Worried...

I am scared and worried. It looks like Twin B's heart rate is not good, they say the normal range is 90-110 for 6 weeks and B's was only 75. B was measuring the same as A but A's heart rate was 125.

I can't get in to see my O.B. until January, I am freaking. I guess all I can do is wait until my next u/s. I guess I will be phoning my G.P. to see what's next. I hate waiting, I suck at it.

I am afraid of having 2 sets of twins but I can't even begin to imagine losing one. :(

Has anyone heard of good turn outs with such a low heartbeat please let me know.

Update

Still waiting to hear back. My family doc didn't get the u/s results yet. I am hoping she gets them tomorrow. She said the heart rate is low but she isn't commenting until she gets the u/s report. Waiting SUCKS... thank goodness you gals are out there!


Update #2

Heard from my dr. There isn't a lot of hope for Twin B. I am so scared. I go for another u/s on the 24th to find out for sure. If you are the praying sort please say a prayer for my little ones. I can't imagine losing one... I don't know how you girls keep going through the pain of losses. :(

I think Menita (Life's Jestbook)- link is on my blog, had a low heartbeat with her son (now 4 months old). If you look in her 12/05-1/06 archives, you might be able to find the actual numbers. Good luck- hang in there baby B.

I have no information on the heart rate thing but wanted you to know I am saying a prayer for you and the babes right now. {{hugs}}

(WTF is up with them not getting you in until Jan?! Did I read that right?)

Can understand both your joy and your apprehension and now this new fear after the ultrasound. I hope things are ok, thinking of you.

I can't offer any speculation on the heartbeats-- I'm not sure I can even figure out how they could accurately differentiate between the two. But I can say a prayer for you and the wee ones. Thinking of you.

I can't get in to see my OB until Jan but I am sure my family dr. will send me for another u/s. Thanks gals

I'm sorry you have to go through this. Good luck.

By the way, I forgot to congratulate you on your pregnancy. Wonderful news.

I don't know much about the heartbeat thing - but I just cannot believe they are leaving it so late for you to see somebody about it! The wait is terrible. Maybe try the public hospitals - you maybe able to get scans done for reassurance when you need it.

I am barracking for baby B! Hang in there!!

Soralis I'm so sorry you have this to deal with. From what you've said it does look like baby B is having a hard time, although the fact that he/she is the right size is encouraging. I'm afraid that the only thing you can do is wait, although january is a long time to wait. Perhaps your GP would recommend you see someone sooner?

Oh Soralis- I'm sorry you're dealing with this worry! I sure hope baby B hangs in there and is okay. I would definitely have the family Dr send you in for another u/s. I'm thinking of you and have you in my prayers.

Oh Soralis I am sorry. I hope Baby B pulls through. I know exactly how terrifying it is to think you may lose one. My doctor says that by 7 weeks they want to see the heartbeat at 120. Maybe your family doctor could arrange another ultrasound in a week or just over a week.

I understand that it is the OB that can't see you until January, will your clinic follow you for the first trimester? I know that is a long drive but it might be worth it to have some care during this worrysome time.

Soralis, I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you and Baby B. I hope all turns out ok. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for all of you.

Piper and I are thinking of you and your twins and your twins! I can't imagine the "scare" of having two sets of twins and even moreso, the worry of losing Baby B.

Take care of yourself and try not to worry (I know easier said than done).

I have no info on the heartrate question but I am sure all your friends in the blogospehere will be saying extra prayers for you and the power of prayer is great.

kisses and hugs.

Praying ...

Im also hoping you can get an ultrasound sooner than the 24th, to help ease the worrying!

I am praying for your little ones ... I did have this happen with Kian's pregnancy (we lost the twin at 9 weeks) and I think of his twin often ... I think it might have been a little girl.


You are in my prayers
