    Default Morning sickness affected by number of babies?

    this may seem like a silly question...

    if with a single birth pregnancy morning sickness started at 8 weeks, with twins could this be expected to start earlier? Personally i think that double the babies means double the hormones means sickness at maybe 4 weeks.

    any thoughts?

    I am pretty sure that yes it would be because the hcg levels would be a lot higher.

    Not surprising if that were the case. The HCG sky rockets for twins rather than gradually increasing with a single pregnancy.

    Not necessarily. The hcg levels for twins can also be within the normal range for a singleton pregnancy.

    Definitely possible, though all pregnancies are different and I've known mothers who didn't know there were twins until the ultrasound because things were no different to a singleton pregnancy. I've had worse sickness with some of my pregnancies than others too. No twins to compare though

    yep and I have a few online friends who had very high hcg and assumed it was twins when it was only one baby. An ultrasound is really the only way to know.

    I had super high levels this time and I'm just having one! So it depends.

    Ive only ever had singletons so wouldnt know what its like with a multi pregnancy but my ms got worse each pregnancy and started earlier each time- dd3 was by the worst with severe ms starting at 3 weeks and I wasnt able to move out of bed for the next 4 months. Couldn't even keep water down most of the time. I actually felt ill from about 2 days after we conceived her (but obviously didn't know I was pregnant at that stage).

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)
    Embrace the chaos

    Some people don't get morning sickness at all and many people who suffer hyperemesis are only carrying one baby. So I don't think it's a reliable theory.
