How do you know if you are carrying twins?

Although women expecting multiples experience similar symptoms as those carrying a single baby, there are some indications, which you may not miss (1).

i. Blood test results may vary: hCG hormonal levels are higher in your early blood test, indicating you could be carrying more than one baby. However, this is not definitive because sometimes even singleton pregnancies may show a spike in hormonal levels.

ii. Exaggerated pregnancy symptoms: If you are pregnant with twins, you will experience more severe symptoms related to hormonal elevations. You may have more severe nausea and vomiting than those carrying a single baby.

Women carrying twins will have extreme morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum. The condition is so severe that you may require intravenous injections and other medical assistance.

iii. Bigger bump: Though the increased size and weight cannot be a definitive measure of twin pregnancy, most twin mothers have quickly growing bellies earlier in the pregnancy.

How are identical and fraternal twins formed ?

Identical twins are monozygotic twins, and are formed when a single fertilized egg (ovum) splits and develops into two babies. They share the same genetic information and look alike. Fraternal twins are dizygotic twins, and are formed when two separate eggs (ova) are fertilized by two separate sperms. They do not share the same genes nor look alike.

What are my chances of having fraternal or identical twins ?

You will have increased chances of fraternal twins if you yourself have a twin or if you have siblings who are twins. Your chances increase with your increasing age and body mass index, number of children, and your height.

Identical twins are random irrespective of heredity, maternal age, number of births, etc. The chances of conceiving identical twins will be around one in every 285 pregnancies (2). One in three sets of twins is identical (3).
