"IT'S NOT THE LENGTH OF THE GESTATION, IT'S THE EXTENT OF THE ATTACHMENT."

Still

On Friday the smaller tw1n stopped moving. On Monday, there was no heartbeat.

They will treat the pregnancy as a single and proceed as "normal" unless she has any further complications, then they'll do a c-section.

11 weeks to go and she'll have to make arrangements for one tw1n while she brings the other into this world.

She is beyond devastated and my heart goes out to her.

I'm so sorry. This scenario brings back so many horrible memories. And I'm desperately hoping that the other twin will be okay.

What a horrible situation. I hope A. is understanding about this & doesn't make light of it.

Ugh. I just keep thinking of those twin onesies that she's stuck with now. Fucking insensitive gift indeed.
My heart goes out to her.

I'll be praying for mama and both twins, one who is safe in heaven and one to stay safe on earth. My heart goes out to the family.
