Ultrasound at 5 Weeks with 2 Lines

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I had an Ultrasound today and I am 5 weeks and 4 days. They couldn't really see much but the tech said she saw 2 lines next to the yolk. They tested my blood and are testing it again in 2 days. Does this mean there is twins?? I'm going crazy and I don't go back for a week and a half.. Longest week of my life LOL

ANSWER

Hello, You were just too early to make any kind of judgment about this pregnancy. You have a gestational sac with a yolk sac. This is a good sign. I would not even think about twins with such a limited amount of information. Looks like you will just have to wait and see!!!!

With regards,
