So many sad stories about twins...
ivymae - I thought this pregnancy was a chemical when I started bleeding/spotting, and that has made it really hard to get attached. I carry large as well, and I get the same questions. Though, oddly, we've both had twins, too. I understand all too well the feeling that someone is missing. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. It must be hard to go through a loss while still being thankful and hopeful for the twin who survived. I know that the 10 days between the loss of Baby A and Baby B were a rollercoaster. Getting through the entire pregnancy must have been so difficult.
craft_media_hero - That's so sad that your family hasn't been supportive. Parenting twins would likely be a lot of work, especially in the newborn stage, but that doesn't mean that you didn't lose a baby and don't mourn for her. If you'd like to talk more about it, the Pregnancy and Birth Loss boards might be a good place to share your story. The ladies there are wonderful, supportive, and understanding. I hope you can find some peace and healing soon.
lbkw - I'd be a mess without the ultrasounds too. I tried to avoid them in my pregnancy with DS, just an initial scan to make sure he there and growing, then the anatomy scan. But with the twins I had a bunch. And now I've already had one at 5 weeks, with another scheduled on the 30th. I might be able to chill out after that, but we'll see!
DecemberSun - Yay for being sick! Or, well... You know what I mean.
AFM - My scan last week showed a 5 week sac, though no visible fetal pole or yolk sac. It's sooo early. I go back on the 30th for another scan, and we should be able to see a heartbeat. I hope. I've still had a lot of spotting, some very heavy, and I'm understandably nervous. But no cramping. And I still have sore boobs, hyper-sensitive nose, and exhaustion. And, this morning, I got a little gaggy walking into the kitchen and smelling the turkey stock cooking in the crock pot (we celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday). I'm trying to take what I can get!
