First of all...thank you so much for you thoughts and notes...it has been a long 2.5 weeks waiting to see what is going on in there! LOL!

So the first thing the doctor said was "You have twins!"

OMG! We were so excited!

Twin A measures 7 weeks 1 day (we are 7 weeks 0 days) and 154 heartbeats per minute).
Twin B measures 6 weeks 4 days and the heartbeat was 68 beats.

The doctor said Twin B may flourish and 'take off' but he said more than likely it is a vanishing twin.

I am beyond happy that we have a strong healthy baby...but sad that this second little one may not make it....is it wrong to feel so conflicted? Has anyone ever  heard of a baby starting out a little 'slow' and suddenly starts to flourish? Just trying to stay hopeful I guess.

I know everything is always in God's hands...I just have to keep reminding myself HIS will WILL be done.

Ladies...thank you again for your thoughts and prayers...they mean more to me than anything! :-)

Lots of love,
Maria

I have waited so long for this post!  :)

I am so happy for you!  I do not have any experience with the vanishing twin, but I will say tons of prayers that your lil one florishes and catches up.  I will keep everything crossed!  Fingers, toes, arms, legs, eyes.... I really hope they catch up.  Do not feel quilty for any of your feelings!  You are just praying that both of your children are healthy, and thrive.  And it is perfectly normal to be so grateful that 1 is.  

When is your next scan???   I will be thinking of you and your 2 lil ones.  

Here's to hoping when you go for your next scan, there are 2 happy healthy lil ones!

Maria,

Congrats on your little ones, this is wonderful news. I'm with the other ladies and do not have any experience with vanishing twins but I pray that everything turns out well.  God has you and your little ones in the palm of his hands and will take care of you.  Stay strong and positive and all things will work out fine.  

xoxo

Maria Congratulations!!!
What wonderful news.  I too have not had any experience of a vanishing twin, however we will all be praying for you that this little one just steps up and to catch up with its beautiful sibling.
Sending you absolutely buckets of H&H baby dust.

During the first few weeks of this pregnancy I had thought about vanashing twin and how I'd feel about it. And what you are feeling is normal. When I thought about it I wouldve felt the same. Happy but sad at the same time. I will keep you in my prayers and hope the little one catches up!  Sending you big hugs!!

Maria!
This is excellent news!!! Let's hope that the second baby makes it and becomes a beautiful baby also. If it is not meant to happen it will not happen. As you said it is in God's hands now. It is so nice that you managed to see them both.

Sending you a big hug !!! When is your next ultrasound ?
