To recap, I've been dealing with discordant amniotic fluid, dicordant growth, and stage I TTTS syndrome with the mo/di twins I'm carrying. I've been treating with modified bedrest and protein shaes 3x a day in an effort to keep from up-staging. Well, I had my second Level II yesterday to see how things looked and the fluid and growth discrepancies have totaly resolved themselves! I am much less stressed, but also cautiously optimistic as things can still change quickly in the opposite direction.
I have to continue with the protein drinks and the bed rest and be monitored frequently. Thank you all for your well wishes, thoughts and prayers!

Mama, that is so awesome! I've been thinking about you and hoping all was going well! Do they want to try to get you to term, or have they decided on a week to go in after the babies?

The general consensus is that I will probably only make it to 34 weeks based on this being a multiple birth and my previous pregnancies ended with natural, uncomplicated births at 37 and 38 weeks respectively. Its complicated a bit by the fact that I had a "precipitous" birth last time which means under 3 hours start to finish. I actually went from 3 weeks of cx 10 min apart to cx every 2 min to holding a babe in my arms in less than an hour and a half. This time, I am an hour from the hospital and it is possible I will need to consider a CS because of the TTTS. I cannot risk going into labor, either way, away from the hospital so it is likely they will admit me for a bit prior to 34 weeks and then do the CS - that way I will be there just in case I go into labor. Humph...SO many things to deal with! Thanks for the support mamas - y'all make it easier.

That will suck if you have to have a section. But, in my opinion, there are cases where "as long as mom and baby are healthy" is definitely true, and this seems like one of them.

34 weeks isn't far now. You'll make it mama!
