Help, I just found out I am having twins!
I am 8 weeks pregnant, and just recently found out I am having twins. When did everyone begin to show with twins? Also, I am trying to figure out how (or if) I can determine from my ultrasound if I am having fraternal or identical twins...it LOOKS like they are in 2 seperate sacs, but Im not sure what I am looking at. Any help is appreciated!

I'm 27 weeks  and I started showing at around 15 weeks. If your babies have their own placentas they are most likely fraternal, but they could still be identical. It just depends on when the egg split.

Congrats!  I started showing around 15 weeks.    If your u/s kinda looks like 2 eyes, looking at you, they are in seperate sacs.  Lol.

Congratulations! I'm 23 weeks with a boy and girl that are fraternal, the doctor can usually tell if they are identical or not. But look for a small line between the two babies. Good luck!:)

Usually identical twins share sacs and placenta's and fraternal usually have their own your doctor will look and should be able to tell for sure when you're a look little further in your pregnancy I'm having fraternal twins I'm 23 weeks I'm rather small and I started showing early like 10 weeks
