  • Another baby that's not seen? Sounds like maybe twins. I'd ask the doctor to clarify! And for another ultrasound.

  • what that might mean is that you've got twins in there. the one that can be seen is hiding it. The best thing I can say to you though is to take it as easy as possible. stay off your feet as much as you can. I would talk more indepth to your doc about it. have him answer all your questions, and don't leave until you're satisfied. that's their job to answer your questions. Until you see him/her again, though take it easy.

  • This doesnt sound right, I swear dr's these day's, by them telling you that they should have also had more ultra sound's done like the 3d one, make sure your in charge not them, if you want it done they have to do it!

  • Hey there! Ya that sounds like they mean twins..and if you have twins you deliver sooner than if theres just one in there. But you should talk to your doctor..and i agree with sillybabys..make sure your in charge not them.

  • if you were having twins, regardless if 1 is not seen, they wouldl be able to tell when they listen to the heartbeat at each visit, they would be able to hear 2 sets... just ask them to clarify what they mean by it... sounds like you have a dr that speaks too quickly without thinking things thru
