heck yeah its crazy. i have had alot of 2 scans with my doctor. And 2 somewhere else. The other place is the place that I found out it was twins. I went to L&D tonight and they did a scan and said the reason they could have missed them is because one is laying sideways and one is headdown. KInda laying on each other. I am so glad I found out now. i am going to see a new doctor. i am so mad that my doctors tech didnt know it was twins. I am so mad. But happy to know that it is two babies. Just watch out girls you might have twins

OMG - you're gonna make me freak out now! My sister had twins and I am terrified that I will too! I've had several scans and none of them show two babies. I WAS totally confident that it was only one baby, but now you are scaring me!!!

What made you think it was two babies this whole time? I am so sorry they missed it in the beginning. I guess finding twins can be tougher than we think, especially the further along we get. My sister had several technicians not know she ahd 2 until she told them.
Good luck!

Congrats on the twins - I am 21 weeks pregnant with twins.  However - do not assume that they are indeed fraternal twins (unless they look totally different after they are born).  Identical twins can have separate sacs and separate placentas - just like truely fraternal twins do...  so there's still a chance they could be identical!

Enjoy them!!  Just know that you can go in to labour anytime from 32 weeks on...

So the day after I posted this I went to my doctors office to do a scan to check the babies. Well my doctor said there is only one baby and thats all he could see. So I dont know what to think. I had 3 doctors and 3 nurses in the room at L&D when they did a ultrasound and said they could clearly see two babies. and that was without me telling them that I thaught there was two. The reason they did the ultrasound was because they couldnt find Faiths heartbeat. and they said baby A was head down and baby B was sideways. And a placenta was on the lower right and a placenta was on the top left... but when I went to my doctors office they could only see one baby. I am measuring big still. I dont know what to think. When my doctor did the ultrasound he was like well there is a boy in there. Then I said what do you mean I thaught she was a girl. and he looked again and then said oh yeah its a girl. how do you see a boy then a girl? I dont get it. I guess we will find out for sure when my baby comes.

I would get a new doctor and get another sonogram with someone else for sure. Because at this point I wouldn't know who to trust. I'd need a third party to confirm one thing or the other.

That is just wild!  I agree with Joy - get a new doctor with a new sonogram tech!  Good grief, how does one set of people say two babies and the other set say one?  Apparently someone has better equipment or better brains on them - haha  Oh, and I love that your doctor said there's a boy - oh wait - I mean girl...what??
Well, in any case, good luck to you and keep us posted when you know for sure...how bizarre that you may (or may not?) have 2 babies!  And, finding out at 30 weeks..what if you found out the day you delivered?!?  Surprise!  I hope you have some more names picked out!

I would switch doctors but my insurance dont cover it. So now I am stuck with this doctor. And my family tells me everyday you better be ready just in case it is two. and I know for sure that the ultrasound that was used in L&D was way better then my doctors. And they clearly seen two babies and two heartbeats. I am so freaked out about delivery because I can picture it now. I push the one baby out and then Told wait here comes another baby. I do have another name out if there is two if another girl it would be Destiney and a boy would be Donte. I thaught he was crazy too for saying well theres a boy and then he says oh I mean girl. I will keep you updated everyone
