Today I have been on an emotional roller coaster. Firstly, we had our 24 week appt and everything went great. The girls are getting so big and their mom is getting even bigger. They each weigh around a pound and a half and are growing rapidly right now. The last appt the babies were laying on top of one another like bunk beds but today one was breached and the other was lying vertical. So they are L shaped in my tummy :)
Sad to hear the news from a great friend of mine. She had her 5th miscarriage last week and just told me today. I am so sad for her. Especially since I am having twins and I feel bad contacting her because I dont want her to get upset. The last thing I want is for her to be hurt. She is my age, 25, and we have known each other since grade school. I cant imagine what is going through her mind right now. I have a slight idea because of my experiences with infertility but to lose 5 pregnancies I am speachless. She said her RE has told them they will need IVF if they ever plan to have children - which they dont have the thousands of dollars to do. I really really hope that they get a little miracle and are able to conceive on their own and can carry their peanut/peanuts to term. Please God if there is anything you can do for them, they are amazing people who deserve nothing but the best. Anyone else gone through a similar situation with a friend/family member and you felt helpless?
