Has anyone ever been told you are having one baby and came out of the hospital with 2 or more?

Just curious how often this has happened. I am in no worry that this will happen to me, but my FIL was joking around with me last night that I was going to have twins because my tummy is so big, lol. So, I of course started wondering about how many women have had this happen to them.

  • It happened to someone I work with. Identical twins and they had no idea. They are 20 now.

  • I've wondered this too. And wished it because I've always wanted twins. But it had never happened to me or anyone I know. I do have a friend who is a twin and he said that's what happened to his parents. They were expecting one, him, and a minute later, his brother came out. They are identical. He said his parents weren't upset. Just happy that they were able to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, so they didn't have anymore.

  • I've only seen it happen happen on tv but if it did happen to me after I woke up from passing out lol I would tell my hubby go get another car seat and a few more things lol... There's nothing I could really do but try and make sure I have enough stuff for both babies

  • That happened to my SIL. She thought there was one, but when that 'one' was delivered, she had a second. The dr. was a bumfounded as everyone else. The ulta-sound showed 1. There was no indication with the heart beat.
