Most signs are the same, but it mainly depends on the person as well. One of the signs that I had when I was pregnant with my twins was that my morning sickness was the pits I couldn't hardly eat, but that was just me. You tend to show faster with twins a lot sooner. Example: You're 3 months pregnant and you look like you're 6. That is how I began to wonder if I was carrying twins or not. I knew that even though it was my second pregnancy and I would show sooner but I didn't realize that I would look twice as big sooner! Definately bring your concern to your OBs attention and they will more than likely get an ultrasound done sooner. Another sign is when you go to hear the heartbeat. At times you can possibly hear two different heartbeats. There are other times though that the heartbeats would be in tuned to one another and make it difficult to hear both of them and as for the baby may hide behind the other. But other than that I wish you the best of luck!

In some women it is yes. When I was carrying twins I had my symptoms very early into the pregnancy. But if your worried then see your doctor. Although I knew I was pregnant as soon as I missed my period I didn't find out I was carrying twins until I was 18 weeks pregnant, and I actually felt better with them than I had with my first singleton pregnancy. However all the later pregnancy things you get like the tiredness and heartburn came earlier than the first time.

If a man has 3 or more sets of twins on his side of the family from the older generation is it likely he will have twins also?

No. If the twins are identical there is connection at all as identical twins are totally accidental. If the twins are fraternal it is more likely his daughter or sister will have twins as they are caused by releasing two eggs which may be inherited. Yes it can happen! When I was with my first husband I was shocked that I was carrying twins (unfortunately they did not go to term) and when I asked my mother she said that 2 generations back there were 2 sets of twins born.
