Did you have any inclination that it was twins?

Postby sadiegirl » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:55 am

I'm wondering if any of you thought maybe it could be twins before finding out or sure. I had 4 mature follies when we did IUI and I have been having lots of cramping/pulling on both sides of my uterus but at different times. I'm still very early so we won't have an ultrasound until 7 weeks. Also, does being over wight increase the odds?

I knew it could be twins because I had 2 mature follies at my IUI so I wasn't surprised when we saw the 2 sacs on the u/s.

I don't think your weight has anything to do with more than one egg fertilizing and implaning. I'd say the fact that you had 4 mature follies makes you likely to have twins or possibly triplets or quads.

I don't think being overweight increases the odds. I had a slight feeling.. but, I don't know. I think a lot of newly pregnant moms do. lol
My biggest indication were my beta and progesterone numbers. Did you have those done?

Yes. 14dpo was 192 and 16dpo was 516. Progesterone went from 15 to 21. Nothing too spectacular though. Guess I will just have to wait for ultrasound.

I had a feeling I was pregnant with twins last time. I had lots of cramping before my BFP and started to show around 5 weeks. My betas were also on the high side. We knew there was a 12% chance because we transferred two embryos.

Good luck!

I also transferred two embryos, so I knew there was a chance, but my gut told me from the start that it was twins which was confirmed at our first u/s at 5w5d. I don't know anything about how weight affects all of that though. GL!

I had dreams before I was even pregnant that I'd have twins! LOL! Then when I got a BFP at 8dpo and beat the control at 14dpo I was quite curious if my dreams were going to be right! Of course I told myself "of course not".... but I guess I was right! We found out at our 6 week ultrasound. Oh and we just used clomid 50mg. As for the overweight thing I've read in several different places that it does increase your odds of ovulating more than one egg (has to do with the higher amt of fat changing your hormones a bit). But since you already know you ovulated more than one egg I can't see how your weight would affect anything else. GL and can't wait to hear what your news is!

I always knew I would have twins, from the time I was a young child. I had dreams, one the night before finding out I was pregnant. Before the ultrasound I kept saying "or two" in referring to the baby.

Got my third beta in. 23dpo was 7815. Having a fourth next Thursday before scheduling ultrasound for 7 weeks. I have no idea if that's a high number or not. I just know the doctor was happy with it.

We transferred two embryos, so I knew there was a chance but we had done that in the past and gotten none. This time I just sort of knew. I was super exhausted before I even went in for a blood test and then just had an inkling it was twins. I know it sounds hokey but I saw a double rainbow on my way driving to work one morning (I had never seen one before) and just knew it was a sign.

I knew. I don't know how but I did.

I had a dream the morning after we conceived that we were having twins [although my dream was twin girls]... then I was SUPER bloated and out growing pants early... I read the twin chapter in what to expect "just incase". And lastly the morning of my ultrasound I told my mom, " I get to find out if there's two in there today".

Sometimes you just know.

I only thought it could be because we did IVF and put in three embryos. Our first IVF 6 years ago with my son worked first try, so I was hopeful this time and it worked and TWINS. My 14dpo was 488 and it way more than quadrupled. My progesterone was over 100. It was with my first pregnancy too though. My beta wasn't that high with my first though (singleton).

Betas can't tell you anything though, only the u/s will reveal. :)

I only had 2 betas. 12dpo was 137 and 14dpo was 323. They were nearly identical to a friend of mine IRL that has twins and she was convinced before I was that it was twins.
