Loss Of A Twin Subchorionic Bleed

willsmom - March 25

Here's our update- We had another Dr.s appointment yesterday where we discussed the demise of one of our twins (after an ultrasound on Thursday). The Dr. said that the twin will be re-absorbed or it is possible that I will have another big bleed to expel. SInce my big bleed a week ago - I have just had dark, almost black blood. Very little on my pad but a fair amount when I wipe. He thinks that that is good sign. He also said to expect that it may take weeks/months to reabsorb. The Subchorionic bleed now measures 12cm but is still well below the good twin who is sitting high up in the uterus. Any thoughts from you wise women out there? My DH and I are so tring to stay positive that the remaining baby wil stay strong and make it! Thanks for any thoughts or advice. Btw, ee are 9 weeks, 3 days. Liz

Hi Liz, Last year I lost a twin during pregnancy, around week 10. I was particularly distraught b/c six months prior I had suffered a singleton miscarriage. I thought the twin pregnancy was a way of making up for the previous loss. But, it was not to be. The good news is that the surviving twin carried to term and she is beautiful and healthy and the joy of my life. I know how hard it is to be positive...you want to mourn your loss, but once the ultra sound pictures start coming in..get the 4D one... you will fall in love! I really hope and pray everything works out for you and your family. Good luck!

Liz, I finally got pregnant after 3 years and 3 IVF cycles. We saw two sacs on the very early ultrasounds, and heartbeats in both. But the second sac had a slow heartbeat, and the doctor wasn't real hopeful. I had pretty much your identical situation with the bleeding, starting at about 10 wks. We went in for an ultrasound every couple of weeks because of the bleeding, but the higher sac just kept doing great, while the second was gradually absorbed. We had a wonderful, healthy baby boy at 37 weeks: 7 lbs, 9 oz, who is now a delightful almost 2 year old with endless energy. Good luck, it seems like the doctors are right about 1 making it when the other doesn't.
