I had a positive pregnancy test at what i thought was exactly 4 weeks but going by my first ultrasound i was only 3 weeks 3 days. I had my Merina removed the month before. I had a dating scan and was told i was 6 weeks 6 days but my Dr was in a rush so i didn't get photos and was in and out in 6 minutes. Ever since i fell pregnant I've had really bad all day and night sickness, Extreme tiredness and am getting stretch marks on my stomach which i never got in my previous 2 pregnancies at all and i'm now only 12 weeks today. I'm dreaming on twins and snakes? I have this strong feeling it is twins, is it possible the Dr missed a baby on the first ultrasound? Or is my hopefullness being mistaken for intuition?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Yes, mines were confirmed at 9 weeks since at 5 when I had the first sonogram, one of the sacs appeared to be empty

I had twins 5 years ago, and I didn't find out till I was ab out 4 months along. I had gone in multiple times before that, and my Dr never suspected it. It was when we went to the ER and they seen another leg, he was under my ribs, so it wasn't noticeable.
