Still 3

Had another ultrasound today at the RE office. Still 3. I'm pretty depressed. I was hoping that maybe I wouldn't have to make a decision about SR, but it looks like I will. Also, C, the one that was a week behind, totally caught up. So B and C are about the same size. That also depresses me. I keep going back and forth with my decision, but I think when I meet with the perinatologist next week it will be good. Nobody should have to go through this. I want to just be happy right now, and I can't.

Oh damn. I was so hoping something would sort itself out and make your decision an easy one. :( I'm sorry.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you and hope that you can find peace with whatever decision you make. I can't imagine being in your situation.

Rough place to be. I almost had to make a similar pregnancy decision years ago, and I still think about it often. Mine worked itself out without my intervention. I had hoped things would be easier for you with all you have been through. I pray for wisdom and comfort for you through all this.

Like another poster said....it's all been said. And yet another...I'll also keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Things happen for a reason and hopefully the reason for you to have three little ones in there right now will become evident soon.

No one who has ever been in that situation would wish it on another. I hope your Peri gives you the information you need to feel strong and at peace with the right decision for YOU. And that everything goes picture-perfect with your pregnancy, once you get past this very difficult decision.

[Like Karen, we ultimately decided against S/R. But there ARE resources on-line for those who did choose it, and I hope you have already found them, as you reach your own decision. Very best wishes, WHATEVER you decide.]

You are correct, no one should have to go through this decision. It's the worst kind of choice to make. I had a couple people write to me who DID selectively reduce, and I will tell you, none of them regretted their decision, if that helps.

The best thing you can do is talk to the perinatologist and get as much information as you can to make a decision with your husband. No matter what choice you make, it's YOUR choice, and it will be the RIGHT choice.

Heather- I think about you often and wonder how you and the beans are doing....I wish you didn't have to go through all of this- it really should be easier- but I know that it isn't. Remember that whatever you decide I am here for you talk to if you need to. Hang in there, hopefully the peri can help you with your questions. Take Care! Keeping you in my thoughts.

Sorry your journey is still rough. This is supposed to be the 100% happy part. It sux that it's not. I support your decision whatever you choose.

pam said...

just found your blog. i just want to say i'm sorry you're facing this really difficult decision. good luck to you!

Karen said...

How are you doing now? I'm afraid that I'll land in the hospital and not know how you're doing. I'll have limited access to my email while there, but not to the greater internet, so if you see me disappear...and you feel comfortable doing so, please don't hesitate to email me: estie2972@gmail.com

I'm thinking of you, and check in on you as often as I can, but haven't seen you update in a bit...

Sara said...

Just thinking about you lately...wondering how you are doing. Take Care! Keeping you in my thoughts-
