    On 15th Feb 2016, we had our 18week scan and found out we were having identical boys!
    We were sat back in the waiting room and couldn't believe we'd now got to think of two boys names when we couldn't even think of one.
    We were then dealt the blow that we were showing signs twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). This is explained as a disease of the placenta where abnormal blood vessels interrupt the blood flow to the babies causing 1 baby to not have enough, and 1 baby to have too much. Due to needing specialised care, we were referred to Birmingham Women's fetal unit.
    Only 8% of ID pregnancies get this, with a 95% chance they will die without laser ablation surgery.
    TTTS progressed very quickly for us and in 5 days we were stage 3 (of 5) and having the surgery plus two litres of fluid drained on February 23rd 2016 under local anaesthetic.
    We were scanned afterwards and the good news was that the boys survived the surgery.
    On February 29th (20+1weeks) we went for our follow up scan and my little boy lay on the screen not moving, no little wriggles, no little bubbles, and no heartbeat. That image will never leave my memory.

    He was given the name Elijah.

    The next 15weeks went by in a daze and on 16.6.16 we welcomed our beautiful boys.
    We are raising money so hopefully in time, no other parents have to lose their babies, and no other brothers or sisters have to grow up without their twin.
