Vanishing Twin

by Cassie
(Rancho Cucamonga, Ca)

We just found out that we are pregnant with Twins. We are in week 10 and so excited. This will be our 2nd and 3rd child. After hearing this news, we decided that we will not have more children. We are both young, but I keep reading about the vanishing twin and it worries me. What are my chances of this happening? Is there anything that we can do to prevent it from happening? I have already shared the news with everyone I students as well. I could not imagine what would happen if this didn't go through.

Vanishing twin worries
by: Melissa

I am 31 years old this is my first pregnancy, and it was determined at 61/2 weeks that I was pregnant with twins. I knew about vanishing twin syndrome prior to becoming pregnant. This article did nothing to ease my fears of losing one twin. I have to wait 2 more weeks for my next ultrasound. I guess there is nothing much you can do but wait and see.
