How soon can you tell if you are pregnant with twins?

“You can guess as much as you want, but until you have the ultrasound examination, it’s all just speculation,” says Dr. Grunebaum. Luckily, most mamas don’t have to wait long to know for sure. “Today, twins can usually be diagnosed as early as six to seven weeks of the pregnancy,” he adds.

Placental position plays a role, too; an anterior (front-facing) placenta can “block” you from feeling flutters and, later, even kicks for weeks longer than other moms.
