So, it was twins, but now it's only 1

Click here to enlarge

I had my ultrasound today, at a maternal-fetal medicine clinic.

I'm 12w3d. They found what they think is the remainder of a sac from a twin pregnancy Click here to enlarge Fraternal twins, separate sacs.

The remaining twin is fine Click here to enlarge. The heartbeat was 145 and the doctor (who was like a grey Colin Firth Click here to enlarge complete with accent but friendly Click here to enlarge) said that he's 90% certain it's a..............................












































girl. But he won't let us quote him on that, and said not to blame him if he's wrong, as it's so early in the pregnancy. But he explained how he determines sex, and it was fascinating.

If I went through twin absorption, it might explain my wretched nausea and weight loss. Right now there's a thin band that looks like a sac, right over the surviving twin's face, against the uterine wall. They want to monitor it, but think it's nothing that puts the pregnancy at high risk.

I didn't know either, Hedwig Click here to enlarge That is what's so shocking. This is the first I knew--seeing the empty sac on the ultrasound screen and being told at 2pm today. Click here to enlarge

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of the 2nd twin 47. Click here to enlarge

But I'm so glad to hear the little one currently residing is doing great. Click here to enlarge Someone on the babycenter boards also said their dr said he had a pretty good idea on gender and they're about as far along as you.

So if you've been really sick with a girl...and I was really sick with Emily..and I'm not so bad this time..maybe boy for me...Click here to enlarge

BTW, this is how he determined sex: http://www.baby2see.com/gender/study_ultrasound.html

The doctor said he's around 90-93% accurate. But this article explains how they use the angle of the tubercle (which becomes a clitoris in girls, penis in boys) to predict sex.

Damn, I'm reading up on vanished twin syndrome and it's FASCINATING. I refuse to see the movie The Unborn, though!
