So I had my first u/s sound today. It was a little scary. I ended up having 1 gestational sac with 2 yolk sacs, and 1 fetal pole. The fetal pole did show a flickering h/b. Although it was slow at 60 bpm. We were still able to hear it.
So the u/s tech had never seen 2 yolk sacs in 1 gestational sac before. So she called in my doctor. She confirmed, and said it is very rare to see this. So she tries to explain that maybe it is a vanishing twin, or the other baby might be hiding, or it might not be developed as far as the other. She said twins are slower are developing than singletons. B/c I was also worried that the other baby was only measuring at 6 weeks. So I have done some research, which I shoudlnt have done. And now I am more worried. Twins in the same gestational sac are called momo twins(there is a much longer, technical name). There are alot of complications, one main one being cord entaglement between the 2 babies. Has anyone else on here had or heard of any similar experiences. T & P would be greatly appreciated. I go back in next Wednesday for another u/s with a high risk OB. I am just hoping that the one baby will have grown and is fine. TIA ladies!!!
