Before the advent of ultrasound, a pregnant woman had no way of knowing with certainty how many fetuses she was carrying. Unexpected delivery of twins and higher order multiples was not uncom- mon. Ultrasound can help avoid these surprises be- cause one of its important roles is to determine whether a woman is carrying a singleton, twins, trip- lets or more. In Drs.
