Well, we waited until we hit week 16 to start our blog as we have been through a lot of heartache and we are still not in the clear yet! I would like to thank all you bloggers out there as we have been following all of your blogs - to see how everyone's journey is going, to see all the beautiful babies born and to see who is at the same point as we are! We have not told our families yet so being a part of everyones blogs has helped us know that we are not alone is this process. We are planning a trip back to Canada next week and will be surprising my family with our news! My mother will be so excited ~ we did not want to tell them the news as my mother is dying to be a grandmother and we didn't want her to suffer through our heartache again.
In saying that, we might postpone telling them as our 16 week scan has us worried.
This is the scan that tightened our throats as a "small choroid plexus cyst seen" on Twin II and we are awaiting a detailed USG scan to be done. Dr. Shivani says usually this is of no significance but they will follow up. So we are awaiting this report and are hoping to hear that everything is fine.
Twin I - approx gestational age is 17 weeks 2 days
Twin II - approx gestational age is 17 weeks 1 day
The fetal head shows normal ventricular system. The fetal spine, limbs, cord insertion, 3 vessel cord, UB, stomach bubble show no obvious abnormality. Grow babies grow!!!
Fingers crossed all is good!
