Could I be having twins?

I have had 2 sonograms done but only one has shown up and the heartbeat was good and strong according to the tech. I showed my mom and right away she saw another face and body in the back... It looks a bit faint but when you pay attention to it its visible... I'm wondering could I be having twins and the tech just didn't see it or what it is... Twins do run in the family and my grandmother didn't find out until she was eight months pregnant...I'm a bit heavy so I'm wondering could it be hiding?

you've had two sonograms, with two different techs? How far along were/are you?
In general, techs and doctors are trained to see things and to differentiate between shadows and blurs and baby, while moms..... well, aren't.
It's not impossible, but highly improbable.

Agree with Megan- at 10 weeks they look like a gummy bear, at 12 weeks they have limbs but not really 'faces' like you described. How far are you now? Do you have one around 20 weeks planned yet?
They would have been able to see two pretty clearly that early, and twice.
Again I highly doubt it.

If you were only 12 weeks at the last sonogram I don't think you would be seeing much of a distiguishable face and body. At that point it would most likely look like a blob with semi noticable limbs.

the first sono was done at ten weeks and the second was done at 12 weeks because doctor thought i was going to miscarry since my hormone levels went down so they decided to do another sono... both of the sonograms didn't last more than 5 minutes...
