Hello =)

I had my ultrasound at 6 wk 6 day and Baby A's heart rate was 133
and Baby B was 128 , and Baby B also measured 2 days difference.

I had high risk pregnancies in the past because of preterm labor so I am scared of what is to come.

I keep reading about Vanishing Twin Syndrome.... and it worries me that I can be walking around not knowing if I have 2 left.

I am due Sept 9th..

Thanks

Jen

Hello! Congrats! I was soooooo worried about that after I found out. We found out at 9 weeks. We had our second ultrasound at 12.5 weeks and didn't tell anyone till 13 weeks because that was thanksgiving. When is you next u/s? Hope you give us an update!!

Hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy!

I heard it mostly happens at 9 weeks and under... ( Vanishing Twin)

Is that true?

Hi and welcome I can understand your fears, because I was worried about it also, and it did happen to one of the ladies in my DDC. All I can say is try not to stress too much about it. Stress isn't good for you or them.

We were too excited not to tell people, so we did tell my family and a few good friends as soon as we found out it was twins (we found at at 8 wks 3 days). My thought was that if I did lose one of them, those were the people I would want to understand why I was sad and to be my support.

I haven't read anything on when it is likely to happen (other than early in the pregnancy), so I am no help there. I will be praying yours are healthy though and I look forward to getting to know you!

Congrats! Our baby B also measured 2 days behind and I was sure he wasn't going to make it, but he did! We found out at 4 weeks, but waited until 8 to tell everyone we were having twins. Hope both of your babies continue to grow

Congrats! you sound like me with the PTL and HR pregnancy stuff. I am 11w4d pg with fraternal twins as well. I am wondering how this pregnancy will differ from my DD with all the complications I had with her. So, for both of us.. GOOD LUCK!

Good Luck to you also! I thought there would be no way I would ever have twins and here I am .. This is my 5th pregnancy and I have never gone past 36 weeks with any of my pregnancies. Earliest came at 33 weeks

So I have not been able to turn my mind off at night.. I just keep thinking & thinking ahhh
