Did your identical twins show up on a 6wk scan

I had a 6 wk scan yesterday and the sonographer commented that there was some 'blurring' and she couldn't rule out identical twins. I wasn't sure whether this was just a throw away line or whether she really suspected but couldn't be sure.

Did any of you with matching beans have an early scan?

i didn't have a scan til 12 weeks and they showed up clear as day. But I have heard of a number of people who had very early scans, nothing was mentioned about twins then they were confirmed at a later scan. Either way - congratulations on being pregnant.

Thanks Jenny, I always fancied twins but with 2 boys already there's only one thought in my head: "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH"

The next 6 weeks will be long...

Sod's law they'd be boys as well!

My non-id twins were two very clear little twirling prawns at a 6 week scan. I suppose identical twins might be less easy to spot if they were in the same sac or something?

dophus i know someone who had 2 girls and um and aahd about trying for a boy, obviously they were given twin girls. There is a lady in my twin club with 2 sets of boy twins 18 mths apart. The mind boggles.

I had a 10 week scan and my identical boys were very obvious! 2 tadpoles, one waving at us!!

Congratulations Dophus! My id twins both showed up at 6wk scan - totally unplanned pregnancy, thought it was an ectopic and hey-presto... 2 years and 2 gorgeous boys later I'm still laughing at my initial reaction... 'f* hell you're joking!!!?' Totally worth it thoughgrin All the best at your next scan... keep us posted.

This was also unplanned - I had an ectopic earlier in the years which was why I was in for the early scan.

Did you have one or two egg sacs?

Despite the hardship - there's a bit of me really wanting it to be twins. The rational side twitches in horrow at the though of four children. Mainly the finacial implications.
