I have my own doppler.. my uterous is alsi measuring 6 weeks ahead .. i am the same size as my 25 week pregnant cousin and im 17 weeks.. we saw two babies at my 8 week ultra sound then only one at 11... So twins are being watch for.. has anyone else picked up two heartbeats? Ones on the left, the other is on the right with no heartbeat sounds in the center of my belly... I had already decided im having 1 not 2... Someone help me.. ive lost 5 babies to miscarriage and im afraid of having twins due two high risk.. has anyone have this happen and what was ur out come?

It could be your placenta!

Call the Dr and ask for a follow-up ultrasound! It's possible that you could be hearing the placenta or umbilical cord, or even your own HB, but you need the confirmation!

I agree, call your OB and tell him/her what you heard and ask for another ultrasound.

Could it be possible that the other baby was hiding during the 11 wk u/s?? Also could be your own HB you were pickin up maybe? I would def get another u/s to be sure againg.. Good luck to you
