Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

How early can doctors detect if I am pregnant with twin?

If they do a serum HCG level, they will have an idea if it is a singleton or possible multiples immediately. They can't tell for sure until the first ultrasound which can be done as early as 5 weeks gestation. At this point in time they can see how many sacs with yolks are present. I had an ultrasound at 5 1/2 weeks due to bleeding and it showed twins!
