How can they not know the number of babies in women like octamom on ultrasound?

Looking at shadows: An ultrasound is a way to use a sonar probe evaluate a two dimensional field.For multiple pregnancies its like counting potatoes moving around in a sack , only seeing one direction at a time. Unless you can find something distinctive about one of the potatoes, it would be easy to under/over count the total number this way.With 8 not all would be visible @ 1 time. ...Read more
