Twins! — The Bump

Twins!

We went for our first ultrasound on 8/15 and found out that there are 2 babies in there!  Baby B is measuring a week behind where it should be (FHR 109), which is 3 days behind Baby A (FHR 124).  The doctor told us not to announce twins yet (he didn't seem hopeful).  Has anyone else experienced this and what was the outcome?

Re: Twins!

  • Congrats!!!  My twin girls have just turned 16 months.  We did 1 IVF and so we were visiting the doctor weekly for the 1st trimester.  
    Week #5 we saw the 1st sac and were over the moon
    Week #6 saw a second sac but was smaller but saw 2 heartbeats
    Week #7 baby A was measuring right on track and baby B was 10 days behind, we were told to say we were pregnant but not to mention twins since he was confident that baby b wouldn't make it

    As each week progressed both babies were still growing at their own rates and the doctor was amazed that baby b was continuing to grow.  Eventually they were measuring about 4 days apart.  Born at 33w 6 d at 4.8 oz and 3.13 oz.  

    Best of luck and stay positive!!! 
  • yes, the RE office told us that by around 10 weeks, if both still going strong, there was a good possibility of both continuing, in first trimester anything can happen, or in any trimesters for that matter, we had our first u/s at around 5 weeks, then every 2 weeks since then to monitor the growth of both, I'm going to be 11 weeks, and I still feel hesitant.

  • I am a little late but my son measured 12 days behind at the furthest.  We were counseled on the possibility of a vanishing twin but low and behold he started catching up around 14 weeks.
