update on me

hello havent had internet for awhile... started having contractions weds... went to dr thurs they put me on bed rest till they saw me again... then went to ultrasound on friday... and my crazy story just gets more crazy so i go to this ultrasound i tell them my crazy story... and they are all like wow... thats crazy etc.. so we make a joke... went to the 1st ultrasound there was 1 baby went to the 2nd ultrasound there is 2 babies they better not find 3 this time.. joking around etc.. so we go in to start the ultrasound and the ladys face changes and she goes umm i see 3... so she goes and gets the dr and he looks and agrees with her so she says okay and starts measuring the babies.. she gets to the new baby and has trouble measuring it so she gets another tec in.. and she goes thats cuz there is only 2 babies and thats a shadow bc of all the fluid so dr comes in and agrees... so im like is there 2 or 3 babies.. and he explanes about the reflection-shadow... and he says its hard to tell bc of the fluid the only way to know for sure is a xray... so he leaves the ultrasound lady measures the other baby he comes back explanes that the girls are doing twin to twin transfusion and are sharing blood vessles and put alot of dr terms.. so my bf looks at him and says so basically one twin is killing the other?? dr agreed.. then he tells me that there is a laser treatment that they can cut the blood vessels that they offer in philly and Pittsburgh then he wanted to do a amino to remove some of the excess fluid so we did that.... so tomorrow afternoon i go to Pittsburgh for another ultrasound and to talk to a dr... so hopefully we find something out and figure out what we are all doing.. im tired of no one knowing and every one being so confused... i think i need to write a book and sell this crazy story to like tlc... lmao maybe tomorrow we will find out for sure how many babies are in there.. ill keep u updated

Ugh Erin what a mess! I hope that you get some answers tomorrow. From what I have read twin to twin transfusion can be very dangerous. I hope they can help you and your babies soon! Good luck tomorrow!

Oh my gosh, things have been very crazy for you. I agree with Erin, I've heard twin-to-twin transfusion is no good. I hope they are able to help you and figure out what's going on. Please kup.

Oh my goodness!!! :eek:

You certainly have been put through the ringer, haven't you? :bigarmhug: I know NOTHING about twin to twin transfusion, but it doesn't sound good, does it?. Sad

Hopefully they can give you some good news at your next appointment.

Everything sounds absolutely crazy! Honestly no offense but ur doc doesn't seem to give me much confidence that he knows what he is doing. I mean the whole reason you bring a doc in to verify an ultrasound is cause he's supposed to know. He says there are 3 then changes cause of another nurse...I'd by not to happy. I'm hoping for your sake that he is wrong again about them sharing blood. The good news I can give you is my fertility doctor sends his patients to the doc in Pittsburgh as well...it is supposed to be one of the best in the states so if there are options they can find them for you. Keeping you and your babies in my prayers.

with my dr i havent seen her since she sent me to go see the dr i went to go see on friday... which i was told was pretty good even looked him up on line and read things about him.. heard he was good.. i wasnt 2 happy.. even with just him himself.. not just the confusion... he did seem to know what he was talkin bout tho about the twin to twin thing... he told me it was hard to tell about how many were in there bc of all the fluid which ill agree there... but yet again i saw what the 1st tech saw... magee is a great hosp and they have great drs so im really hoping they figure something out its worth the car ride
