Hi Erin, welcome to the board! I've seen you lurking quite a bit, wasn't sure if you were 'hiding' or if you were just someone stalking us September ladies :D.

Wow what a strange story but with a wonderful outcome! That is something I've always worried about, that they somehow miss a twin in there. So far I've had 2 ultrasounds, one around 9/10 weeks and another last Tuesday and they've both said only ONE baby, but I still always worry. Makes you wonder how they could miss something like that huh?

Did they confirm that they are twin girls? I only ask because I made our blinkies and if by chance it's one of each I can make another one to show you're having a boy and a girl :).

Please do jump in on all our topics. Alot of the time I lurk but I do try and post occasionally enough so that people at least remember who I am :lol:. I guess I should stop lurking so much and maybe post huh :D.

Hi and welcome! :wavehello:

So exciting to have another set of twins. I'm super jealous! I hope the rest of your pregnancy is less stressful than the last few weeks have been for you. How crazy is that to be told your numbers are off and then everything's normal and then, "you're having twins". :eek:

Anyway, glad you de-lurked!

Kristina when I had my US @ 12 wks we only saw 1 baby for the 1st 15 mins. Had the baby cooperated and the tech not made me go pee in hope the baby would shift poistions I might not have found out so early! There was really NO sign of baby #2 intially! Everytime I think about it I find it so amazing that my story is true, but it is! Heck the tech had even measured my ovaries and everything and only saw 1 baby! LOL

LOL yeah, I think I'd rather find out early and not later on, at least then I can have time for the shock to wear off some lol. It really is amazing though that babies hide so well in there that sometimes you have no idea they're there. I think right now if that happened to me I'd die lol!
