    Hi ��

    I'm 34 & found out last week that I was pregnant. It was a huge shock as I already have 7 children & had planned on no more. Anyway, I'd just kind of got my head around the idea & went for my first scan this morning...
    The scan today revealed 2 sacs, with one embryo measuring 5w6d & the other 6w. The sonographer couldn't say much more than that as you can imagine. Complete & utter shock for both myself & my partner.
    So, after getting over the shock I'm now panicking because when pregnant with my youngest DD, I was told she was a twin but the 2nd sac was empty - vanishing twin. I was very upset at the time but as I wasn't expecting 2, it helped rationalise it & move along more quickly.
    I want these babies very much, both my partner & I feel blessed this has happened to us again. However, I'm an anxious person & the sheer worry of vanishing twin happening again is just about crippling me.
    Has anyone ever been through a similar situation to this? Does anyone know the statistics of it happening twice?

    Thank you ❤️

    No idea I'm afraid but the whole trimester is scary enough without having two to worry about! Got my fingers crossed for you x
