I had a vanishing twin, but didn’t know about it until it was already too late. Best of luck for your twins!

They said the same thing about my first. Thank god I only had one I was so young. I think it’s more common than we know.

I found out on the weekend from my childbirth teacher that vanishing twins is more common than you think, but ‘back in the day’ before ultrasounds women would have no idea.

Hope everything goes well for you.

mrsbree:  I had this happen. at my first appointment they confirmed two. then I went in a few weeks later and it was only one. They said the other baby just gets absorbed in some way? I was 20 when I had my son so I don’t know that I could have handled twins then! Still it was rather baffling.

mrsbree:  My girlfriend had a vanishing twin. When her son was born he was perfectly fine. She later on did end up having a set of twins. Good luck!

mrsbree:  my other baby didn’t make it, but it was from chromosomal issues not the other twin. Don’t fret about it! Most of the time the other baby is fine.

I am almost 23 weeks pregnant and my dr thinks I had a vanishing twin. I had a dating ultrasound at 8 weeks and found out I have a bicornuate uterus and also the ultrasound technician said she thought there could be twins. I went in for another ultrasound 2 weeks later to see again and the tech then confirmed there was just one. I had some heavy bleeding around weeks 14 and 16 and the only explaination my dr had is maybe you miscarried the other baby? I will never know for sure, and maybe it is better this way because I would be heartbroken if I thought there was another baby that didn’t make it.
