Signs You Are Carrying Twins

Being pregnant and then giving births nothing short of a miracle, now being the one, blessed with the responsibility of carrying such miracle, is just amazing. Being pregnant for many is a thing of immense joy and most women even go ahead to pray for not one but two kids at a go and a soon as they become pregnant to need to find out f truly they are pregnant with twins begin.

Just before you go for an ultrasound that reveals if you are having kids, there are a few signs and symptoms that helps you determine if you really are going to have twins.

Implantation bleeding

Implantation bleeding occurs more for women who are carrying twins. This sort of bleeding is usually light, pinkish in color and occurs during the time when the fertilized eggs implants or attaches itself to the uterine lining. In a normal pregnancy [single baby], this bleeding is very slight, but if you happen to be pregnant with twins, you will have more implantation bleeding. However, women carrying twins have been warned to visit their doctors should they  see any bleeding at all while pregnant, as the doctor needs to rule out any dangers whatsoever.

Morning sickness

Most women have the morning sickness during their pregnancy and its even severe when you are pregnant with twins or multiples. Morning sickness is basically vomiting and the nauseous feeling that you experience through the first trimester of your pregnancy. However, you should not be deceived by the name as it can happen at any time of the day.It can occur in the evenings or at nights too. It got the named morning sickness because most incidences occur in the morning. So if you experience nausea in the evening, know that it is morning sickness only. This subsides  as you come close to the end of your first trimester and enter your second. Morning sickness also causes for you t crave some food while others repulses you. This is completely normal. If you are pregnant with twins or multiples, you should know that this feelings will be much stronger. However, if the morning sickness is unbearable, ensure you see your doctor because too much vomiting can leave you dangerously dehydrated, which is harmful for your unborn baby.

Weight gain

his is very common during pregnancy and if you are having twins, you can be sure that you will without much stress gain at least ten pounds in your first trimester itself. This is due to the increase in the size of the uterus and the volume of blood in your body. Weight gain will also occur earlier in your pregnancy, should you be pregnant with twins.



With two babies comes even more tiredness. Bearing twins means you will be tired more than a mum carrying just one baby.  Most times throughout the day, you will be tired and taking a nap during the afternoons will become necessary for you.

It is safe  to say with twins comes double of everything.
