|Day of ultra sound|
Finally the ultra sound tech allowed DB(who also had his 3 year old son with him) to come in the room. She showed us baby A and Baby B, then she told us how baby A was smaller.... I responded to her my saying " thats ok she's just the runt". I didn't want to loose one of the two babies I had just found out about.
The doctor came and went and couldn't tell us anything he sent us to wait in emergency and called the Children's hospital to find out what to do next.
I finally got to check my phone which I had been dieing to do(I'm a phone aholic). One of the friends was just a short reply "what? really?", the second person was quite a few. I wish I would have thought to save this text. It went something like this..
your joking right?
Ha ha really funny Bonnie
OH MY GOD YOUR NOT JOKING"
I loved it because you could tell the minute she realized I wasn't kidding.. also because I didn't answer for an hour.
The doctor finally got a hold of the children's hospital doctors 2 hours later. They had NO answers for me. They couldn't tell me if the twin was going to make it or if I would lose both. They didn't no why one was smaller, if they were identical. All they new was the small one was on the 1st percentile(meaning small) and they shared the same placenta. I even asked since they share a placenta would't they have to be identical.. they told me no that's not how it works. WRONG that is how it works!!!!!! They told me I needed to be at Vancouver children's hospital by Monday afternoon(valentines day 2011). I asked how long I would be there to prepare my self and they told me I wouldn't need to be there longer then 2-3 days..
Little did I know i would have to stay there till baby's were born 2 months later and Hannah would spend 18 months in the hospital.
