Found heartbeat(s) MoM please weigh in (loss mentioned)
 
I will be 19 weeks on Tuesday. I haven't been to see anyone about the pregnancy because I kept losing babies around 15 weeks so I wanted to wait it out (doctor fear-hater here). I was supposed to be seen last week, but they canceled and I am getting seen now at 20 weeks.

I wasn't feeling movement this morning so I checked for a heartbeat and instantly the doppler got smacked, so okay relief, but still wanted to check the heart (my doppler doesn't have a BPM counter), I go hunting and find one heartbeat nice and strong near my pelvic bone on the right, then I did a quick scan around to see where the placenta is now (it's on the move constantly) and found another heartbeat, nice and strong in the upper left area. So I went back down to see if it's still down near my pelvic bone, and yes, still there too. They were found about 6" apart (baby is about 5-6" long right now I think). The heartbeat(s) sounded similar enough that I couldn't tell if they were a different rate.

Maybe I'm getting both front and back of the baby?

Twins are great and all, but I have had a heck of a time keeping 1 baby alive. I don't want to walk in to my appointment in a week and get totally blind-sided with "hey you're having twins" but at the same time, I don't want to be worried unnecessarily about twins if this is normal for singletons and I'm just not remembering since it has been 5 years since I've been this far along.

Any thoughts would be great.

I can't answer your question but you are always in my prayers. :hugs: every time I check on you and the pregnancy I get a lump in my throat. I am so happy you are still pg! And this far along! :)

I don't have any help I'm sorry, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that this pregnancy goes smoothly. Good luck at your appointment.

If it were me I would probably just assume there is two in there and that way if the doctor confirms it then it wont be such a shock, and if there is only one then you don't have to keep thinking and worrying about there being two. Hugs.

The heart beat can echo and pick up clear across the belly. So there is still a good chance that there is just one. I have had it happened many times, and even sound different. But again there is alway still that chance. :O)

The hearbeat can "travel" so to speak. Baby is actually about 6" from crown to rump, so probably, in reality, closer to 10" total, so not so small :)

^ I agree, probably an echo through the amniotic fluid.
Twins would be fun, though!

Twins are fun and scary at the same time. Good luck to you. Yes the heartbeat can Echo.
