Has anyone ever found out later in their pregnancy or had twins after the doctor told you you were only having one baby?

I didn't find out until I was 20 weeks along. There was no indication up until that point when I had my first ultrasound.

I once dated a guy who's mother did not know she was pregnant with twins until after the first was born! She told her husband (who was delivering the babies at home during a tornado!) that it felt like there was another one, and he (a paramedic) kept telling her it was probably just the placenta. 15 minutes later, my ex-boyfriend's identical twin brother was born! It was her fourth pregnancy, and she swears it felt like any of her others, with just a little more movement. She was a bit larger, but thought it was just because it was her fourth! When she got pregnant with her sixth child, she made sure to get an early ultrasound!

Thanks Andrea... Well I go Tuesday for my 20 week ultrasound and to hopefully find out the sex of the baby, but so far this pregnancy has just been crazy for me! My first pregnancy I had every symptom... This one, I have every symptom times ten and I am already as big now as I was at 7 mths last time (Have only gained 2 lbs though? With my daughter I only gained 7) I was just wondering how often it actually happens I have this gut feeling....

My first ultrasound didn't show twins and I even asked if I was carrying twins, but my second ultrasound did. I had identical twin boys. My second son was hiding and was hard to see throughout my pregnancy.

I have heard of that happening, but it hasn't happened to me. That's insane tho. you'd think with all the tehnology out there, how many kids you're having would be an easy thing to find out. What happened and how did it make u feel?
