I am 8 weeks pg and had my first scan a few days ago. It turns out that we are expecting identical twins, but one is very small and is likely to be reabsorbed into my body. (I found this fascinating - I'd never heard of that before!)
Anyway, after doing some research, it seems that the prognosis isn't great for the stronger twin. Our twins are sharing a placenta and I'm wondering if that will complicate things. I know that vanishing twins happen all the time and the second one is usually fine for fraternal twins. But I was wondering if anyone has experienced a vanishing identical twin? What happened? I'd love to hear about both positive and negative outcomes - any information would be helpful for me at this point.
