Well, I thought I had a UTI, but thats not the case.<br><br>
I have been cramping all weekend, like pretty bad menstrual cramps. This morning, I woke at 5, spotting bright red blood, then thru the morning it turned brown.<br><br>
My OB sent me to the perinatologist and it was confirmed that one twin stopped growing at 7w1d<br><br>
I am cramping miserably and the peri said most likely I won't pass clots, but in time the baby that stopped growing will shrink.<br><br>
I called and told the IM and she is of course, in shock and sad, but we are trying to focus on one healthy growing baby now.<br><br>
I'd appreciate any thoughts and prayers for us to get thru this tough time.<br><br>
*Update* I heard back from my regular OB and he wants to see me next Wed. for a followup. I'm hoping all is well as we are slated to leave to go back east to visit family next Friday.<br>
I'm still cramping and having some bleeding, but atleast its not constant now. I'm doubting my abilities here to carry children again, after what happened last time and now, although neither are anything I could've prevented. IM calls me everyday to check on my and to reassure me that I'm doing everything right AND that they really appreciate me.

I am very sorry that this has happened.<br>
My daughter was a twin. I never bled or anything, it was just reabsorbed, but stopped growing around week 7.<br><br>
I hope you have a very successful pregnancy from here on out!
