    Unhappy Twin pregnancy..how early did you start feeling uncomfortable?

    I'm 21 weeks pregnant with twins. First pregnancy, nobody I know has been pregnant with multiples. I'm struggling with major pain in my upper right tummy and it goes around into my back. It's been going on for a few weeks now, last time i saw my OB she put me on zoloft (which i stopped after horrid side effects). I'm frustrated because I feel like I should be loving my pregnancy but i hate it so far! i only feel okay if i lie down for awhile and the worst of the pain subsides. i sit up at my desk or even my recliner and the pain comes back. it's worse after meals so today i haven't even wanted to eat much. they took blood to check for gall bladder problems and those came back negative today. i was able to talk them into an ultrasound next week to look for gall stones but now i'm starting to feel like i'm just being a whiner and this is all part of pregnancy with twins and i need to just suck it up. i'm hoping there are people here who can tell me what a multiple pregnancy feels like and if it's really a lot of pain from beginning to end?

    I'll be honest with you...multiple pregnancies suck. I have a 4 yr old daughter and my pregnancy with her was amazing. The twins, I was begging for the nines months to be over. Unfortunately, everything is doubled. Now the pain you have I didn't really have. I was uncomfortable, not really in pain. I hope it's just apart of your pregnancy and not something more.

    Thank you for replying, i have been feeling like the biggest whiner...it's good to hear you say that twin pregnancies suck so i know it's not just me being a whiner, it really is harder than a singleton.

    Oh God, the entire pregnancy sucked. I was hormonal crying non-stop from before I found out to about 6 weeks, then barfing non-stop from 6 weeks to about 13 weeks, then I'm sure something awful was going on for a while, at 16 weeks I started getting contractions and had to stop exercising, then a blur into the 20s and I was on here complaining non-stop, at 24 weeks the school year started up again and I was contracting so hard and struggling through the day and still throwing up, at 26 weeks I was put on home rest, 30+ weeks were uh ... perhaps we shouldn't scare you off yet about that part. But the babies are cute!

    Oh and could the pain be contractions?

    haha. I don't think you could possibly scare me right now. i'm already a HUGE emotional mess. The problem is, none of my friends who have had babies understand what is happening. i tell them i'm buying maternity clothes at 12 weeks and they think i'm silly. i tell them that i have rib pain at 17 weeks and they think it couldn't possibly be hurting me yet. it's just so hard to relate to my friends and i feel like i'm going crazy. i'm sooo glad to have found this forum. i already feel a TON better.

    Mine was fairly uncomfortable most of the time, and really terrible from about 30wks on. But as Sheila said, babies are cute. lol

    Mine was relatively awesome until about 28-30 weeks. Seriously, I had no problems until the last 2 months (Christmas to late February). Then it was just purely uncomfortable b\c I was peeing every 30 seconds and my lower back hurt. With that being said, however, I never LOVED being pregnant. In fact, I'm probably one of the few that said I absolutely don't miss being pregnant or feeling them move ALLLLLLLL the freaking time. I like them much better on the outside.

    I would suggest you get checked again for gallbladder? Those were my gallbladder symptoms - pain in the RUQ and wrapping around to my back. And I never showed up on bloodwork or U/S. They finally took it out to have me shut up and that's when they noticed the adhesions and the breakdown. So fight on about the gallbladder.
