Could it be twins?

I'll start by saying that I know how silly I sound, but sometimes you just can't shake the feeling.

I had a mc in January at 6w3d.  From the day I found out I was pregnant, I had a bad feeling about it - there were no obvious signs to lead me to the bad feeling, I just knew something wasn't right.  I say this because I just found out that I'm pregnant again (yay!) and from the moment I found out, I thought it was twins.  Twins don't run in either side of the family and I wasn't using fertility treatments, so it seems unlikely.  Here are a few symptoms/facts - can someone who has had twins let me know if they've had a similar experience?
  • Brown spotting for about 5 days, beginning at 4w2d (I did not have this with my 1st child, now 15 mo) - I've heard this can be frequent with twins because of the dual implantations
  • I'm currently 5w0d and already fighting back vomit 
  • Dreams about twins
  • HCG at 13dpo was 29 and then at 17dpo was at 294 (should have been around 120)
I have a sonogram in two weeks, but I can't stop thinking about it and thought perhaps someone here could share some insight.

Thank you!!

    No 2 pregnancies are the same, so even if someone here experienced the same exact symptoms as you, it means nothing in relationship to your current pregnancy. 

    Spotting can be caused by a lot of difference things. I had severe bleeding twice during my twin pregnancy due to schs.

    And as for the vomiting, I got sick only twice throughout my whole pregnancy. 

    The only way to know if it's twins is by an ultrasound. H&h 9 months to you.

  • An ultrasound is the only indicator of multiples. No feelings, dreams or symptoms indicate a multiple pregnancy. I had zero morning sickness, no dreams and average to somewhat rapidly doubling HCG with my twins. I was completely shocked at my ultrasound.

  • I second the other ladies... I had spotting with both a singleton and twin pregnancy, I had nausea but no vomiting with either. My HCG numbers were way higher than yours for both my singleton and twin pregnancies.
