I started bleeding/spotting today around noon
I called my OB, but the u/s tech wasn't in today

They sent me to the ER to get an u/s
The tech there found 2 sacs, one empty, and one healthy bean, hb 163 bpm
She thinks the empty sac was a blighted twin, but wants me to follow up with my Doc for another u/s to monitor placenta attachment

This is nerve-wracking, but it was reassuring to see my little one.

Oh, wow, what a big chunk to hear all at one time! I am glad you still have one little bean in there, hopefully everything will be just fine with him/her. I'm sorry for the loss of your other one.

What a tough emotional day. I hope that you can grieve for the babe you lost and still feel the joy of the bean you will have in Sept. Much hugs to you mama

That is so hard, mamma! Thank goodness for the continued health of your bean. I am sorry you have to endure the emotions of hearing about the missing twin.

Umm, this happened to me with my second baby. For a while early on there were two different heartbeats, and then one day, only one heartbeat. And that was it. Just gone. I had opted for no ultrasound (I was even more crunchy anti-technology than I am now) but had I had one, goodness knows what I would have seen. It was a bit sad.

Sorry you had to go through that. We will rejoice with you when your singleton is born though!!
