Hi Ashaford, welcome! Yay for BFP! I lost my son at 15 weeks, so I know what you mean about an emotional road. It's like we no longer have that "I made it to 12 weeks I'm safe" kind of thing.
I am very curious what the drs will want to do, having had a second trimester loss.
I hope your bloodwork comes back perfectly
Finally have my appointment set up for the 17th! I pick up my paperwork today... I'm curious to find out what they will be doing different....the nurse said they already classified me as high risk, but I'm not sure what the Dr. will say.
Hi I'm not sure I completely fit in fall 2017 rainbows as expecting twins so if they make it will come early. But edd is 3rd Sept. This is my 5th pg with just one baby. My 2nd pg was also twins and we list them at 14+5 to twin to twin transfusion. These twins are possibly an even rarer type-identical and sharing a sac-which have the risk of twin to twin but also of cord entanglement. Have had 2 scans so far and they haven't been able to see a septum separating them. Scan next week should show for definite. Could mean a difference btwn cs at 32 weeks or 36. Tbh I feel I'm just carrying them to lose them. I can't imagine it working out. Even though I have identical twin nieces who were ok. Anyway am on progesterone and fragmin and under the Rmc consultant until my 12 week scan then appt with the twin consultant (same one as last time) at 15. No idea how to tell anyone this news when the time comes. Sorry this has turned into a bit of a ramble!! Congrats still praying and ashaford-I completely understand how 2nd trimester isn't a comfort. Mod19 am sorry for your loss-take care of yourself. Xx
Yes I remember. That was was my 3rd mc-heartbeat at 7+6 mmc at 11 weeks. We actually gave up after that but when my cousin announce her pg the following Spring we had one more try and got our rainbow! Counting down to our scan on Wed. Really hoping that they can see 2 separate sacs but not that positive that they will. Have started to show quite a bit. I think it's quite obvious but maybe folks at work are being polite!!
Glad you got your rainbow Lol that stage where you look prego but not obvious enough for people to feel comfortable enough to ask! My belly is already starting to pop out so I've been teasing dh that it's twin girls lol his worst nightmare.
Exciting you have a scan soon! Hopefully they can see both babies clearly
We hope so too! With our previous twins we could see the 2 sacs @8 weeks but it was a private scan so better equipment than nhs. We have our 12 week scan the following week so another chance to see it if not visible next week. On the first scan at 5+3 the babies were quite far apart so hoping that means separate sacs. Who knows! Nothing we can do about it now!!
Yes 2 sacs are safer. If they share a sac there's a huge chance they will get tangled up in each other's cords and cut off the supply. Possible hospitalisation from 24 weeks to monitor. So it would be great to see!
I had two mmcs in a row, then one successful pregnancy. When LO turned a year we stsrted to TTC again, after two months I had a chemical (january). It's been 4 weeks since that, my hcg level was down to 0, and Yesterday i got a faint bfp. I'm terrfied and don't wsnt to ger my hopes up, but I do have a better feeling about this one. Last time I didn't feel this way, I was full of doubt. We will see.
I'm happy to join this thread though, it's hard to find a group that wants to be hopeful, but is nervous. I just want this to work.
