Me Lucky?

I never thought of myself as lucky... I have had a string of bad luck on this fertility road, but maybe now I am lucky, or at least that is what I have been told.

I joined a thread on FF for women with cerclages. Many of them lost their first baby to an incompetent cervix and are now pregnant again. They seem to think that I am lucky to have caught the cervix issues early and had a cerclage placed. They also think I have a great shot of holding onto these boys for quite some time if I am monitored closely. Seeing posts like that makes me smile. I need to hear that hope! Maybe I am lucky... I am married the man of my dreams, we finally got pregnant, we froze 5 beautiful embryos, it's twins, and we caught a bad thing just in time. Hummm... maybe I should buy a lottery ticket?

19 more days until 24w viability!

Oh, hubby has been doing the googling for me.... random announcement last night "babies born at 26 weeks have a 95% chance of survival."

I don't blame you for feeling unlucky with all you've been through. But yes these babies are such a blessing. I'm so happy for you that your having twins, with five yes thats right FIVE frozen could be brothers and sisters. That is such a lucky blessing if you ask me. God is good.

Preemies have great odds these days! Great odds! I have a 35 wkr and a 28 wker. They are amazing and healthy and let's hope you never have to know that roller coaster too. Rest and have faith.

We have tons of 26 weekers born at the hospital I work at and with the advance in medicine and a good NICU that have experience with preemies success rates are great. But you are going to make it farther than that and your boys are going to do great! Even though people keep telling you you are "lucky" you still have every right to feel cheated and unlucky. This has not been an easy road for you from what I follow on FF. Just remember you have a lot of people rooting for you
