Topic : Pregnant with twins
Aiel - `10` `2012-01-12 19:49:02`  
Hello... I have two kids and now pregnant with twins.. I am 8 weeks pregnant. Went to see the heartbeat via ultrasound and only detected one and no trace of the second. The doctor said the second vanished. But I didn't bleed nothing, all went normal. Pls can any1 tell me and help me by giving me some hope.. Is there any possibility that it was hiding behind the other sac.. I am devastated and I feel that life stopped. Help me

Hi Aiel, my heart is bleeding for you. I had almost the same thing happen only I miscarried one twin at 14 weeks. My other baby progressed normally and is now a wonderful intelligent sensitive 23 yr old. It was a scary pregnancy for me, although textbook after that, but he hung in there. I had extra checkups and scans to reassure me as much as the doctors. He knows he was a twin and I constantly think of our missing baby, especially at special and family occasions. It was a confusing heartbreaking time mixed in with the joy and excitement because my heart knew something essential to my life was missing - that I should be growing two babies. Right up till he was born - despite all the scans and checkups and knowing it was impossible - I still clung to the hope that the experts were wrong and my precious baby was tucked away there defying everything. It was hard when my baby was born knowing there should be two babies not one. I rejoiced while I grieved. Not helped by the comments such as 'you've got one baby anyway' - like he was a consolation prize and all I should want. I DO understand. I DO get it! Please make sure you get help however you need it. Also there is a group who helped me a lot too called Twin Loss NZ. Very supportive for lost babies before and after birth. (There is something called Vanishing Twin syndrome which is more common than you would think.) Hang in there - love your remaining baby, but never forget your lost baby. He/she was and is yours eternally. HUGS xxxxx

Firstly Aiel welcome to Kidspot. We are a supportive bunch and everyone reading this will feel for you. I hope you have a good midwife. She should be able interpret the scan, let you know the chances and support you through this tough time. I would be ringing her for a good chat.
