  • They may listen for heartbeats before the ultrasound, but other than that, no.

  • There isn't a way for you personally to tell but a Dr. can usually tell before the ultrasound that they don't usually schedule until your 16-20 weeks. The dr. may hear two heartbeats etc..

  • nope! sry sweetie not even the heartbeat can be deciphered as two until you get a sonogram

  • An Ultrasound can detect that!.....How far along are you??....Gaining double the weight...or even showing quite a bit when your not even that far along can SOMETIMES mean twins.

    Twins run in mine and Fiance's family also....but no twins. Just 1 boy (5 months) and 1 girl(2 yrs) for us! =)
