  • ,,,(cont)...the dr said i did not lose the fact my level had double going form 27 to 57 in just a few days (like it was supposed to....i asked the dr what happened he said he doesnt know he has never seen anything like this and the i am a medical anomaly ( he told me this was not normal) i was crying and and laughed..i told him i have never been "normal" . i go to a hi8gh risk OB this week to see what id going on. what do you think could have happened? my mom and i can only think i was preg with two and missed one....i had an aunt do that and she carried the other twin to term. that twin is now 18 years old.
    sorry this is so long but it was a lot to explain..i am hopeful, scared , excited and intrigued all at once...what is you opinion? have you ever heard of this?

  • I think what you mom said, may have happened that you miscarried one of fraternal twins. The high-risk OB will likely be able to tell you for sure, based on your recent medical history. I hope all goes well with the rest of your pregnancy. :)

  • I second the twins theory. It's sad but relatively common for one twin to not be viable and your body gets rid of it while maintaining the healthy twin. The high risk OB should be able to confirm this for you. Good luck!
