Womb twin story: a real feeling of loss

My favorite childhood fantasy was finding out I had a twin. When I was pregnant I wanted badly to have twins, I am fascinated by everything about them. My mother thought she had miscarried me at around 12 weeks when she experienced cramping and bleeding. I am almost sure I once had a twin. I feel the loss of her every day. How that is possible when I was only a tiny embryo at the time, I don't know. I just know the feeling of loss and endless curiosity is real.

  1. I have felt exactly the same way all my life, too, that I was a twin and lost my sister around the third month. My mother has no knowledge of this, it is just something I have known since I was a small child. A tiny embryo is capable of remembering things, they are deeply imprinted on us. So if you feel this strongly, it is probably true.
