    Had my first scan today (6 weeks). It showed (the doctor thinks), 2 babies, one heartbeat (he said he couldn’t be sure the other image was a baby), an irregular shaped sac and cyst on right ovary. I think the 2 were in one sac but was so shocked I forgot to ask. Anyone had any similar experiences (although not holding my breath on this one). Have been told to wait 2 weeks til next scan to see what happens - nightmare

    Didn't want to R&R, but I've never had that happen before. Hope everything is fine, though!

    Not heard of this myself either. I'd say Dr Google but that normally brings up horror stories.
    I hope your next scan goes well, you could always phone the department and just ask to have a chat to clarify what happened. It is a bit of a load to take in.

    My aunt had twins and for multiple scans their heart beats were in sync seeming as one. Also, some twins do share the same placenta/sac. Its not completely uncommon. I hope everything goes well... definetly keep us updated!

    their heartbeats could well just be in sync esp if they are sharing a sac. or since their hearts wouldnt always start exactly the same time perhaps one has just started and the other yet to start?

    Twins in the same sack are referred to as 'mono amniotic twins' it's semi-common in identical twins.

    6 weeks is still on the early side for seeing a hb anyway (some do, some don't and it's not a cause for worry for those who don't). It wouldn't be unusual at all for one twin to have a hb already and the other to be a bit behind. Hope all is well for the remainder of your pregnancy :hugs:
