Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It's normal to not hear two distinct heartbeats on the doppler, but on an ultrasound they should be able to detect two heartbeats depending on the positions of the babies. Chances are you'll have another ultrasound soon if your doctor suspects you're carrying twins.
