    Hi, my story so far is that at my 20 week scan of my non id twins, one of them had developed hydrops (lots of fluid under the skin and around his organs). I was referred to a specialist hospital and they told me my baby was severely anamic and would die without a blood transfusion. He had it the next day and seems to be doing well 3 weeks later. It was caused by me contracting the parvovirus (slapped cheek syndrome). Has anyone had any experiences with this condition??? x

    No experience with it, but I am really glad your baby is doing better. Keep those babies baking a while longer.
