My Identical Twins Ultrasound At 6.5 Weeks
(Queen Creek, AZ, USA)
Probably Identical Twins at 6.5 weeks
I got the shock of my life when we saw not one, but two beating hearts during our first ultrasound (7 weeks) of our "Surprise!" 5th pregnancy. She said, "Here's the sac.....Here's the heartbeat...." Then there was a long pause and she was moving the wand back and forth and back and forth. Then said, "And the other heartbeat...There are two babies in that sac!" I was floored. I saw the other heartbeat but I thought she was just looking at a different angle! I knew I had double ovulated that month due to them finding two corpus luteum cysts when I had an ultrasound around 4.5 weeks for pain. However, these babies appear to be in the same sac, which would make them identical and from the same egg, not two different ones.
The tech couldn't tell if there were two yolk sacs or just one and had a hard time getting a picture of them together because she said they are "right on top of each other". I am 3-4 days behind what I thought but the babies are measuring within 1 day of each other so that is good.
Since things are so ultra-tiny right now, we'll know more at my next ultrasound which will be at 10 weeks. I'll post my next pic then!
