Twin pregnancies can be detected as early as 6 weeks in some cases. However, if you would like to know for sure as well as hear the baby’s heartbeat, you can book a Viability Scan with us from 8 weeks, to:
Estimate the Gestational Age (GA) or the Estimated Due Date (EDD)
Confirm the baby’s heartbeat
Check for twin pregnancies
Verification of normal development of the pregnancy and the baby (embryo)
In the images below you can see:
Twins in a womb at about 8 weeks GA via a standard 2D transabdominal scan. Note that both embryos are about the size of a blueberry at this stage!
A transvaginal (TVS) 3D image of twins in the womb at about 9 weeks GA
A model we have at the clinic to demonstrate the development of twins in the womb at later stages in the pregnancy.
On our website, we have in-depth information about our process and types of scans, but if you do have any questions at all, please feel free to get in touch with us!
