Missed twin at 23 weeks!?

Ok. so i posted a question a couple weeks ago about my doctor being concerned about me measuring 5 weeks bigger. I had an ultrasound set up for the 9th but with my worrying i was able to get in earlier. My first ultra sound was at 23 weeks 4 days. I am now 34 weeks and the u/s tech informed me that BOTH babies are fine! How could they miss one at the 23 week ultrasound?!?

The only thing I can think of is that the tech was inexperienced. However, there are also cases where a female is told later in pregnancy it's twins and it's really not. Get another ultrasound done at a completely different area, and have them perform the ultrasound. See what they can find.

What's the earliest ultrasound you had done?

Ah. That complicates it a little. If you had a dating scan done early 12 weeks and sooner you would know for sure. I'd definitely get another scan done.
