ho many of you just simply knew before any scans or dopplers etc,did you just know?
I knew because:
* I had a dream..yes,just the one
* I felt it deep down
* my son kept telling me
* I felt movement at 7 weeks..yes realy
* when people asked about the baby it felt wrongi had to tell them i suspected babies..and they instantly believed me!
this is my 4th pregnancy,I am so exited.yes,a tad nervous but more exited :::
Missionary, birth-worker, midwifery student
Mama to DD (9yr), DS (3yr), & UC twin DDs (5yr)
Kimberly, mom & wife - about pregnancy and birth
DD 2004; 3 babies 2007-08; twin DDs 2009; DD 7/12/11 hospital VBAC after 2 cesareans!
In retrospect, there were a few weird things that made sense. But before we knew it was twins, it was easy to explain them away as partly being due to enormous stress I was under at work, and partly due to "every pregnancy is different".
I really thought #3 was twins. But nope - just an 11 lb 1 oz baby (I think he was draining resources early on!)
Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".
all i could read about was twins,and even before i knew when people asked i couldnt say there was one baby..i ised to tell people and think what if im ...but i knew i wasnt wrong .

even stranger though is that when my husband and i first started dating (8ish yrs ago?) a friend of mine who professes to be a bit psychic predicted that we'd have twins together eventually...
-3 dreams 3 nights in a row
-buying one boy thing and one girl thing at garage sales
-asked the dr. very early to see if she could find 2 heartbeats (she shhshed me )
-felt movement early
-always called them "they" not "he/she"
-grew out of my regular clothes by 2 months
When the midwife mentioned the possibility, and recommended that we change our plan and get an u/s after all, I wasn't really all that surprised.
Then on Nov 8th, had an ultrasound, YEP twins! I said to my husband, See I told you! I told you! I knew it! I knew it. My doctor laughed and looked at us. My husband was just standing there looking at the ultrasound machine and was really surprised. He said, you were right.
Then I announced to all of my friends and every single of them said, wow you were right!
|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 arent having any scans ,so I wont find out for sure ntil later but I already know if you know what I mean?::::::::t wins:
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!
