Anyone have advice?

At what I thought was my 7 week scan, showed twins, both with good heart rates, but one looked 8 weeks and 1 day, and the other 6 weeks and 4 days.

Doctors dont seem too positive, but Ive heard a few storys and ideas that give me some hope for the two

Only one Baby now. Baby B (the smaller one) stopped growing soon after that first scan at 7weeks.
Baby A is doing great, 18 weeks now, and its a boy. Phew, cos Ive already got 2 girls.
Baby Bs sac will come out with the placenta apparently. Now sign of a miscarrage, no spoting or cramps. Just no heart beat at next scan.

hey i also hada scan at 7 weeks and twin A was 34mm and twin B was 27.3mm

one is slightly bigger.

the radiographer said that this sometimes happends espcially with monochronic diamontic twins, ( identical twins) what type of twins are you carrying>?



this is beause they share placenta ,

Mine are a few days off from each other, different parts measuring different weights but the last measurement was 11oz total overall. When they are not Identical, it is totally normal.

I think its normal for them to not be the exact same..as for a 2 weeks difference..they may not have done that accurately? At 28 weeks my twins are weighing 2-14oz and 2-7oz..so they are a little off.
