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'm so sorry hun! I am so glad at least one is doing ok though. You never know, maybe the other baby is just a few days younger and might surprise you. I ovulated Elaine's egg 2 days after Blake's (I was charting on FF and remember being so mad when I had thought I'd ovulated but the temp dropped and then rose again setting it back 2 days. Now I know it had dropped because I was ovulating again). So I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

I am so sorry Ash. I agree with Amy. I hope that somehow next time you go for an ultrasound you see the other baby's heart beat, that he just implanted later. If that is not the case I am glad that you have a healthy little one growing strong. ((((Big Hugs))))

Thanks ladies! I have to admit that I was very happy to see the two sacs and know that I wasn't crazy and I had been right about twins. There is still a small chance that the 2nd baby could have implanted later and I will find out at the next ultrasound in a week and a half. Right now I am just focusing on being thankful for one little bean with a heartbeat and a very cute son.:-)

Oh Ash what a day for you. I am so SO happy that one little bean is thriving, but so sorry about the twin that doesn't seem to be :( What a mix of emotions. How cool that you had a feeling it was twins, and that you were right!! Wow.

Thinking of you!

I'm so sorry Ash :( I don't think you are being ridiculous at all, especially having the intuition that there could be twins. (((HUGS)))

Wow Ash, I'm so sorry for you! Truly mixed emotions - I can't imagine what a roller coaster this must be for you. But so glad that one of them is doing great!

Ash, I'm sorry about the bad news. (hugs!) Like the other girls said, let's hope it's just a delayed implantation. If not, try to focus on the little bean that is growing strong!
