Let's just say that the week we had to wait to see the Doc was very long! On 4/5 we had our appt and learned that one of the identicals had stopped growing and no longer had a heartbeat. My immediate response to the loss of one of the triplets was a lot of tears and a sense of mourning but we soon decided that everything is in God's hands and that he had a reason for taking one of our little ones to be with him. We are just grateful that God intervened at such an early stage so that nothing has to be done, the twin will simply be reabsorbed. After gathering my composure, Craig asked me if I had my list of questions for Dr. Tabor, so I grabbed my list from my purse and began to look over it... I quickly realized that all of my concerns we related to having Stacey carry three babies and now that there were only two, most of my questions were irrelevant.
By losing one, we have gained comfort in knowing that the risks are drastically lowered for Stacey and our little ones. We still have the incredible blessing of having fraternal twins on the way and that they are both doing GREAT! Hearing those two little heartbeats chugging along was the most amazing thing Craig and I have ever experienced!!!!! We can't wait until our next sonogram at the beginning of May.
Prayers that our twinkies keep on progressing and that Stacey gets some relief from this HORRIBLE morning/all day sickness that she has been dealing with for the last few weeks. She is such a trooper! Here's to growing babies :)
