Hi All - I hope you don't mind me posting here. I am 6 weeks 5 days pregnant. I had a scan yesterday and found out it's twins!! One twin is measuring 6 weeks 6 days and the other the Dr said was approx half the size (so I am guessing it measures about a week behind???). The Dr said the smaller twin has a 50/50 chance of survival. Have any of you ladies experienced this? I am really worried - although delighted at the same time that I am pregnant! I am trying not to worry to much and to remain positive that skinny twin makes it. I have another scan on thursday but in the meantime does anyone have any experiences to share? Thanks for your help xxx
Hi, yes they are fraternal but I concieved by IVF so the embryos were both at the same stage when put back. Both have strong heartbeats I've read a few things online that the smaller twin can catch up but others say that they have lost the smaller twin. I guess I am just going to have to stay positive and hope that he gets the 50% to survive. Thanks xx
Personally thats what happened to my triplets, one sac was alot smaller than the other two and never fully devoloped hence why I am now having twins. I don't want to say this is definatly what happened but I wish I had been more prepared for it. But strong heartbeats are very good, it might just be that one is just smaller and will catch up.
