6 Weeks Twin Pregnancy Ultrasound
Hope Not!: By 8 weeks, it should be fairly easy to see 2 fetuses with their own hearts. This is a good time to define number of gestational sacs and placental disposition. Exactly what are the credentials of the person doing the sono? That is very important. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Could it take longer to see pregnancy through transvaginal ultrasound in case of having twin pregnancy ?
Ask our ObGyn Specialists
How late can you detect a heartbeat from twin pregnancy with transvaginal ultra sound? If demise of one twin will other twin have issues?
Twin is high risk..: Generally, embryonic cardiac activity is seen between 5 and 6 menstrual weeks of pregnancy - single or twins or triplets. If both fetuses share a single placenta (monochorionic, monoamniotic placentation), and if one is demised, the other will likely have problems. A main concern is the effects of twin-twin transfusion. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Can a pregnancy ultrasound miss a twin? I had an early (8 weeks) ultrasound and the doctor said she couldn't rule out twins at this point. Could another baby really be "hiding"? Only one heartbeat detected, so i don't know what to expect.

Usually they won't say something like that unless there is some hint at twins though, unless it's really a thing they always add to protect themselves. I'd ask why they said that.

Definitely okay: So long as your doctor has not told you that there is a reason you should not be walking or exercising in pregnancy, walking is great. Even 60 min a day. Exercise in pregnancy actually decreases your risks in pregnancy, so that's great you're committed to a healthy pregnancy. If you were to bleed/spot or start cramping, let your doctor know, asap. Good luck and have a great twin pregnancy! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
