how long...

I went to my dr this morning and he put the doppler on my stomach to see if we could hear the twins heartbeats, well we were able to hear ONE of them, but we couldnt hear the second one. I have a scheduled ultrasound tomorow, but was kind of wondering if anyone else had this same situation or one similar. How long do you think it would really take to be able to hear both of them on the office doppler? OR do you think maybe it could be one miscarried? Thanks for the info to the individuals whom reply. God Bless............

  • well i don't have twins but do know that maybe the other one was way under the first one, and maybe that's why you couldn't hear it. good luck

  • I dont have twins either but my bestfriend did and she didn't know she was having twins until she as like 23 wks thats when she had her first ultrasound. they didnt hear two heartbeats the hole time with that doppler thing. I'm sure everything is fine.
