Twins? Vanishing Twin? — The Bump

Twins? Vanishing Twin?

I had my first ultra sound was pretty terrible quality, and I'll be going for another one hopefully next week to get my due date figured out and see what's going on inside me.  

But regardless, we were able to see one healthy little baby/embryo/fetus...but we also saw another something that could be an empty sack....or could be a twin (maybe a vanishing twin??)

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.  Did you see 1 baby and a sack?  Did the second sack end up being another baby? or did it end up vanishing?

  • It Could Be Another Baby Developing A Little Slower Than The Other. My First U/s We Didn't See Anything And I Thought I Was About 8 Weeks Or Later But Apparently I Was Less And Then When I Went For Another u/s There Was Just Two Empty Sacs Now I'm 20wks 5 Days With Mo/Di Twins With Babies Growing 2 Days Apart! Good Luck!! Best Of Wishes!!
  • @kbuzz4321 thanks for the info!  I'm hoping to go in for a better ultra sound this week and get more answers.

  • I am a mother of 4 month old twins.  At my first u/s (around 6 weeks), we saw what my RE thought was possibly a third.  It was much smaller than the other two and when I went back the following week, it was completely gone.  I guess I'll never know whether or not it was truly a vanishing triplet.  Right now...I'm pretty damn thankful I just have two healthy babies.
