I recently had an ultrasound at 5.5 weeks during which the ultrasonographer told me that I am carrying a singleton, live fetus. However, when I got my ultrasound results back I looked at the ultrasound pictures and could see what looked like a second fetus within the same sac, what I was seeing was identical to what the ultrasonographer had pointed out to be my baby but it was quite a bit fainter and harder to see. I thought maybe I was imagining it but I asked a few friends and family for their opinions and each of them said they also could see it, so i'm wondering...What are the chances that the ultrasonographer was wrong about this baby being a singleton? My other reasons for suspecting multiple pregnancy are the fact that my HCG levels came back higher than they're supposed to be, This is my 4th pregnancy and I have a LOT worse morning sickness than ever before and I have gained 3 kilos within the first 6 weeks of pregnancy.

The fetal heartrate was measured and only one was seen, but then he was only looking for one...the heartrate was measured at 146bpm.

I guess i'm just after some opinions...could I be carrying twins? or am I just imagining things? What else could the 2nd spot be?

Thanks for your help...
