I think keepingbusy had ttts and she replied on this and is very informed so I would pm her about those legs but get to hospital if you have any concerns as could be blood pressure, oedema, any number of things, funny three days before I gave birth (totally irrelevant to your situation I know) I suddenly developed very puffy ankles and I spent those 3 days upside down on my hospital bed, at the time thought it was a nuisance but it was likely meaning something so better to check x

    Hi Blondie yes I just read keeping busy posts. Hers was stage of 1 and she's didn't require surgery. It seems that everyone's position is depending on how the twins have reacted to the ttts. The doc said mine were both a good size and size difference was less than 10%, which was good and the donor still had fluid around although only 2cm. The recipient had 18cm which is huge. He mentioned something about the recipients liver but I didn't really understand. He also mentioned that my cervix was good.  I decided in the end to go abroad. Everything OK so far. Will have my scan on Thursday. Should of had one this week but nothing more can be done. I can feel movement and have a doppler so can gear heartbeats. Also have a number to text for a doctor in Kings college hospital who said my swollen ankles is nothing to do with the procedure and just more likely a pregnancy symptom. Just to get my blood pressure checked out. My dad is a nurse so he's keeping an eye on me too.  Haha I've been sticking to my legs up too.  Another ailment to the list.
    Trina I'm glad to hear they have given you some kind of pain relief. Before the surgery I was in agony. Pressure on the nerves I couldn't get in any comfortable position.

    Well what can I say. My water broke on Tuesday am for 1 twin. Drove myself to hospital as wasn't in pain where confirmed. As obviously specialist have been taken 100 miles away from home in Kent as no nearer beds available.
    I'm not having contractions but being 25 weeks today think I'll be in for up to a week.
    Not had a scan since my laser surgery two weeks ago which I'll push for today as yesterday they were extremely busy. Still leaking a bit. Just never been easy. I'm  just really fed up, just one thing after another for 6 months. If anyone ever says they've had a hard pregnancy ill be so annoyed. Apart from that I'm OK, not in pain is the only good thing.
    Trina hope you're doing OK.
    Blondie and you xx

    I've asked for scan. Really annoying me. I'm supposed to be scanned every week. Haven't been since surgery been 2 weeks. I'm really not happy. I don't know what's happening after my surgery with the babies. Think it's very unfair for them to reject. I just want to go home now and I'm going to ask. I can go into hospital and have infection test.

    Glad your home best to be relaxing and taking it easy

    When I was in hospital they let woman go home if no signs of infection and they had to come in twice a week to be checked x
