My Mono Mono Hawk-I Girls
(Iowa City Iowa USA)
Found out at 8 weeks I was pregnant, at 10 weeks I knew we were mono/mono. I didn't know much about mono mono or just how high risk and rare they are. I am now 29 weeks stiiting in the hospital with monitoring 3x's a day.
The fact that twins are rare naturally, and of those natural twins only 2% are mono mono I was shocked and dumbfounded! I became more intimidated when I found out that 50% chance of fetal death of one or both of the twins. So here I am at a one of the nation's best hospitals in Iowa.
Our hope is to make it to 34 weeks, so delivering at the end of January 2010. I do have 2 wonderful boys at home that my supportive awesome family is helping take care of, and they come see me when they are not busy! Hoping I get to go home for Christmas for a few hours, but it's up to my girls and as long as they heart rates look good they may let me.
I feel so Confident in my high-risk staff here and they have my babies best intrest at heart! so I'll keep you updated. I just know that my girls are in God's hands and he knows whats best!
