I would bet a 100 dollars this is NOT TWINS!!!!!!!

First of all I had twins and the doctor was able to tell me that at 8 weeks not to mention I could CLEARLY SEE TWO BABIES HEAD, BODY, and ALL! Second of all yes you can have what's called Momo twins which are in ONE SAC!!!!! My twins are now 15 months old and are IDENTICAL DNA TWINS. They were in the SAME SAC and on One PLECENTA. But no this is DEFINATLY not twins......... Good Luck

Does baby have a chest cavity?
by: Anonymous

I am sure everything is fine with baby but it does only look like one. I am currently pregnant with twins and I found out at 8 weeks. The thing that caught my attention was the fact that in the ultrasound (gave you a crummy photo?) it looks like your baby is missing a chest cavity. Head, abdomen, legs thats all I see no arms or chest. Probably just a bad pic. Best of luck with baby.

This looks like one baby to me, though i can see why ppl say twins. but it is 1. plus the hospital or doctors would not miss a twin at 18 weeks.

I am an ultrasound tech and thats definitely one baby. 1 head and then abdomen. If you were having twins there would be no question at 18 weeks

About amniotic sacs
by: Anonymous

Not true on the amnion remark and it does look like two heads lol!! But if zygote splites late enough they will be monoamniotic and monochorionic. Apparently a little scary to carry but possible for both to be just fine!!! keep us posted!!!

Only one in there
by: Kalyn

More imporantly than trying to identify the parts of the baby's body is to look around the baby. If you have twins, each baby has their own amniotic sac that their cushioned within. If you look around the baby in the ultrasound photo, you see a black outline forming a bubble around the baby. That signals that there is only one amniotic sac there. Thus, only one baby. Trust me, if you were having twins, your Ultrasound Technician would have let you know. It'd be very clear by now.

by: ally

If you look at it you see a babys head way on the left on the right looks like a babys but and legs but does not look attached to the head but the pic is not that clear so who knows. Ultrasounds aren't always that clear

One head
by: Anonymous

From this pic alone, there is one head and a body. How could your friends think there are twins from this image? Twins are very clear on U/S. Hello??????

Just one
by: Anonymous

No: you're just having one baby. The circle on the left is the skull, and the circle on the right is the abdomen. You can see the legs on the right side of the abdomen.

If you look at the left, it's clearly a head, because you can see that white that represents the baby's skull; the one on the right doesn't have the white halo, so it's not another skull; it's the hips of your baby.

I think it is
by: Liz

If you really look at the other head you can see the neck/spine. So I'd say yes it's twins. Keep us update. Good luck!

I'm not a pro, but. . .

This does look funny to me, like it coould be two. But if so, why didn't the tech or dr. speak up? I'd call & ask to speak to one of them and just say you wondered since people keep asking. I know of a situation where the dad was the first to spot the "bonus baby," instead of the professionals, but the pros looked more closely & confirmed it!
