Still do not like posting pictures of my ugly self but I promised I would. I don't feel that big yet except when trying to get out of one couch that needs to be replaced.
The term is MO-MO babies and these are identical twins that split later, maybe as much as 8 days after conception. Any later and they could be conjoined twins, and we know ours are not Siamese by the ultrasounds. MO-Mo comes from the two words monochorionic-monoamniotic, one placenta - one sac.
I am the type of person that must know what I am up against. I admit that if they are true MO-MO's I am very scared for them. I read that they have a 60% survival rate. Honestly that is better than Possibles was so we might be just fine in the end. Getting there might be difficult. They will require lots of monitoring. I read one woman was put into the hospital for observation around week 23 and then they did a c-section at week 27. That is a long time for a healthy person to be in the hospital. We will do what we need for the babies for sure. I am taken back by what all this could mean.
J is ignoring it all until the doctor tells him to deal with it. I am not way. I must know all I can up front. He will keep me balanced. Thanks for all my friends that listened to me worry today and prayed with me and for me.
Let me just say that I know nothing more than I did at last week's update about our twins. I feel movement every now and then and look forward to feeling more of it. I can feel a cold coming on but it won't hurt any of us. I will do all I can for the twins with my diet and behavior and I will again practice my trust in God. Not easy for me but He loves me enough to continue to give me chances.
I am asking that our dear ones in Heaven will watch over these babies and help me to take care of them. Declan and David please pray for us and help us to keep these babies safe.
