I don't know why I came onto this forum, I don't have multiples. But I'm glad I did...
My second pregnancy seemed to start out different...I was "poochy" at only 5 weeks, definitely showing at 9 weeks. Hmm... LOTS of twins in the family.
So I go in at 10weeks for my first appt and the dr also says Hmm...you're awfully big, let's do an ultrasound. The first thing he says is "oh honey, you're not 10 weeks, you're only about 6...there's a yolk sak still" And sure enough, there's a peanut and a very noticeable round ball not far from the baby. I say that I'm positive about my dates. He takes measurements and the baby measures 10 weeks exactly. So he says "huh...oh well, guess your yolk sak hung around a while longer than usual."
I had a nagging feeling and just couldn't get over it. I called my mom who said to research twins of different gestational ages, thinking maybe I had ovulated after conception and also conceived that month. I read up on it and although it's rare, it does happen (more often in animals like cats and dogs) I also read about vanishing twin syndrome and just couldn't shake the feeling.
Next appt there was only one baby. My pregnancy went to term and I delivered a healthy baby boy. I asked them to check the placenta carefully, but nothing was found.
So I don't know... I honestly thought I had twins in the beginning...I guess I'll never know for sure.
