very Early U/S results- Vanishing twin?

Postby faith77 » Thu May 28, 2009 5:21 pm

My 3rd beta was scheduled for Friday morning, but I had an appointment scheduled with my doctor this morning to discuss some questions I have had.. anyway, of course the possibilty of twins was 1 of my questions (based of my beta #'s see below). She offerred to do an early u/s as long as DH and I understood that is very early and not to freak out, we may see nothing or we could see something; and even the something can change by next week, again b/c it's early. So, needless to say I wasn't going to pass on this so of we went to the exam room. She saw 2 sacs, 1 she said was a bit "irregular" she said it is too early too say if it will be a vaninshing twin or if it will look good @ my original U/S day next Thursday.
My question is has anyone had an early U/S that can weigh in on accuracy or if 2nd U/S stayed same or changed? Any related info is appreciated. Thanks!

Hello. This is the first time I have posted on this website since I lost my daughter Ashley in February. But, I wanted to reply to your message. I had a 2 embryo blastocysts transfer in October 2008. This was my first IVF attempt and I became pregnant with twins. I began to spot starting week 5 so my RE offered to do an early u/s. Sure enough it was vanishing twins. I bled for about 3 or 4 weeks and the surviving twin was doing well. To answer your question, yes the first u/s was correct as shown by my 6 week scan but it doesn't mean yours will be! We progressed onto our OB at 10 weeks and that is when everything went down hill. I ended up lossing her at our 20 week check-up to find out her sex. As a result, I had to deliver her and have a funeral instead of celebrating a birth.

But, I do hear that vanishing twins can turn out just fine for the surviving twin but it didn't in my case. I think I had very poor OB care and as a result I lost her. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
