I went this year to do a tubal reversal but had to reschedule bc of finances. I prayed and prayed and asked God to not let me go through menopause before I had a baby by a Man I finally loved and got the money to have the surgery. I missed my period 17 days ago and ignored it bc w/o the surgery , I felt it was impossible. My cousin talked me into taking a test, and it came out positive last Tuesday morning. It was a faded line but still very clear. I’ve been experiencing heavy Nausea, I feel heavier, blackout spells ( had them with all my kids) breast tenderness ( before tested, then went away, fatigue, my pelvic area is swollen to where I can’t see my vagina. , I can’t sleep on my stomach, I went from 120-135ibs, and yesterday I got a whiff of something that had me struggling to cook breakfast for my adoptive grandmother. As soon as I did, I went to the hospital bc I was also experiencing SOB with my normal activity. Dr originally was not concerned with the pregnancy and ordered X-rays for my chest, a cat scan, Doppler ( but didn’t perform). I refused everything but labs until a pregnancy test was done. When they were finally able to take blood, the charge nurse who had to stick me the 6th time, read the results from the computer she said they did a Urine test that was negative, but she would ask about them doing a Serum test on the blood she collected.. The charge nurse tells me they performed a Urine test. When Dr came in,20 minutes later, he only wanted to talk about the blood test and how my major organs were all doing great and he didn’t need to run all the other test, he canceled all the other test. When I brought up pregnancy test ,he said, “Glad you brought that up.” It’s negative, but retest in a week. He shook my hands and tried to leave, I stopped him. When I asked about him doing a blood test, he stated he would but then noticed before leaving that they did do blood, and it said I was negative. He stated bc of my concern with what I was feeling, said Remember it’s not a tubal if you’re not experiencing any pain. ( something I was concerned about) When the charge nurse discharged me, she told me to retest in a week, I asked her again, did he do Urine or blood? She stated again, Urine. I don’t know what to believe. I feel different, still having the symptoms, but I feel crazy. I feel there’s something inside of me, but just feel crazy bc of the tubal. The hospital said I would be 7 weeks off pregnant. My ovulation calendar puts me at 8 weeks, 6 days. Is that too early for a Serum pregnancy test, Just in case the dr didn’t lie to me? I’m lost, discouraged, and feel crazy.

    • I’m really sorry to hear all of this!! I am 34 yrs old and finally pregnant with my 1st! God has blessed me and I am forever grateful!! I am almost 12 weeks. So I knew I was pregnant long before I took the Clear Blue home test. I had a missed period but also had some bleeding after my LMP which was October 28th. Which come to find out was implantation bleeding. I could feel EVERYTHING going on inside of me.!! I waited until 45 cycle days before I took the home test because my mom swears by it but my HCG levels were pretty high when I took blood test at my PCP office, which indicated I was around 8wks along. About 3-4 weeks later I had my first ultrasound and they tell me I am 8wks and 5 days. So I felt as if I went backwards in my pregnancy. Lol. But I would go to an urgent care or something and have them do a blood test because it doesn’t sound like everyone was on the same page at your doctors…and with you commenting that you feel as if you’re pregnant and then ordering all those scans, tells me they weren’t listening to you, which is the usually the case when it comes to doctors and such. At least in my experience!! Also I would try another at home pregnancy test, maybe your levels weren’t high enough to detect or something but it could have also been a false positive test as well, but they don’t happen often unless there’s something else going on. I would like to hear how things go. And I will be praying for you and your partner!! I pray God gives you both this gift!!

  14. Pray for me. I took a pregnancy test after I was 10 days late on my period. I took 2 and both were positive. I thought I would be around 10 weeks now. They said it looks like 6 weeks and there’s no heart beat yet. I feel super bloated, extreme fatigue, sore breast and a lot of back pain. They gave me 10 more days until another ultrasound. I’m so confused now.

    • My heart goes out to you as I had a similar experience. I was 8 weeks and the baby was measuring 6 weeks with no heartbeat. When I went back in a week later the doctor said it was a missed miscarriage. There was so much confusion as everyone I knew got pregnant then had their baby no problems. I passed the fetal tissue naturally about a week after I learned the news. My husband and I were heart broken.

      I send my prays for you and wish you the best possible outcome.

  15. i really want to get pregnant with twins though i have three children under c section and am 45

    • Same! Did you end up with twins??

  20. As of today in 10 weeks and 4 days. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been feeling like in having twins. I went to the hospital 3 weeks ago they confirmed my pregnancy and told me it was a single child. I went to the OB 4 days ago to find out I am most definitely having twins!! I’m showing already and I usually don’t start to show until 4-5 months. Nausea is INSANE ! Don’t get me started on food aversions…. I’m a small petite woman and usually weight 100lbs or less and I’ve lost about 15lbs due to that. Despite all the downs, I’m super excited for my babies to come (Oct 2022). Congratulations ladies!!

    • Omg same story I’m due October 25 with identical twin girls I’ve lost 10 lbs because of nausea so I’m not showing yet and sometimes I worry about them are they growing but am so excited this will be child 5 & 6 for us

    • I went to the hospital this past Thursday due to spotting Nd I was afraid something was wrong with the growing baby. But they told me I’m 6 weeks Nd due in December 22 2022. And I am showing a lot I had seen two when they did the ultrasound but then didn’t see it 🤔 as I am a twin and my boyfriend has twin sisters hope there a chance hope they tell me at my appointment on Wednesday. But congrats on ur baby’s

      • Was it twins?

        • Pls can scan tell if am carrying twins at 6 weeks

  21. Pregnancy Twins

    • Im 4 weeks an 2 days can i see if there twins im feeling way bigger than usual and stomach is way bigger than usual need answers please

  22. Hi Ladies,

    Please help…today is 6 weeks and 2 days no menstrual…we have been trying for a baby for a long time but no luck…I tested 3 times the pregnancy test came out negative😔 but I started having light spotting today…I have been waking up at night eating so much then I could imagined…I also urinated a lot….I read this article and hoping I’m pregnant with multiples fingers cross or it could be something else…my family has twins gene’s…

    • Just because your eating a lot doesn’t mean your pregnant. Also I didn’t crave things when I first got pregnant it took me about a month in a half to crave food. Some woman crave later in pregnancy.

      • Negative nancy mommas TTC need positive comments and energy the tongue is a powerful tool we embrace our mommy hopefuls with positivity and advice based on our own experiences these type of comments are harmful although in context dont seem wrong but morally wrong i dont promote giving false hope but be encouraging thats what we need in this community

      • I want to know if am having twins,am craving food,I don’t even like any kind of food,and am salivating too much,it’s 4 weeks now,is this twins pregnancy?

    • To me it sounds like your not pregnant. If all the test say your negative your not pregnant. Someone woman don’t spot when there pregnant. Go to the doctors if they say your negative, then your not pregnant. Just because you have gene twins in your family it depends on that as well. Did you have a twin? If not the chances are your not gonna having twins.

      • I strongly believe you’re pregnant. When you spot blood its a sign of pregnancy and sometimes one looses the baby if doesn’t go to the hospital for proper medical care and also a sign of hormonal imbalance. The devil is just trying to play tricks on you but God’s plan always supersedes human imagination.

        • I had quite a bit of implantation bleeding, thankful to know its all ok and babies are healthy… manifesting twins. I’m showing so much already at 6 weeks and have the next ultra sound at 8 weeks. I’ve been soooooooo tired, like college partying tired and I have the lifestyle of a grandma lol, but my boobs hurt super sore. hope any of this help anyone, fingers crossed for twins 🙂 sending loving energy to all you mommas and best wishes to aspiring mommas!!!

        • I Love IT!!! So Motivational 💕💕

        • Hey everyone!!
          I had sex with my hubby 3days to my ovulation and also on my ovulation day, today makes it 1week and 4days…have been feeling hotness in my lower stomach and some movement, am I having twins…am so curious and what’s the solution to this hotness am feeling….Thanks!!!

      • Just because a pregnancy test comes back negative does not mean a woman is not pregnant, there could be other reasons for a negative test such as hormonal imbalances, PCOS, and stealth (cryptic) pregnancies. While our minds can play games with our bodies, a woman CAN be pregnant and have no medical indication.

    • Just because you got a few negative tests, doesn’t mean you aren’t pregnant. You might’ve just tested too early. It takes time for the test to pick up the pregnancy hormones.
      I just had a miscarriage. The pregnancy symptoms faded after 2 weeks. They Went away for a week and then suddenly restarted. Huge appetite came first. Tender breasts and stomach cramps. I called my obgyn and they told me there was no way I was pregnant. Just my impending mensus. But I felt it in my gut. I had to be pregnant! A week later I started taking pregnancy tests. 3 total. All negative. A week after that, I took one more because I couldn’t shake the feeling there was a baby in there. It came back positive and the doctors office confirmed it.

      Im sorry it’s been so hard for you to conceive. I struggled for 11 years myself before having my first baby. My body doesn’t produce progesterone on its own and I have to be on the hormone therapy to not just get pregnant but to sustain the pregnancy through the 1st trimester.

      I hope this helps and my fingers are crossed for you! Hope you are pregnant.

      • Sending positive energy to you your comment was very empathetic and informative it is so hard when you are in this situation of thinking you may be pregnant or experiencing symptoms not knowing is the worst thing ever and the best thing is when you come to these places to get advice and help and we see comments like this it gives us hope and the ability to get through the day I appreciate you and I’m sure all the other hopefuls do

When I didn’t know I was pregnant I noticed I ate all my food without getting full and I usually get full fast and leave half of my food so that was wierd for me. Then I took a test but it was negative I was sad because I was trying Nd never did get pregnant I retested again the following week because I felt just wierd Nd it was positive I took two Incase. But I was spotting this past Thursday Nd went to the ER to see if I was ok as I dont have my app until two weeks from now but everything was fine my baby is tiny I am 6 weeks now

  23. Mum’s please pray for me that God should bless me with twins ?

  24. I am 9 weeks pregnant, but there was no heartbeat seen and I was given 2 weeks for another ultrasound scan. need your prayer

    • Hi Aishatu,

      I pray that your God grants you protection in times of worry; as well as a calm heart and keen mind. I pray that in the times of uncertainty that your Creator has made a way for you & your baby. Your God knows your beginning and end. And your child’s beginning and end. Trust that your God had made provisions for you, that He causes all things great and small. I pray over your beautiful belly carrying the light of the next generation. Please, Father God, bring Aishatu peace and knowledge that all is well. Make sure she feels the truth, she has never left Your arms and her baby will never leave them either.

      Amen. Let it be.

      God’s will is mysterious. He moves in ways we can’t understand. I ask for your prayers as well. I’m 47, never been a Mom. I resolved myself to being childless. And I mourned that loss. Yesterday, I tested positive twice. So, I ask for your prayers as well. I believe my Creator has picked the right time for me but I’m SCARED. Ultimately, I know God’s will is perfect and that whatever comes-He loves me & will carry me when I need it. I’m scared because of my age-the baby’s health, Downs (beautiful babies, hard life). I have high blood pressure and am epileptic. I think I’m 4-5 weeks and I’m beyond exhausted. I’ve never felt this way, bone tired. But, my actions & God’s will chose this for me. I pray for God’s mercy on my body so that I can carry the baby long enough to shelter them & make them healthy. (I keep saying them for some reason). My Mom knows, my fiancé doesn’t yet. So THAT will be interesting. (He’s 34)

      I don’t know you, but I love you. Please have peace knowing you have someone who wants the best for you in your corner, praying.

      • Hello Lora,
        Your comment and prayer is beautiful; please update us on your pregnancy.

        • Lady’s with twins… how soon did yall find out you were pregnant? I literally just found out I was pregnant I tested 9 days after ovulation and got 6 positive tests. 5 days before testing I had major heartburn and nausea & my stomach always feels full. I’ve heard the closer to ovulation you test the likely you are to have twins, I have 3 kids already I don’t really want 2 more but hey what can I do. Can anyone give me any information on how to confirm twins before a solo? I know it’s impossible just looking for symptoms

          • Same here. I got my first positive 11 days past ovulation, but I was definitely having symptoms before that. Did you end up with twins?

        • Hello Lora,
          Greeting you in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ .

          I am 41 age, my husband left me for not giving him a child, I got divorced him after 7 in married after of being in the house for 3 years waiting for him to come back, just to find out that he moved in with the lady ,in October 2023 have sex November I have my period which lasted for 3 days only with brownish not as usually, December I missed my period until today with the most symptoms of pregnancy cravings for the food that I don’t usually like eating, in February I start having sensations in my stomach mostly at the left side , stomach becomes big , gains weight , I did the urine test two times with different doctor it shows negative, and ultrasound sound they can’t detect anything, but as I am writing this I am feeling beating sensations in my abdomen. Please Ms. Lora what I need is your prayers because I have faith and believe that there’s a baby within me and I cannot wait to have her in my arms in JESUS Christ name.

      • Ohh Lora!
        I felt your every word.
        God is sure going to see and carry you through. You didn’t come this far just to come this far. God has a purpose for your existence. And this time, the time that He chose for you, is the best time. You are going to carry that baby full term. You are going to give birth to a healthy bouncing baby. It is well. It is done. It is finished. God has got you, always. He knew and still knows how much you wanted this. The Lord knows your heart. The Lord himself listened to your heart when you couldn’t say it out by your mouth. He loves you so much and He will give you pure joy. You are going to rejoice. You are going to testify. Because He is a good God and He does what only He can do. You are blessed. Big hug to you. I love you.

    • i am 13 and wondering if i could ever have twins ?

      • My gollie girl! You are 13!! This should be the furthest question from your mind right now! And cruising along in a pregnancy blog! Please! Take it from experience, I had my daughter at 16 (pregnant at 15) and although I would trade her for the world and she is the Apple of my eye….. I missed out on A LOT!! Pushed back in school, social activities, extra curricular activities, sports….. Life! Baby girl you are beautiful inside and out! Discover and cherish YOURSELF first! You owe to yourself!

        P.s. no rude remarks… I’m now 36 and pregnant possibly with twins… And saw her comment, and I’m pretty sure all you other moms would agree with me! I know if my daughter wrote this somewhere I would hope one of you would try and talk some sense into her lol

        • Couldn’t have said it better myself! Lovely advise

      • Don’t wish your life away, you will have all that in the future please concentrate on being a teenager and enjoying your childhood whilst you can

      • Can I be pregnancy with a baby and a girl

    • Thinking about you ❤️

    • All is well for you and you baby by God greace

  25. I’m wondering if I got twins in me. When I first read the quiz: I was first thinking “boy” diffrent things: no nausea; lower belly; & salty cravings; but the last couple times I had looked in the mirror; it’s starting to look more: upper; like it’s a girl. I’m thinking “Elsie Renata Keyes” if it’s a girl; “Glenn Lindy Keyes” if it’s a boy; It feels upper & lower. Beth

  26. Hi I need some advice. I’m 40 and have been trying to get pregnant for many years. I’m currently 14 days late on my period, the longest I have ever been late, usually 28 days and like clockwork. I am always feeling nauseous, I have gone off my favourite foods, really sensitive to certain smells, feel like I’m on an emotional roller coaster. Did a test today and it’s negative!!! Help! What is going on??? Why do I have all pregnancy symptoms but test is negative 🙁 any advice or similar experiences are welcomed. Ps I haven’t been under any stress or other medications to be so late

    • I see that you posted this comment a while ago, so you’ve probably got an answer by now. If not, there are a couple reasons you could be having these symptoms and a negative pregnancy test.
      1. You could be pregnant with twins or more, when pregnant with multiples your HCG levels are higher, sometimes too high for a home pregnancy test to detect. Also, your chances of conceiving twins goes up after, I believe doctors say, 35 years old.
      2. A possibility of early menopause. Many menopause symptoms are quite similar to pregnancy symptoms.

      There may be other reasons, but your doctor is the best way to put your mind at ease and get an answer.

  27. I didn’t even miss my period yet, I took at a test and it was positive. Then I went for an ultrasound at 8 weeks because I did with my first child just to see at this place called Baby Moon for a couple pics. Holy Moly I was in for a real surprise only to discover to 2 babies instead of 1. SHOCKING to say the least. Prior to even going for my ultrasound and finding out I was expecting twins, I asked a nurse practitioner this question: if I am pregnant with twins shouldn’t I have my head in the toilet all day and night puking my guts out? She said no not necessarily. So I thought ahh I’m not having twins then. WRONG, I had 0 morning sickness, never felt better I was quite well actually being pregnant with twins. My twins were born at 38 weeks via csection. They were 6 pounds a piece. No NICU time needed, I was and am beyond blessed as they are healthy and happy. They are 3 years old now :o).

    • This interested me, I’m currently 5 weeks pregnant but took a test at 2 weeks afre my last period, I had symptoms so tested, it came up with a faint purple line that I blamwd on being tired and bad lighting, the next week I took a 2nd one and this time the line was darker so I took the older test out of the bin to see and sure enough there was a line too ?? told my doc at my check up on Tuesday (she was confirming my pregnancy) so she sent my urine off to the lab for testing

    • Same case with mine. I’m currently 9 weeks with my forth pregnancy…all was fine no nausea no morning sickness, just delayed period n feeling sleepy more than usual. Done scan last night just to make sure i am pregnant and surprise! Double sac, double heart beat hehehe

      • Congratulations!

      • Congratulations.. I’m so happy for you. I’m currently pregnant and I tap from your testimony. I love twins. God bless!

  28. My third pregnancy turned out to be twins. It is true that every pregnancy is different, but in retrospect, there were some signs early on. One morning, at maybe 4 weeks, I woke up and stretched and had a twinge of round ligament pain, the first sign I knew I was pregnant, although i’d only ever experienced it in late third trimester before. Fatigue is for real too, just immediate and totally overwhelming. I’d lay down for a nap and wake up 5 hours later. Finally, at the very beginning, I was soooo hungry. I’d wake up in the night hungry, or feel starving only a couple hours after lunch. And even though I’d eat when I feel hungry, that first month I was losing weight. An early home pregnancy test revealed immediately that I was pregnant, but that happened with my other two pregnancies too so I didn’t think twice about it until we saw two little bodies in the first ultrasound.

  29. Thank you for sharing this! I’ve fluctuated between really, really wanting twins, and being terrified of the thought of taking care of two newborns at the same time. I can’t make up my mind. But I have always wanted to know as quickly as possible in every pregnancy if it’s one baby or more. These signs will give things to watch for! Thank you!

    • I was terrified too but don’t be! They are so awesome! I never wanted twins & now I can’t imagine not having twins! I’m pregnant t with #6 & wouldn’t mind another set of twins!

      • I’m pregnant with number 5 I’m 35 and have a sting feeling I’m pregnant with twins. My hunger and nausea are so intense lots of lower belly pains I’ve read is round ligament pain I haven never experienced before. I’ve woke through the night hungry and will be too tired to get up then I’ll wake up feeling sick. I’m struggling to eat cause we own a restaurant I work at and the smells make me on the verge of puking all day. I’m struggling to eat at work.

        • Thanks Soo much

      • Am 32,already 10weeks pregnant,am always feeling tired and breathing heavily,whenever am hungry before I could reach for food I will be already famished .pls what is the cause
