We ended up in the ER last night…

6 May

Sometime after that last post I started having gushes of blood. The cramping wasn’t too bad, it was mostly only when I was up and moving around – but the blood was scaring me and some of it was bright red.

So, off to the ER we went. 4 hours and 2 tylenol later they told me that my cervix was closed and to go home and “wait and see”.

So, here I sit. On bed rest, again.

When I first woke up this morning I thought I felt a lot better, but after I got up and went to the rest room (no blood) I had a few HUGE cramps after laying back down. Worse than anything I’ve ever had before. That did it, I’m a wreck now.

I took some more tylenol and that seems to be helping – But I am so, SO scared that we are going to lose the other two only because my body might go into “cleanse” mode. I hate sitting here WILLING my body not to do dilate, not to cramp….

I’m a wreck. I don’t think I have ever cried so hard in my whole life.

I almost wish I hadn’t seen dancing baby – at least not until this whole thing blows over. I don’t know what I will do if I lose that one. I wish I could up load pictures, but for some reason since I moved it just makes my computer crash whenever I try. Dancing baby REALLY looks like a baby now, he/she is so beautiful – there are no words.

The other one who is still with us (the one with the higher heart rate) still looks like a gummi bear & is not moving around yet.

I am so scared that they are both measuring so far behind – I guess I’m just scared about EVERYTHING right now. I wish I could hide from my life until this was all over…the not knowing is killing me.

    Prayers, prayers, prayers.

    LaLa, I have a friend who TWICE started out with IVF twins and lost one along the way (both times), and she was SURE she was going to lose the other one, too (both times). She was tiny like you, too. Her symptoms (including the ER trips) sound exactly as you have described. Both of her pregnancies resulted in HEALTHLY baby boys (one is 23 months, the other is 6 weeks old).

    I share this only to show you that you are not alone, and goodness can STILL come forth from this, Sweetie.

    Deep breaths. Try to distract yourself — get the crappy t.v. shows on, eat, read People or US Weekly — minute by minute, hour by hour, okay?!

    Hi, I came over from Stirrup Queens. I am so, so very sorry about your loss, and the stress and panic you are going through right now. We lost one of our twins today too, and I feel very connected to the pain and worry you are going through. Please rest, and I will keep you in my prayers.

    Oh, LaLa. I wish my prayers would just magically come true right now and you would be protected from the pain and worry you’re going through right now. I’m willing those two little babies to stay strong and grow strong and for you to be granted some peace, some respite from the sadness and the unknown. All of us out here are holding your hope for you and you are in the thoughts and hearts of so many.

    I’m so sorry you have to go through this. A pregnancy should be happy, not filled with worry. Hang in there!!

    Sweetie, my heart is completely going out to you. You have absolutely been in my thoughts and prayers since all of this began. I pray, pray, pray that everything is just fine with the other two, and I am sure it is. You KNOW you are going to be a mother. Your grandmother even told you that. Just remember her words when she told you one would go and two would stay with you. I am a firm believer that those were not just fleeting words made up in your own mind because you did not even know when you heard them that you were pg with three babies. Find comfort in those words. Everything is going to be fine. All my love and many hugs.

    I am so sorry for your loss, hun. Huge hugs & a belly rub for those two babies sticking in there – tons of sticky dust to them!!!!!
    Stay strong and get your rest. Try not to worry (haha that’s like ignoring the pink elephant in the room!) and think positive thoughts about your babies. And Michelle’s comment gave me goosebumps – believe your grandma.

    I am pulling for you, dancing baby, and gummi bear. You must be in agony, having to just lie and wait. If I were anywhere nearby I would run over with some gossip mags and chick flicks! In the meantime, a big virtual hug with have to do.
    Hang in there, we’re all here for you.

    La la, try to meditate and to relax. Try to relax and it will be the best switch for the ‘cleansing mode’. I am praying for you and your babies and sending good vibes to your direction ~~~~~~~~ ((HUGS))
