    I've got one this weekend:
    If you were to be pregnant with twins, that doesn't mean your symptoms would be worse...correct?
  • Options
    @osucma others can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think your symptoms necessarily *have* to be worse if you have twins.

    @osucma I think it's a solid probably, because your hcg levels would be even higher for two but someone can correct me. I'm sure I'm wrong.

    Yes technically there is more HCG so you would possibly have worse symptoms however each pregnancy is different and this is your first so you would have nothing to compare to. So say you were pregnant with twins you would have no idea if this was worse than a singleton because you have no comparison and people have also reported no difference in symptoms. It really depends on your body. 

    I had ovulation pain on both sides this cycle which never happens I usually have very distinct one sided pain and I have been unable to stop thinking about twins so I have been googling too much about it

    Hmmm, well I have heard the twins usually means more symptoms but that could be totally antecdotal considering symptoms vary from one woman and one pregnancy to the next pretty dramatically.

    @CAdreamin13 the best course is to talk to your doctor if you're concerned. It's fairly unlikely but still, one of the great things about pregnancy is being able to call a nurse line and ask about anything. My nurses were shocked I didn't call in weekly or monthly questions, so never be afraid to reach out. They'll be the best at knowing if you're having any sort offs situation that needs addressed

    @dancegurl1118 do you have an answer to op?

    Thanks for those who gave input. I am entirely too lazy to tag. >.<

    @osucma my very close girlfriend had twins a year ago and her symptoms were way worse than her single pregnancy. 
  • Options
    My friend had twins and then a singleton.  With her twins she had terrible morning sickness non stop from 6-12 weeks and felt great the rest of the time.  With her singleton she was sick pretty much from the moment she conceived until she delivered.  She said the severity was probably a little worse with the twins but not much and it didn't last as long.

    @WorkinWeezel SPD = symphysis pubis dysfunction, when the ligaments that usually stabilize your pelvic joint relax, making the pelvic joint unstable and causing pain or discomfort. These ligaments are supposed to relax before you give birth, but sometimes they relax too early during pregnancy and cause pain.

    @CAdreamin13 I believe SPD is usually diagnosed if it becomes chronic or really unbearable. Like @theglitteredpterodactyl said, I'm sure your doc can tell you more. In my first pregnancy, I had severe, shooting pain in my pubic area a couple times (1st tri). Not like cramps, this was sharp, up-and-down pain right by my pubic bone. It improved when I rested. Now I think it was normal pregnancy pelvic girdle pain that happened to be severe a couple times. But it can be scary - if you have pain, call and let your MD or midwife reassure you!

    Eek!  That wounds awful.  I do have pains but it's more like cramping and pulling- not unusual.  But it's amazing how much you forget when you think you're done having kids and a 3rd one surprises you!!!

    When do you usually have your 1st ultrasound? I called my doctor's office today and I have an appointment with the OB's nurse on 11/22 to go over what to expect with the pregnancy and I am seeing my doctor for a prenatal appointment on 12/2. The receptionist said there more than likely would not be an ultrasound.

    Many doctors only do one ultrasound at 20 weeks. But there is a wide range of normal in that area. It just depends on your doctor.

    If this was my doctor, I would be finding a new one!

    @SaphireSweetie88 my doctor is doing one on the 15th, but only because I bfp on cycle day 60 and I didn't have a cycle between now and my loss. So it's to see how far I actually am.

    Sometimes your symptoms can be worse with twins. But that's not always a given, as HCG in each pregnancy effects people differently. Just hold out for that first scan and see what happens :)

    also this is a PSA on the flipside: just because you don't have any symptoms or don't "feel" pregnant doesn't mean something is wrong or you're not!

    Oh! Also @saphiresweetie88 depending on where you live you can always pay for a private scan if you would like to. :)

    I have one.. how would I know the difference between SPD and just regular (or concerning??) pelvic floor ache? 
    I had SPD with my twins and it was awful.  It started late first tri.  At first there was just some soreness getting up off the floor or making big movements.  Gradually it got worse and worse and by the end I couldn't spread my thighs at all.  DH had to help me into bed. I would lean on the edge of the mattress and he would pick up my feet and swivel me.  And if I rolled over in my sleep I woke crying from the pain of moving my legs.

    Thanks Ladies, I am thinking I am going to message the doctor's office and ask them when they plan on doing it in case the receptionist was misinformed. I appreciate all the responses.
