Twin Mums - did anyone have on your first scan them say only one baby?

Hi all,

Just curious...did any of you have a 6 week scan to be told one baby and then find out at next scan there were two? I had my 6 week scan and they said just one but my Mum is convinced its twins (my tummy has expanded massively!) and said that she's heard its common for them to miss one early on....so was wondering if that happened to any of you?

I think it's harder now than ever to miss a twin.

Especially if they used the intra-vagina ultrasound on the 6w scan.

To be honest, I'd go with the ultrasound over a "Mum's Intuition" but hey, she could be right.

Hiya,

My mum thought I was having 2 but I only had 1. Ultrasounds nowadays are extremely good. They can even measure the blood flow through the umbilical cord through ultrsound!

If they've said that you're having 1 I'd go with that chick!

Lucky I was going to say that one of the girls I know from my twins NCT class was told she was having 2 but at an early scan but at the 12 week scan they found a third so it does happen. Good luck with your main scan.

Many MANY congratulations luckysmb!
I bet it was wonderful seeing your little baby today - the 12 week scan is a big milestone too, so its great it went well.

I thought I would update the thread about my scans, they did miss one of my girlies but it is very uncommon for this to happen now. It happened to me because I had a very early scan (5 weeks 6 days) and this was only because they wanted to give me immune treatment at this time. So it was a quick look, with ancient scanning equipment. I don't think they even took measurements (?) They did all that at my next scan.
