Hi! My Name is Sam, DH is Travis. We just got our BFP this last Sunday. Honestly, it feels surreal to me. I have been hoping, and planning, but now that it is here, I am happy, and pretty scared. I haven't told anyone except DH and my BFF and my JM friends.
I had a loss this last April due to TRAP Sequence. I was pg with twins, but one twin had a neural tube defect. The healthy twin and his brother were connected through their umbilical cords though. The healthy Twin's heart pumped blood for both babies, even though the other twin wasn't viable, so both twins kept growing. We were scheduled for prenatal surgery the week of April 29th to disconnect the cords, but we ended up losing both babies a couple days prior to that and we delivered Isaac and Avery on April 29th instead. I will always love my little ones.
Since we had a neural tube defect, we are now on high alert with our DR. We should be getting an u/s around 6-8 weeks, so I am very excited, and nervous about that.
I hope to get to know everyone here - You were all an inspiration to me while I was TTC.
Welcome Sam!!!! I am so sorry about your losses. I hope you jump right in and feel at home here. This is a great board with tons of support. All the feelings you have are normal. We have all been through/going through them. Here's to a happy and healthy 9 months.
Sam!! I was so excited when I saw this from you! WOOHOO!! I agree with Pamela, the more the merrier!! LOADS of healthy sticky dust to you!
Are you on a higher dose of folic acid at all? My best friend's sister has a son with spina bifida, so now all the of them are on high doses of folic acid while pregnant. Keryn, because she's had it happen before, and her sisters, because the tendency can be genetic.
so sorry about the loss of your twins, i am sure you will find this board to be so supportive. like Judy said, we all either feel or have felt the same way you are. it is a scary time time being pregnant after losses.
