Just a quick update from me. Didn't post it yesterday as I wanted Snuffles' brilliant news to be uninterrupted, but could do with getting it off my chest now.
So we had our 24 week scan yesterday, which was just a routine 2 weekly scan to check my girls are growing as they should. Anyway, for the first time yesterday they found something a bit amiss. There was a difference in the twins' amniotic fluid levels, with one being more than it should be. They were very calm about it and explained there could be a perfectly innocent explanation (apparently if they empty their bladder right before the scan that can make it look like there's too much fluid), but I feel really worried I have to go back on Wednesday for another scan, and see my consultant on Thursday, plus have a glucose tolerance test on Friday. She said that if there is a problem, it could be from gestational diabetes, exposure to parvovirus (slapped cheek), or worse case scenario the beginnings of twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Ever since we found out we were having twins we've had the worry of twin to twin transfusion syndrome playing on our minds, and it was such a horrible moment yesterday to hear it mentioned as a possibility I know rationally that it will most likely be ok and turn out to be nothing, but I just feel so scared for my little ones and so nervous to find out whether everything is ok. Sorry for the rant, and thanks to anyone who's kept reading this far!
Aw banana. I'm sure everything will be ok. It's hard not to worry. It makes it harder when it's something we can't control. I don't know if you remember when we had the apt and saw our little one's neck was tilted weird.. I was so worried. So I completely understand. But try to keep calm, if they didn't sound too worried about it then it probably isn't something bad.
