Well I've had a nasty past 48 hours. Basically after my triumphant 12 week scan on thurs, I broke the news to the world and within 7 hours of that I was spotting. I could't believe it. It was like a bad nightmare. I got up in the early morn Fri for my nightly 5th wee and there it was, pink staining on the t/p. I just stared in disbelief. This was followed at 8am with more red blood in the toilet after peeing. So we rushed to RE where we were given a scan and found both babies to be fine and well. No explanation as to what was causing the bleeding. I was relieved to see the babies were OK and that they had grown but I was SO damn scared. Christ, this wasn't meant to happen at 12 weeks. I was pretty low
Anyway, they sent me home and said to come back if the bleeding gets heavier and is accompanied with cramps. Not much bleeding onight but in the morning today it seemed to be slightly worse so I went to the hospital where my OB works. They did another scan, babies perfect, cervix long and closed but they found 2 small 'disruption clots' on the outer side of the twins' sacs which was causing the bleeding. The Doc didn't seem at all perturbed and said its very common appar? The clot will generally reabsorb and some will be omitted. Happy to report bleeding has slowed (no more than a 50c piece on a pad all day) but Doc said to expect more red and brown blood over the next few days. I have to stay put for 10 days and take it easy.
I'm glad we found the source of the bleeding and I'm not overly concerned now but I can tell you I was a complete mess. It's reassuring to see the our bubs on the screen and know they are OK.
Just getting back to Jayne, no we got 2 individual assessments of the twins. Both roughly the same. One of the twins is measuring one day beind and that affected the number slightly for D/Syn - 1 in 3980 (Twin A) and 1 in 3920 (Twin B). They both came back at 1 in 6000 something for Edward's and somethig else. They managed to get a really good look at both nasal bones, so I think that also helped with the diagnosis. I wouldn't worry about the stats being diff for each twin, as long as you're in the low risk area.
Better fly. Hopefully things will straighten out for me in the next few days
