QUESTION

Hello!
I am 11 weeks pregnant and had my first doctor appointment this morning. Upon feeling the size of my uterus, my doctor asked me if I was sure about the date of my last menstrual period because my uterus is roughly 2 weeks bigger than it should be.

I told her that I was absolutely positive. I could actually tell you the day I conceived because I woke up the following morning and did an ovulation test which said I was ovulating. I asked her what this could mean and she said that it could be the fact that this is my fourth pregnancy (I have had 2 healthy babies and 1 miscarriage that happened in February of 2010) so things are "stretched out" a bit or it could be twins! I have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow to confirm.

My question is, in your experience, does it sound like this is more than one baby?

ANSWER

Hopefully by now you know!

If you are 11 weeks with twins, often you will feel like you have more morning sickness than with your other pregnancies, but other than that, an ultrasound is your best bet for sure!

Good luck!
