I was diagnosed.with ttts in early november. I.ended up being admitted and having two amnioreductions as i.was GIANT with fluid and.couldn't breathe and baby a had abnormal.doppler readings. After the second amnio, everything stabilized. No.more.bad dopplers, fluid improved on the olig baby and was slightly high.on poly baby. I attribute the stabilization to lots.of.rest and most importantly to.protein shakes. Early.on this pregnancy i.consulted with dr. DeLia, who.is a ttts expert and invented the laser surgery, and he advised the protein.shakes. they kept.me.here.in.the hospital.for.frequent.monitoring and rest. After three weeks nothing had changed and they were.considering.discharging me.....(apparently i surprised everyone by my.improvement/stabilization ; nobody expected.me.tk.get to 28weeks...i.showed them!)
The bpp that day (this past monday), we noticed that the separating membrane was gone (well, not gone, but broken.and no.longer keeping them.separate). My mono-di twins are.now.mono-mono, so i am 100%here.until delivery, which they tell me.will be @32w.due to.risk.of.cord.entanglement. 100%c-section. 3x daily monitoring+daily bpps.
That is 2 1/2 weeks away. At the mostnrecent growth scan, they were around 2 1/2 lbs each...about average.
Then same day they turned momo, i was diagnosed with gd. Immediately my menu was changed (my breakfast came and.it was a bowl of cereal and milk. Period. )i.raised holy hell and got it changed back so.i.can pick my own food again.
Here are my.points:
I.need.to grow.these babies. They will be preemies. Limiting my.food seems.counterproductive.
2. I have not been allowedany exercise in a month. My body is not used to not walking.
3.i do not eatv"meals".... .i graze all.day and.try and.focus.on.proteins. the.food.choices here.suck......i.do.not.wish.for.them.to.be.restricted further
4. I do not believe that overloading a body with an insane amount of glucose at 1 time is it true indicator of my body's ability to process the sugar that I eating, especially.considering.this.completely unnatural.environment i.am in.
5. The main.problem.with gd is.big babies and c sections. I want big babies. They are average.size now for.their age at 2 1/2 lbs. I.am.100% having a.section. the.other.problems they are trying.to.scsre.me.with arw.normal.problems.for.preemies anyway (respiratory/temp..regulation
6. I.would.ju just shut up and let them test my sugar after eating but it's all linked together in a computer and there would be no hiding from it. My grazing would show higher.#s and then they would want to intervene even more
which it is not I which it is not I think there is less than is less than 3 weeks left ho how much damage could be done in 3 weeks
