What are the chances to have twin pregnancy or beyond in existence of uterus fibroid?

What are the chances to have twin pregnancy or beyond in existence of uterus fibroid?

Depends: The incidence of twins depends on what part of the world you are from. In the us, the incidence is 33/1000. Because the position of the fibroid in your uterus may be an important factor, it is difficult to say if your chances are better or worse than another patient without fibroids. Check with your OB to find out if the fibroid is near the inner surface of the the uterine cavity or the outer.

What are the chances of someone who has cervical incontinence and gestational diabetes carrying a twin pregnancy successfully?

What are the chances of someone who has cervical incontinence and gestational diabetes carrying a twin pregnancy successfully?

Twin pregnancy: Can be risky for someone with history of gestational diabetes, but certainly not impossible. Other history heightens the perinatal risk, including placenta previa, placentia abruptio, previous C-section, previous eclampsia or pre-eclampsia, previous preterm labor or premature births. Be in close relationship with your OB physician and nurse. Good luck.

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.

What can I expect a twin pregnancy to be like?

What can I expect a twin pregnancy to be like?

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.

Is it dangerous to have twin pregnancy after cs by 6 months?

Is it dangerous to have twin pregnancy after cs by 6 months?

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!

What is the best method to help with stretch marks after twin pregnancy?

What is the best method to help with stretch marks after twin pregnancy?

Give them some time: They may lighten up with time, and you can decide whether you still want to do something about them later. Try cocoa butter to help keep the skin elastic. Avoid sun damage. Sometimes, retinoids (creams often used for acne) can help, and pulse-light or laser can as well.

20week TWIN pregnant Is it a good time to get "cervical cerclage" done to save my TWIN pregnancy? How safe it is and what is the success rate?

20week TWIN pregnant Is it a good time to get "cervical cerclage" done to save my TWIN pregnancy? How safe it is and what is the success rate?

Need more info: There is no need to get a cerclage just because you have a twin pregnancy. It is recommended only if there's risk of preterm labor. There are, of course, risks to this procedure - including infection, bleeding, premature rupture of membranes, preterm labor, etc. The success rate ranges from 80-90% if done electively (not emergency). You should discuss further with your OB. Best wishes.

Is walking for 60 min per day at week 21 okay still with a twin pregnancy or is it too long?

Is walking for 60 min per day at week 21 okay still with a twin pregnancy or is it too long?

Definitely okay: So long as your doctor has not told you that there is a reason you should not be walking or exercising in pregnancy, walking is great. Even 60 min a day. Exercise in pregnancy actually decreases your risks in pregnancy, so that's great you're committed to a healthy pregnancy. If you were to bleed/spot or start cramping, let your doctor know, asap. Good luck and have a great twin pregnancy!

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

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

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.
