I was sent to the ER due to cramping/bleeding. We were sure I was having a m/c. But, I didn't. Both babies are doing fine. The problem is a fibroid tumor the size of a baseball. The bad in that is it does hurt. . .the good is apparently I get more u/s per my insurance company as a result.

So. . we are still having twins later this year! They are identical twins. . this last u/s showed that they have completely split into their own sacs, so the risk of losing one went down. Their heartbeats were good, as was their size.

Thank you again to all of you who helped with our decision making and assistance in what to do and not to.

Baby Dust!!!

Deb,

I'm sorry you are uncomfortable but thrilled that the twins are doing well!

How very exciting for you. I hope things calm down and you get to enjoy!

Take care of yourself!

So happy and excited to hear about your twins! The fibroid sounds nasty though. Is there anything that they can do about it? ~ Pat

No, doesn't seem to be anything they can do about it. From what I was told it was common for women in my age group to have fibroid tumors. . and when you are pg, the increase in hormones causes it to grow. It'll either break up on it's own. . .or will shrink back down after the babies are born. Meanwhile, it's just grin and bear it. It doesn't hurt so much as feel funny. . like I'm carrying a bowling ball in there. . especially if I stand for too long, or try to lay down. . it's uncomfortable. The doctor seemed confidant that it wouldn't effect my pregnancy, and that was the most important issue. . .I can live with discomfort for 7 more months. . afterall, I was planning on being uncomfortable carrying twins anyhow, yes? :o)
