In the husband's defence, identical twins are technically speaking, clones, as they are 100% genetically identical. So the fellow isn't entirely wrong: though the actual "cloning" part will have occurred when they were still an adorable bundle of undifferentiated stem cells :)

That happened to me once, except it was in public and I was arrested... I have a video of it on my YouTube channel of you want to check it out :) Cryvosh
How many ultrasounds did you have? My doc checks the heartbeat everytime I have a check up. If he did that, wouldn't he notice 2 heartbeats? (Judging by your username, you seem to be handling this rather unexpected surprise well :)
I have twins, and during my first ultra sound the doctor barely found the second baby. The ultrasound had been going on for about an hour and she had searched every inch of my stomach making sure everything looked ok. Then, at the last second she flicked across something and went OMG, there's two! And mine are fraternal and were in their own sacs and everything. With identical, they could have shared a placenta and been right on top of each other making it hard to distinguish both of them. I bet it is actually fairly common for doctors to miss!
