Hi Ladies,

Today we went for our ultrasound. There was only one heart beating. The identicals had no heartbeats. The fraternal one was beating away.
Strangely enough I had a mix of emotions.Sad for how I had been feeling all along.And very guilty. But relief also. I want to thank all of you for your kind words. Now I am worried that something will happen to this one. I just can't believe this.

I started with triplets with Dayna (my 3 year old) and they reduced themselves to one naturally. Dayna is great but I must warn you I used to bleed an awful lot and also it skews your blood results, especially the neural tube defect one which in mine came back as 1 in 7 for spina bifida. I know you must be really upset. Big hugs.

I'm so very sorry. I know you have been really stressed with everything. I think it would be completely normal to have such a mix of emotions and feelings. I really hope the fraternal one will just keep beating away and your stress will calm down.

May your singleton be healthy and strong and you find joy in the rest of your pregnancy. I am glad for you that you were spared coming to a really unpleasant crossroads and a scary decision to ponder although can sure understand your mix of emotions since mine to twins had similarities.

I imagine there is some relief mixed with feelings of loss and sadness. All things considered equal, if there has to be a loss, it is safer for it to be early. Your singleton has an excellent chance. Hang in there.

when I lost the heartbeat of the 2nd, 6 weeks with first. They do dissolve but with me the sac continued to grow for a while and they were still very visible on ultrasound until 24 weeks. Just be warned that the 12 week blood tests will be totally out. I went to a fetal specialist and he told me that it was due to fetal demise and that an amnio was not required. It was a really hard time for me and I still think about the second one I lost, the first didn't ever grow much so it didn't worry me too much. However, I did another cycle after for a sibling and got twins, so the 3 came in their own way. Your third will be fine. Please try not to worry, I just wanted to pre warn you about the screening blood tests.
