    Default Twins...

    Identical twins happen when an egg splits, nothing to do with the male, just a coincidence. Monochorionic/diamniotic twins are identical twins that share a placenta, but have different amniotic sacs.

    Thanks Rainbow. Hurry up and join me in pregnancy thread! I think its your month

    I too had bfp at 7 dpo ! Really dark, getting darker and very bloated. Not even due for af still! Hcg level puts me at 4 weeks. Dr said its strange, hcg levels don't match up with dates. Another hcg test tomorrow so will see how high it is at 10dpo. Mil told me my DP grandparents are twins. He didn't even know. It hasnt come out in last 2 generations so everyone thinks I'm the one. I don't know whether to be excited or scared. My poor lg would go from being only child at home to one of three!
    Are you IVF or natural?

    If natural you can get them to check your progesterone level as this can tell you how many placentas.

    I got my BFP at 8dpo and by the time my period was due the line was darker than the control line. At 10dpo my HCG was 26 and two days later at 12dpo it was 126, so a nearly 5 fold increase in two days, when most people have a double in 2 days.

    I know HGC is not conclusive evidence of twins but I'm also sicker earlier than my last pregnancies and just feel different.

    I'm the same as you, I'll be thrilled with one healthy baby but two would be amazing .
    Oh wow. We are so similar. I got my bfp at 7 dpo, hcg at 8 dpo was 49 and 3 days later at 11dpo its 334. I'm still not due for AF til Thursday!
    I'll get a scan in 3 weeks I've decided. Want to make sure I see a heart beat .
    Good luck !

    I know this as I have mono/di twins...
    I don't think it is hereditary but in my ex's family it's definitely a pattern.

    I found out I had twins around 7 weeks. Shock of a life time.

    This was back in 2008.

    The symptoms were terrible. I was in QLD at the time for a holiday. For 2 weeks I couldn't stop stuffing my face. I didn't understand what the hell was going on, I was so bloated and just so ravenous. I ate around the clock. I even stuffed packets of potato chips in my pillow case. It was madness, I thought it was just really bad pms (which I have never gotten in my life) and the whole time was thinking "any day now I'll get my period..."
