Intro....and still in shock

Hi everyone.  I just found out I was pregnant last week, saw one heartbeat, everything looked good.  Had another u/s today because I had so many fertility issues getting pregnant he wanted to see me again.....and SURPRISE! Two babies.  I am in shock.....excited, but scared as hell.

The other thing freaking me out is that at this point he didn't see a membrane between the babies, meaning possibly one sac.  But he said it may be too early to see it.  Did anyone else have this happen in the beginning?

  • Congrats and welcome!  Mine are ID, but I never had a really early u/s.  We could barely see the membrane at 10+ weeks.  I think it's pretty common, so try not to stress and enjoy the "twin shock"!
  • Congrats & Welcome!  Yes, it is shocking, exciting, and scary all it one.  They saw two sacs for me, so no advice there.  I hope everything works out great for you.

    Congrats and welcome!  It took me a good week or so to recover from serious shock - I actually have no memory of driving home from the u/s appt. :)

    We didn't see a membrane until 12 weeks despite u/s every two weeks from 6 weeks on so don't worry yet.  Some ladies on this board have seen it even later - the odds are on your side that you'll find one.

  • Congrats!!

    I don't have any advice on the membrane.  I don't recall whether they saw it or not at 8 weeks, but definitely at 12.
