TWINS?

So I got my BFP last night...and BOY was it dark - no mistake I am PREGGO!
so the more we sat and talked about it we where begining to speculate that maybe its Twins that is why it was so darn dark....

I have no idea how many DPO I tested at - I never Chart or know when I am ovulating...BUT I was 5-6 days late for my period when I took the lest last night.

With my last pregnancy, the line was so faint and i tested like 10 days after my period was due...

Since the HPT measure the amount of pregnancy hormone, could it be possible that i have alot b/c I am pregnant with twins, or further along than I originally thought (as I said I am bad with charting)...

My DH's mother is a twin - my grandfather is a twin....

Could be why i am having ligament pain this early??

Any thought?

Could be. I have wanted twins each pregnancy and always got a really dark line by 13-14 dpo. No twins though. Maybe it will be this time Wink Does your doc do an early u/s?

Yes - my Dr. will most likely due an internal sono to deterimine if it is twins - I will ask for one either way b/c I could be off by a whole month - thinking back i really could have been spotting in Sept and not really had my period it was late, light and lasted only a short time...and DH and I bearly DTD in Oct. So b/c of all the date confusion (same thing happened last pregnancy) I think he will do an internal sono to measure the size.

Congrats on your BFP! I don't know about twins, but being a month off on your dates could certainly be an explanation, too! :goodluck:

Congratulations!

FWIW, I had a super dark line at 12 DPO ... my mother was a twin and I myself am a twin ... had lots of round ligament pain between weeks 4 and 6 ... and I am just having one baby. Smile

However many you have in there, wishing you a HH9m!

The round ligament pain starts earlier with the second.as for the darker line, youcould have implanted earlier. With ds 1, I had a pos hpt only after af was late. With ds 2 the pos hpt was 4dpo. Interestingly, even though they did a 6 week us with ds1 they didn't rule out twins till the 20 week us (they also heard hb echos with him) because my blood hcgs were so high. (and yes, I have a high rate of twins on both my mom and dad's sides of the family, so ,ore surprising I haven't had twins yet.) you may had a darker dye in that test, a. More sensitive test, or an earlier implant.

*Lurker*

I asked this question after I got my BFP. I tested just 3 weeks after my period (I had a m/c so I tried charting as best as possible, but everything was all messed up). I also was having really strong signs I never had with my two kids (real bad morning sickness ALL day, extreme fatigue, real high HCG levels that even all the drs said there was a strong possibility it was twins, etc).

However when I went in for a dating u/s at 10 weeks they said they only saw one (not that they looked very hard and the 2 times they've listened to the heartbeat it was maybe 20 seconds long...gotta love the military ha ha!) so I'm still wondering! I got in for my big u/s the 22nd and I will ask again (every time I ask the drs just laugh and walk away!). I do doubt I am having twins and think I am just paranoid lol.

I have read that with twins, they don't always show sooner with BFPs and that sometimes even the HCG levels are the same as singletons. You never really know until your dr confirms or denies it. Either way congrats on your happy news and new addition to your family!
