how many of you just knew? - Page 2

post #21 of 31
I had no idea. No family history, nothing. It just wasn't on my radar, although I guess it should have been because I was so big so early, and the week before the u/s I had a dream that they found four in there! And the whole week before the u/s, my friends at work kept kidding that it must be twins because I was so big. And I was all like "not funny, guys. Not funny." hmmm.....

I KNEW right away. The first week after I took the test I just felt compelled to look up twin info. We did an early scan and we found "the baby" and I said I was so glad to see a healthy baby and I had the scan to see the baby, get my due date and make sure there was only one in there. The tech asked me why I thought I was having twins and I told her I just had this feeling I couldn't shake. She then found another blob and asked if we could see that, DH asked if it was a foot, I thought it was a leg, she said "no, it's a twin". I freaked out and I believe I started using some rather colorful explicatives LOL. I was 7 weeks 4 days when we saw both fetal poles (mine are MZ).

I just new - as soon as I knew I was pg I started thinking in my head "the babies" instead of "the baby". Sometimes I'd slip in my speech and say that too which would really make my dh nuts. We didn't find out for quite awhile and I battled with accepting that my twins were really just one baby, as my mw was really thinking. It just never felt right. I do remember having dreams about that but I can't remember now what they were about or if it was before or after knowing. Oh, also, years before ever ttc my first child (the twins were #3 & #4) I *knew* I'd have twins. Just knew it. So it really was never a surprise finding out.

Well, I knew deep down, and thought about it at 16 weeks when my fundal height was at my belly button, but then repressed all thought of twins by 20 weeks when my fundal height measured right on (the rest of the pregnancy, even) and I didn't gain any more weight than with my two former pregnancies.

I honestly didn't think about having two, but yet I couldn't accept the fact that I was having either a boy, OR a girl...I couldn't let go of either one of those images, and I had guessed my first two babies correctly (singletons.) And when I felt the limbs (two many legs or arms) I had a slight twinge of wondering, but never anything concrete.

It was my third pregnancy, so I chalked it up to that. Until the midwife felt the lump in my belly after my dd was born, then I KNEW that I had always known, and I felt "validated" in a way...though I was glad we didn't know for the stress it would have caused!

I knew right away. I knew I was having multiples and told my husband. We had a hard time conceiving, but as soon as I was pregnant (naturally) I said to him that there was more than one baby. At our 8 week ultrasound his response was : My response was "only two?" I was convinced I was having triplets. I also knew from early on (guessing) that there were two boys in there - we called them peanut and jellybean until we named them. My husband is a twin and there are twins on both his mother and father's side and there are twins on both my parent's side as well, so we were "doomed" to have twins. It is such a blessing!

I just knew. Had several dreams and just felt it. Husband knew this and just laughed at the sono at 19 weeks. No one else believed me until then.
