A woman in Mexico lies about being pregnant with nontuplets after giving birth to triplets, which is also untrue. Why did she do it?
There's an alarming increase in women having multiple babies at one time. What's causing this statistic to rise and what does it mean?
Dear Ms Ultrasound,
Having one baby is cause enough for a new or even an experienced mom to worry. But the worry only multiplies at hearing you're carrying multiples. So, after you've had a moment to freak out or pick your partner up off the floor, now is the time to get serious and start asking the right questions to get your pregnancy off to a great start.
I am currently 17 weeks pregnant with my third baby and everyone keeps telling me that I look like I'm having twins cause of the size of my belly.
this is my 5th pregnancy, and I am currently 10 weeks along.
My first ended in a loss at 14 weeks, with hearing the heartbeat at my first OB appt at 10 weeks. My second pregnancy was a little over a year later, ending in the birth of my daughter (now 7). About 7 months after she was born I got pregnant again, ending in a loss at 12 weeks. That was in 2003. In Jan of 2010 I found out I was pregnant again, and lost it in Feb of 2010.
Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My boyfriend and I have been through hell the past few days. This past Thursday, we went in for our first ultrasound and the doctor said there was one gestational sac, but couldn't find the heartbeat. She said the I was either earlier that I thought, or I could be miscarrying. (I have very irregular periods, so she said I might have ovulated later, or something like that) So she set up another appointment for an ultrasound for four days later (today - Monday), and told me if I started to bleed to go to the E.R.
"A sonogram just confirmed that I'm carrying twins. I'm excited, but really, really nervous. Getting my head around having one baby on the way has been exciting and a little scary. Now I'm terrified. I don't know how I'll manage having two babies at once!" You will manage as a mother of twins, in ways you never thought possible...
Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I am 6 weeks pregnant. Last week I had an extremly vivid dream that my first ultrasound showed twins. The next day I was cooking eggs for breakfast, when I cracked open the egg, low and behold, I had a twin egg, double yolk! I have been vividly dreaming of twins ever since.
Eating right and gaining the recommended amount of weight is important in any pregnancy, but this is especially important when carrying more than one baby.
