The first glance of a twins ultrasound is amazing and ultimately the best way to confirm a twin pregnancy. Though some women have heightened pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness and tiredness which can indicate a multiple pregnancy.
An ultrasound will detect twins at about 6 weeks gestation. At this point they are very tiny, measuring about 3mm.

This scan of twins was done at 11 weeks. At an ultrasound they will label each twin, for example; Twin A and Twin B. Twin A is usually the leading twin (the twin to be delivered first).
A twin pregnancy is usually a big surprise with an ultrasound as reassurance that your little baby twins are really in there and healthy.
When pregnant with twins you will likely have more ultrasounds than with a single pregnancy, making sure everything’s well and on track with your twin babies.
You will also be able to hear their little hearts beat. You may even see them jumping around, while they have enough room to anyway.
I love this scan which was done at 19 weeks and 3 days gestation. A twins ultrasound beyond this point will be very hard to get both twins onto one image, they are getting much bigger now.
The best thing is you will most likely be able to see your twins more often and have more ultrasound images to add to your memory book.
You will really be able to see how your twins progress and at about the 18th – 20th you may be able to determine the sex of your twins.
You can even get 3d ultrasound scans which are amazing to see.
Some women wonder about the possibility of a hidden twin during their pregnancy scan. With today's technology the chance of this happening is extremely rear. This can happen with high order pregnancies like triplets or more but is still a very rear occurrence.
