My doctor said that my wife is having Monochorionic Diamniotic pregnancy, would like to know the pro's and con's. and good to continue or terminate?

Continue: Two babies, two sacs (amniotic) with one placenta. While ALL twin pregnancies are a higher risk than singleton pregnancies, I don't think that this in and of itself warrants consideration for termination based on risks. Of course, this is a very personal decision and one you must have peace about. Good luck! ...Read more

I have monochorionic diamniotic twins pregnancy (23weeks).I am taking iron tablets daily& my problem is that my hb is 9.2 now. How can I increase my hb?

You can therefore, see that continuing your oral iron supplementation is all you need to do at this time. If your hemoglobin drops below 8.5 g/dl, you may want to increase your iron and red meat intake. ...Read more

I have monochorionic diamniotic preganancy. Usually at which week chances for delivery? . My doctor asked to me to take complete bed rest.

Unsure: The average gestational age for twin deliveries is 36 weeks. Your pregnancy should be monitored more closely because of the twins and especially due to the shared chorion.
