My midwife heard two heartbeats yesterday at 13 wks. I had this really strong feeling that I was pregnant with twins. Before I had conceived I had prayed for twins, (why, I wonder?) I told her and she laughed and said be careful what you pray for.
Anyway, before she started to listen for a heartbeat w/the doppler I was telling her that my mom has been saying to me, I wonder if it's twins? And she said, Suzy that's just what I'm thinking. I measure 20 weeks already and have gained 16 lbs. I've always measured a few weeks ahead of what I am, but 7 wks? Then she heard a heartbeat way down low and another up high on the other side. She couldn't tell me for sure right then so we'll have to wait. I can't get in for an ultrasound until April 7th. But, I have this gut feeling there's two. We practice NFP so I'm absolutely certain on my conception date.
Anyone else have this experience?
Right now I'm very anxious. I've been feeling fine (but tired). I have a history of big babies, gestational diabetes and I don't like intervention. :-)
I'm 41 and have 6 kids--3 boys 15,14,13 and 3 girls 9,6,2 (all July bdays). We homeschool (unschool mostly), AP, family bed, the works.
Thanks for listening.
Suzy, mom of eight, great kids! : four boys 23,22,21,8 & four girls 18,15,11,5
