  • We had an implantation ultrasound and found out about our angels early on.

    Most don't find out until their 20 week ultrasound because we all carry differently

  • You'll know the first time you have an ultrasound. Unless there are signs that point towards a multiple pregnancy or you're having compilcations you may not have an ultrasound until around 20 weeks. Being and identical twin doesn't increase the odds that you'll have twins because identical twinning is not determined by genetics. Whether you're having one baby or two, good luck and congratulations!
