2 babies 2 sacs DZ: Twin pregnancies that end without complications and with successful vaginal delivery of both babies at term are rare. Women with multiple gestations are at higher risk for cesarean birth, premature delivery, preterm labor, preeclampsia, diabetes. The best way is to look at the pregnancy one week at a time, to be happy having no problems and getting to go home each visit and to accept what comes.

Ultrasound only!: Anyone that tells you that you can diagnose a multifetal (twin, triplet or higher-order) pregnancy without ultrasound is misleading you. Any symptoms seen in singleton pregnancies can be seen with multiples as well.

Yes.: If i understand you correctly, you are pregnant within 6 months of delivering via cesarean section and were just diagnosed with twins? If that is the case, you have a very high-risk pregnancy for preterm birth, uterine rupture, anemia, fetal growth abnormalities, hypertension, diabetes, previa/accreta. Please see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist asap to explore all reproductive options!

How to increase the chance for having twins in my next pregnancy?

Twins: Naturally, nothing. Taking fertility medicines increases the chance, but at least in the us, reputable doctors won't prescribe this just to increase the chance of multiples.

Hello doctor, twin pregnancy is their any difference between dichronic and monochronic diaminotic twins?

Dr. Elvia Greathouse

Twins: Dichorionic/Diamniotic twins have 2 separate placentas and 2 separate amniotic sacs. Fraternal twins. These have the lowest mortality risk of twin pregnancies. Monochorionic/Diamniotic twins have 2 amniotic sacs and one placenta. Have a risk of increased risk. Monochorionic/Monoamniotic share one sac and one placenta and also have a higher risk. Hope this helps.
