Follow up to my Out Patients visit :)

Just wanted to send along an update from my follow up appointment, about the spotting. I didn't have any yesterday or today. The tech did an ultrasound and showed me the baby, and we saw the little heart beat flickering. The Dr. said it looks like I'm 7 weeks, 5 days and he said it looks like it was a twin (sweet jesus...) pregnancy, but one of them didn't survive, and just dissolved or whatever, which would have been the spotting. So everything looks fine for now

Wow! I think you're like the 4th person in this group to have a vanishing twin. So sorry but super glad the other baby looks good!!!

I had what they thought was a vanishing twin also, at my 7w ultrasound. I never did have spotting, and they couldn't say for sure, so I guess I'll never know.

Congrats on seeing that heartbeat... don'tcha love it!!

Thanks for the hugs! I don't want to jinx the little bean I have now but we are both happy there is just one little kiddo in there... I know some are thrilled with twins but for us, lets just deal with the one baby at a time!

AMEN!! I've been much sicker with this pregnancy, earlier than I was with either of my other two, and my sisters keep telling me I'm going to have twins. I know for some people it's a dream come true, but I just don't think I have it in me to be a mommy to twins. I wouldn't be sad to find out one hadn't survived this early on, especially if it looked like the other one was doing well. Congrats on seeing that little heartbeat! That's such a comfort!

Glad you saw that heartbeat. . .I always feel so much better after that. Chances are everything will go perfectly fine from here on out!
