Pregnant with Twins?

I had my first doctor's appointment yesterday - 14 weeks and got to hear my baby's heartbeat for the first time. It was the most beautiful sound I ever heard in my life - definitely a birthday gift from God. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Yesterday was my birthday by the way.

Anyhow, during my examination, the doctor pressed really hard on my stomach, feeling for the position of my uterus I believe? Anyhow, he was really surprised at how far up it was and made a comment that I must definitely be further along than 14 weeks. I told him I know for sure my dates are correct because I was charting my cycles and my LMPs. I then asked if it was possible that I could be carrying twins since twin pregnancies do run in my family. The doctor said that's definitely a possibility - usually one of the things they consider when women measure large for their dates.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so did it turn out you were having twins? I won't be having my ultrasound for another 3 weeks so I'm really curious. I have been feeling what I believe is movement already but from my book "What to Expect When You're Expecting" that can be expected between weeks 14-22. I am a heavier set girl though so I assumed it would take longer.

I would certainly appreciate some opinions. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
