That is sad. I was a twin but my twin died in uetro. It was really hard for my mom because she was told that the drugs they gave to her to remove my twin would leave me disabled and I would most likely die too. She was so happy to have everything work out with me. You are lucky too to still have one, even though it must be so hard to have lost the other.

I know my whole life I grew up not knowing I was a twin but always missing her anyways. I would always call my best friends my twins and I would ask to dress the same. I had twin baby names for my future babies (My daughter Cailin had a twin name too, I would have called her twin Caleb if she has been a twin) When my mom told me I was like "Oh, of course"... You will have to decide when to tell your daughter. And when you do she will have feelings of guilt for being the one who lived. And grief. But they will pass with time. For now, just hold her close and have extra patience for her. She can't tell you how she is feeling. And dont be afraid to ask or the help you need too. It is ok to be sad even though you still have a baby, it doesnt mean you love your daughter any less. Hugs or you and your little girl, and happy almost birthday to her.
