You would think after our experiences I would know better....
Yesterday was our NT scan, where they measure the fluid in the back of the babie's necks to screen for abnormalities. The scan apparently showed the bottom Twin to be doing fine but the top Twin seemed to have too big a gap in the measurement. Here is the thing though, Jeff and I saw the exact same thing and we are sticking to it: with the first baby she measured a space in between the neck and we could clearly see that. BUT the second baby we both saw her measuring the space between the neck and the sack....which would obviously show a bigger gap, right?
Did we say something to her? No. She is the expert. We both said what we saw to each other right away but we didn't speak up to her. Jeff only told our Doctor what we saw after, but of course she said that the other biotch (I don't like her for obvious reasons) was the expert. We were in too much of a shock to argue with the experts. In any case, not only do they want us to do a CVS (they remove a tiny sample from the placenta) to test any genetic disorder and its more accurate than this ultrasound screening but we are supposed to start thinking of possibly terminating my Twin.
How about NO? I know that if its one of the really bad defects (Trisomy 13 or Trisomy 18) it could affect the other twin. And don't ask me what those are because as informed as I am I REFUSE to read anything negative, I don't know what they are because I don't want to know what they are and because I DONT NEED to know what they are. MY TWINS HAVE TO BE FINE.
I cannot willingly go to terminate either of them, I just can't. Not after all we've gone through to even get to this point.
When my CVS testing comes back normal I'm going back to smack that lady. Now, I'm only nervous and crying and angry and since Jeff read that Twins should not be tested for CVS I don't know what to do. I'll just go and cry some more.
