Twin Surprise

Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is feeling much better now that we are in our second trimesters. I went for my 20 week last Monday and to my surprise within 10 seconds of the tech putting the wand on my stomach says "Congrats you're having twins". With my first ultrasound and listening to the heartbeat we only found 1 baby both times in the last 2 months. Has this happened to anyone else? We are over the moon (once we got over the shock) and looking forward to this new adventure, I just know I cant be the only one this happened to. Good vibes to all you mama's to be!

    That's amazing! Congratulations! Don't know anyone else that happened to but how cool is that? Did you find out the genders?

    Congratulations!! It hasn't happened to anyone that I know, but DH and I are actually slightly terrified that this will happen to us when we go for our AS in a couple of days...we can definitely afford 2 kiddos, but 3 would be a struggle, haha. Good luck, momma!

    Wow, congrats! One of my odder dreams when I was pregnant with DD was that I went in for a scan fairly late in the pregnancy and was told there was a surprise twin that had been "hiding" behind the other baby for all of my earlier ultrasounds. Kinda scary that it actually can happen!!  :o

    Wow!  Congratulations!! 

    I've had so many dreams about this happening to me but no ultrasound yet.  I'm like @SnarkasaurusRex this would be slightly terrifying for us. 

    Do you have other kids?

    I have a 10 year old son from a previous relationship who is not very happy about having 2 sisters. Once they get here though I think he will be a great big brother. Its going to be an adjustment for all of us. Thank you all for your kind words :)

    Congratulations! So cool! I am probably one of the few "crazy" ladies who would love if this happened to me. I secretly hoped twins would happen this go around as I knew it would likely be our last. But I've already had about 6 ultrasounds so I would think they would have caught something during any of those 6.

    Congrats - wonderful news! This happened to one of my DH's coworkers a couple years ago ... they found out at the A/S and it turned out to be girls, too! More recently my son's best friend's mom was surprised by twins, but it was much earlier. She had her pregnancy confirmation at 4 or 5 weeks and when she went back for the dating scan a while later and they found a second jellybean! So exciting!
