I agree that you should just have him out again, because there are changes. I do have to say that if you think she is that close to foaling it really would make me question your vet if he did in fact miss the fetus on palpation. They are HUGE at that point and even someone on their first time palpating shouldn't miss them. Basically you get in there and the baby says "HELLO!!!" If in doubt, as him to u/s- at this point (again assuming you think she is within weeks of foaling) there is pretty much no way to miss on a transabdominal. He should be able to sex the baby and everything by then- as the fetus is taking up about 30% of the abdomen.
