Obviously every pregnancy is different and didn't expect anyone to predict the future. I'll rephrase the question. Just wanted to know if anyone ever had an ultrasound that missed a twin. Thanks for the response. M Miriam Jjoherbanez I had an ultrasound today 12w2d showing 2 babies. Ultrasound tech was surprised she missed it at my 8 week ultrasound.
So yes, it is possible to miss a twin early on. What a blessing when we found out Didn't discover it was twins until 18 weeks. One of my friends found out about her girls at 20 weeks. So yes, it happens. At 12 wks we found out it was twins. It was a complete shock even though that pregnancy seemed totally different from the previous two. I just thought I was more likely pregnant with a boy because it was so different than my girls.
E ERamsden89 I had a scan at 6 weeks and was told there was just one. When I went at 8 weeks I was told it was twins. There are rare stories where one is hiding but at 12 weeks your womb is still quite small so is unlikely I would of thought.
All I can suggest is that it's a boy hence why this pregnancy is different or possibly vanishing twin syndrome where one twin is miscarried early on z zyxw Jjoherbanez While missing a twin does happen, it's not common. In consecutive pregnancies, symptoms are more likely to be greater especially when they're spaced as closely as yours are. At 8 weeks, they're usually seen. We saw at 10 weeks and it was very obvious. I thought it was crazy round ligament pain, but my midwife was thinking ectopic pregnancy.
I even had blood work done to test my Hcg levels. We saw one sac and one tiny baby on the ultrasound. I was told my levels were "great. So yes, it can happen! This is my 5th pregnancy and I was the most sick this time around. By 11 weeks i'd gained 14 lbs, despite lack of appetite and extreme nausea. Very unsual for me. Basically almost everything about this twin pregnancy has been different from my previous 4. Good luck to you! You mentioned you were having lower left abdominal pain?
I'm having the same exact thing!!!! It hurts when I breathe in! I went to the doc bcz it was a stabbing type of pain. They didn't do an ultrasound dont get one until 9wks. She said maybe I pulled a muscle.
But she doesn't think it's related to the pregnancy bcz the pain isn't below my belly button. What did your pain end up being and did it go away? The pain was definitely where i normally feel round ligament pain, even though the ER NP and my midwife told me it was too early for that. It lasted about 24 hours. I'd been having round ligmament pain at that point anyway.
The night before i went to the ER i rolled over in bed and had such bad stabbing pain in that area that it took my breath away! Went to the ER the next day. I am still convinced it was growing pains from two babies. I got big fast with this pregnancy! A week later at 12 wks I went to a different office for the NT genetic screening and found out it was identical twins.
This is my first pregnancy so I don't have anything to compare it to but I was sooo tired and nauseous all the time. And I definitely started showing earlier than expected.
I'm now 29wks and on bed rest trying to keep these babies in! Good luck to you either way if it is twins or not! Here's what you need to know about how it differs if you're expecting twins. These tips can help.
