  • I delivered twins but I knew I was having twins at like 5 months. I think that would be a huge shock to someone who is only expecting one baby.

  • I don't think that really happens anymore. Ultrasound technology being what it is, most women who see a doctor on a regular basis would know whether or not they are having multiples.

  • My grandma was told she was only expecting one, but wouldn't you know, two were born! She always told us grandkids that when she had her dr appointments the heartbeats were in sync.
