Good news:

There is one baby perfectly one time, with a heart beat.

Bad news:

It was twins and the second twin stopped growing around 5.5, and is just a gestational sac. So a vanishing twin the DR said.


I'm happy and sad at the same time. My EDD was moved to 12/21. I go back in two weeks for another ultrasound. I asked if it was possible that the second twin would be there and healthy (the sac HAS grown because we didn't see it Tuesday at all) and he said not to get my hopes up.

Did they see the twin on your first u/s??? I know they saw the sac... so maybe that little one is just a slow little pokey mover... and it just took a little longer for him/her to get a hb!

No they didn't see it on Tuesday at all.

I thought that was hopeful since that meant is has to be growing, but he said since it didn't have a yolk sac...

It was a perfectly formed gestational sac though, not collapsing like it would be if it was being miscarried/reabsorbed yet.

I am so glad to hear there was a nice strong heartbeat, but I am so sorry to hear about the other twin what a bittersweet time...

Thanks guys. I'm still hoping it was just hiding and in two weeks we have two healthy babies, but at least there's one.

So happy you have a baby with a heartbeat in there!! As far as the twin goes, don't give up on it yet. This happened to my DH's cousin. There was a sac but no baby, then suddenly a week later, there was a baby with a strong hb just measuring a little behind the other baby.

I'm so happy that you got to see a hb and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the second baby will catch up and you'll get a nice surprise at your next u/s!!

YAY!! Congrats on one little beating heart! I'm sorry about the twin though. I personally have been through this too, and it was so hard, it still is. It was an early ultrasound again, and there were two sacs which were both empty; two weeks later we had a heartbeat in one and the other was still there but empty. Big its a tough thing to go through, you want to be happy you have one, but.... the loss of the other hurts so much too. My thoughts are with you, and I hope your case is different than mine and your little twinny is just a late bloomer!

Congrats on a strong heartbeat and I hope the other baby is just hiding from you. I hope the next 2 wks go by quickly for you and you see 2 babies.

I'm so sorry that you couldn't have gotten better news today. Thankfully you have one bean with a strong heartbeat.
