At 9 weeks a scan would have shown if you were having twins. Are you sure you are not just eating too much? I had twins and wasn't even showing at 3 months. Some women can hardly look pregnant right up until the 9th month, while others could sit a dinner plate on their tummy. It's doubtful you are having twins, but, you are obviously retaining a great deal of fluid (embryo fluid) and once you've had the baby it won't take that long to get back to somewhat of a normal state. Congratulations!

What if no heartbeat is heard at 9 weeks?

If you have an ultrasound at 9 weeks and there is no heartbeat detected, that means your pregnancy isn't viable and you're having a miscarriage.

Are you having a boy or a girl if the fetus's heartbeat is 150?

It is impossible to tell by rate of the heartbeat. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is speaking old wives tales. The above answerer said that you can tell for sure by an ultrasound. You cannot. Sometimes the baby keeps its legs together or is at a difficult angle and you sonographer can't see, and sometimes it is just impossible to tell.
