  • They should be able to tell at her first ultrasound :) Which they usually do around 10-13 weeks for both of my pregnancies :)

  • As soon as she has her first ultrasound she will know.

  • Her 1st ultrasound will show twins (or more) unless one is hiding well. I've known a couple of women who, even with all the technology,didn't know til delivery that they had twins because one was a bit smaller and hiding behind a vital organ.

  • They can tell if she is having twins when she has her first ultrasound. Congratulations!!

  • I knew at 5 weeks that I had two sacs, and at 7 weeks we could see two beating hearts. Having a mom who is a twin and high hCG numbers is definitely reason for suspicion, so maybe her doctor will request an early ultrasound to take a look. One baby or two, congrats Grandma!!!
