Thanks. The fire for my paranoia has been fueled by your responses.
I had an u/s about a month ago (I think it was) to rule out ectopic pregnancy (was having sharp pain) and they only saw one. But the tech didn't appear to know fully what she was doing (long story) and she wasn't looking for how MNAY there were anyway... she was looking to make sure the baby was in the right spot. Now I'm scared that maybe a second one was missed. I've had MUCH more pronounced symptoms this time and I swear I can feel my uterus higher than it should be at only 12 weeks.
So what's the chances of missing a heartbeat? My midwife heard the one then moved the thing around heard what she said was the echo. I was fine with that until my friend said the thing about twins.
Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!

Have you or anyone you have known had twins that WERE missed on initial ultrasounds? I am getting paranoid that I'm pregnant with twins (had twins before, I'm big, feel tons of movement...) but I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks for bleeding and there was only one that they saw. I thought that was the definitive answer, but now I'm getting worried again.
Not to add some fuel, it does sound rare though.
