Get evaluated: You need to see an ob/gyn and get evaluated. Your second twin is in very serious danger. A maternal fetal expert can advise you on what options are available. Best of luck. Lack of amniotic fluid suggests a problem with the kidneys or bladder. ...Read more

Why are triplet pregnancies considered much higher risk than twins?

Why are triplet pregnancies considered much higher risk than twins?

Earlier, smaller: The risk of preterm birth is higher for several reasons; triplet birth is likely to be earlier than that of twins. In addition, there is greater risk of growth problems, deformations from crowding, malpresentation. For the mother of triplets, the risks from abdominal delivery are higher than those of women with twins delivered vaginally and possibly abdominally, depending on the size and position. ...Read more

Faternal twins at my last u/s they where in the t shape now I'm feelings kicks all over are they able to move all around I assumed they would stay t ?

Wrong assumption: When they are small enough they will move around. As they get bigger and take up more space they will inevitably restrict their ability to move around. There growth will be monitored by your OB. There are standard growth curves. Full term for twins is frequently 38 weeks. Best wishes for a successful pregnancy. ...Read more
