A 31-year-old female asked:

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. at this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

Chances are lower: Obviously twins are a higher risk for complications than a single gestation but with 2 very healthy heartbeats you certainly can breathe somewhat easier. Your OB will go over with you risks of twins at the various gestational ages but i would try to relax at this point.
