Two days ago, during my weekly checkup, my doctor found only one heartbeat. One of my babies had died since my last checkup.
Again I was offered a termination. I asked if the risks for me were significantly increased, and since they are not, I declined.
Apparently I will either go into labour and deliver both babies, or the dead baby will re-absorb, and the pregnancy will continue. Who knows for how long, but I have to take the chance.
At least we dont need to buy a people mover now, right?
Although the natural thing to do would be to howl at the moon, get horribly drunk, and delve into hysteria, Ive chosen to keep it together for the time being, while I still have a live baby to gestate.
Just dont ask me how I am.
