You’re tall. Twins are more common in large and tall women than in small women (in an often-cited study, women who gave birth to twins were on average more than an inch taller than the average female, or 5 feet 5 inches vs. 5 feet 3 ¾ inches). Experts say it’s likely again because taller women have higher levels of IGF.

Today, with the availability of early ultrasounds, the presence of twins or multiple fetuses can be detected during the first trimester. A follow-up ultrasound may reveal the “disappearance” of a twin. For example, a woman may have an ultrasound at 6 or 7 weeks gestation.

  • Just found out I’m expecting twins. This is my first pregnancy so I really have no idea what to expect, so thank you for this video.

  • My pregnancy test showed up immediately as well, I am currently 6 weeks but I have a feeling I am carrying twins, my breasts hurt so bad that I also wear my sports bra to bed, I am cramping (like my period is about to come on), I am always hungry, and weeing all the time and super thirsty. I have a scan coming up at 7 weeks (this Friday) to see if everything is OK as I do have cramping and did have some bleeding. We will see!

  • I’m 17 & am a twin myself. I also found out I’m pregnant a month ago and now I’m 8weeks+4. I had a dream the other night that a sonogram tech was giving me an ultrasound and i looked at it, and was like “Omg is that two?!” And the lady was like “Um yeah? You didn’t know”��I have my first appointment tomorrow and I’m so excited!

  • I watched the birth vlog and thought back to this video. This is how I found your channel. I can’t wait to figure out your baby boys’ names!

  • My mom is a twin. (Well her twin died during childbirth.. my mom survived)

    My older cousin has twins.

    And my younger cousin just had twins.

    Praying when it’s my time to be a mother I don’t have twins ����!

  • Just found out I’m preg. My implantation lasted way too long. My sister once had a dream and in the dream I had quadruplets… Jesus��… But I hope I’m having twins. ��

  • This was the most informative, realistic video so far! You’re hilarious btw! My wife and I want kids so badly…. however, she’s 40 & I have advanced stage endometriosis. A month ago I underwent a very extensive surgery in which they removed a large mass in my right ovary, my appendix, & all of the endometrial cyst/tissue. Pretty much every surface of my female organs was covered in cyst & scar tissue. I now have a 1yr 1.5yr window to get pregnant. My doctor will be performing an IUI procedure because I have an inflated risk for a Tubal pregnancy. having an IUI procedure increases your chances for having twins. We’re both ok with that… but I don’t want to kid myself by thinking it will be a cake walk. I’m trying to get as much advice, education on it as possible!

  • I only had a singleton but your breastfeeding advice is incredibly important! I went through my “I cant breastfeed the way I planned”-emotions last week and the moment I accepted it the way it was I felt so much more calm and relaxed. New moms put so much pressure on themselves and want to be perfect in every way without realising how much the pressure they create themselves affects them emotionally. I absolutely love your videos thanks for being real, honest and awesome:D

  • I started following you a while back after I had my second miscarriage. We got pregnant at the same time and our boys were born just weeks a part. I just had my twins 3 months ago, a boy and a girl!

  • I love that you brought up the doctor/birth aspect. That is seriously my biggest fear is being convinced into a birth that I don’t want. I have yet to conceive twins but the more I have the more the possibility and I’m a crazy person that always thought it would be cool to have twins lol

  • 10 Weeks tomorrow with di/di twins! First pregnancy, super excited and nervous but in for the long haul!

    Thank you for sharing with so much experience and grace!

  • My first video of hers I watched was her twin birth video and I am so glad I’m here �� my pregnancy and birth of my son was….dare I say “easy” compared to a lot of other women. It was all natural and I’ve always wanted twins. This vid is great advice for someone like me. Thanks Angie ��✌ love you and the twinsies!

  • Can I just say, I am so thankful you are not on here telling women they can have a home birth with twins. I cannot imagine how horrible your HG was with twins. I had HG with both my pregnancies and I thought I was going to die!

  • Great video. Good advise. My boys will be 10! in January….aaaah! I know right, nothing can make the time go back…o, how I wish for that.

  • Excellent advice. My pregnancies have been very different from yours. I’ve been told they’re like singleton pregnancies, but I’ve never had a singleton so I can’t say.

    Of the three twin pregnancies, I agreed to one c-section (set 2) because both babies were transverse. For the third set I pushed for a VBAC and found a provider and hospital who supported that. It’s very important to make sure you and your provider are on the same page and that you trust him/her.

  • Idk how many baby’s I have in my belly but I keep dreaming I’m pregnant whit twins I wake up looking for them can it be that I’m pregnant whit twin I have severe nausea

  • I wish I had known how annoying people were going to be at the store. Random people are always trying to reach for them. I’m thinking of purchasing a spray bottle to ward off people.

  • Thanks for the video �� 1 day for my periods and i’m feeling pregnant and tbh i have these symptoms xD i hope to be pregnant with twins❤

  • That’s how I was when I found out I was having twins. No family history (twins were fraternal) I was in shock. Born 37+5, Both were 6 pounds, no NICU care, no breathing assistance. Perfectly healthy. One was even born with a tooth lol. That was 3 years ago and I can’t imagine my life without them.

  • Congratulations!! Hey im new to youtube just asking for support can u please go watch my videos and subscribe to my channel i would greatly appreciate it!

  • My sister and I are both pregnant with twins, and we both got bad nausea the next day after conception. �� We also outgrew our jeans early at 8-10 weeks.

  • I tested positive at 3 weeks, same as you it came back positive instantly, super dark line. The next day I started vomiting. I went in for cramping at 5 weeks and they tested my hcg levels. They were at 24,000 (four times higher than the high range for 5 weeks, it’s normal for 6 weeks) retested two days later and was at 37,000while it’s a lot at least it was increasing the way it should. I got an ultrasound at what I thought was 5 weeks, but dating at 5 weeks 3 days, I had a gestational sac and yolk sac, and what they presumed to be a fetal pole (embryo.) flash forward, i should now be 7 weeks and 2 days. I have an ultrasound tomorrow and I’m so nervous. High hcg can indicate twins, but can also indicate complete or partial molar pregnancy. Please pray for my family ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • I have all of the symptoms of a twin pregnancy but I’m not having twins but all of my symptoms match up to hers. I thought I was having twins, others have said it but they haven’t seen a second baby and I’m already 26 weeks. So with that being said, it makes me wonder if I’m carrying twins and one is hidden or if my body is insane and just extremely sensitive. I knew I was having a boy, the moment I found out I was pregnant and I even felt like it could be a twin.

  • I’ve been having fever and all this weird other thing’s going on with my body…I had a dream that I had twins/triplets, but based on my culture (Africa) they say it’s bad luck type of thing that you got a husband in the spiritual life so idk…took some test last two weeks and it said negative and today I realized that I took it too early and my sis said to wait a bit more. But honestly, my body is hot, got fever, feeling cold at times and cramps both womb and feet: like name it..it’s weird. Super tired and mostly always sleepy. Oh and do feel heart/hearts beat when relaxing (laying down). And sometimes it’s like I’m seeing things lol..there’s just way too many signs and stuffs going on.

    Are my pregnant? And is it bad to still have ur pass due IUD while pregnant??

  • I keep getting told that I’m crazy but I believe I’m pregnant with twins. I got a postive on a clearblue digital at just 9dpo. I had a ton of symptoms before my missed period. Extreme exhaustion and needing naps started at just 10dpo. I am also a fraternal twin, with it running on my mothers side ��

  • I would gladly recommend Dr. Isi to any one going through marriage/relationship problems and want to put an end to it email Dr. Isi through his website on http://ancientspiritualtemple.com or WhatsApp via: +254795696876 and that was were i got the help to restore my marriage/relationship

  • my reaction for unexpected( first pregnancy without any problems with having babies) twins was… very loud. My husband thought that something is very wrong because he heard me swearing when he was waiting behind the doors.

  • Thank you so much for doing this video!!! I am 17 and 11 weeks pregnant with twins. They are my first and my husband and I are excited. This video was really helpful

  • I had an early with my first no twins tho I was 4 days early but I’m nervous now because I’m not far and I found out early again sooo hungry then my belly is bigger
