Hello- I had a few people refer me to this thread- hopefully it is the right spot for me.
I am due July 21st with a boy. This pregnancy started out with twins and we lost Baby A around 13 weeks. Generally I am doing well and focusing on the positive- having a healthy baby boy! Yesterday I had a surprise cry at my ultrasound appointment when the Dr. showed me Baby A. I think she did it to try to make me feel better, but oops- it certainly stirred up emotions. She told me that Baby A is shrinking and will be absorbed in my body soon and will be "obliterated." I'm sure she didn't think of what that word would mean to me, but the whole thing was so sad. I had difficulty then going on with the rest of the ultrasound.
So here I am- experiencing a loss and a pregnancy all at once. The mix of emotions are so unusual...
So sorry mama. We lost DD1s identical twin at 31 weeks. It's a lot more common than people think. It was especially hard for me because I was grieving for my stillborn baby while DD1 was in a precarious situation in the NICU. Hope your other LO continues to do great!!
