Found out I was pregnant at 5w1d (though I had a strong hint of it before that) while on birth control. I'm 30 and kind of petite (5'3", 115 pounds pre-pregnancy).
Found out Monday at U/S that I'm having twins. I'm still really freaked out by it--mostly because of my size... worried that I'm not going to be able to handle the physical strain and demand as I get further along. I started to have really strong heart palpitations a week ago and now my OB is wanting to send me to a cardiologist. The twins' heartbeats are 116 and 120 at 7w2d, which sounds lower than what I've heard from other people around the same time. I haven't really gained any weight yet from the pregnancy... I thought that was fairly normal for a singleton in first trimester, but I'm kind of surprised that I haven't even gained a pound yet with twins.
Is carrying twins when you're small really do-able? Is there anyone here that's petite that's done it and survived and managed to stay healthy during and after?
