Twins Hiding During Ultrasound?
(Portage, Wisconsin, USA)
My sister-in-law is pregnant with twins. She had IUI done because she has fertility issues as well as her husband. 2 weeks ago she had her first ultrasound at 8 weeks along with the fertility specialist. They saw 2 sacs, 2 babies, 2 heartbeats. Today, she saw her regular OBGYN for the first time and he did another ultrasound. During the ultrasound he could only see 1 sac and 1 baby. He used the "wand" for the ultrasound, but didn't move it around or anything. My sister in law said that he just kept the "wand" in 1 place and that was it. How could it be possible for her to have an ultrasound 2 weeks ago and see 2 babies, 2 sacs, 2 heartbeats, and then today, only see 1 sac, 1 baby, 1 heartbeat? Could the doctor, by not moving the "wand" around, have missed the other sac? She is extremely worried, and stressing out over it. She goes back in on friday for another ultrasound, but is really really worried right now. Anyone ever have this happen to them?
