Is it possible I`m 6 weeks further along than first thought, or is it more likely to be twins?

hi i`m about 9 weeks pregnant with my first child, my problem is i`ve put on about 5 kilos and my tummy has popped already, i thought maybe i could be further along then i first expected but i don`t see how i could be my last three periods were all on time and my first pregnancy tests came up negative then gradually became positive is it possible for me to be 6 weeks further along then first thought or is it more likely it`s twins?

Answer: Hi, It may just be extra fluid that is causing your tummy to bloat. If your previous periods were normal before you fell pregnant then your dates should be correct. Best wishes, Alex
