I'm here with another random question as I work through my grief over my miscarriage(s). I was carrying twins and m/c one of them at 6.5 weeks. After many uneventful weeks passed I figured the rest of the pregnancy was in the clear and was so grateful to still be pg, and then I lost the other baby at 14 weeks. They implanted on opposite sides of my uterus so I'm assuming that they were fraternal twins, though I'll admit I know nothing of these things. I'm just guessing. As such though, why would I have lost them both?

I know I'll never truly know and nobody can tell me for sure, but does anybody know anything about twin miscarriage? I guess this is a rather vague question, but I'd appreciate any insight offered. Or perhaps I'm just torturing myself over something I'll never know...

I'm sorry. I have no personal experience with a twin m/c so can't offer you any answers but wanted to post anyway.

I think that may have been due to twin to twin transfusion syndrome. We speculate that the reason for the miscarriage was due to my blood clotting disorder and combined with the TTTT syndrome, they had a very slim chance of making it even if we knew about the blood clotting disorder beforehand.

I thought TTTT syndrome happened when the twins are identical and share a placenta? I am by no means an authority, but I thought that was why identicals with a shared placenta are considered "high risk".
