hi mummkd its horrible isn't it the weekly scans and monitoring waiting for news, a week does feel like a lifetime! I have been trying to stay positive as much as I can and increased my protein intake as advised by others on here so at least I can feel that I am doing something to help. I have not been too good the last few days I have caught a bug that my daughter had last week that is going around (vomiting and diarrhoea) it couldn't have happened at a worse time, I have been constantly vomiting since sunday morning nothing is staying down at all. ive been to the drs this evening and he has prescribed me an anti sickness tablet as my urine was showing signs of me being dehydrated so hopefully I will be ale to eat something and keep some fluid down. I have been so worried that the poor babies must be starving! And upset feeling I have let them down by not providing them with what they need. I am due back at the hospital tomorrow for another scan so will find out more news as to whats happening with the twins. Wishing you all the best mummykd and hope that you receive some positive news. This waiting game is a nightmare! take care xx
aw you poor thing im sure they are still getting what they need thats why you feel so bad bless you, i have an appointment today too at 12.30 i hope its good news for you... i read my notes and spoke to a midwife friend and she explained that twin 2 had iugr because i have velamentous cord insertion this has made me feel even worse after googleing it as it means the cords not inserted properly and could rupture at anytime so will have some questions for the specialist today thats for sure part of me wishes they were just here altho they would be small and it would be hard work atleast i could see them and no they were ok... do you know what your having? im having two girls and im 28 weeks xxx
Hi mummkd, how did you get on at your appointment is everything ok? did you get all the information you wanted to know?
Yes I do know what im having its 2 boys and I am 30+4 weeks now.
At my appointment yesterday they just said no change or signs of distress so continue with monitoring, so hearts monitoring again tomorrow and Monday then back again Wednesday for another scan and to check their weights and review treatment the consultant said. When I asked him if they are still looking at delivering early he just said lets see what happens next week and take it from there, so more waiting but I suppose another week inside me is good news. Hope everything went well for you mummykd thinking of you x
hi, it went really well the blood flow seems to have improved before it was absent to reverse now its intermediately absent its still worrying but at least it was good and she has put on weight too Annabella is weighing 2lb9oz and Isabella is 1lb8oz specialist doesn't want to see me now for two weeks which is good to here but such a long time.
Bless you at least with all the monitoring you are reassured they are ok do you have any other children? i have 3 2 boys 6 and 4 and a girl who's 2.
Thinking of you too x
i'm made up for you that you got good news you must be so releaved! fingers an toes crossed that it continues to improve and you keep receiving positive news.
Yes I do have other children. I have got a daughter who is 11 and a son that is 9 so at least mine can sort off see to themselves, it must be very hard for you with the ages of your kids constantly seeing to them as well as all the worry of your pregnancy to deal with! will keep you posted as to what is happening with me and will be thinking of you take care x
um yes it is difficult but i have a very good husband and parents thats great that they will be able to help you my biggest worry is if mine are born early trying to split myself in so many directions and also recover from a csection :/ well keep me informed on how your appointments go ill be keeping everything crossed for you, we are so pleaed she is doing better its still worrying as there is still a restriction there but atleast it was positive this week ill take any positives right now and also i no ill get to 30 weeks now xx
Glad to hear all has gone well. Was gonna pop on Weds to check on you but my two are playing up this week as they are teething and needing attention all the time. Also hello to Mummykd, glad to hear your news too.
I told you Red it will get pushed back and pushed back they will want you to get to 32 weeks at least and if all signs are continually good they will prob push you to 34 like they did with me.
I remember watching "One Born Every Minute" when I was in early pregnancy with the twins, and saw triplets delivered by csec at 32 weeks. I remember thinking "oh my god they are so small!" In fact my little boy was smaller in weight at 34+4 than two of those triplets born at 32 weeks! Scary isn't it, but all he needed was a blast of oxygen when he was born and breathed on his own after that, the triplets were sent to SCBU on breathing apparatus, so just shows how the steroids had helped my boy and I believe all the positive thinking helped to make him a fighter
As always wishing you the best for a healthy happy pregnancy fingers, toes, everything crossed for both of you ladies xx
aw hi thank you so much for that its really reassuring hearing other peoples experiences i think i will get to 34 weeks maybe 36 but im just guessing i have another scan a week on wednesday with the specialist and another scan this wednesday but its a private one i cant wait two weeks it will kill me its just to long i need to see they are doing ok
How are things going with you? had a scan today and twin 1 is 3lb2oz and twin 2 is 1lb13oz twin 2 has put on 5oz in a week and twin 1 has put on 9oz it was a private scan so could see blood flow but its nice to see improvements got next scan next wednesday with specialist so will see whats happening and future plans hope alls well with u xxx
hiya glad you got some positive news and babies are growing well and there have been improvements, you must feel some relief!
At my scan today they have said the weights were twin 1 was 4 pound 1 and twin 2 was 2 pound 13. The professor said that they will continue with the ecgs Fridays and Mondays and then have another scan next Wednesday to review again. He said that if carries on putting on some weight and there are no additional concerns before then he will look at delivery before 36 weeks now (was told 32). which is good news, hopefully he will continue to be getting something from his faulty placenta and stay that few extra weeks with me. Fingers and toes crossed. So the way i'm thinking now is to be positive that I have about 4 weeks left until I meet my babies all being well.
