Looks like....

Twins. Dr could not be certain. Hoping you ladies have some insight for me, because I am kind of losing my mind atm.

There were DEFINITELY 2 sacks, clear as day. One was smaller than the other, and it kind of looked like they wrapped around each other if that makes sense. Like think of a paisley shape, and then 2 hooked together, big sides to small sides. You can only see one big part of the paisley, and then one small part of the other paisley. (Hope I have some visual mamas here!)

You could only see one baby clearly. The other sac looked like it was empty, but again, kind of looked like some of it was hiding behind the other. The ultrasound had some shadowing. The Dr was able to confirm that the sac was filled with amniotic fluid, not blood. He was perplexed as to why it would still be filled with fluid if the other baby was gone.

He is the Chief of the OB Dept at the hospital. He was in a rush (my whole appt - abdominal ultrasound, pap, breast exam, consult, and vag ultrasound took about 30 minutes TOTAL). He said he could not confirm or deny the twins, but he was again perplexed as to why there were 2 sacs.

He also found a fibroid. He said it didnt look like anything to worry about, and that it was very small.

So, I will go back at 19 weeks for another ultrasound. Unless I break down and go get an independent one before that, which is COMPLETELY LIKELY bc I NEED TO KNOW! Dr said until then, keep an eye out for anything strange.

Also, he changed my dates based on measurements of the baby he could see. I am only 9 weeks. EDD is now 11/23.


WTFFFFFF! I need to know! I can't live with a 'maybe' it's twins! I was just accepting the fact that I will have 2 kids close in age (which we wanted, but still it's something to prepare yourself for!). Now to have twins and a 2 year old!?

Any insight helpful.

No joke, I would have one booked too. That is surprising they didn't want to see you again like within the next month. Are you being seen at a MTF?

I wouldn't be able to wait either. When is your next appointment? Maybe they can tell with the doppler.
