Excess weight makes anything physical more difficult. Excess weight AND twins both predispose to pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in the urine). Depending on your previous obstetric history labor may or may not be more difficult.

I'm over 300lbs and my husband and I are trying to get pregnant what are the chances of it happening faster?

Weight does have an effect on pregnancy. There is actually a higher percentage chance of getting pregnant with twins then at normal weight. But being so severely overweight greatly increases pregnancy risks such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Being so grossly overweight greatly reduces your chances of conceiving and as the answer above states it greatly increases pregnancy risks. A BMI of 19-25 gives the greatest chance of conceiving, being at the upper end of this range increases the chances of twins not having a BMI of 47 (if you are 5'7", higher if you are shorter, lower if you are taller but still grossly obese)

How far along in a pregnancy can you tell if its twins?

I had a scan at 8 weeks and was told I was having twins and saw there were two foetuses (prior to this I had dreamt it was twins). Also when I took the pregnancy test, just as my period was due, the line on the test was really really dark. Once I discovered I was having twins I realised the line had been really dark because of my elevated levels of HGC. A faint line would have been expected so early in the pregnancy, when HGC is rising, but HGC rises faster in twin pregnancies than singleton ones, so the early indication of a high level of HGC was an early sign it was twins.

How can you improve the chances of having twins?

There are two primary types of twins, Identical and Fraternal. Identical twins occur when the egg splits after fertilization. To date no indication of a genetic link has been found. Anyone has a chance, though small, of having identical twins. Fraternal twins occur when more than one egg is dropped during ovulation. This trait can be inherited from the mother's side of the family. Studies have shown that the chances are also increased by being overweight or older.
