Ok so lve had the early scan because lve had previous problems. Scan went fine baby where it should be, correct size, good heart beat.
When l jokingly said to the lady scanning me 'oh so it is just the one then?' (both sides of family have twins!) she looked at me and said 'well actually l cant promise that its not - lve scanned you twice and can only definatelty see one but lm not 100% sure thats why l scanned twice so lm only going to say its one for now if its two they will show up on your 12wk scan'
Has anyone else had simular happen? l am very confused and just a bit worried - l know its early days but she must of had her suspicions to scan me twice - why wouldnt the second show up, could it have been hiding behind the other?
Very happy either way - have been pregnant quite a few times and have one DC so we are very lucky to have her - any others would be a blessing. Plus both sides of the family have twins so we are actually surprised we haven't been pregnant with twins before.
I just wondered if anyone else had had the same - dont think l can wait til 12 weeks the suspense is driving me crazy
Poppys mum - Dh has just asked me (and l have very little knowledge on twins) do you know is it more likely to be unclear if they are id twins? Not sure why this would make a difference but he just wondered if anyone knew.
Nearly always you'll see two - even as early as 5 weeks when you'd see two sacs if appropriate. It's very rare to not see the second twin at 7 weeks.. but - it can happen. Very rare, but not impossible. As you say, it's one hiding behind the other. That's why they make no guarantees!
