Ask more questions. Get them to show you on the ultrasound the twins. I'm sure if the ultrasound tech saw twins they would have told you!
It's no use asking us, you need to be getting answers from the people who are looking after you and seeing you.

They can definitely hear two heartbeats when you are pregnant w/ twins. 3 actually cuz they can hear yours too. ;)

At 20 weeks they should be able to see 2, not just hear them. I would be getting a 2nd opinion.

I am sorry about assuming that they should hear two heartbeats. I should not have given an advice based on something I don't know.

At 20 weeks they should be able to hear two heart beats. You might even start feeling kicks from too as well :) Did you say you had an utrasound at 20 weeks? If that is the case they should be able to determine from that. When the doctor tells you you are having twins he must have based it on something.

The only way to know if you are having twins is via the ultrasound... or giving birth to two babies. No one on here can answer this question. All we can do is speculate one way or the other w/out any accuracy or real knowledge.

Have they seen 2 babies on the ultrasound? That would be the best way to tell rather then looking for "symptoms". Everyone is different so they can't say you are having twins just on what you are going through in pregnancy.
My belly was huge with all 3 of my babies and I only had 1 at a time. Being your 2nd you do tend to show earlier and look bigger anyway.
I would be getting an ultrasound to confirm and not listen to the doctor's old wives tales!
