Somehow my crazy email in box moved to the bottom (really old emails). I noticed that the emails were my announcing the fact that I was pregnant with twins, and then an email from someone in my local twins club in response to the following email I had sent out:
I am a new member, we are (were?) expecting twins due 1/4/05 after a lot of difficulties in getting pregnant. After my amnio at CPMC on 7/26 the sac of one twin ruptured and I've been leaking fluid since. I've been on complete bedrest and going a bit crazy. At an u/s this last tues one twin showed minimal fluid left. I am continuing to leak amnionic fluid which means most likely the sac is not healing. We are waiting until next tues (tomorrow) to check again.
The amnio was done with one needle stick. I was doing great before the amnio. Obviously we are having major regrets.
Does anyone have any similar stories or suggestions? At this point the prognosis isn't looking good.
pre term labor and infection are the fear for the healthy twin. I am only 18 weeks (19 weeks Wednesday) as of now and lungs are not developed yet, the sac ruptured at 17 weeks.
We found out via the u/s before the amnio that it is 2 girls.
Takes the wind out of me all over again just thinking about it.
And an email with my plane ticket to fly to tampa florida when we tried our last ditch effort to try to seal my amniotic sac (which didn't work obviously). (if you didn't know we tried to do an amniopatch, read the first post in my blog)
it was like looking at a snapshot in time.
How I wish I could roll back the clock to the day of my amnio....7/26/05.
