by: Anonymous

Hi Jenni, I hope everything went fine with your pregnancy. I just got the news that I'm having twins. They think they may be Moni twins bc no membrane was seen. I was only 6 weeks 4 days, so I am scheduled to see a specialist for a high resolution us in four weeks. I hope they see find the membrane, but looking at your us pics.....mine looks just like that. I'm just a little scare, but leaving everything in God's hands.

Do twins discuss life & death?
by: JosieRobertsTromboneLibrarian

My mom had 2 waters when I was born, but only I was born. No mention of another child. Was there another -- which died before or after term? If so, did we discuss which of us should emerge into the world to perform the destiny / purpose that both were intended to get done/ How will I find ut about this ? I am age 65 male now, i am not gay but emotionally I think like a woman a lot. I am also left-handed and unusually strong bones. -- with blood marrow of course. Everyewhere I go shopping, about five minutes after i arrive with no crowd, all of a sudden 10 more people come along and there is a big group for the place to handle. Is my twin with me still and us attracting attention ? Why can't I get a date for 20 years ? Is it because people see I am already with a woman, my twih, and think she is my girlfriend ? ?

So pregnant for the 3rd time and my hcg 6 days after my missed peri was 8000 now I am not sure if any of you understand this but thats way high so they wanted to do an US to see if there is one or two so I had the US on nov 3, 2011 they found two heart beats but they were back to back so it was hard to see them I was 6weeks and 4 days at that time. So then I went to the OB and they did an US and only found one but he really didnt take the time to find the other. Then the other OB who sent me to have the ultrsound said that there is one yolk sack and two fetal poles so they want me to go to perinatologist to find out what is going on. so I might have mo-mo twins or twins or no twins I am so confused I have been through two pregnancies and never been this sick I have to stay on the zofran just to barely make it through the day and it is still bad. I hate not knowing what is going on. I hate when people think I should be happy that there is one ( the US tech) and dont take there time in looking for the other when I first US took two hours to find them and brought in a sec US tech to comfirm there was two. I know every pregnancy is different but to be this sick and to not be able to eat or drink I mean there has to be a reason right? Please has anyone has this prob or something simlar to it? Thanks

I have my 11 wk ultrasound next Wednesday, and I have this gutt feeling that I'm too expecting twins. This is my 3rd pregnancy, but I have NEVER felt so sick before. All day and night, every day! The Zofran that the doctor's office prescribed doesnt even cut it. It's horrible. Quite honestly, I would not be obsesing about it if it weren't that my oldest has always reffered to my stomach as "the BABIES" since day one! Pretty much, I was wondering if any of you have had the same symptoms!? I also feel extremely fatigued. When 1pm hits, and I must put my kids to take a nap so I can too rest. I can't wait for my appt next week!!!!

I am scared to death. I had a miscarriage on 4/19/11. Never had a period and found out at the end of May 2011, I was pregnant with a home test. Went to the Dr. and had a vaginal u/s. No one really knows how far I am. There was a gestational sac and one yolk sac. Went back 11 days later there is now 1 gestational sac with 2 yolk sacs but still no fetal pole or HR. The Dr. seems to think I am just really early and maybe at most 6 weeks which is in place with my HCG blood work. Can anyone offer any advise. I am set to go back in another week to see if there are changes.

It's a good ride!
by: Anonymous

My twins are 14 months old and I feel bittersweetness reading all of your stories. My guys were unexpected, (but oh so welcome!) as I had only one ovary, one tube and was over 40 yrs. of age. Every day, I prayed as I went to the bathroom, "please no blood, please no cramps, God, please no nothing!" I did have some bleeding around 10 wks, nothing serious. Had some cramping til around month 4. Who knows. I envy all of the ultrasounds to "visit" my littles. I loved every minute of every visit. I do not however envy the constant roller coaster ride of "will my babies survive?, will they go to term? will they be healthy?, can I really be that lucky???" Well I was, that lucky, we were. My family is busier than I could have ever imagined. My husband, older daughter and I are absolutely loving every minute of every day with our littles. They have blessed our family like nothing I could ever describe. Enjoy your pregnancies, enjoy your babies. It is truly a miracle. Best to you all!

momo twins at 12wks
by: jill

I went in for my first prenatal appointment two days ago, i was 12wks 2days, and found out that we were having twins. I was extremly suprised since we have a 2yr old girl at home. We saw both heartbeats and little jumping bodies that were measuring equally at 12 wks (good sign). The doctor couldn't see a membrane in between the twins and told me to come back in 4 weeks to see if they might be able to see a membrane then. We decided to seek out a new doctor that specializes in high risk pregnancy. I will meet with him at 13wks 5days. I will also be seeking out the opinion of a perinatologist. Im hoping to get more answers soon as to whether we will be having momo twins or regular identical twins. Good luck to everyone in the same situation.

momo twins is a very stressful pregnancy, but you need to just leave it in God's hands. I was dianosed with momo twins at 11 weeks, they stayed tangled from 14 weeks on, i went twice daily monitering from 28 weeks no inpatient. I was induce at 34 weeks and because of my awesome dr. i delivered them vaginally 5lbs 6ox and 5lbs 9ox on 12-22-09 they are finally safe and true miracles. It was amazing to see the tangled cords after deliverly, and i believe what is meant to be will happen, so have faith

my twins were initially thought to be momo too
by: Anonymous

I had five ultrasounds between 8 and 20 weeks - no membrane detected. Found it at 21 weeks! My OB said this was not all that uncommon and that it gets easier to see the membrane as time goes on.

Good luck!

I am 11 1/2 weeks pregnant with what they have said are momo twins. I am so happy to know that it is possible to find the membrane still. My next appointment is on Feb. 1st and I am just praying that they will see a membrane. I am happy for you that they found yours! Good luck and God bless.

maybe not mo/mo
by: Anonymous

It took them 3 u/s to find the membrane between my identical twins, at 7wks, and 10wks they couldn't see it, but at 12wks and 14wks they could see the membrane,
