After two and a half years of marriage, Kim and Nate Stroh of Humble, Tex., got the good news on New Year's Day that Kim was pregnant with twins.
"We were thrilled about having twins. It felt like it was something so special," Kim, 27, said.
Then, in mid-April, in the course of a routine ultrasound, doctors discovered that the twins were not fraternal, as Kim and Nate had been told, but identical. The Strohs were also told the pregnancy was in trouble. Doctors had discovered a deadly complication.
