It looks like our little guy is almost officially out of the woods!!

While he is still smaller than his identical twin, his blood flow no longer stops between beats and doesn't backflow anymore...his fluid level is really low, but stable, and he is even more active than his brother! Last week we found out his dopplers (blood flow studies) were virtually normal, and this week we found out he's sllloooowly catching up to his brother in weight!

It's so nice to see our Maternal-Fetal specialist smiling and guardedly *optimisitc* for once (we've been through a lot with these guys). And they are almost certain that whatever happened with the boys' placenta, it's NOT Twin-to-Twin-Transfusion, and our smaller guy is outgrowing his IUGR.

They've given us a new 'goal date' of 34 weeks instead of 26!

I know that a highly medically supervised pregnancy is upsetting to some folks (it's been pretty upsetting to me during the process too), but...I'm so happy with our little ones' progress that I couldn't help but share.

And...we finally have names! Thomas for the bigger guy, Dylan for our little fighter! ;>

i am so glad you shared, it made my day! you should share....you need to feel your happiness and tell others about it!

No one in their right mind would criticize and judge you. The goal in every pregnancy should be a healthy mama and a healthy baby (babies for you!!) thats the real prize!

on the way is lots of love, light and good healthy vibes.

Hey, a highly medically supervised pregnancy is truly necessary sometimes. The ultimate goal for all wanted pregnancies is a safe, healthy child. Having the medical safety net is a good thing sometimes. Congrats on the good news!

Great news

I truely believe our babies pick us, ds was very sick as a newborn, and we felt he knew he was going to be sick, so he picked us as parents because we could provide the best care.

34 weeks will be here in no time, keep those babies safe.

Mom to ds 9 dd 7 : and dd 3/08 : if I can I go to

Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping for over-34 week-pregnancy!
