Thread: Pregnant with twins but.....

    Default Pregnant with twins but.....

    Hi Girls

    I have been spotting and had 2 little bits of bleeding in the last week. I had 2 u/s that showed baby A is growing and h/b is stronger and it showed baby B had not grown and there was not yolk sac so it is not going to progress. My specialist told me that the bleeding could be from the one trying to miscarry. She said that she has had women who have miscarried a twin and gone on to have a normal singleton pregnancy. She said there is also the chance that the one miscarrying could take the other one with it.



    Has anyone else experienced this??? good or bad experiences.

    Thanks

    Jade

    Jade i am so sorry to hear you are going through this.

    I was going to say the same Deejoy will be able to help you. She lost one twin early on and went on to have a healthy baby boy.

    My friend from work, his wife was pregnant with twins. At about 8weeks the second bub wasn't growing as strong.

    She got bleeding, but it didn't take the other baby with it. They now have a gorgeous 3month little girl.

    I am sure your other little fighter will stay fighting!!

    Jade, honey, so sorry to hear what you are experiencing right now :hugs: I hope desperately that other little miracle is a fighter (like his/her mumma) and holds on. Keep holding onto that hope, sweetie, and we'll be crossing everything for you.

    Jade,

    If I'm not mistaken, NZGirl (Amy) lost one twin early on and went on to have a baby boy. She's not around much anymore though, but I'm sure it was her.

    Hi Jade, I have a friend who this has happened to twice and she went on to have a healthy single twin both times.

    Good luck.

    jade,
    i am on another board and there have been a few ladies there who have started off with twins but lost one, usually around 8 weeks or so and the remaining baby is always well and healthy. I hope that everything is fine for your little baby.

    Hi Jade

    As the girls have mentioned this happened to me, my story goes like this:

    I fell pregnant end Oct 05 (planned pregnancy 5.5 months after #1 was born), I was still breastfeeding at the time, I thought my body was going haywire as I had O pains 8 days apart, first O pain was on my right side, second 8 days later on my left, I didn`t think anymore of it, I had my BT`s done but the levels seem to be quite low for how far along I was @ 5 weeks, 1 day, I had only very slight pregnancy symptoms but then a few days later the pregnancy symptoms I did have all vanished, at 5 weeks, 6 days I just felt something was wrong, I told DH that night how I was feeling and I don`t feel pregnant anymore, next day at 3pm my worst nightmare came true, I was 6 weeks pregnant and I started bleeding, bright red blood, enough to have to put a pad on, this continued so I rang my OB who wanted to see me at 6pm, in I trot knowing what he`d tell me.

    I had a vaginal u/s which reveiled no live baby and I had lots of blood clots around the sac, that u/s was just so awful, OB sent me off for BT`s to make sure my levels were declining for a natural miscarriage, I was told sorry there is no hope for this pregnancy , OB wanted to see me in 2 weeks time.

    So I get to what I should have been 7 weeks, 3 days and here I am thinking my body is absolutely crazy, I`m feeling pregnant again, feeling sick, sore BB`s, going to sleep in front of TV, DH smells like vomit or mice LOL Why is my body playing tricks on me, here I am still bleeding.

    I go back to the OB @ 8 weeks as requested, I was asked How am I? - I said I don`t know why but I`m feeling pregnant again but I`m still bleeding. Another vaginal u/s but this one showed 2 sacs, with 1 live baby in one of the sacs. Adrian`s sac wasn`t picked up at 6 weeks as he was actually only 4 weeks, 6 days as he was the second twin conceived.

    My little baby is now 12 weeks old and a very happy healthy boy, I`m very blessed to be given a second chance but each day I do think of my angel baby whom I lost, he/she was my baby and you do need to grieve over them, no matter what other people say (my MIL told me it wasn`t a baby).

    I have been told that one out of every five twin pregnancies end up like this - it`s called vanishing twin syndrome (personally I don`t like the term, seems so medical).

    I must admit, I never liked my u/s after this, I always thought there should have been two babies, please don`t think I`m greedy for thinking this way.

    Our babies are fighters and I often think what a true miracle my Adrian is, how lucky am I

    Hope I haven`t rattled on too long.

    How are you now Jade?

    Oh I meant to say my bleeding continued for 4 weeks and stopped on Christmas Day, my best Christmas present.

    Take Care

    Dee

    Thanks Girls for all your replies.

    It has been a very stressful couple of weeks. I had my last bleed on Monday night. Had a scan on Tuesday which showed one bubba measuring spot on and a h/b of 154 YAY!!!!! The other sac is still there but now there is no bubba there so hopefully that means that my bleeding and spotting will stop now. It's still mixed emotions but at least we still have one IYKWIM.
