Undiagnosed Twins?

I know at some point every mom thinks there must be more than one baby in there, whether it be exaggerated symptoms, huge belly, or crazy kung-fu kicking going on. I'm just wondering if anyone has personally had or heard of someone actually having undiagnosed twins or late diagnosed twins (after 20 weeks).

  • Growing up I have a friend whose mom was told she was having twins until she 5 1/2 months along. The way the babies were positioned they were right on top of each other and they could only hear one heart beat. You are talking over 30 years ago and I think with technology and ultra sounds they way they are these days, I am not sure if it happens that often.

    Good Luck

  • There was a show on TLC of surprise twins. These women didn't have ultrasounds though. A lot of women even now don't get ultrasounds because there is no proof that they are safe.

  • One of my friends was supposed to be one baby boy and was actually 2 baby girls at birth!
