10 Weeks Vanished Twin
My story is a little bit different...but it is for those of us out there looking for answers about our "twin belly" with only one surviving baby in utero.
I had a confirmed case of vanishing twin syndrome, and along the course of this pregnancy my belly has grown RAPIDLY!! So, what I have here is (now) a single pregnancy, with a uterus that has not gotten the memo...and believes it is still "growing for 2"...Thus, the "Twin Belly".
I've been assured that I'll balance out sometime in the 2nd trimester and that either my uterus, or baby will absorb the sac/remaining contents of said vanished twin. In the meantime, I've found comfort in seeing everyone's posts and belly pics here knowing that I'm not some freak of nature! And, my new doctor has been encouraging :)
...It's not all that unusual after all I suppose, and for the people who are shocked at my whale of a stomach when I state that I'm just this far along - and with just one, I gracefully wink & say "I AM growing a lumberjack ya know!"
