So I'm getting close to 3 and a half months and twins are pretty common in my family and I was just wondering if it's possible to have an ultrasound and still not know you are having twins? I'm getting pretty big now, quite a bit bigger than I would have expected, especially now. Anyway, regardless, I just wanna know if it's possible to not know cuz I have had two ultrasounds and they haven't seen anything but my aunt had a similar experience and did'nt know she was having twins until 5 months...

  • lol, sorry gaamom, but I read your post and I was like... is she gay? or is it a guy? and I was reading your name... like as a name and pronouncing jah-mon and then I finally got it. like the name btw, just laughing at myself for apparently little things cause brain overload these days.
    But, yes it's possible. My in-law who's a chiropractor is convinced I have twins even though my ultrasounds at this point still show one little being. And I'm still before 20 weeks..

  • I found out I was pregnant with twins at 7 weeks. They would know by now because they would see either 2 sacs 2 placentas or 2 babies.
