Cesarean section!: 80% of all us twins are estimated to be born via c-section nowadays. If additional factors such as uterine anomalies are present then the risks of trial of labor increase even further and a prelabor c-section by 36-38 weeks may be preferable. Discuss these issues with your maternal-fetal medicine specialist in detail to choose the best option for your family. Vaginal delivery may be possible. ...Read more
Yes but: There is more ivf going on now because it is more accepted and the rates of infertility are increasing (that's another post). But also to blame are some societal reasons like increasing maternal age at birth- older mothers are more prone to twinning. Also because of improved neonatal care, twins are more likely to survive and reach reproductive age and that increases odds of more twins. ...Read more
Twin girls born at 24 weeks weighing less than 500 grams each . How high is the possibility of survival?
You'd be amazed...: The majority of 24 week infants now survive, especially if they make it through the first 48 hours of life. That's not to say they may not have significant problems with breathing, feeding, development, vision. You also don't say 24 weeks and how many days . 24 weeks 0 days is worse than 24 weeks 5 days - at that stage of the game, every extra day makes a difference. Continue hope, faith and pray. ...Read more
I'm 20 years old, i'm a twin by the way and i was born premature. Is there any chance or way that i will gain weight.
Resistance training: I am going to assume that what you want is to gain lean muscle mass now that your adult height has been reached, and also that you are doing resistance training and discovering you are a "hard gainer". Ignore all advice about increasing calories, read a scientific book on nutrition, work hard in the gym, avoid steroids, consider creatine & an electric muscle stim unit if ok with your physician. ...Read more
C-section!: 80% of all twins are born via c/s in the us nowadays. The reason is that the second twin has a 20% greater chance of dying at birth compared to the first twin. I recommend prelabor cesarean section for all twins at this time, especially if bilateral tubal ligation is planned - talk to your maternal-fetal medicine specialist to see if that is good option for you. ...Read more

I am expecting twins and I was born with microtia(one ear) and was wondering of they can get it. I currently have a 15 mth old son who doesn't have it?
Unlikely: The potential origins of this variable defect are many, can include simple accidents in formation or some genetic influences. The highest risk number is likely 4-5% given to those that may arise from genetic influence.A detailed 3D ultrasound may be able to detect/aleve your anxiety mid-pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When conjoined twins are separated and survive the surgery do they still have the same average life span as would a baby born un conjoined?
Depends: Often conjoined twins share organs and other structures that are vital for living a normal life. It would depend on how they are conjoined. Generally their life expectancy would be lower and moreso in 1 twin. Please ask your pediatric surgeon for guidance. He/she would be the best to know. All the best with this difficult dilemma. ...Read more
5'4 and 115 pds, thin frame size 2, just found out i'm having twins. Will I have a problem carrying babies to term? Chances of babies born small?
Maternal age: It is really important to choose an Obgyn and begin your prenatal care. All twin pregnancies are high risk. Your age of 39 also makes the pregnancy high risk. Your small stature is not likely to be an issue increasing risk but of course each case needs to be managed individually ...Read more
My twins are 20 month old, born premature (at 33 week). Is it normal for them to have only 6 teeth?
Probably yes: If toddlers are happy, healthy, and growing, they are unlikely to have a medical problem that is slowing their teeth eruption. The doctor would know, as he has seen the kids for >8 check-ups already. Kids erupt primary teeth on their own schedule, with some normal kids being "late" on their teeth. A pediatric dentist can check to see if all is ok, but in general, the teeth eventually appear. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
How can I tell whether I have the hyper ovulation gene or not? My grandfather was a twin and my mothers twins died before I was born.
Not sure: I'm not sure what you are referring to by the term, "hyper ovulation gene". Are you referring to ovarian cancer? See a family doctor or an ob/gyn to discuss your family tree and history to make sure you're not at increased risk of a genetic cancer. Consider re-phrasing the question, as well, when you have a more specific name for the hyper ovulation gene. ...Read more
