living with the unknown

Hi, Sorry you have to go through this stressful experience, still having to remain calm for your surviving twin. Did you have any invasive exam completed recently? Doctors are reluctant sometimes in recognizing that some losses are related to investigative genetic testing. Another possible factor (a...

books to read

Hi all, I am glad to read that the cervixes (plural?) are behaving well, fighting gravity and holding our treasures as they very well need. I cant' write much as I don't want to miss my "bathroom privileges" still maintained as long as my BP stays under control. Never imagined peeing sitting down as...

there you are!

Hi everyone! So we are all meeting at this new corner - thanks Esperanza! I am writing very short sentences as like Sony I feel numb...there is not much energy left in me for more than metabolizing proteins and waking short of breath to one more of too many bathroom breaks (why at night, Jenifferwit...

bed rest

Hi everyone, Well, they found a bit more of protein than the normal cuttoffs so here I am - in the hospital, on bedrest. They check the babies twice a day (1 and a half hour each time) and - I never believed that to be possible - I am exausted and not that interested if baby C makes a funny twist at...

the trap of joy

I have really enjoyed the "venting" thread and the responses it brought in. I come from a different country and from a different time. I come from a place where poverty kills 200 babies in each 1000 before they reach one year of age. And I do read about less than a century ago, when half women would...

almost there is not there yet

Hi Girls! I moved my office downstairs so the old room can be converted into the babies room - no Internet for quite a while...missed you all. We are no longer those frantic threaders, with lots of questions, hopes and fears. Now our babies are viable and we need to travel inwards to face the big ri...

hanging in there

Hi all, My internet collapsed when I moved my office downstairs (it is going to be the babies room). Now I had a chance to post-really miss you all! Stefanie, I read that fetuses sleep every 20 minutes or so...then they get up and running. Sometimes they get hiper with tons of sugar if we eat refine...

I am 50!

Hi girls! So good to have time and energy to check our thread and find you there! I am turning 50 today.

between now and the decision moment

Dear Babies galore, My heart goes to you and the father of your child. Many posts gave you important information. I'd just say: learn as much as you can, as fast as you can, about Down Syndrome - from specialists that are not pushing for an abortion or for having your child. You may want to visit yo...

journeys

Hi all, I am turning 50 today. The babies are ok, all of them and DH made me my favorite pancakes this morning. What else can I ask from Life?

risk of falling

Hi, Just sharing what a friend who has worked as an OBGY nurse for 20 years told me: falls are the most frequent cause of miscarriages in normal pregnancies. They are unpredictable but their consequences are not . I am learning how to accept help. It is a humbling experience. My friends came in yest...

Hi all, Nice to read you all telling how things are progressing well in spite of shortened cervixes, embarrassing constipations and worrisome anemias...
