Has anyone ever found a SURPRISE twin???

I've heard a lot of stories where Mother's were pregnant with multiples but didn't know it until way later in pregnancy... even after the u/s. They say the other could be hiding behind the other one. Did this ever happen to any of you?

  • It didn't happen to me. But one of my mom's friends didn't know she was having twins until she was actually giving birth! Kinda freaky if ya ask me!

  • usually the doctor will tell you if they are 100% sure there is only one baby and if not they will do a second us i think with the advances in medical technology it is much more rare occurance today than even 20 years ago. Personally I have not heard any stories of this happening RECENTLY.
