Re: Mono/Di Twins Growth Discordance (will update this as we go)

  • Thanks for the update @mrsyimster. Grow babies, grow!

    @alexxapplepiee Happy to hear from you! I've been thinking about you and your sweet boy.

  • Sorry you didn't like the partner much. Every day and every tenth of a pound counts! I'm sure the shots are helping a ton! Keep strong mama!

  • @direwolfmini we're doing pretty good. At the 27 week mark so officially in our 3rd trimester. They still have quite a few concerns for him but so far I'm keeping positive.

  • Thinking of you and your girls! Keeping cooking and growing, little ones! Just to give you a positive preemie story, one of my friends from my other BMB had her little girl at 26 weeks and today that little girl is a happy, perfectly healthy 5 year old.

  • thinking of you and sending lots of prayers. I hope those little girls stay in as long as they can but it sounds like you have a wonderful team of dr.s making sure that everything is done to take care of you and them! 

    i know it's hard but try not to be down on yourself. you're doing anything and everything you can for those girls and are already a wonderful mama  <3
    wintersongmrsyimster
  • I'm so glad that your doctors are keeping a close eye on you and your girls. The most important part is keeping all of you healthy. You are doing the best you can for you babies - you are not failing them. As @longliveregina said, after they are born, you will continue to give them what they need from milk to love. 

    As for how to make a hospital stay more enjoyable, I echo what was said above. Bring things that will keep you busy too. Like books/ebooks, knitting/crocheting/cross stitch, crosswords or other kinds of puzzle books. One of my favorites might be paint by numbers. You can find some really cute and not so cheesy ones on Amazon. Those will keep you entertained for hours! 

    Hang in there, mama! I'm praying for you and your family.
    wintersongmrsyimster
  • You (and your body) are doing everything right and it sounds like you're getting great care!  I'm glad you're being monitored closely.  I haven't been in a hospital for an extended stay so I don't have any advice, but just remember anything you wish you'd brought with you, someone can go get for you once you think of it!  The little ones are small now but getting bigger and stronger every day, thanks to you.  We are all thinking of the three of you!

  • I'm continuing to keep you three in my thoughts...keep hanging in there!!

  • You and your body are doing the opposite of failing them! You have grown those little ladies for amazing 26weeks! And you have gotten and continue to give them them the best medical care for making sure that they enter this world whenever they need to in order to make sure they are safe!  And you're not admitted yet: which means they are still safe and growing strong! At this point every day makes a world of difference - don't you dare be down on yourself one bit!

    If early is what it's meant to be, then you'll have the best Christmas gift you could ever imagine. You heart will not even begin to comprehend the love that will come into your world.

    Praying for all three of you beautiful ladies <3

  • just thought of something that might keep you busy, babbel and those kind of sites usually do a free trial and they can be pretty fun. Also Ancestry will give you a free trial for a couple of weeks and it's amazing what you can find on there. I've spent many hours researching on that site lol.

    Grow, babies! I wish you the best for your 34 week goal. If it helps you any, I did have a baby in the range your docs are anticipating (29 weeks, barely, and apparently growth restricted as a result of my pre-eclampsia/HELLP) who is now four and a half, brilliant, and doesn't have a problem in the world.
