My daughter was a twin, but I lost her brother/sister in my 3rd month of pregnancy. This was a natural “reduction”... and I will never forget how horrified I was at losing my child, but when I went to emergency they found I had another still there! Joy!
sorry for your lose We were born in 60 my mom found out she was having twins 3 weeks before we were born she had a dr’s appt. one morning the dr. said you half way thur labor she drove her self to the hospital and less than an hour later we was born
“but when I went to emergency they found I had another still there! Joy!”
That is a great story! Of course sad that you lost a child, but amazing that you still had a child.
When we went in for my wife’s first ultrasound the gal doing it paused, and then said something like “So, um. Has your doctor commented about how your pregnancy is going?” My wife told her the generic things.
“Well. Um - congratulations - you’re having twins!” Dad (me) promptly found the chair as he was fainting!
Several months later getting mom checked out 10 weeks before the due date as she had been having contractions (and had also been on bed rest for 12 weeks already).
Everything was good until I reminded the doctor “Weren’t you going to check her cervic?”
After she got her gloves back on and got my wife back in the chair “Oh. She’s at a 7.” Dad proceeded to faint again!
Funny what some folks will go through to give their unborn children the best chance at life that they can. (Oh - two girls at 3 lbs 2 oz. Doing great now at age 13!)
Same thing happened to me as well with our second son. I was so happy to still be pregnant with one as well. Every once in awhile I think about the one we lost and wonder what he or she would have been like. We always wanted three or four kids - I guess this was God’s way of telling us it was going to be three.
