So, I am about 24 weeks pregnant with mono-di twins (identical). We have ultrasounds every 2 weeks to watch for twin to twin transfusion syndrome. At the big anatomy scan they didn't see a brain structure in baby B. Then again 2 weeks later, still didn't. Got refered to the big University perinatologist and they couldn't see it either. We have an MRI set up at Children's hospital prenatal diagnosis department this Tuesday so that they can scan me and get a better imaging of the babies' brains. We also meet with a pediatric neurologist after the MRI. Hopefully after all this they will be able to tell us what we might expect for our new little pumpkins and even then, I'm sure a lot will be wait and see if they meet their milestones once they are here. From my research it could range from incidental and typical development to severe issues such as seizures, feeding/ speech concerns, learning delays and physical delays/disabilities.
I'm very much the sort that believes, "it is what it is," and go from there but after a few days of processing I am really feeling heartbroken and likely greiving what I assumed was going to be typical healthy twins added to our family. Probably doesn't help that my husband is gone for 4 days and mostly off the grid. So, is my sister for the weekend. Kind of just feeling alone since the people I would cry with are gone.
Just needing to vent a little...thanks for being here ladies.
