Dang! We don't get 20 weeks scans at all here. They only saw the one at the 13 week one, so I figure there's just the one there.

This happened when my Mum was in hospital. A lady came out of delivery, and then called out "help, I'm having a baby!". The midwives tried to calm her down - "Now now dear, you've had your baby, there she is" etc, but when they looked, she was! Twin was delivered about an hour after firat one

Wow really Milliways! its mad isnt it! i really cant understand how you can miss another baby on a scan nowadays though! surely thats one of the main reasons to have scan! I have to say i got asked that few times too iklboo when i was pregnant with my first! and then when he was born he was 10lb! - so we came to the conclusion that ds was 2 babies in one!

i was worried sick when I was preg with ds as I was enormous with him. As a twin myself I was paranoid I would have a set of my own so every scan I asked the sonographer to "just check". Only one though!

Lol jampots i think i would have been the same! im due to have our third baby in about 5 weeks and twins runs in our family so now i have no more scans booked i have to say im growing a little paranoid!! im pretty sure i would know by now though as i do have quite big babies so if there were 2 in there i dont think i would be quite so small still!

Blimey - what a shock that must have been !
Hope all are doing well.

I have been told there is only one but I am huge this time round and keep having vivid dreams about giving birth to twins, fil is a twin and there are twins on my mums and my dads side of the family so i am worrying a little ohh well will find out in 4 weeks time have all the stuff i need for a singleton as we kept all dd's would however need to go shopping for second crib/moses, cot, bouncey chair, six more bottles, double buggy if it turned out to be a prophetic dream. I wouldn't need to double up on anything else would I?
