I went to the dr. last week because I was spoting at 6 weeks, the ordered bloodwork and an u/s, my blood work was high and the u/s showed two babies two seperate sacs and strong heartbeats they also noted I have fibroids. I went home happy because I hadnt miscarried and excited of the thought of twins! Well I seen the Dr. and he simply scared the heck out of me. He sad that there risky, the may not live, he needed more blood work, for me to a specialist so that he can determine if they are identical or not and if their identical its worse, he told me i can not work any longer, and on and on. . . has anyone ever been through this?

She went to the specialist and they are here now.. Healthy beautiful identical baby boys...She also had A LOT of bleeding... Heavy.... try to stay off your feet... I wish you the best of luck!!!! You are in my prayers!

Thanks alot! I am so glad I found this forum. I dont know why he acted in that way. I am 34 and will be 35 at birth. I had a miscarriage 1 yr ago. My cousin also just had twins and yes they are considered high risk and all but some things are just not to be taken out on content.

I am pregnant with twins, i see a high risk clinic for a multitiude of high risk factors and they weren't as dramatic as all that. If identical and sharing a sac and placenta then TTTS can be bad. But that is a lot of ifs. Sit back enjoy your pregnancy and start worrying about real twin issues like..... double baby stuff!! Yeah two of everything, MUIWAHAHA. We have an moms and expectant moms of multiples board, way down there somewhere. The ladies are great and very informative.

the risks are the risks but the odds still are in your favor to have healthy babies.

If the doctor starts to tell you stuff that you find upsetting alert him to the fact that he is upsetting you or scaring you. Doctors really need to take courses in sensitivity

Hi Stacie! Welcome to the HR board! Umm, I agree with Cindermella! You're doc is being a bit dramatic, and you should wait till you see the Specialist before you worry about all that; or ask him specifically why he's being so doom and gloom. Some Dr's just aren't prepared for anything outside of their comfort zone, I've experienced that myself. And they're NEVER wrong, heaven forbid! Good luck, hun! KUP!
