    Apparently it's quite common (if this helps - I'm so sorry for your loss and hope I'm not hurting) - I read an article a year ago or so that said there was a theory that any non-twin who is left handed probably WAS once a twin...

    I know a little about it, i hope this isnt too much information and hope you ok with it. Im trying not to be unsensitive but i cant really explain in any other way.

    Yeah its common, apparently 40% of twins pregnancy one is MC within the first 12 weeks, usually before you know your carrying twins.

    Its sad, but you should go on and carry your baby fine, so if you hadnt had that scan you wouldnt be any the wiser.

    Your body will completely reabsorb the baby, no there will be no sign of the twin at birth, the only way to know if to examine the placenta.

    Again I hope your ok, its a strange mix of emotions to deal with isnt it? Im having a problamatic twin pregnancy and a few time we thought we have lost one and its really difficult.

    Did they say that was def what it was?

    Sorry for your loss xxx
