Can it be twins???

Hello everyone... I'm 20 yrs old and 25 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. I've only had two ultrasounds so far once at 15 weeks and one at 18 weeks. During these we only saw one baby but in my 18 weeks picture if you look closely it looks like another face but its hiding. Twins run strong on both sides of my family should I bring this to my doctors attention? Everyone says it looks like another baby... I need help.

Ultraaound techs really would have caught it. And two heartbeats as well.

Only your mothers family influences twins, and thats only for fraternal twins - identical twins are luck of the draw. However, it doesn't hurt to talk to your doctor. More than likely there's only one - they're trained to look for things out of the ordinary and while they can miss it (and I'm sure several people will post saying their uncles cousins neighbor had it happen to them) its not common.

keep us posted however they should have picked up at least by the 18 week u/s... i was pregnant with identical twin boys in 07-08 and didn't find out i was having twins til my 3rd ultrasound at 14-15 weeks. but at 18 weeks surely they would have seen the baby or an extra hb, but never hurts to ask the dr anyways.

I'm 10w 4d and they found 2 in there. I'm having twins. My first ultra sound he only seen one and heard one heart beat. Then last week I went to emergency and they found 2 babes and 2 heart beats. Just ask your doctor to take another look.
