I hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year. I'm guessing most of you are back at work now. Booo
We had a nice Christmas, New Year wasn't great though, I've never been a fan of New Years Day since my dad passed away on that day 4 years ago now. We had our anomoly scan on NYE. They picked up on a few things. Bigger twin is looking fine and growing well but little twin has one multicystic dysplatic kidney, which means only one would function. They also noticed a defect with the lower portion of the vermix of the cerebellum, which could signify a genetic abnormality. The consultant said that she couldn't be sure due to the quality of the scan and the position of the baby. So we are booked in for another scan next Tuesday. If she thinks she can see that again we will need to decide whether to go for amniocentesis or not. So it's all a bit worrying right now. Were just keeping our fingers crossed for the next scan.
Anyway, enough of my doom and gloom. Hope you are all doing okay.

Thanks so much for your support ladies. I didn't mean to turn the thread into being all about me. Let's change the subject. Tell me how you all are!

Hello! I haven't logged onto here for ages. Firstly - massive congratulations Mummysimpson! Secondly - lots of vibes for little twin!

Big hugs MS. I have my fingers crossed your next scan goes well xx
Following your request MS for us all to comment- I too have had my 20 weeks scan. Everything seemed to be ok, but like you they couldn't see clearly so I'm back in 3 weeks for another scan of the heart. In other news GG has got her 3rd tooth but it's randomly right to the side. so she has two middle teeth at the bottom and a top one to the far right. She's going to look like someone JK once it grows a bit more. Don't they normally go from the centre outwards??

BLL - glad the 20 week scan went okay. Good luck for your scan in 3 weeks. These babies can be naughty sometimes and don't want to let the sonographer get a clear look at everything. In terms of teeth, I think there is a general pattern that most follow with teeth but as with most things they can follow their own pattern. I had to giggle at the image of a Jeremy Kyle style baby, I'm sure she will look very cute.

Congrats JJ. Glad to hear feeding is going well and you've got over any issues. Well done M on the sleeping! X

BLL - hope the second scan confirms everything is fine, naughty baby! No idea about teeth but your LO sounds like she'll look adorable :)
JJ - great news on 4.5 hours, I hope that means you managed to sleep too! Glad everything is going well :)
AFM - 30 weeks tomorrow, no idea how that happened! Last night went to a class on water births led by a MW at the hospital, it's confirmed my decision that that's what I'd like if circumstances allow, and I left feeling a whole lot more positive about the birth experience, I don't think I can quite say I'm looking forward to it but not scared/dreading it like I have been!

MS - sorry to hear about little twin - sending loads of vibes for next Tuesday
JJ - glad to hear everything is going well with M. Hope you enjoyed your sleep!
Woowoo - Would love to do a class like that as its what i'm hoping for too, but they don't seem to do anything like this where i am.
AFM - 29 week MW this morning and everything is looking good. Baby is head down and nice strong healthy heartbeat. She asked me if i was poorly when i went to have my bloods done as white cells were up, but i was fine at the time so hope its nothing to worry about. MW didn't seem concerned as said as long as i was well within myself it should be nothing of concern. Second antenatal class tomorrow, last week was more of a getting to know you sort of thing, so looking forward to learning more as we go along!
