Twin prgnancies ?'s: Although twin pregnancies cause accelerated pressure and discomfort throughout, the best safeguard for premature delivery is cervical dilation, which can be measured fairly accurately with serial ultrasound. If significant shortening or dilation of the cervix is detected, a cerclage may be advised if the pregnancy is less than 30 weeks. Stay in touch with your OB provider.
