I'm 30 weeks pregnant with twins at what point do they become capable of surviving outside the womb?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant with twins at what point do they become capable of surviving outside the womb?

Depends on hospital: That's a tricky a question because if you expect for no interventions to be needed then standard delivery of twins is at 37-38 weeks but even then twins can have slower lung maturity than their single pregnancy counterparts and I would always want neonatal pediatricians around for support. This is also dependent on their placenta and sacs. If with specialist care, sometimes earlier delivery OK. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

I'm 30 weeks pregnant with twins should I be seeing a specialist if my obgyn told me there is only one placenta? What risks does this pose?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant with twins should I be seeing a specialist if my obgyn told me there is only one placenta?  What risks does this pose?

Monochorionic twins: unless your obstetrician has a lot of experience taking care of monochorionic twins, I would see a specialist because these pregnancies can be somewhat high risk, with concern for preterm delivery, inadequate fetal growth, and complications of delivery due to changes in the fetal heart tracing related to having to share a single placenta. hope that helps. ...Read more

I'm 30 week's pregnant with twins about how much do they weigh at this point and how big are they? I feel too small to be carrying twins

I'm 30 week's pregnant with twins about how much do they weigh at this point and how big are they?  I feel too small to be carrying twins

Not an exact science: Everyone is different in how they look throughout their pregnancy but if your OB isn't worried about your weight then you shouldn't be either and I guarantee he/she is keeping tabs and they should be measuring you at each appointment. Around 30 weeks, each twin should be weighing a little less than 4 pounds each, give or take, but that's an average too.Don't worry, place your faith in your doc :-) ...Read more

Terrible nightmare of baby dying inside at 30 weeks pregnancy now 33 weeks. Had a bad day yesterday would this be why? Is it bad?Can it harm my baby?

Most likely no harm: It is known anybody can have a bad day or distress and get over it. It there is a clinical depression, the profound sadness and other symptoms will affect the person, and sometimes they get dysfunctional. What you have experienced does not reach threshhold to diagnose a mood disorder. Least of all harm to the beby based on any evidence. On the other hand, figure out wht the triggers are, and relax ...Read more

30 weeks twin pregnancy andt there are two large fibroids of 11.6cm located at the upper part of the uterus. Does this have effect on the twins?

30 weeks twin pregnancy andt there are two large fibroids of 11.6cm located at the upper part of the uterus. Does this have effect on the twins?

Fibroids pregnant: Twins and large fibroids increase the risk of premature labor. That is the main risk. The fibroids don't directly affect the pregnancy in most cases although there is some risk of pain, bleeding or effects on the placenta. If the fibroids were in the lower area, they could interfere with labor. ...Read more
