Are twins detectable by u/s at 4 weeks??

  1. We had an issue on a parenting board I frequent where a woman was impersonating someone else and stealing someone's baby pictures saying it was her own child.

    Anyways, she claimed she was 4 weeks pregnant with twins.. mind you she "supposeably" had a 2 month old as well. I would like to know can twins even be detected at 4 weeks?

    Thanks for any help.

    UMMM 4 weeks you need a vaginal u/ 4 weeks, you would be lucky to visualize a SAC even! (no heartbeat, placenta, or anything much else). The serum hsg levels need to be over 1500mg/dl (I believe), before anything is visible in the uterus at all. I find this account quite dubious...but then I am no "expert".

    Also, 4 weeks pregnant , meaning what? See, 4 weeks' gestation medically, is really only 2 weeks post-ovulation/ fertilization. I highly DOUBT anything is visible at that early stage, let, alone discernible enough to be determined to be a twin gestation. Hope this helps.

    Yes it does help! Thank you very much. This woman was lying, and stealing baby pictures from other's websites saying they were her babies.. she was banned from the website because the admin did some research and "she" was just a wacko!

    Thanks very much for the info
