OK...... I had my first child 18 years ago. I had my 2nd child 15 years ago. Remarried and now am 8 weeks pregnant. Today was my first obgyn visit. I explained to the doc that I could not fit into my normal pants and I was a bit frustrated. After feeling my tummy, The doctor said my uterus is much larger than normal. I already had an ultra sound 2 weeks ago and they only saw one embryo in there. She set another ultrasound date because she wanted to double check to see if there was only one baby in there.

Tell me if you know, because I'm in limbo right now!.... lol... Is it highly possible I could be pregnant with twins? Or am I over reacting??

Welcome to Mothering dimyns! Congratulations on your pregnancy! It doesn't seem likely to me that there is another baby in there. If there were, I can't imagine it would be taking up that much space at 8 weeks. But I'm not a doctor. It seems like with subsequent pregnancies many women start showing earlier and their tummies feel bigger faster. When is your next ultrasound?

There is always a chance it is twins, but it didn't turn out that way for me.  I was measuring 6 weeks ahead for a long time and it turned out to be one when I finally broke down and had an ultrasound at 14 weeks just to be sure.  So, you can definitely measure ahead.  I have three boys already so I got bigger much faster this time.  Same thing happened to another mom in my due date club.  She just has one baby in there as well.  Good luck to you!
