Symptoms Of Multiple Pregnancy
If you think that you are pregnant and you have missed you periods then you should check it first with home pregnancy test. But it is not necessary that the result will be positive as soon as your periods are missing. It takes some time say about three to four days to give you a positive result in case you are pregnant. But you will just come to know that you are pregnant and there will be no indication whether you are carrying single baby or you have multiple pregnancy. Once you know that you are pregnant then you can go for blood check up, which will give you proper results about your pregnancy.
There are certain symptoms of multiple pregnancy that will help you to know in advance whether you will have multiple pregnancy or not. These symptoms are same as that of normal pregnancy but still you can easily find some difference in these two. The main symptoms that indicate about multiple pregnancies are mentioned below.
- Rapid Weight Gain – The pregnant woman who carry twins or multiples usually gain weight rapidly and within few weeks of their pregnancy they appear highly pregnant. This is one of the very prominent symptoms of multiple pregnancy. But it also depends on the weight of that lady before pregnancy. Hence in comparison to the weight before pregnancy the weight gain is more then be sure that you are carrying multiple pregnancy.
- Severe Fatigue or Morning Sickness – Morning sickness and fatigue these symptoms are also seen in pregnant women who carry single baby. But in case of multiple pregnancy the severity level of these two things is more. But this is also not a rule for all pregnant women carrying multiple pregnancies. In case this is your second pregnancy then it is easy for you to find the difference between fatigue and morning sickness then and now. If the severity is more then surely you are expecting twins or multiples. But such women who have second pregnancy as multiple pregnancies are very few. Also for those who are into their first pregnancy the comparison thing doesn’t works out. But when you are near to your due date after detecting that you are carrying multiple pregnancy, these symptoms will be even more severe.
- Sensing the fetal movement in the early days of the pregnancy – It is said that if you are carrying multiples then you will feel the fetal movements in early stages of pregnancy. But there are no fixed criteria for this and doctors do not confirm these things. Many times it is possible that you experience some other kind of movement, which you consider as fetal movement. Also there is no assurance that the single child will not give strong fetal movements. There are some cases I which the pregnant women carrying multiple pregnancy have not felt the fetal movements till the 23rd week of their pregnancy.
- Ultrasound Reports – Twin pregnancy and multiple pregnancies can be easily detected with ultrasound tests. The doctor will clearly see if there are chances of multiple pregnancies on his or her computer screen. Hence the results of such tests are very accurate. Thus in case you are not able to judge form the symptoms of multiple pregnancy then ask your doctor about it.
