Lost Baby A......
Wed, 07-25-2012 - 12:06pm

Bittersweet news for me......Baby A stopped growing and is in the process of reabsorbing. Baby B however has a heartbeat that is ticking away at 135 bpm. I will admit that I did shed a few tears on the ride home, but I am ever so grateful for my little bean that I still have growing inside of me and I know that God knows whats best for me and my family.

I have also been able to avoid morning sickness (knock on wood) and I have gained 2 lbs in 2 weeks....oh boy!!!

My blood pressure was normal today. 120/68, a first for me in a very long time. I see the high risk specialist on Friday. He will more than likely do another scan.

Thanks everyone. Dh and I discussed it last night and are coming to terms with this is Gods plan for us, not ours, and He knows better than us just how much we can handle (for instance I am working on my doctorate and Dh is working on opening his own business, it would have been extremely hard with twins). I also did some research and found that it is very common to have a vanishing twin, some people never even know that there were twins until delivery when a calcified sac is also delivered. Because I had ultrasounds early and every week, I knew about the twin.

Again, thanks so much for the prayers.

I am so sorry. My last pregnancy I was pregnant with twins, and when I went for my 12 week ultrasound, found out I lost baby a at 9 weeks 5 days. My little girl is now 15 months and doing great. I understand the emotions, the happiness your little bean is ok, but sad your other baby is gone. hugs.
