Not exactly the voice of experience, but I have wondered about twins since I found my uterus more than an inch above my pubic bone at 8 weeks! My OB just does bloodwork before the 12 week mark, unless you are having trouble (bleeding, ect.). At my 12 week appt. he was called to a delivery, but I insisted a nurse check for a hb b/c and told her I suspected twins. At this point my uterus is about an inch or so below my belly button! One HB was found immediately about an inch below my belly button, so the nurse went ahead and scheduled me for an US, and sure enough... TWINS! I don't think at this point it will hurt to get an US, but I really didn't feel the need to early in PG. I still have 3 months before I get to huge to do anything (hopefully!) so I feel like this was a good time to find out. BTW, they do think they saw 2 placentas, but were not sure, there were definately 2 sacks and I am sure I O'd twice so we are thinking it's probably fraternal twins. I'd say hold off another month or so and see where your uterus is, I could totaly tell this PG was differnt from my other 2 by 8 weeks. Good Luck!
