Back from 2nd/9 week ultrasound!

Mar 01, 2012 - 8 comments

Back from our second ultrasound...

As we suspected, our Twin B was a vanishing twin. The sac measured at 7 weeks 4 days and there was no fetal pole.

Twin A, though, is doing great! He is measuring even a little ahead at 9 weeks 2 days (we are 9 weeks 0 days). His heartbeat was 171.

Doctor says all looks great with this little one and we could not be happier!

To make things even better, I'm off the darn PIO shots and was prescribed the progesterone inserts. SO happy about that!

Thank you wonderful ladies for your prayers! All is as it should be and we are just so darn happy!

Hugs to you all!

Precious Maria,

I am both happy and sad for you, at the same time.  I am so sorry that your second twin apparently did not grow, but am so happy to see that most beautiful picture of your second growing baby.  What a beautiful and precious baby.  He/she looks fantastic and seems to be growing like a weed.  Such a strong heartbeat too.  171?  Wow.  A little girl, perhaps?  Just an old wives tale, but am still a believer in that wive's tale.

I have never ceased praying for you, your DH and your babies.  I am so glad that God has blessed you with such a  healthy baby.  I hope that you can rest a little bit now and not worry so much about your little one.  The picture of the baby looks SO good.

Although everything is going so well, I hope you don't mind if I still include your family in my prayers.  I am so anxious to follow you and your little one.  I have such a good feeling in my heart and soul for this little one.  It's a sixth sense maybe, but I really feel that this little one is a strong little baby.  I'm sending you a cyber hug and please give your hubby one too.  I am so happy for both of you, that your dreams are finally going to be realized.  You've waited a long time for this little one.  May the blessings of all of us here on MedHelp, continue to be with you.  You are cared for, much more than you may realize, Maria.

Warm thoughts and happy smiles....

Maria I am so very sorry to hear that Twin B is no longer with you.  But alas, you have a beautiful little baby in there just beaming! CONGRATS and may the next 30 odd weeks be nothing more than perfect!!

Thank you, beautiful ladies!

Of course, we were a little sad for Twin B, but we just have to be happy and rejoice that we have a healthy little one nonetheless.

Thank you for your prayers and all have lifted my spirits and encouraged me and I can't thank you enough!

God bless you and guide you through each of your journeys....I'm looking forward to sharing more as the months go by!

Hey Maria,
All this means is that you will have one amazing superstar instead of two. And there is always the option of creating a sibling later on. I think we are all hopeful for twins at our age, but the truth is I am also terrified at the idea of having two at the same time. Maybe you were gifted with one and not two because someone has concerns for your sanity, lol. Glad to hear your strong bean is charging ahead. XOXO
