Is it possible that my monochorionic diamniotic twins could be a boy and a girl?

Is it possible that my monochorionic diamniotic twins could be a boy and a girl?

Yes: Although it has long been held that monochorionic twins are always identical (monozygotic), there are rare reports of monochorionic/diamniotic twins that are non-identical (dizygotic). This is more common in pregnancies achieved through assisted reproduction (ivf), but is still exceedingly rare. Almost all non-identical twins are dichorionic/diamniotic. ...Read more

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

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. You should consider a second opinion in relation to the bed rest recommendation as current studies would not support that recommendation. Good luck with your twins. ...Read more

Hi I am nine weeks pregnant. ...Doctors found that I am having monochoronic and monoamniotic twis...Wat are the complications. I want both the babies?

Hi I am nine weeks pregnant. ...Doctors found that I am having monochoronic and monoamniotic twis...Wat are the complications. I want both the babies?

Mono/mono not likely: Only 1% of all twins or 1/10, 000 pegnancies are monoamniotic - so it is much more likely that you have monochorionic diamniotic twins instead. The dividing membrane cannot be seen at this early pregnancy stage but that dies bot mean it is not there. Mono/di twins have a 15% risk of ttts. Mono/mono twins have risk of cord entanglement and sudden death and merit hospitalization after 24 weeks. ...Read more

I have diamniotic monochorionic pregnancy. Will it be a boy or a girl type or will it be same gender type?

Identical twins: Identical twins (also called paternal) created from one sperm fertilizing one egg to form one zygote which then divides into two separate and identical embryos. So it will be the same gender type and have all identical features. Congratulations on your happy news! ...Read more

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

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?

Yes: While the diagnosis may be suspected, it can only be confirmed by close examination of the placentas or genetic testing before/after delivery. Usually with early ultrasounds, we can be pretty sure about identical or monozygotic twins. It means that during very early embryo development, one embryo split into two. ...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?

No need to increase.: There is a u-shaped curve describing the relationship between perinatal mortality and maternal hemoglobin; the minimal risk for perinatal mortality is with minimum maternal hemoglobin of 9-11 g/dl. 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
