Customer Question

I got an ultrasound a couple weeks ago, and the doctor said that I had one baby. Yet when I showed family/friends, they all said it looked like there were twins. Is it possible she missed one or is something else showing in the ultrasound? It was estimated I was about 7 weeks along when they gave me the vaginal ultrasound. To see a pic of the ultrasound you can view at I go in tomorrow for my next appointment but I am anxious to know what another doctor thinks.

I don't think an OB would miss twins.

It is very easy to have the doctor look again.

Why don't you do that?
