Hi ladies....... really need some positive thought right now.
We went for our 19wk scan today and the smaller of our twins has spina bifida and lots of fluid on the brain.
The humane thing to do is let him/her go and be an angel but this will be at some risk to the other twin (small risk I think they said) and i will have to still carry it up until delivery day..... this is going to be so hard!!
My husband as I are devastated and are so so sad...... we've been in absolute tears on the phone telling family how the scan went.
We were so thrilled we were having twins, we conceived via IVF and that was a hard road but this news has shocked us and all my family are overseas (his are here thank god).
We're got squeezed in to a booking for tomorrow so another hospital in Sydney can do a scan and start planning the process, cause there's only 1 week or so window they can do it.
They will inject potassium into the heart to stop it beating and that will be it until delivery day
......... then a whole other roller coaster.
I'm scared, shocked and saddened..... has anyone else been through this or known anyone who has?
I need some friendly words.
