Vanishing Twin


WEll why is it this happens? does anyone have answers…


I am so sorry for your loss. It happens for the same reason singleton pregnancies are lost, usually the twin that doesn’t survive has a chromosomal abnormality. It has nothing to do with what you have or have not done. My RE considers it insurance in our case because we miscarry so often with just one baby. It is very common. Again, so very sorry.


I’m very sorry for your loss katnlon. I went through the same thing and it’s devastating. :frowning: I was told the same thing as Annathon, it’s most often a chromosomal problem that causes the embryo to stop growing. There’s nothing you could have done to prevent it. Big hugs to you. :grouphug:
