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.

Morning sickness affected by number of babies?

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

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)

my first pregnancy was twins and also the only pregnancy I got morning sickness with :-0 my sister also had twins and had terrible morning sickness
Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3

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.
