Many twins begin to interact with each other around six to ten months of age. Even their sibling squabbles are fascinating to parents who are learning to discern each child's unique personality. Most enthralling to parents of twins, however, is the ease with which each twin seems to anticipate the other's needs.
I am 11 weeks pregnant and had my first doctor appointment this morning. Upon feeling the size of my uterus, my doctor asked me if I was sure about the date of my last menstrual period because my uterus is roughly 2 weeks bigger than it should be.
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 went for an ultrasound at 5 weeks and 4 days (baby A's measurements) baby B was 5 weeks 2 days. All that was showing on the transvaginal ultrasound were the 2 sacs -- no yolks, poles or heartbeats which the technician said is very normal for that early on.
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.
Double the trouble.
Being a teenager is hard everyone knows it. Drama is hard, gossip is hard, the emotions are hard. Being a pregnant teen is hard no one can deny it. disaproval is hard, the emotions are hard, the looks are unbareable. I am EXTREMELY greatful for my family, my friends and the way i was raised. Espically now that i found out im pregnant with twins.
Is there any wonder why there is a low compliance to follow the prescribed guidelines and attempt conception with just one embryo when the chances of a live birth are improved with two? Unfortunately, the greater the number of embryos, the greater the risk of preterm deliveries, therefore having a twin pregnancy is not a benign act.
I found out via ultrasound on October 28th that I am pregnant with identical twins (in the same sack). On 10/28, the larger twin (twin A) was measuring 5 weeks 6 days with a faint heartbeat. Twin B was smaller (I don't know how much smaller), and no heartbeat was detectable. 5 days later, on November 2, I had a follow-up ultrasound b/c of bleeding. Twin A is now measuring 7 weeks 4 days, and twin B is measuring between 5 weeks 6 days and 6 weeks 1 day. No heartbeat for twin B yet.
I've been crawling around on the floor, visiting the chiropractor and doing inversions to turn my 29 week twins. So far I haven't had any luck. They're both transverse.
I'm really committed to a vaginal birth. What else would you suggest I do?
