That story gives me lots of hope! Thanks for sharing. I will have more information after my 0930 prenatal appointment with my Ob I absolutely adore! I am going to have to be monitored so closely sure I will end up with a perinatologists sad about not having him though .
The one issue that my nephews had after they were born was with their blood supply. I don't remember exactly how it worked, but it had something to do with one getting more of the supply than the other in utero. When they were born, one was anemic and needed blood transfusions. It will definitely be a high risk pregnancy, but I am believing that you will have two beautiful babies at the end of it all!
Angelina, HOW EXCITING!!!! Oh my goodness! Congratulations! They are going to be so cute growing up together. We are praying for your little ones through the next 8ish months!
Oh I just wanted to say too that sometimes they'll find a very thin membrane separating the two as you get further along. I hope that's what happens in your case...did they have separate yolk sacs?
My ob talked with the hospital Dr as soon as I left they do have separate sacs but share the same placenta. I just hope that he is right!! These babies only have 28 weeks to bake they will be delivered at 36 weeks, since having to worry about the risk of Twin to Twin transfusion. Our goal is 36 but praying to make it to 34 weeks!
What a great picture of your two little ones! I used to be an early intervention teacher and taught a set of twin boys who shared a placenta and sack. They did develop twin to twin transfusion syndrome and were delivered at 29 weeks but they did really great. They were both about 4lbs when they were born and the only reason I was brought on was for a mild speach delay, they were perfect health wise. And the only reason they had a mild speach delay was because they had 3 older sisters who did everything for them and they didn't need to talk!
