I have a scan in 90 minutes (stupid public holiday)
To be honest, I'm so emotionally desolate from losing the twin that I'm finding it hard to work out how I feel about the one that was alive on Friday. I know that sounds horrible but everything is just grief, there's really no way to be excited or hopeful about the other twin. If it's gone at least they will be together :'(
Oh god, I'm so sorry @octonaut! I didn't realise either. And here I am showing off my BFP. Sorry Hun.
Here's sending you every bestest wishes for your scan soon. I hope you do still have a remaining twin & he or she turns into the healthiest most amazing child ever! If they can get through that sort of start to life they can conquer anything.
If it's not amazing news for you then I send you all the warmth & hugs the internet can manage & be super kind to yourself. Xxx
Let us know how you go. Good luck!
It's ok @McBecks. You didn't know and I am genuinely happy for you. Your bfp was the only thing I've smiled about since Friday.
I've had my scan and the baby is growing and alive. The surgeon said that if the exposure to general anaesthetic and cutting out the tube was going to kill it, it would die within two weeks. So having a heartbeat today doesn't mean too much in the grand scheme.
octonaut I can't even imagine how devastating it must be to now just have to 'wait and see', you must feel completely numb. If eel so sad for you and have everything crossed that this baby is just a strong survivor.
