could an 8 week u/s miss a twin? Just curious.

theoretically possible, but VERY unlikely. Especially if a thorough exam is done. They spent probably 10 minutes just scanning and re-scanning for me this PG since I have a history of identical twins and had VERY high betas.

It was a quick, free scan-just enough to find a baby and a heartbeat.
I don't think I have twins-just a curiosity since I am measuring a little large for dates and I keep hearing it from family. I think there's only one in there.

I've been measuring large too, but apparenty it's just my meaty placenta (easily twice as thick as with my last child!) and a big baby.

I ended up going to the ER yesterday for pregnancy discomfort. But luckily everything turned out just fine. The doctor did manage to tell me that it seems I will be having a big baby. *WOWWWW*. I did manage to get a sneak peek of the baby*WINKWINK*. Yup it's just 1..*whew*..lol. And it is also a very hyper baby, just like my son was and still is..*yikes*. But tomorrow is hopefully the big day. My b/f and I and my son are very excited. I will keep everyone posted.

i have an earlier scan this week to see if the pain and is from a ectopic or twins


I've just got the feeling and I keep saying babies by mistake, but in my heart I only want the 1, we have no family to help and nursing one was hard enough with low supply

Absolutely! At my 8 week u/s they only saw one baby and at 14 weeks there were 2! If you ask around in the multiples forum you will see it is actually more common than you'd think for them to miss a twin, especially that early.

Well, I went to my sonogram and it's official....WE ARE HAVING A BABY GIRL..YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! I cried when the nurse gave me the news. My b/f got teary eyed and my mother in law..and my son was extremely excited. He wants to take the pics to school tomorrow..lol.

My mother was very happy when I shared the news with her and my co-workers called me on my cell and when I gave them the news, I heard everyone screaming and cheering, Lmao. Today was the happiest moment ever. I managed to convince my supervisor to give me my vacation time now because my doctor wants to run some tests on the baby for any defects. For ex; down syndrome or any other possible birth defects because of my age. So my supervisor understood and agreed. And there is a possibility I may have to go on maternity leave earlier than what I expected. I gained 4lbs but as for the baby, she is big for 18 weeks. My feet are extremely swollen and I get very tired very quickly and out of breath. So we will see about that one. Anyhoo, just wanted to share with you all what is going on from this end.
I will continue to keep all posted. nitenite.!!!
