CRAZY AND VERY CONFUSING IS ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS PREGNANCY. STARTED OFF AT THE ER WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS 7 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH FRATERNAL TWINS THEY SAID ONE HAS A HEARTBEAT AND THE OTHER THE DOC SAID HE IS NOT SURE IF IS A VIABLE FETUS OR IT COULD BE IN RARE CASES IMPLANTED LATER THEN THE FIRST EGG SO THE BABIES WOULD HAVE DIFFERENT GESTATIONAL AGES. HE SAID MOST LIKELY IT WILL "VANISH". AT MY OB AT 10 WEEKS THEY FOUND ONLY ONE HEARTBEAT AND SAC. MY DUE DATE CHANGED FROM AUG 17TH TO AUG 9TH. THIS WAS VERY UPSETTING FOR ME BECAUSE I LOOKED FORWARD TO HAVING TWINS. I WAS HAVING SUCH BAD SICKNESS I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AT 18 WEEKS HAVING hyper gravidarum AT THIS TIME THE TECH DID ANOTHER ULTRASOUND AND ONLY FOUND ONE BABY AGAIN AND TOLD ME I WAS HAVING A GIRL. AGAIN AT 22 WEEKS IN THE ER BECAUSE OF A GOOD AMOUNT OF CLEAR FLUID CAME OUT OF ME I GOT THE MOST SUSPICIOUS ULTRASOUND PICTURE I HAVE EVER SEEN. FIRST OF ALL NOW THE TECH SAYS IN HAVING A BOY AND AGAIN CHANGES MY DUE DATE TO NOW AUG 2ND!!!!!!! IN THIS PICTUURE YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE IM HHAVING A BOY AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO SEE A FIGURE OF ANOTHER HEAD/ARMS/LEGS/EVEN A BRIGHT WHITE SPOT WHERE A HEART WOULD BE. THIS OTHER"FIGURE" IS A GOOD AMOUNT SMALLER THHEN MY OTHER BABY BOY! UN-B-ELIEAVBLE~~~!!!!! NOPE! I HAD A DREAM I WAS HAVING TWINS BEFORE I KNEW I WAS EVEN PREGNANT AND I BELIEVE I KNOW MY BODY! I WAS JUST SEEN ONCE AGAIN NOW @ 26 WEEKS FOR LABOR PAINS WHERE THEY HOOKED UP THE HHHEART MONITOR IN TRIAGE AND WE LISTENED TO MY SONS HEARTBEAT WHICH VARIED FROM 135-145. WHEN THE RN CAME BACK IN I ASKED HER TO CHECK THE OTHER SIDE OF MY STOMACH ABOVE MY BELLY BUTTON ALMOST RIGHT UNDER MY RIB. I TOLD HER I FEEL AS IF I HAV ANOTHER BABY THERE AND IF SHE CAN LOOK FOR A HEARTBEAT. THE RN LOOKED AT ME IN DISBELIEF AND TOLD ME IF A ULTRASOUND DIDNT DETECT A SECOND BABY THAT IT WOULD BE UNLIKELY..... 5 MINUTES LATES SHE HAS THE OTHER PROBE AND IS LOOKING ON MY FAR LEFT SIDE NEAR MY HIP I TOLD HER TO COME UP HIGHER NEAR MY RIB AND BOOOOOMMMMMMM THE LOUDEST HEARTBEAT!!!!!!! COULDNT OF MISTAKEN IT IF SHE WANTED TO! SHE IMMEDIATLEY PUT ON BOTH AND WATCHED AS THE TWO DIFFERENT HEARTBEATS FLUCTUATED BETWEEN NUMBERS!!! RARLEY WERE THEY EXACTLY THE SAME IN A 5 MINUTE PERIOD! SHE TOOK THE PROBES OFF AND SUGGESTED I SEE MY OB ABOUT IT AND SHE COULDNT SAY FOR SURE WHAT WAS HAPPENENING!!!! RIDICULIOUS! I KNOW THERE IS TWO! IM 26 WEEKS MEASURE FULL TERM! ANYONE ELSE HAVE ANY INFO/ADVICE!!!!?????
