TTC after 35

Bittersweet Update

We lost one baby. But saw two strong heart beats from the other two and they looked good in their wombs. :-) Dr said that because of injections I did it made lining thicker and this part of the source of the bleeding (and possible from the loss of the third but he couldn't be sure of that). RE said the bleeding I'll have to deal with for a while. Let's hope the two continue to thrive. I see my RE again on Monday. Thanks again for the well wishes.

Re: Bittersweet Update

  • Oh my gosh, that's wonderful and bittersweet.  I'm so happy that you have two little fighters in there!  And so sorry for the loss of the third. Hugs hugs.

  • I'm so sorry about the loss. But, I'm thrilled for you that the other two are doing well.  T&P's that they continue on that way.
  • I am so relieved that you are doing okay and have two very strong babies in there!
  • I'm so happy to hear the 2 heart beats are strong! As you said, the whole thing is bittersweet as I'm sure you are sad for the loss of the 3rd but looking at the glass as half full as you have 2 strong babies. Get some rest! I'm sure you didn't sleep well last night.

  • Bittersweet is definitely the word.  I have been thinking about you a lot all day and thrilled to hear that you have two healthy heart beats, but very sorry for your loss of the third.  Internet hugs don't quite cut it.

    I hope your pregnancy is textbook healthy from here through the delivery of two beautiful babies.

  • So sorry for your loss, but glad the twins are looking good.  T&Ps they continue to grow strong.
    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...

  • thanks for updating us. I was thinking of you. I am so sorry for the baby you lost. Sending lots of healthy vibes to your two other little beans!

  • I'm sorry Chicken, and I think I know a little how you feel --- at my first ultrasound I found that I'd started off with twins but that one didn't make it.  Bittersweet pretty much sums it up. 

    I bet the third will keep watch over the other two and make sure they grow up nice and strong! 

    Take care, and I'm glad to know that the other two little bairns are doing well!
