And at what point can the mw tell? My friend w/ twins started measuring big at some point, and that's when she got at u/s to confirm. But I never heard her say they heard separate heartbeats. But her mw doesn't use doppler, just the modified stethescope, which I think is awesome!
Anyway, I'm just curious..... And it's really pathetic as I'm a doula, but I don't have any good preg. books around for info! I gave them all away when we moved last year b/c I didn't think I'd ever need them again.... I ordered a couple last week, but they won't get here for a while (thanks amazon free shipping!)

If you want to know the sex, I think you'd want a later ultrasound, like 19-20 weeks, but if you just want to check for twins, I think pretty much anytime will work. I had a 7 week ultrasound to check dates and they confirmed that there was just one embryo (one of my main concerns! ).
This time I'm also worrying about the possibility of twins, but I think that's just because of last time.
With my second baby, I was measuring 22w at 17w and they sent me for an US, but he was just big! Born at 34w and weighed 7 lbs 14 oz and looked term, but his lungs were sooo immature poor baby.
