I had a growth check with the perinatologist today and the Dr. came back with some devistating news. Baby B isn't doing very well. She isn't getting enough blood through the umbilical cord - the Dr. said she attached too far away from the blood supply. She is measuring 22 weeks and baby a is measuring 25+ weeks and there is a 36% gap between their growth. Worst case senario is I will have to decide between having them both born as early as 27 weeks and hope they both will be ok or letting baby b go and hope that my body doesn't go into labor when she passes and baby a can go full term. I feel absolutly torn to a million pieces. Right now the Dr. is monitoring them every two weeks and recomending steroid shots. I am so scared and have a million questions with no answers. Has anyone else been through this? Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks.

I am so sorry to hear that terrible news!

I've never been through this, but I know that technology is just amazing these days, and would advise you to head over to the Preemie board to see how great 27weekers can do.

God bless you and your beautiful babies. I will be thinking of you and looking for updates.

I am so sorry you are going thru this. I am prayer for you and your babies!!

I have heard before of one twin being born, and then the other twin staying in the womb for several more weeks.....has your dr. mentioned if that is a possibility?

I have a hopeful update - my ob doesn't think baby b is as bad off as the other doctor did. there is a discrepency and it needs to be watched, but she should be ok for now. he is sending me for a second opinion to a doctor highly recommended by local moms that have needed him. I feel relieved and am looking forward to this next appointment. my little peanut is a fighter with a strong heart beat! for now i am resting on my left side as often as i can and extra protein has been recommended by other moms. i have asked about one being born first leaving the other one in to "bake" a little longer, but the doctor today didn't think that would be an option, but I will ask the neonatologist when we go for our second opinion.
