Very high risk: This is a very high risk situation and should be handled one on one. Hopefully you have an Obgyn and possibly a Perinatologist involved in your care who can help guide you through the process.

Hi doctor, I am 6 months pregnant with twins. One of my twin is found to have single umbilical artery in the anomaly scan. Is there any prob wit this?

Your doctor may want to send you for a higher level ultrasound study for a more intensive fetal survey evaluation. If other problems are found then genetic counseling is often obtained.

My twin babies died in me for 3 weeks and I gave birth, they were in the same sac and I pass only 1 placenta, is it ok to get pregnant 4 months after?

These twins hardly ever survive because no membrane separates their cords, so the normal movement will eventually wind up twisting the two cords around each other until strangulation occurs ...Read more

Is twin pregnants often miscarry and why?

Is twin pregnants often miscarry and why?

Hope my answer helps: Twins are 2 embryos implanting. The risk of miscarriage with one embryo implanting ia approximately 15% and with 2 embryos this risk is bound to double. In addition, some of the twin pregnancies are from cleavage of 1 embryo that is associated with errors such as unequal DNA material in the 2 embryos. This results in miscarriage in most instances as a protective mechanism. Good Luck! ...Read more
