Twins or bloodcloth


Iam new to this site. Just very worried. I have been to my doctor and he did an ultra sound at 4 weeks and 6 days. Said i could looks like twins but could be 1 baby and the other slight bleeding or bloodcloth.

Is there any one that has been in this situation and did you have twins or just one healthy baby.


Thought it was a miscarriage but turned out to be

I thought I should share my story as I have spent many an hour reading other peoples. I found out I was pregnant and was surprised to get a positive at 9 days past ovulation. When I got my blood test results I thought the hgc reading of 1200 was pretty high for 16po. But it wasn't until I starting spotting at 6 weeks that I had a scan and discovered 2 sacs. But only one had a baby with a good strong heartbeat, and the other larger sac only had a yolk sac. I was told it didn't look good and it might be a vanishing twin but to come back for another scan in a week. I was just happy it wasn't another miscarriage as I had been so sure it was.

So the next week I went for another scan. I was positive there would only be one baby, but I was wrong again, there was now a second baby with a good heartbeat. Twin A was 178bpm and twin B was 148bpm. But I was still spotting and everything I read made me think the chances of having a miscarriage was so much higher with twins.

With still more spotting I had another scan at 8 weeks and both babies were still fine. At 10 weeks another scan and again they were both looking great. Just after this scan the spotting stopped, but of course I didn't stop worrying. I had read somewhere that spotting is more common in twin pregnancies but it was exactly like how my previous miscarriage had started, so I kept expecting the worst.

Just this week I have had my NT scan to check for Down syndrome at 12 weeks. At last I can relax a bit and start to believe this is really happening. Both babies look gorgeous and they both have heartbeats of 170bpm. Their risks where 1 in 3744 of having Down sydndrome which is great news. Being 36 now I was a bit worried, but the genetic doctor said that risk was like that of a 15 year old girl... I like the sound of that! lol.

The doctor also said that although they think they may be fraternal twins they can only see one corpus luteum (where the egg comes out of) which usually means identical, but the second may be hiding somewhere. As both babies have there own sac and own placenta, but that can just mean the egg split very early on. I will just have to wait until the birth to find out.

So I'm hoping the coming months go a bit smoother than these first. I have had morning sickness and extreme fatigue. I'm so much more tired than I was with my DS, but then I am 5 years older now I suppose. I can't wait to find out the sex of the babies, of course I would love a girl, but I'm happy to take what I get given. I know I'm very lucky to be blessed with this miracle as it is.

Well good luck and baby dust to you all and I hope my story give some hope to others out there.


nagging suspicion

I have one wonderful son who is 16 months old, when I found out I was pregnant with him I just 'knew' immediatly I was having a boy. Family, friends and even my doctor said he was a 'girl', but i was stubborn and wouldnt even look at pink girly clothes. I didnt find out I was pregnant until I was 6wks 2days and to top it off from my previous history I was told I would be able to conceive naturally. I suffered minimal morning sickness, minimal mood swings and my appatite was rather normal except for food aversions or cravings. My son was a big nine pound 6 and a half ounces when born, he was too big to be born naturally so I had to have an emergency c section. I carried all out in front and very large, everyone thought it was twins or triplets, but I knew it wasnt.
I am now almost six weeks pregnant and since i discovered I was pregnant at three weeks pregnant, a week before my period was due, i have had a nagging suspicion I am carrying two babies. I have headaches, morning (or rather evening and afternoon) sickness and I am incredibly moody, and irritable. I am always so hungry even soon after a meal I am hungry. I was not like this with my son. My belly has popped out rather quick. I did experience a small amount of bleeding around the time I would have had my period had I not fallen pregnant but it has subsided, and my back has been very sore, my sciatic nerve which didnt play up during my first pregnancy until i was further along.
I may just be, being silly but I am certain in my heart its two, even though it wont bother me if I am wrong. I keep looking at twin baby accessories, twin prams, cots etc. Twins run in my side of the family, my mother had two sets (stillborns) and my aunt was pregnant with twins but lost one. I was told that twins in my family have not skipped generations.
I dreamt I was pregnant with this pregnancy, I dreamt I took a urine test I looked down on it and it was postive, I also dreamt I had twin babies when I met my partner. I know this all sounds weird and I am booking for a scan in the next couple of weeks, but I cannot shake the feeling that I am having two.
Has anyone else experienced this? Felt this way and been correct?


when dreams come true.

hey everybody. im 23 years old and i am 7 months pregnant with twins. both are girls. can wait to see my two precious princess. at first, we didnt really expect that we're gonna have twins because the ultrasound scan didnt show any signs that we're having twins. only one featus were shown, when i was 10weeks pregnant.
i experienced a very bad night sickness. i threw up all the food that i ate, even mineral water. also i had a very bad headache till i have to get a medical leaves once a week.
on 20 weeks pregnant i had a second ultrasound. like usual the doctor made a checkup on me and made a scan on my tummy. suddenly the doctor asked me if there are twins in family. i was a bit suprised with her question then i said in my siblings there are no twins. then she said oohh.. but you're having twins. i was shocked and speechless. i thought the doctor was lying. then she showed me the screen and there were two heads. i cried in joy. then the doctor called my husband and told the great news. he also became speechless but still got smile on his face. i know he really happy about it. because he'd been dreaming about twins quite frequent.
now im anxiously waiting for my big day, because twins mostly in high risk to premature deliver. i am hoping i will deliver them normally, not by c-section. they are my angels and i love them both.
