Our Minnesota MoMo Twins

We found out at 16 weeks that I was having twins, which wasn't a real shocker to me since I have twins and triplets in my family. But then two weeks later, we found out the bad news.. they were in the same sac. After ALOT of research and I trip to Mayo Hospital, we found out that we would have a long journey ahead of us.

At 24 weeks I was admitted to the hospital. We had Claire & Caidence on 1-11-11 at 11:01 am.

After a month in the NICU, we took them home. They are 5 months old and doing WONDERFUL! Best word of advice: don't stress too much, enjoy being pregnant! Also, bring things to keep you active in the hospital. We played alot of board games and watched a lot of movies!

So wonderful
by: Anonymous

I'm an English mum and have 2 beautiful girls ( MoMo twins), who are shortly going to be 21 this year. We didn't realize the risks at the time but had fantastic care even then with regular checks on their growth . I didn't have to go into hospital until 33 weeks and they arrived at 34 weeks . Thankfully though small , were able to come home 4 weeks later.
I can say to any expectant Mum try to be positive !

MN Momo Momo Boys
by: Anonymous

Our babies were born 1-11-08 at the hospital in Robbinsdal,MN. I was admitted at 25 weeks for monitoring. Even tho there is nothing you can do to change what's going, it is still a stressful time. I had a 3 year old also at the time and it was extremely hard on him not to have mom around. I'm not going to lie, it's rough! But my nurses, all 14 of them were amazing!! They felt like family, so you will have support while you're in the hospital. It's also a perfect time to get caught up on projects or hobbies, it will help keep you busy. We delivered our boys at 32 weeks. They were both unmet 4#s and healthy as could be! They stayed in NICU for 3 weeks so they could gain some more weight and get to the point their body temps could stay up. They are now 9 and super healthy and active. The bond between them is so unique, it's unlike any other I've ever seen. It's been a blessing beyond words to have these 2 little boys. 💙💙

My Story
by: Courtney From Pennsylvania

Im so happy to hear that u had a happy ending! I had a set of Mono Mono twin boys. I found out at 16weeks that I was pregnant and that the shared everything. At 24 weeks I went into labor I was in labor for 18hrs. I gave birth to Caleb Timothy 1lb 7oz and Mason Eric 1lb 9oz they both were 12 1/2 inches. They were perfect. They ended up having Fetal the fetal transfusion. They only lived for approx 45 mins b4 going home to heaven. Im so happy to see so many happy stories and I pray all of u have a beautiful and safe pregnancy. By the way God blessed me with 3 amazing boys 1 2 and 3 yrs after I lost my twin boys. Good luck and lots of love. From the Zuschlags! :)

Momo Momo Twins - New Pregnancy?
by: Anonymous

I have MoMo twins that are now 11 years old. Born premature at 32 weeks, they were very small at 3lbs 7oz, and 3lbs 11 oz.

The one thing I can tell anyone having identical mono-mono twins is DON'T WORRY! Your doctor will do everything in their power to make sure you have two live healthy babies, and NICU nurses are one of a kind!
