Twins - any one else had the same issues?

Post by nes » Wed Nov 09, 2005 7:35 pm

Hi,just a quick question....

I had my first scan after my BFP, and they found two gestational sacs, both containing yoke sacs, but babies were too small to see at that point... But they said that one of the sacs was a lot smaller that the other, and would probably not develope.... ( I had to cuss the nurse, as she was so negative and moany that she just really upset me by trying to right off my babies so soon... was not impressed with her I have to say.... :evil: )

I then had the second scan on monday, and they found two sacs, with two babies, BOTH with strong heart beats! :D ( knew that there were two there and that they would show themselves when I had someone else scanning me!! ).

What the scan did show, was that even though two babies are present, the little one is still a lot smaller that the first, maybe just over half the size of the first.... has anyone else had this happen to them and still had two healthy babies, where the little one caught up with the bigger one?

Congratulations on your twins. What a horrible experience you had with that insensitive nurse. At times they only do it as a job they take it in that they are dealing with people.

Lets keep all the hope up for the smaller twin. Myself I havent had any experience with twins but just wanted to comfort you you.
