Update on the twins
Daniel and I just got back from my ultrasound. They were only able to find one baby. Twin B vanished in what is commonly known as "Vanishing Twin Syndrome." I was somewhat prepared for this news because of everything I had read. I knew that with twin A measuring 10 wks and twin B only measuring 6 wks at my last appointment that I would had to have conceived them on separate dates for twin B to be healthy and that is so rare since the cervix closes very soon after conception. Most twins are conceived at the same time just as ours were. We were disappointed to lose a 3rd baby (I miscarried two previously) but we know that we will see those 3 in heaven one day. It was exciting to see our one big healthy baby in there doing great, which happens to be a BOY. I can't really imagine myself as a mother of 3 sons but I am thrilled and so is Daniel. He really wanted another son and I secretly hoped it would be one for his sake:-). Wow! 3 Rich brothers... we are so blessed! His name is Elisha which means "God is my Salvation".
