Our first picture of our girls...
This is an account of our journey with Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome ( check out this link if you would like to know the details!) with our daughters Tabitha and Priscilla. I wanted to have all my blogposts about this experience all in one place, mostly for myself, but also for anyone else who might be interested. I don't think I'll necessarily include every post-but at least the important ones. However, for reference all posts from the end of August 2012 to December 2012 have some connection to this journey....
Mother's Day: Pregnancy Announcement (!)
Double Mint Gum: Twins Announcement (!!)
Doubly Blessed Thoughts on being pregnant with Twins...
What are the odds?! Finding out our girls share a placenta ( and possibly an amniotic sac, though this turned out to not be the case).
Drum roll please! We found out the sex of the babies!
Things start to get difficult: We are faced with Twin to Twin transfer...
A swiss ball prayer: I think this is when I can look back and pen point when I knew something was really wrong, but just wasn't quite at a place to believe it yet.
Sufficient: Faced with the truth of it all...
Introducing, Priscilla and Tabitha: I am so thankful that the Lord gave us both their names before things started to hit the fan.
These two posts were pre-surgery (fetoscopic laser ablation) and so much happened, So.... Quickly. But I am thankful for the Lord's help through it all.
Post-Surgery: Day One
Day Two: Praying so hard for Priscilla and then loosing her seemed like a bad dream.
Day by Day: Facing the loss of a baby
The month of September flew by it was filled with returning to Georgia, going back to Texas and back into the Hospital. And I spent pretty much the whole month of October in the hospital.
Some of major things I learned during that time:
From Luke 5:5
That all seasons end...eventually
"Arise and Walk" what else I learned from Luke 5
A new appreciation for Hannah
Time, according to God
My husband: An example
Finally, at the beginning of January, our girls were born: Birth Story .
