Thank you everyone for the encouraging words and the support. I need the help to get through this, i have no idea how to handle loosing someone. I have always ran back to my addiction and this time that is that last thing that i would ever want to do. My babies have given me a new light on life!!! I am so greatful them both. Quinton is doing good, we have had drops in oxygen due to pulmanary hypertension which was taken care with with nitros oxcide and he responded well. Today we found out that he has a tiny brain bleed, not enough to do any damage and his platelets are good so his clotting factor will do well. Also his blood pressure is good and he has taken well to the blood transfusion. Again thank you for your support. I will keep you all updated.

I too was a hospital bed rest mommy. I was sad and frustrated that i had to be in the hospital. It is scary and frustrating but you are strong and can do anything you want. You women are miracle workers. Keep your heads up and hang in there. It will get better! I send many hugs and lots of respect. I admire you all!!!

It is now tuesday, january 11, 2011 and i am posting to tell everyone that i went into labor yesterday. My contractions caused me to dialate and the cord prolapsed out of the vagina, i was rushed to the OR and delivered. I was put to sleep and woke a few hours later. Baby A was named Lance Mathew Summers, he was 2lbs 8oz and 15 and 1/4 inches long. Do to the early rupture of membranes his lungs were long able to grow to adequate size and he passed after 38 minutes of struggling to stay alive. May he RIP and will always be known for fighting so hard and saving his brothers life. Baby B was named Quinton Samuel Summers, he was 2lbs 9oz and 15 inches long. He is currently in the NICU and doing good. I will continue to keep everyone posted with updates as to how Quinton is doing. Thank you everyone for the encouragement and support. You are all amazing and strong women. Keep your heads up and continue to fight!!! you are amazing and can do this.
Sincerely Christina

HI everyone. My name is christina and i am now 25 weeks and 3 days. YEAH!!! that is an acomplishment considering i have been ruptured since i was 15 weeks. It is a miracle. So we are doing good, we had a scare thinkin that i had preclampsia but have not heard anything more about it. I have an ear infection, i think that is the worst that i am going through right now. lol I am hanging in with the bed rest thing, my online classes start next week so that will help alot. I am also struggling with another decision i have to make. That is whether or not i am going to keep the babies. i am a single mother and already have 3 children, i think that it is probably the best thing for the babies and i think it would be a blessing to someone who cant have children. especially to get twins. i just worry about whether someone can care as much as i do about the health and the well being of them. i cant just leave them in the hospital with people who i dont know, and who i dont know if they care or not. i mean they will have never met them before and they will not have the connection that i do. i know that is a little off topic but it is something that i am really struggling with. if you have any thoughts or advice please feel free to share them. thank you for listening. Hang in there mothers!!! you can do it!

Hello all!!! i am glad to have found this site. It is very lonely in this room by myself. I am 24 weeks with twins, baby A has ruptured sac of fluid and today they came in and told me i may have preclampsia. i am so scared! because of my water being broke they wanted to do a cathader however i am so scared i dont think i can. I know it is stupid and a little childish but it is a huge fear. I had a bad experience with my daughter in the ER when she had to have one and what i saw was enough to scare me for the rest of my life. I want to be able to do it cuz i know its what best but i cant breath and cant quit crying when i just think about it. The babies get monitored 3 times a day for an hour each time, i am pretty bored and lonely. my family is 250 miles away and i have no one here. to keep my time occupied i try to call people but i have realized that the world doesnt stop just cuz i am in here. I am on facebook alot but i am not doing good, i cant stay on there very long and i cant even watch a whole movie. Sorry to be so depressing. Hope all of you are doing better than i. Take care and good luck.
