Sorry if this isn’t in the right thread!
To cut a long story short I thought I miscarried 2 weeks ago and I did i just happened to be pregnant with twins which I didn’t know! Has anyone else had this happen to them and the other twin make it? And how long did you bleed after miscarrying one?

My niece had the exact same thing happen, her daughter is now 20!

I’m sorry for your loss and you need to grieve but there is no reason why the surviving twin won’t be a perfect bouncing baby.

Yes, it's very common. Early scans done at 6 weeks have shown that lot more pregnancies than we realise start out as twins. In most cases the twin is lost early on in the pregnancy and reabsorbed into the mother's body and she never knows. Happened to me too: the survivor is now 7 years old. I didn't have any bleeding ( it was at about 7 weeks) but I lost all my pregnancy symptoms especially morning sickness so I had an early scan which is how I found out.
