    i went to the doctor yesterday and got to hear my kiddos heartbeat for the first time. it was so exciting! but im only 12 weeks and the doctor said my uterus is the size of a woman who may be 15 weeks. i have had two other children and my youngest is 4 and they are one year apart. and with their pregnancies i never had a doctor tell me that my uterus is bigger than most. so i know its a new finding. does anyone have any ideas on what this could mean? if anyone has any ideas or any insite please throw them this way. thank u.

    Have you had an u/s yet? Maybe you are having twins!

    That wouldn't necessarily be the case. I'm sure if her doctor thought it might be twins, he would have said so and ordered an u/s. It is a common misconception that when you're having twins you double the symptoms, have a bigger uterus, etc...

    Colopyr, I am sure if it was something to worry about your doctor would have said something. It just might mean you have a big baby in there or that you're actually further along than you thought...
