Hearing two heartbeats on Doppler 2 Girls And Now A Boy! 67 kids; St John's, 3051 posts

Just wondering if you were pregnant with twins, would you hear two heartbeats on the doppler at the same time, or would you hear just one beating in unison or would you have to locate the two heartbeats in two different locations? I am showing really fast and my uterus is much higher than normal for 12 weeks. I have my appointment next friday and was wondering this about the heartbeat!

Last time I was at L&D my nurse asked if I was having twins because she could hear two different heartbeats. I know I only have one in there. The heartbeat can be heard from the baby, the cord and the placenta and depending on the location of each in relation to each other can produce three different sounding heartbeats, when they're actually all the same.

Im guessing that you would be able to hear the mums heartbeat which is slower and then 2 faster heartbeats not beating at the same time. As the pregnancy progresses you would be able to pick up 2 heartbeats in different locations..

Not sure tho, but it makes sense to me. :)

sometimes the heart beats are in synch so you cant always here two.. but later in pregnancy doppelrs can pick up 2 different heart beats.
