Miscarriage of one twin in early pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Miscarriage of one twin in early pregnancy


I had 2 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean>s last year (one at 5 weeks the other at 10 weeks...no one even knew I was pregnant) with this pregn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ncy now I was showing a little bit earlier than normal, I wasn't huge, but had a little bump early on. I just think it has to do with being pregnant before.
My doctor said since i'm about 12 wks disappearing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> risk is gone and now its just staying healthy and hoping there isnt a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>misc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rri<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ge</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> with one or both. Babies were already fighting and kicking eachother. Sibling rivalry starts early I suppose. I'm waiting to see if my employer will work with my new restrictions or if they will put me on LOa. Either way is fine. Well thanks again. Your boys are really adorable by the way. are they identical or fraternal?
I had a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>misc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rri<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ge</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> at 6 weeks in February. This was very difficult for me to cope with.... Then, just a couple an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> weeks ago, 2 weeks after my period, I found out that I was pregnant again. I went to the doctor to confirm my pregnancy (since it was so early), and they told me I was indeed pregnant. They checked my HcG levels, and then two days later, checked them again. The levels were 1529, then they were 2088.
Well i no that after a m/c, a hpt can be positive for as long as you have a level <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 25(<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the hcg hormone) in your body. It took a little over 4 weeks after my m/c for my levels to go to 5. after a m/c your hormones are all over the place and can still make you think you are preggo. Now as far as having a complete m/c and still having flutters i cant answer that one, i was 10 weeks and didnt feel any movement at that time. I no women who had twins and one died but disengrated within the body.
Can anyone shed any light on my dilemma pls? I am/ was just 6/7 weeks pregnant. Had early bleeding last week as I did when I was pregnant with my healthy daughter (so seemed normal this time round). Scan showed that fetus was ok but no heartbeat yet so to return in 2 weeks. Days later I have heavy bleeding, cramping &amp; lots an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> large blood clots. Gyno said I was having a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean> &amp; by saturday morning we were convinced that all had gone.
Happy Mommy- it is not uncommon for one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> to pass away in the womb in e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rly pregnancy and is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>ten termed Vanishing twin Syndrome. When that happens you can bleed but the baby's body is absorbed back into your body at this young age. If you were further along, close to term, you'd more than likely deliver early to prevent anything from happening to the other twin as your body cannot absorb the deceased baby. It's no comfort to hear any an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> this, I know. I'm so very sorry!
But last night’s ultrasound report seems to be replica an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> earlier report This time though the Ultrasound report,taken a tad earlier was not cleared enough. Though <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> gestation sac is visible,and one sac is empty, the presence <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> life in one <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the sac could not be traced. and the doctor has advised us to wait for 7 more days. and then redo the ultrasound before proceeding for any further action.
HOWEVER, my last period in nov was 2 weeks late, and very heavy and painful, i done 4 pregnancy tests and they all came back neggative! but i'm now wondering if i was in the e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rly stages <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> pregn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ncy in nov meaning it wasn't detected by home kits, and actually misscarried a baby. there are twins in both mine and my husbands families. any suggestions on what i should do?
a vaginal u/s shows better at this e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rly stage in pregn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ncy. I had my second one yesterday at 10 weeks and 3 days one baby is fine but other still hasn't vanished yet. The last time measuring 6 weeks and 4 days with no heartbeat and now measuring 7 weeks with still no heartbeat. How it grew a lil in 2 weeks with no heart beat baffels me but i know it didnt grow much so i have no high expectations for that one surviving.
Im concerned because i have had several children and never had this to occur. Is it possible there is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> and is it too e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rly to detect heartbeat?
i went to go pee this morning and i had a blood clot hanging out an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> me and when i took some toilet tissue and pulled it out, it was actually a big clump <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> tissue. i would love to hang on the theory that it might be the vanishing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> however, my levels were so low in the beginning that it probably is just what it seems...a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean>. i really wish i knew why my numbers increased by so much the 3rd and 4th time i took a blood test. how does one go from 60 to 208 to 600 to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean>??
On top <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> that, its important to see if you miscarried one or both twins (in a situation like this its assumed you would have MC both). It can take weeks after a MC before hormone levels return to normal so its possible to still feel pregnant for some time.
I've done a lot an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> research and what I found out is that it is very easy to get pregnant right after a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>misc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rri<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ge</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. If you did in fact have one when all this started have you been using any contraceptives? Usually its recommend to wait for two normal periods after a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean> before trying again so they say use some form an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> birth control to make sure your body has had plenty an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> time to heal. However, your situation seems really weird.
WEll one an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the twins misscarried half way through the pregn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ncy. The other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> injested (absorbed) a lot <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the fluid from the misscarried twin.now there was another genetic test done and it said that the live child was not his. and then it showed that it was not the other mens child either. Now the mother wants to do a DNa test to prove that my friend is the father and he is not sure if the test result will be accurate because an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the live child absorbing the other twins fluid.
I am also 7 weeks pregnant and for your advise I have talked to my OB and my Rheumatologist and they have both told me if my pain gets bad enough to take half <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> one <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> my pills just not to take the SIX a day that I was. Yes that is right six. I was taking two three times daily. So the next time you would like to pass judgement you might want to think that not everyone is blessed enough to have a body that acts exactly the way it should!
a week before the bleeding started I had been having weird dizzy spells, constipation, needing the toilet a lot more, breaking wind, sore breasts, headaches, tiredness and just the feeling an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> maybe being pregnant. Because I wasn't sure if it's my period come e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rly, implantation bleeding or a sign <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean>, I spoke to NHS Direct last night and was told to go to the hospital where they did a pregnancy test which was negative.
I had a sac that had split and was still partially joined in one corner. So this was an identical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> pregn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ncy. There were no embrios in the sacs, so this pregnancy was not at all viable. My first an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriagean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> twins started with brown bleeding at 5 weeks and went for a scan at 5 weeks 4 days and I only have one baby in one an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the sacs with a heartbeat an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> 109bpm. I went back for a scan 10 days later to find the 2nd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> my twins had also passed on.
Will the other be okay with the one who didn't make it still in there? It has really taken the excitement out <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> seeing our little one for the first time I feel bad for admitting.
So Im new to this forum, but have a question and hope someone can help. Im a proud mommy <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 4 year old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> boys. I found out in Oct I was preggo again and ended up miscarrying and having a DNC on the 12th an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> November. I had my first period on the 11th an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> Dec and just found out Im about 5 weeks preggo again. I have a lot an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> back ache and the doc said it's normal due to the uterus stretching. Just wondering if anyone has had this much discomfort early on.
a friend told me that she heard it is possible to miscarry a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span> but still be pregnant with one baby. I don't see how that is possible. Has anyone here heard <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>of</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> that? I still feee pregnant. If not, how long will it take for these symptoms to go away?

The Hi Risk apecialist has asked me to consider a selective reduction as I may deliver preterm (abt 20-28 weeks). I'm not able to decide.

It was the classic vanishing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>twin</span>.
