Just Diagnosed With Mono Mono Twins

by Josie G
(New York City)

I am 8 weeks pregnant and I was just diagnosed with mono mono twins. The doctors do not see a membrane separating the two. I have been referred to a specialist who said they will perform another ultrasound in 10 days to see if a membrane is visible then. I do not feel I am safe yet. I feel high risk and a need to wait this out and pray. I will read the blogs so that I can educate myself with other's stories. I'm glad there is a place to obtain information and support.

Hi..my name is Danielle and I deleivered mono-mono twin girls at columbia presbyterian on April 1, 2008. You have to use their maternal fetal medicine team. I used Dr. Jack Maidman. However, you meet them all while living in the hospital. The whole team are geniuses and have a higher positive outcome rate than anyone else. We are lucky to live so close to NY Presbyterian. I was put into hospital at 25 weeks and lasted until 33 weeks 5 days. Usually they deliver you at 32 weeks unless the babies are in severe distress. Try to keep positive and get the best DOCTORS! Their NICU is the best on the east coast as well. You can email me with any questions...DSciandra8@aol.com...MOMO twins are truly miracles!

Ijust had mono-mono twin granddaughters born at 23 weeks.The cords were tangled, but they are doing very well. They are now 7 weeks old. Make sure you go to a Children's Hospital with a good NICU and neo-natologists.
