OP almost 14 years ago I had twins also. My doctor told me I was carrying a down syndrome child according to blood work. He wanted an amniocentisis
done that day which he did perform on me (needle into the stomach to take amniotic fluid to test) It was done at 15 weeks. The day before this I
cried all day. Five years it took me to get pregnant and now this. I was distraught.
My water broke and membranes at 26 weeks. The doctors tried to stop the labor for almost 3 days they couldn't. The second night I lost my daughter.
The nurse only told my husband to come see that she thought I lost a baby, he couldn't bring himself to do it. She only put the monitor on me to see
if I was still pregnant, but I knew. I was carrying a dead baby of 15 weeks gestation because of that procedure I should have never done. My son
was born the 3rd night micro-preemie at 1 pound 6 ounces, super tiny. Three months in hospital and he is an A student, not down syndrome at all,
smart, good looking and taller than me.
I was a mental mess after this. I came home with no baby. I had a baby but wasn't allowed to hold him. Only two months later was I allowed to hold
him. It's very mentally draining.
I do know what you are going through. I know you must think what could we have done differently so he could be here. I feel your pain. I'm sorry
any parent has to go through this, it hurts tremendously to lose a child. It does me. And I always had prayed for twins but mostly a boy. I got the
boy and twins, but almost lost both. God Bless You.
It's good to talk about your pain, it helps. Great poems too. S&F
