My hCG is over million. On early ultrasound there was 1 baby seen. My pregnancy is determined healthy an not molar. Why such high hcg? Hiding twin?

No.: You may still have a molar pregnancy, even if a heartbeat was seen (partial mole). I would still be concerned about a complete mole given such a high hcg. Even a twin pregnancy doesn't normally go that high. ...Read more

Very possible: If you have had a thorough exam, physical and maybe some imaging. SI joint pain and dysfunction is a clinical diagnosis.

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.

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.

Possible twins: The fetus is "really small" at 8 weeks, and another could be hiding. 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. If it's standard language, don't worry about it. Otherwise, there might be something they were looking at. ...Read more

You : You could very well still be pregnant. You need to see your doctor right away for serial blood tests every two to three days to determine if the pregnancy is progressing. Your doctor may even order an ultrasound in order to determine if you are pregnant and wether or not there is a heartbeat. Best of luck. ...Read more

Why are triplet pregnancies considered much higher risk than twins?

Why are triplet pregnancies considered much higher risk than twins?

Earlier, smaller: The risk of preterm birth is higher for several reasons; triplet birth is likely to be earlier than that of twins.

What are the main differences between singleton pregnancies and twin pregnancies?

What are the main differences between singleton pregnancies and twin pregnancies?

Twice as many babies: Because the number of babies is doubled, the uterus grows larger faster; this will typically lead to a premature delivery at <37 weeks. There are also increased risks of pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia. Delivery route can also be affected if the first twin is not head down. If the first baby is head down, then a vaginal delivery of both twins can usually be performed. ...Read more
