My midwife wasn't going to have an ultrasound but her measurements were off so at 28 weeks she found out it was twins!

There was a time where there was a "twilight sleep" that women where put into for labor. Here is an article about it http://wondertime.go.com/learning/ar...in-relief.html. There is also a part on it in the movie The Business of Being Born.

My girlfriend found out at her 20wk scan, and she had no idea it was twins. She is also 6' and had no m/s.

I went in at 6wks and showed only 1 on u/s. When we went back at 10wk, the u/s showed 2! DH jokes all the time that we should've been given a refund for bad service. My only clue was getting a positive hpt at 9dpo. I had full-fledged m/s the night before! I didn't gain a lot of weight until around 30wks.

My mom found out she was having twins at 24 weeks with her first set- they didn't do ultrasounds routinely then, but she asked for one because she felt like it might be twins. Unfortunately she went into labor 2 weeks later and they didn't live long past birth.

She felt again like it was twins with my sister and I, and requested another test. She was right again at 22 weeks.

Re: Did anyone NOT find out they were having twins until LATE pregnancy or delivery?

Hmmmm...maybe I should be concerned. Awful MS (of the all day variety) hit at 7dpo although I had other symptoms starting earlier. Got a positive at 9 dpo (previous pregnancies the earliest I ever got a positive were 12dpo and 14dpo). Started showing big time at 6 weeks. I'm not measuring ahead (as of my 11w appointment) but apparently that might not matter.

Guess I should up my protein and fluid intake just in case. Poor DH is threatening to run away to Mexico
