I have previously had fraternal twins, is it likely that another could be seen on another scan in 2 1/2 weeks?

Hi I found out I was pregnant unexpecently, and I believe I am 6 1/2 weeks, an early u/s today showed 4 1/2 weeks and difficult to find. I am quiet certain of my dates and what does this mean? I have previously had fraternal twins, is it likely that another could be seen on another scan in 2 1/2 weeks? Nannette.

Answer: Hi Nannette, You may either be having twins or you may have conceived during a longer cycle so the pregnancy is less far along than you had expected. Try not to worry too much just yet and see what the next scan shows. However, there unless there are medical problems it is not recommended to have frequent scan in pregnancy. Best wishes, Alex
