Not the Day We Expected

Frac measuring right on at 18 weeks.

Fric measuring around 16 weeks 4 days.

We just got back from my appt. Baby A (Frac) looked good, even showed us that he is a boy. Baby B (Fric) wasn't cooperative, but also didn't have much space. They have twin to twin transfusion syndrome. This happens with identical twins, so Fric is also a boy.
Frac is getting all the nutrients and Fric isn't getting enough. This puts both babies at risk, and I could lose one or both, or have them delivered extremely early. I have an appointment with University of Washington tentatively scheduled for Thursday morning. We will know if they are able to do anything to help them at that time.

Oh, Tysa! Yes, this is not what you were expecting today. I will be praying for your appointment on Thursday, and praying for the Lord's protection over these little, growing boys.

PRAYERS for all of you. Aw TJ, I wish I could hug you. Praying that God will wrap His arms around you instead and that you will feel His presence and His comfort. His will be done and it seemed to be His will that you became pregnant to start with. Let's believe together that He will guard those babies and give the doctors the wisdom to help them.

Love you girl!

Identical boys! What a blessing! I will pray for them with all of my heart. God is so good. He's got a plan working for you and your family.

Jenn sent me over, so I wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you and your family!

I came over from Jen's blog to say that I've already prayed for you today, will pray for you again tomorrow, and have sent out a prayer request on your behalf to several of my friends.

I've prayed that your twins will grow into strong, healthy boys who will drive you nuts - so hopefully years from now, you will look back at all the internet strangers who actually prayed that Fric and Frack would pee their names on the bathroom wall . . . and smile.

Your boys are fearfully and wonderfully made in God's own image. May they (and you) be blessed!

Sending more (((Big Hugs))) to you and praying for protection for you, the family and Fric & Frac. Also for the wisdom and discernment of the medical staff helping you. Wish I were close enough to be a physical help with prayers, presence and presents.
