Advice please mamas???

Postby Cookie911 » Fri Mar 01, 2013 9:23 am

Hey multiples mamas!!! I am not in your wild club but am just now findin out that I'm prego! I just had a question for you...were your pee sticks super dark very early? Many people have said they are calling "twins" for me and I'm nervous! Here are my 9dpo, 10dpo and 11dpo tests. I was temping and using opk so I'm fairly sure of wheni ovulated. Any advice would be awesome! Thanks!!

Mine were dark really fast, a bit darker than yours. It's really hard to say just by pee sticks. When do you get your first ultrasound? kup when you know more!

actually mine weren't any darker any faster than with my singleton pg. My beta numbers, however, were much higher, along with my progesterone compared with my singleton pg.

Even then, you wont know anything until u/s! GL!

Thanks! I go for dr appt on Friday. I'm not sure if they'll do a transvaginal u/a or not! We will see since ill only be 5 weeks then. I'm feeling pregnant which is odd so early but it is my third baby so maybe that's the deal!
Thanks for your advice!!

We found out at 5 weeks, 2 days I was carrying twins so hopefully you get an answer. Mine are fraternal though so might be too early if you have identicals in there. That you wouldn't know for several more weeks yet. KUP!

depends on when they split. Identaicals can split at 3 days and be completely separate ;)

I personally had much darker hpt's with my twins than with my singletons. Here are my sticks for comparison for you:

8dpo- 11dpo

9dpo, positive digital

Beat the control at 14dpo

Good luck and can't wait to hear your update!

Mine look just like that hazel! My 9dpo may even be a little but darker! But prob not much, I also got a digi bfp that day. I'm anxious to find out! With both of my other children I got no bfp at all until after AF was due! And even then, faint. I go to the doctor on Friday morning!

Oh true! My brain is fried. I was just thinking of my first set who were mono/di and we didn't find out there were two until 8w5d.

I think it just depends on positioning. I had a 4w5d U/s that only showed one; we found out it was twins at 9w3d and as we know I have b/g twins ;) They were one in front of the other

But my original inclination was right!
