So I've dealt with TTTS with major fluid discordance since week 19 as well as PTL at 26 weeks when, this week, the fluid numbers were normal for the first time since week 19, TBTG! I've been having weekly US since week 19 and weekly NST, and BPP since week 27 since the risk of serious problems is so high and can happen so quickly. The "normal" fluid numbers were such a huge relief. Since week 21, the boys (who are identical) have been exactly the same in weight or...
SO Awesome, Julie!!! Congrats! She is B-E-Utiful! Can't wait for the full story...
Please give me your insight ladies... I am anti vax and have done as much of the web reading as I can wade through... Which books do y'all highly recommend? I'm specifically interesed in books that have the referneces to back up their contentions. Don't care how long it is.... Thanks!
I had/have weelky US but i am high risk and am being seen by a Peri weekly. I will be having a medically necessary CS in a couple of weeks
I know its not my pulse becasue the HBs I'm tracing are coming in at 120s for one baby 130-140s for the other baby and 130s for the "third" HB. My pulse is below 100 (more like 70s when I'm cheking the babes so I know its not mine (and I double check by feeling a pulse point to make sure what I'm hearing is not matching up to the pulse point which would mean it *is* me. I do know the placenta has its own pulse but my placenta is high right and kind of folds over the...
Hey mamas. I'm 31 weeks pregnant with mo/di boys. I get weekly US to check fluid levels and dopplers, etc. I have been monitoring heartbeats at home twice a day (not with a medical grade doppler, just one of those "listen to your baby's HB through headphones sort of thing that only picks up a HB if you are right on it) and yesterday the oddest thing happened... I could swear I heard THREE HBs! One low midline and "presenting" one high left and one mid right (my...
Congrats! Isn't it exciting? You have begun the most wonderful journey... That said, you should be referred for a level II US immediately - especially if the Dr. thinks they might be identical. The standard of care for idetical twins is deplorable and your dear little ones are at risk for TTTS (by some medical journals 20% of id twins are effected). It is very important a perinatologist confirms whether they are id or not and that you educate yourself for the sake of...
Checking in... I too am doing well (as are the littles). I am 30+5 right now and praying I have these puppies early (34 weeks would be the ehalthiest or so the medical lit says). Running into some problems with the Dr. b/c hospital proceedure is not to schedule a birth prior to 36 weeks unless distress is noted and I will not necessarily make it to the hospital (or 36 weeks for that matter) if we wait until then. I have to schedule as much as I hate it - I was au...
I'm with you in the acne boat unfortunately. It must be the extra testosterone bouncing around in my system from carrying twin boys, I think! I had B-E-autiful skin when I was pregnant with muy little girl, mild acne with my little boy, but NOTHIGN compared to this. My back is disgusting! I have NEVER had acne on my back before (or my breasts, or my stomach??? wha???)!!! Ak! So I'm feeling you mama!

Hey Mama... been there. I was on procardia for the first week after I left the hospital when I went in to PTL. You should ask your Dr. about going off of it. My specialist said it is effective at reducing actual PTL cx for the first 72 hours you are on...
