Another twin mama intro -UPDATE

Postby kimney » Fri Jul 05, 2013 8:44 am

Hi Ladies - my name is Kim and just found out I am having fraternal twins a few days ago. My husband and I have a long battle of unexplained infertility for years and gave up on our dreams to have a family. I've been pregnant before but miscarried twice. We went through Clomid, IUI, IVF and nothing worked and no explanation to why since I respond very well to fertility drugs.

Since giving up a few yrs ago, I had my "OMG I am turning 40 moment" and said to my hubby, lets try once last time. Not sure why now but we are beyond thrilled and now doubly blessed with twins.

A side note - my mom is a fraternal twin and so are my husband's brothers. We have a great support group around us and both sets of grandparents are retired and just moved close by. I guess we just needed everything fall into place for our miracle(s) to happen. :D

Congratulations, that's wonderful!!! How exciting, I hope you have a HH9! welcome to the Multiples Board, lots of awesome ladies here - ask away, share away, vent away!

Also, no way to tell if they are fraternal unless you know the genders or have a DNA test at birth - Higher chance if you did IVF and transferred 2 eggies, but still - you never know, always could be identicals too ;)

Re: Another twin mama intro -UPDATE:(

Postby kimney » Thu Jul 18, 2013 10:30 am

I had my 9 week ultrasound and we lost a twin at 7 week 3 days. Our surviving twin is doing great with a heart rate of 183.

I am a little confused on how to feel right now. I am kind of emotionless. Part of me is relieved which I feel guilty about. I was really scared about all of the risks especially at 40 yrs old.

Good luck to all of you fabulous multiple mamas!

I just went through the exact same thing, Kimney. I had my 9w ultrasound Monday and found that one twin had stopped growing at 8w1d.

I was really worried about the risks with twins as well and felt guilty being a bit relieved. So I can totally relate. Of course I'm sad that I lost a baby, but it was what was meant to happen... that's how I'm looking at it. My surviving babe had a heartrate of 178 at 9w!

I'm sorry for your loss and completely understand all your feelings. Just wanted you to know you're not alone. :)

I too had this happen. At 7w two babies were found, but one was smaller with no hb, at my 9w u/s it was confirmed that the second baby had indeed stopped growing around 6w, but the second was doing perfect. I told ukcat about this, and I will tell you as well, since loosing the second, I have had no complications or bleeding, and I hope the same goes for you.

:hugs: I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of one of your babies. It is a weird emotional place to be in. I lost a triplet at 6w2d and it was definitely weird. Obviously I was sad that I lost a baby, but frankly I was also a little relieved. Triplets scared the crap out of me. Sometimes when I see families with triplets I get a little sad thinking of the brother or sister my girls would have had. But on the other hand, I did have complications with pre-e and my twins were premature. I hate to think how complex my pregnancy would have been if I had a 3rd baby.

I'm glad to hear everything's OK with the other baby.

When I lost the triplet, I didn't have any further complications. I didn't have any other bleeding or cramping. The triplet was just resorbed.

kimney - I am very sorry for your loss, and don't be upset with yourself - you can't help how you feel and it's not wrong. I am sure you would have done everything you could for 2 and will do all that you can for 1. HUGS mama!
