Anyoen found a surprise twin when they thought they were only preggo with one???

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?

  • I hope not!! lol I had a dating U/S, and there was only one. But my mom has to tease me and say that there could still be another, because twins run in the family. They skip a generation, and it's my generation's turn. Me and my cousin are the 2 left to have babies, so my mom thinks it'll be me. I doubt it. I told her when we got back from our ob appointment: "We only heard 1 heartbeat!!"
    2 babies, and my hubby's in grad school... I hope not! They'd be loved of course, but yeah!

  • No, I haven't, but when my mom was pregnant with me the Dr's told her she was having twin boys.....Well the day came and out came ONE girl. lol. I don't know how they thought she was having twin boys....Maybe because that was about the time that ultrasounds were first being used.....
