I am @Manada and my partner is @healz413. I am carrying our twins and we are 17w6d pregnant now. We just got back from our first meeting with the MFM/Twins specialist and what we've grasped from that visit is that we have, in a matter of days, gone from the "lowest risk for twin pregnancies" to the "very high risk" category.
We had an episode on Friday that featured a bleed and left us in L&D with a short (1.9cm), funnelling, and opening cervix. That was very scary, and I've been on bedrest ever since. Today we found out that I'm on bedrest for the foreseeable future, and we are in twice a week for at least the next month or so for cervix checks and scans.
Thankfully -- the cervix was closed and longer today, and the bleeding has stopped. The babies are looking great and we will have more info on them after our anatomy scan next week. And I'm thankful to be on home bedrest and have the support of my work who is quite happy to let me work from home for now. I am also thankful for our MFM, who is also THE twin doctor around here - and that he's taking this as serious as we feel about it.
So yeah. That's us. I'm still getting used to the bedrest idea, and figuring out the work piece -- but I'm so grateful to still be pregnant today after that scare last week.
