Hello Everyone,

I just first wanted to thank everyone for the all the prayers and support I have really relied on the kinds words from everyone. Sorry if I didn't reply to any this bleeding has put my head in a dark place and I am just having a hard time with it. I wish I could be a stronger person but I am afraid I easily scared.

How frustrating! I'm sorry you're still bleeding :( I would be worried sick too. And how weird that people can have full periods wihle being pregnant.

(HUGS) Carissa. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I know how scary it is and it's easy to let your mind wander into the what if's. What's helped me is not focusing on what could be and just focusing on what is and the positives. In your case, both of the babies are doing well and the doctors gave you a good explanation for the bleeding that they didn't seem overly concerned about. Focus on that! The fact that you're past the first trimester and the babies are thriving is awesome news.

Take care of yourself and keep us posted. If you need to talk you can email me privately too. I really do know what you're going through and it's tough, but if you just take it one day at a time, you'll make it!

I thought of the show too when I read your post, how terrible for you to have to go through this.

What a relief that everything is looking good and they are happily bouncing around in there.

Take care and lots of PT's coming your way.

Carissa, I am so sorry that youre going through this right now!

Any kind of bleeding during pregnancy is just so scary. Its so not fair, especially when you are a PAL.

I know there isnt much I can say or do to help ease your fears, but please know that I am thinking of you today!

Carrissa, I am so sorry you are still had issues with bleeding and cramping. I will pray that the end of that is in sight and that your twins still get to remain blissfully unaware and perfectly healthy.

I recall with Timmy how I bleed off an on well into the 3rd t. I was a basket case the whole time. I had a placenta previa that caused me to have a great deal of bleeding. I had had 3 losses before Anthony (Timmy is #2) and I remember meeting a woman at my Dr office due with in a week of me and with the exact same issues. We must have needed the appoinments the same day of the week because the whole 9 months we kept running into each other both at OB and Peri.
