At 6 weeks pregnant we paid for a private scan to see what was going on. Matt kept joking that I was having a 'litter.' He was convinced there were 8 babies in there.
The consultant started the scan and immediately this appeared.
Oh my god! To say it was a shock is an understatement. The consultant was sure that they wouldn't all last and was also worried that the identical twins in one sac didn't have a membrane between them (monozygotic monoamniotic) - this was bad as once they grow they can tangle in each others umbilical cord. We were told that we wouldn't find out for sure until later.
