We have been diagnosed with TTTS at 15 weeks and the doctors who diagnosed it wished for us to get to Cincinnati within two days. Cincinnati discussed with our doctors and decided to bring us in week 16 (6 days after getting the news) (Tuesday Nov.3). The girls are 5oz and 4oz and Maddy who is the donor obviously has a little less fluid. They were very active in the ultra sound and that gives me hope... but I fear that it'll take a turn for the worst when we least expect it. They just told me to relax and just remain calm. I believe we're past the guilt and other stages and know the doctors will do their best and all prayers are putting us at ease. Are all cases completely different, will the doctors be right and just 6 days won't turn completely over? Their heart rates are appropriate, Lorelei's is slightly higher, and Maddy's isn't showing any diastolic blood pressure.
Anything anyone would like to share outside of all the other pages?
Should I begin the shakes prior to discussing with my doctor?
