I just got back from my first u/s...it's twins!!! Baby A's heartbeat is 135 & is measuring at 7 weeks exactly. Baby B's heartbeat is 133 & is measuring at 6 weeks, 5 days. The Dr. said about 1/3 of the time, when there's twins at the 6 week u/s, there's only 1 baby by the 8 week u/s. I'm smack in the middle at 7 weeks. It's not exactly what my PAL brain needed to hear! I go back in 2 weeks for another u/s.

Congratulations Melanie!!!

I wouldn't worry too much about vanishing twins with your pg. When I had my twin pg. there were indications at the 6 week scan that one of the babies was not growing well. In fact, although they could see a second sac and fetal pole, baby had no hb. The fact that your babies are measuring so close and have healthy hb's at 7 weeks is VERY good news and reassuring!!

Double congrats on your two miracles!!!!

I cant believe the Dr said that. I guess its better to hear that but no one said that to me. I still had 2 @ 12wks! The h/bs were about the same as mine, I think mine were 135 & 136 @ 7wks.
Congrats! Thats so exciting! Now you can share the twin joys with me!!!

Oh congratulations Melanie! That is soooo awesome! I agree with the other posters, I think your OB shouldn't have told you that...especially since the babies are so close in growth with awesome HB's.

I'm so happy for you!

Wow! Congrats on your twinsies!! :) Our vanishing triplet stopped growing at 6.5 weeks, so you're already past that point. Sounds like the HRs are doing great though. Sticky sticky vibes!!
