By now your doctor should have listened for the heartbeat. If there were twins in there she would be able to tell by the sound of the heartbeat. Now sometimes doctors may think they hear two heartbeats, but it's just one with an echo or just a quicker beat.
Your other issue ... I don't even know what that could be. I know sometimes I feel a little weird down there, but that's usually after I've been to the bathroom, or even if ... TMI alert ... we use a condom. But it never bothers me enough to where I think about it after a little while. I would just call the doctor's office and ask the nurse.
Good luck with your U/S ... you never know, it could be twins ... if so, GOOD LUCK!
