What is a vanishing twin?

Does it mean one of your babies died?


Answer by  anniekiefera (359)

Yes, sadly. In most cases both babies are detected very early on in the pregnancy. Then the next appointment the other baby is not detected. Usually the baby is reabsorbed into the mother or the twin that is still surviving. Vanishing twin syndrome generally happens with at least half of assisted pregnancies.

Yes. What happens is that you start out with two implanted embryos and one of them doesn't make it for some reason. The other fetus that is healthy takes over and eventually the signs of the fetus that didn't make it go away. You may experience some bleeding due to the loss.
