Discomfort and Pain in Early Pregnancy?

Dear Midwife,
I'm approximately 11 weeks pregnant, and so far I have had almost every second day horrible morning sickness that prevents me from really eating anything. What should I do?

Also, seeing as how I'm so early along, is it normal for my tummy to go really hard and huge (like I'm 5 or 6 months along) and feel like Braxton Hicks contractions?

Possible Twins At 16wks? Is It Possible?

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I'm 16 weeks pregnant. I have had a few ultrasounds and they have only seen one fetus.

Last week I was told that they could see another sac and a shadow but they weren't sure if it was another fetus. Is that possible even though I've had like 4 ultrasounds before?

I also have placenta previa. Do you think maybe that's what they saw.
