Ok so this morning I checked the h/b on the Doppler and it sounded funny. It was strong, but it had a strong echo. I got it at 165.

So then I was telling my DH about it and he freaked out over the possibility of twins and asked me to check again. So I checked again and it sounded the same, except if I pointed the probe right it sounded normal with a rate of 165, and if I pointed it left I got a rate of 155. In the middle it echoed and bounced around from 147 to 165.

I had an u/s at 6 1/2 weeks and only saw one though. It couldn't possibly be twins right? This is the first time I even heard the echo. Although I can say sometimes I get the h/b on the left and sometimes on the right. Anyone??

I might call and see if I can schedule an u/s. I am just terrified of the price.

It could happen, my friend on another board had this very thing happen! But also, does the placenta carry its ow heart beat ( sound anyway )?

I'm unsure. I think it does, but I am not sure that it is the same as the h/b.

I know that I can pick up the placenta sounds separately from the baby's HB.. The placenta has a distinct sound to it though.. you can hear the beat but also hear a windy sound like the wind blowing through trees.

My friend had an ultrasound at 9wks where they only saw one baby,but she has twin 7mo old girls.


So, it's possible. If you are certain it was not your heart, or the placenta sound then it could be. If it was just echoing the one baby, you would think it would be the same rate on the left side, just more faint. Not a totally different heart rate.

Hmm, I have gotten the hb all over the place - lil bugger moves a lot! So, perhaps it just shot to the other side and you caught the echo as it moved? I have no clue, but usually, not always, but usually, they catch if you are pg with twins during u/s.

Yeah I need to call today to see how much the NT u/s will cost me. The doctor opted out of it because of me being a cash patient.

The placenta Definitely has an Echo to it. I wouldnt worry about it too much the baby was probably hanging out in the back of the uterus.
