It seems very early to know you are pregnant with twins. It's also very early to for an ultrasound as well.
You'll just have to wait for the next couple of weeks and then find out from the doctor. I also agree with Sarah about the guy doing the scan, he shouldn't have said anything.

First, the "scan guy" is not a doctor and should not tell you anything about your babies. 7 weeks is very early and only time will tell if both fetuses are developing and healthy. How do you know you are having twins so early?
