Losing a Twin

mjforney - December 7

I have not been on in a while, but I have an update.

I went in Wednesday morning for my regular OB appt with no worries, especially since my last week's appt went soooo well. My Dr. did an ultrasound and my twin A was swimming around like a wild little bambino....

Twin B was silent and curled up so peaceful with no heartbeat.

According to my Dr. my body will "absorb" my heavenly twin, although my risk increases for twin A I am really trying to stay positive.

When she asked me if I wanted to look at the baby I did, but now all I have in my mind is my image of my peaceful baby and I can't get her/him out of my mind. Please pray that my twin A makes it through. I have an ultrasound on Monday 12/10 and I am taking the rest of the week off of work...

Blessing to all...

I am so sorry. I will pray that all works out for you. You have made it so far-I can imagine how unexpected the loss was. I hope that you are hanging in there, and I will be thinking of you and the baby.

Michelle, I am so sorry about your loss. Stay positive, although I know it must be hard. Your baby will make it and be fine. You will be in my thoughts.

michelle -
I am so sorry and my thoughts are with you.

We lost one of our twins very early at 5 and a half weeks. It has helped me to think that our surviving baby will forever have an angel on its side.

We are all here for you. I know how hard it is but try to stay strong.

Good morning ladies.... I went to my ultrasound yesterday to check on twin A and see how he/she was progressing and I am so THANKFUL to say that the baby is at correct gestational age! AMAZING! My body is still carrying my precious little twin B and I am hoping to not expel him/her at this time since my risks will inrcrease if I do...

I want to THANK all of you for your wonderul messages and especially your kind thoughts and your working prayers! You are all such precious special people!

Thanks again!

Hi Michelle,
I am new to this forum. I read your story. How are you doing now. How is your Twin A is doing. How long you have been pregnant.

Would you mind sharing your story. I have also transferred two embryos on 4th Dec. The test came out to be positive.

But I am very scared to the problems related to twins. I am also petit size (5.2 and weigh 96 pound) so I think I might run into problem very easily. I don't have any child from before and I have been trying from 3 years so I am really concern. Sometimes I think I made wrong dicision of transferring two embryos.

Can anyone put any comment so that I will feel little energetic to deal with that situation.
