Vanishing Twin :(
27
Thu, 01-05-2012 - 4:46am

So I had my first appt today and I was SO nervous. This whole time I have been feeling very pregnant and even had a feel it was twins. I was right! But unfortunately it looks like one is a vanishing twin:( I'm at 6 weeks and we could very clearly see the egg sac and a heartbeat in one (Yay!) but in the other there was nothing just the sac. I know this is really common, and that I should just be happy that as of right now I have a viable pregnancy but I can't help but feel sad and like I could have done something to help both babies live. I also feel like my intituition was cruel to make me know we were having twins but then not actually have it be the case. I know ridiculous right? Anyway I am going to try not think of any of it anymore and just enjoy the next few weeks but I have to admit that I was a bit excited about the prospect of twins.

I can see how you would be saddened by this...any loss is sad, whether expected or a surprise. Letting yourself be upset and grieve the loss is totally normal. (((hugs))) Congrats that everything looks great otherwise!

ETA: I saw you updated - I have my fingers crossed that the second baby just implanted a bit later and you'll see the second HB at your next US. Good luck!

I'm so sorry that it seems like one twin isn't developing, but I'm happy that you got to see a nice strong heartbeat for the other!
