Hello all!

I'm Natalie! I'm just popping in to ask some questions that I'm SURE you've gotten tons and will most likely roll your eyes at yet ANOTHER multiple wanna be! lol I actually feel dumb even asking.

So, I'm currently in my 15th week, and I am measuring in my 20th for fundal height. This is my third child...but I measured right on with my other two.

Also, I am WAY tired and still getting morning sickness! With my other two I was done all that by 10 weeks. Now I'm worried that there could be more than one in there!

I did get an 8 week ultrasound. And there is only one. mind you...the ultrasound took MAYBE a half hour including the part where me and my husband just stare in amazement! and she really didn't check everything out. Just the baby's size for dating...not my ovaries and all that jazz.

So lemmie know what you think. Obsession? or should I bring it up t the next appointment.

Thanks! And congrats on all your doubles (and more)

I assume you'll have your anatomy u/s soon. It would be nearly impossible to miss twins at that u/s if there are 2 in there. Plenty of people have a twin missed on an early u/s. We did and my OB/RE was looking at my ovaries and everything else.

Good luck.

I don't have an anatomy u/s book as of yet. I assume at my next appointment I will get a requisition for one.

SUCH a long wait!

How far along were you when they missed a twin? I've heard by 8 weeks it should be pretty obvious...

anyways, thanks for your reply.

If your measuring that far ahead then they should be doing an u/s just to make sure everything is okay and checking the size of the baby. Have your OB order an u/s. Mine were both seen at 6 weeks and saw HB's as well.

We saw both our babies at our 7 week ultrasound. Hope your OB can order an ultrasound soon so that you can avoid a long wait!

We saw ours at the 8 week u/s, but I know a girl here in town that didn't find out until over 20 weeks (and that was her 3rd u/s). Not sure when the other 2 were exactly, but my guess is at least one was 8-10 week time frame, so I don't think that it is impossible to miss one at that point.

I didn't find out until 18 weeks. It's your fundal height that has me wondering... Usually at that stage you would only measure 3 or 4 weeks ahead. At 17 weeks I was measuring 20 weeks. I would call and question it to get booked in sooner!
