Is It Possible To "Miss" A Twin At 5.5 Weeks?
by Misty McGrew
A close friend of mine had to go to the ER at 5.5 weeks pregnant, (though we thought it was more like 6.5) and they did an ultrasound due to bleeding and cramping. They only saw one sac, no heart beat, and they couldn't see anything resembling a "fetal pole" or fetus at all... but, her blood work said she was still pregnant. she had good HCG readings. :)
She went to her regular OB a week later, and she could not convince them to give her an ultrasound.
Everyone was so sure it was twins. Is it at all possible, that the first ultrasound was too early to detect two since it hardly detected one?
I just want to hear you other gals stories about it happening or not happening, to get a more realistic view of what may be going on.
Also, at what point did they decide to check again, and why?
Thank you in advance,
