Hi mommas! I have a question for all of you who experienced twins. For a while now, my midwife and i have been thinking we hear twins on the doppler. Now i am measuring 3 weeks big. Odd thing is my fundal height changes. One day i measure big then two days later it matches the week. She thinks that if it is twins then it could be their positioning. When we listen on the doppler we hear one clear galloping heart beat somewhere and the we will find a softerter one somewhere else. We know you can hear one heartbeat in multiple places but finally two day ago while i was laying on my side i had her check and we found one really loud galloping one on the bottom and then finally another galloping up top near pubic bone. It was so different then what we had been hearing and figure one is behind the other and by lying on my side, got one to move do we could hear it better. Does this sound like anyone elses experience. I have a gut feeling its two and am going to get an ultasound done in the next week or so to see...what do you think?

It very well could be!! My twin boys heartbeats were distinctly different in their pace. If it is twins feel free to reach out to me. I know I had a lot of questions when I became pregnant with twins. Let me know what happens at you ultrasound.

So I had my ultrasound yesterday! No twins, just a healthy baby boy! I do have an anterior placenta which would be the reason that I don't feel him move across the belly as much. We were watching him and she said oh he's moving, you feel it? And as I watched him move across my belly, I didn't really feel it. That would explain why I would feel jabs and kicks on one side and then more on the other side because I wouldn't feel him moe over. That was nice to know. Ecstatic to know I'm having another boy, twins or not!

I have an anterior placenta too. I can hear my own heartbeat on my doppler at the spot that I am guessing the cord is inserted into my placenta.
