Twin to twin transfusion syndrome
« on: November 07, 2011 at 08:58 AM »
I am 25 weeks pregnant with identical twin girls. My girls were diagnosed with TTTS at 16 weeks. We had the laser procedure done immediately and it was a success. So far both babies are thriving. It is a miracle. But my cervix keeps shortening. I have been on strict bed rest for 9 weeks now. I think I am feeling some depression from this bed rest...and I know I should just be thankful and focus on the babies. I hate that I feel this way. Anyone else experiencing TTTS or an extremely long bed rest?

Haven't seen a post in while. How are you doing? Are you still home on BR?

That is so wonderful to hear! Thanks for posting an update! How are you doing emotionally? Any advice for other moms as they start their bedrest journey?
