I can tell this is a highly desired and anticipated pregnancy and offer you my congratulation on the success thus far. As you know, things can still go wrong as this is a very high-risk pregnancy, so see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist as soon as possible and get information on twin-to-twin-transfusion syndrome and genetic counseling. Non-invasive prenatal genetic testing is now available.

I'm 28 weeks pregnant with twins. I had an ultrasound today and my cervix was 4.0 but had minimal funneling. Should I be concerned?

Probably not.

Cervical
Your cervical length is normal and the funneling is minimal. Your doctor might reccomend a follow up exam.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

At 4 weeks 4 days my Hcg was 3,900. 40 hours later it was 7,261. My ultrasound isn't until tomorrow, I'll be 5w4d. Is that high & could it be twins?

May be

Ultrasound
There is considerable variability in HCG levels. Ultrasound exam would be better at detecting twins.See this site and discuss the matter with your doctor. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels.html

Can a yolk sac be mistaken for a twin pregnancy in 8 week ultrasound?

Hope Not!

Pregnancy
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.

Need doctor's help! Will identical twins be missed in 7 week ultrasound? 2013

I Hope Not!

Sonogram
Twins at 7 weeks should be fairly clearly visible on a transvaginal sono. As far as whether or not they might be identical, that is a more difficult question to answer by sono and requires careful analysis of the membranes surrounding fetuses, unless there is a single sac which would only be seen in an identical twins (rare). They can also be in 2 sacs however.

First ultrasound he said I was 6 weeks 5 days there was 1 gestational sac 1 yolk sac and 1fetal pole with heartbeat could yolk sac be a twin?

No

Ultrasound
The yolk sac is an early pregnancy structure, even a beginning ultrasonographer should be able to tell the difference.

Unlikely. Anything is possible, but it would have to be a really bad scan.

I am 8 weeks pregnant, have done my ultrasound yesterday and found out that I have twins in one sac measuring 7 weeks, no heartbeat!Is there any hope?

Not good...

Pregnancy_test_-_home
If you are saying that the fetal measurements are 7 weeks, called the "crown-rump" lengths, and there is no heartbeat, then this is probably a miscarriage. I would request a followup ultrasound to be sure given that this is complicated by twins. I am so sorry about what is going on with your pregnancy!

I am 39 years old and was told at a 6 week ultrasound that i am pregnant with twins theres no family history nor were any meds or ivf taken the doctor?

Congratulations!

Pregnancy
I'm not sure what your question is, but congrats on your pregnancy and on having twins.. Twins happen w/o a family history and w/o fertility treatment. They may be identical or fraternal (not identical). Your obstetrician will follow you more closely because of your age & because of the twins. Ask your Ob Dr. what the next step will be, & if you need a high risk Ob Dr. Good luck.
