Twins

Is it true that if you are pregnant with twins a pregnancy test will pick up a positive result earlier than if you were pregnant with just one due to the fact that the hormone levels are higher.
And can a blood test confirm an early twin pregnancy?

The pregnancy test is positive 1-3 days after a missed period. It will not be positive earlier than this even if you have twins.

Hi, it is true. I got a very strong positive on the HPT 2 days before my period was due. When the dr phoned me back with the bloodtest results, he told me that I had a very high count, and that it might be twins or I might be further along than I thought. The gynea confirmed twins at the 8 week scan!
