I found out I was pregnant with twins in early February 2020. I had ultrasounds every two weeks due to being high risk because of twins. We were told they were mo/di twins, same placenta and different sacs. At the beginning we dealt with twin to twin transfusion syndrome but eventually it evened out and the girls were going great. On 4/30 I went in for my regular two week ultrasound and both girls had passed away within the last two weeks. I was 6 months pregnant at the time. We delivered the babies on 5/7/20 and it was discovered that they were actually rare momo twins and were in the same sac. Their umbilical cords had braided together and that is what caused them to pass away. This is the hardest thing I have ever been through in my life. I didn’t plan this pregnancy and my only child is 8. Now all I can think about is getting pregnant again, probably trying to fill a this large void in my life, but I’m scared.
So sorry to hear about the loss of your twins. I know how it feels wanting to get pregnant right away. We conceived just 3 months after our loss. He's our little rainbow baby and was named after his brother. It can be scary, use your support system, talk to your doctors. Prayers to you.
