Both in our early 30's, ttc for nearly 2 yrs. During those two years I've had two early miscarriages one been twins. Any medical advise?
My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?
Not unheard of.: Most recent data suggest that many of us started our in utero lives with a co-twin that never survived to viability, or even detection by ultrasound. Losing a dichorionic twin and continuing the pregnancy with the survivor is actually a well-known outcome in multifetal pregnancies. The earlier the fetal loss the less severe the consequences to the survivor, because these insults are all/nothing. ...Read more
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?

I got prg with twins and on us we saw 2 sac but 1 heartbeat. Im bleeding slightly...no pain or cramp. Can it be the twin miscarrying? I must be 7 week
Yes: Bleeding in pregnancy can be a sign of a miscarriage but it can also be caused by other things. However, depending on how good the ultrasound equipment is, and how certain the gestational age, its not always possible to see a heartbeat at 7 weeks. Sometimes, it will be seen if you wait a week or two and and look again. Best wishes! ...Read more

Studies on prophylactic measures like bed rest, cervical cerclage, progesterone supplementation are also controversial. Consult a MFM doctor, specialist in twins. ...Read more
Does taking Clomid (clomiphene) or Clomiphene increase the risk of miscarriage, and the risk of having C-section if I have twins?
Clomid (clomiphene) complications: Clomid (clomiphene) increases the risk of multiple eggs during induced ovulation, and some of those eggs that get fertilized often have an abnormal genetic composition resulting sometimes resulting in "miscarriage". Any twin gestation can have breech presentation at labor with the need for C/S for safe delivery. However, Clomid (clomiphene) also can produce pregnancies in those who otherwise couldn't get pregnant. ...Read more
