Hello my name is Erin and I'm 22 weeks with identical boys. Around 17 weeks I had an ultrasound and things didn't look normal so I got reffered to a specialist and at 18 weeks my twins were diagnosed with TTTS. It is very rare and was a huge shock to me and my partner!! After a lot of thinking we went to Seattle and got Laser Fetoscopic Surgery done to try and fix it the best possible way. During the surgery they found out that baby B only had 20% of the placenta and they weren't sure that would be enough for him to live off of. After the suregery there wis only a 60% chance that both twins will make it and myn was even lower since they shared the placenta unevenly. I got to come back home to boise after a week in Seattle and do follow up ultrasounds and appointments every week. Both my boys are doing great and I've had the best possible results!!! Im so blessed and was just curious to hear about other TTTS stories out there. I'm also here to give advice or tell my story to anyone who is going threw this... It can be very hard and stressful.
