vanishing twin at 9 weeks

I had my 9th week U/S today. We were expecting fraternal twins, but no heartbeat was found on one of my twins. We tried 5 years straight with every technique. This is our 1st pregnancy.

Now, we are devastated and scared out of our minds that the surviving fetus won't make it either. There is no explanation as to why this happened, and there is no say the other fetus is going to be okay.

We are having another U/S next week. Now I know why Tom Cruise bought an U/S machine to use at home. We are grieving the loss, yet, we are blessed that one of our babies is still fighting to survive.


Finding out.....

God I was so happy and over the moon, and so was my partner, when we found out. We were excited, scared, nervous, worried - I never thought Iíd feel so many emotions! But now that it has sunk in and we are patiently waiting for our scan date, we are so excited, and we both feel more in love than ever!

My mum keeps telling me what a nice age I am to be pregnant (Iím 22). I was planning to come off the pill in June to start trying but came off in October. My partner is 34 and wants kids more than ever! I havenít had any morning sickness, just tiredness; I fall asleep about 8 o clock every night and still sleep all the way through with the exception of getting up for many wee's!!!

I am so happy; we are going to make everything perfect!

Good luck to everyone who is reading!



nervous but need to know

I think I might be pregnant. I'm 17 Ė well, I would be about 4 months in. My breasts are getting bigger, my belly is getting HUGE, and I'm getting nauseous every morning/afternoon.

The thing is I am on the pill and I don't take the placebo pills to have a period.

I took a home pregnancy test and it said negative, but my doctor thinks I may be pregnant too so she is doing some blood tests. I'm anxiously waiting on the results.


Excited, but cautious

My husband and I experienced a miscarriage in October of 06 and were devastated. We both took it very hard and it got worse as everyone we knew was getting pregnant.

Well we are now 4 weeks pregnant and although we, are VERY excited I am so nervous. I can't stop comparing every little pinch, cramp, and pull to the last time.

I am trying not to worry, but can't help it.



I have been looking forward to being pregnant for many years and here I am 6 weeks and 5 days. My problem is that "morning sickness" lasts all DAY! I have no appetite, I am always hungry and my sense of smell is through the roof.

I can't stand the smell of perfume or scented soaps or deodorant. And the funny thing is they all smell the same to me, like laundry detergent. Then there are the occasional cramps at night. I never expected pregnancy to be like this.

And don't let me forget raging hormones. I feel like I have constant PMS! I wouldn't trade it for the world I just wish I was warned.
