I got my BFP on the 29th but have been experiencing RPL pain off and on Since around the 26th of March. As well as nausea off/on since 23rd of March prompted me to purchase a test.

I feel incredibly bloated and I've gained 2 lbs (probably just water retention) in the past week and my pants feel snug. With the nausea I've not exactly been eating a lot so I figured I wouldn't be gaining weight just yet. Its probably all nothing but in my head.

I do have a family history of Frat. twins on my mom's side going back at least 5 generations.


And I know a U/S is the only REAL way I'm gonna know for 100% :lol: And that's not scheduled for another month.

What if any, were significant symptoms that you were expecting more than one?

I was in maternity pants by 10 weeks and not pregnant I was super skinny. I had a high beta that my RE said for sure meant twins (I know a high beta can also mean nothing so I didn't believe him). Super duper crazy exhausted. But I found out at 5w2d that it was twins and pretty much knew beforehand anyway since we'd transferred two embryos so there were no signs that early!

Congrats on your pregnancy!

I was cramping earlier than normal and that prompted me to test. I got my first bfp at 9dpo. I also knew twins were a strong possibility since I had 2 mature follies at trigger for my IUI cycle. My betas weren't crazy high but my progesterone levels were. I did start getting sick earlier than average, but that was around 5.5 weeks. I found out at 6w4d that I was having twins. I'm also fairly thin while not pregnant and I was in maternity pants by 8 weeks. I did have a lot of RLP in the beginning but most of it started after I found out I had twins.

Thank all you ladies. I think every woman wonders when she's pregnant if it could be two or more.
