If you were pregnant with twins ( identical ) when did you find out? I have only one sack but i'm only 6w4d. My uterus is already above my pubic bone ( which the fr said doesn't normally happen till around 8-9 weeks) . and my HCG lvl is over 63000. I was just wondering when you saw 2 babys. For some reason i can't get out of my head that i've having twins.

I found out at about 7 weeks. Was spotting and thought I was miscarrying. So I went to get an emergency ultrasound and bam. Two very obvious babies with equally strong heartbeats. Same sack but mono/di. (Membrane between them.)

If you've already had a baby, multiple pregnancies, your uterus knows what to do. My uterus kicks into gear ASAP. I always joke that as soon as hcg starts getting produced it starts growing as fast as it can. I've had all single babies and starting with the second one, I measured as far as 10 weeks ahead, with my last baby, at one point it was 12 weeks ahead, and eventually at the end, it slowed down.
Heck, sometimes a woman's uterus doesn't even go back down to the size it was before she ever had kids and can stay somewhat enlarged.
Hcg has a very large range when it comes to how far along someone is or how many babies. My numbers have all been very high with my pregnancies I've had them checked with.... The drs would say I was a few weeks ahead of what I actually was before doing an ultrasound, just based off the numbers.



Everything you are experiencing can be normal for a singleton pregnancy, as well as a possible twin one, but if you had an ultrasound and it showed one, then there is probably only one. Good luck either way.

She's right. My doctor felt my uterus and said it was 19 weeks and ultrasound confirmed my baby was 15 weeks developmentally.
