I Am a Wombtwin Survivor

I started life as a twin - but my twin died and I was born alone 60 People

    I have always felt something ( someone) was

    missing- when I was 16 my mom finally told me she miscarried my twin- she was between 6 and 7 months pregnant when she began to hemorrhage- this was not the first time for her to miscarry- though she only seemed to have suffered blood loss somewhere in there my twin disappeared...

    My story is very different from the others I

    have read here, but here goes... As a young child, I seemed to remember being in a place with another little girl and she climbed out of where we were and never came back. It was as if she just went through a wall. I remember having dreams about having had a sister when I was...

    I've really been missing him lately.

    And as it always goes, when you think about something, you start seeing it everywhere....so now everyone seems to be mentioning something twins-related, and I don't even know how to feel about that. I want to tell people about my brother, but what I can I tell them? All I have...

    I'm pretty sure I had a twin at some point.

    It's mainly like a gut instinct, like if someone was to tell me that I did have a twin, then I wouldn't be shocked or surprised. It's like something I've always known. When I was growing up (I'm 15 now), I was fascinated by twins. A few months ago, I was assigned a Bio project...

    Well, I can't remember

    when I was told that I had a twin. I can't even remember how I felt at that moment. All I know is that now, I get lonely quickly. Maybe it's because my parents and I moved away from living with such a big family to living with just the three of us that I feel like that. But I do...

    Did I Have A Twin?

    Ok, so here goes. This isn't easy to write about (but it's certainly easier to write than talk about it!) I don't know how to fully explain it, but I'm pretty sure I had a twin when in the womb. It's mainly like a gut instinct. One that i can't really pin down. But if someone was...

    Am I crazy? Am I the only one

    who feels this?? I lost my brother in the womb. I hadn't even met you yet... But it feels like a piece of me is broken...felt like I knew you a lifetime. But we weren't even born yet... I feel like I had a huge connection with you... Some nights I sit up and cry. Wishing that...

    I Am a Wombtwin Survivor

    I realised about 6 years ago that I am a wombtwin survivor - that is, that I had a twin when I was growing in the womb but he died.  I have spent my life yearning for something or someone who is just out of reach; I have a problem with food that I am sure  is related...

    Twin Sister

    I was supposed to be an identical twin. But just before I was born, when she was already at the hospital, my mother sensed that there was something wrong. The doctors had to do an emergency cesarian. When they opened her up, they saw that the ombilical cords were wrapped...

    Last year July I had to have an operation to

    have a 4cm dermoid cyst removed. This was what doctors thought was causing servers abdomen pain. Upon inspection they found endometriosis. I did some further research after surgery about the dermoid cyst and my family and I found out I should have been a twin but I'm what's...

    My Guardian Angel

    I found out from my mum. Apparently she had no idea she'd started out with twins and was only told once I was born. She doesn't like to talk about it much. But I know for certain that I am a wombtwin survivor. I don't think my mum knows what gender my twin was, but I sort of...

    My twin brother and I were

    both born dead. I was resuscitated, but he never survived. Growing up, my parents kept his memory alive, I even have his first name as my middle one, and often times I would want to see a picture of him. However, there were none, only a blurry photo of a small casket. I remember...

    No Solid Evidence, But...

    I've always had a kind of fascination with twins, not in the usual 'pornographic' sense, lol. But for some reason, it held a fascination for me. I gravitated towards twins. Even fictional twins. A sure fire way to get me interested in a book or movie is to include twins. Even...

    I don't believe I've told this story here

    before, but after scouring the internet for forums and boards I've decided this is the best place to share. My mother and father got married when they became pregnant with me, as I was unplanned-- except, it wasn't me they found. She had a miscarriage and went to the doctor...

    I Miss Him/her

    I am quite certain I am a wombtwin survivor. I've always felt alone as a child in my family, and felt like someone in the family was missing (especially when my fairly large family got ready to go somewhere and asked if everyone was ready). I've always had a suspicion that I...

    Not sure where to start,

    but I've always since I can remember thought I should be a twin. When I was a child I asked my mom if I was one - to which she said no. I would beg my parents for siblings, particularly an older brother, I don't know why but I felt sick and depressed since I was about 7 thinking...

    I Knew Before I Was Told

    I can remember when my parents casually told me I had been a twin but my mum had lost one - I wasn't surprised - I already knew and up until my teens I always felt my brother - just a feeling - was near me - Ashley. I would talk to him and just always feel him around me then at...

    A Sudden Epiphany

    I was 12 when I got a sudden and extremely real feeling that I had a twin sister before birth. This process was the culmination of many years, probably before the age of six, where I was getting strange feelings that I was inomplete, hollow, and generally missing somebody or...

    I have no proof, but

    when I think about it, I've always felt like I should've had a twin. (Interestingly, my younger half sister, whom I only got close to recently, told me that she always felt like she had an older sister and an older brother.) Recently, it got much stronger, and I can't stop...

    Not Sure.

    To start off, I'm not even sure I ever had a twin. Its just a continuous feeling of loss. It started a couple months ago. Before that, I was fine. I still believed that I had a twin that was alive, and I thought one day my twin would go to my school. But, I realized that...

    Long story short, my mom had an ectopic

    pregnancy when she was pregnant with me. I survived; my twin didn't. Even before I knew I had a twin I was obsessed with the idea of having one. The thing I've always wondered though is whether I had a brother or a sister. Everyone points out how there's no way to know...
