What is twins with two separate amniotic sacs a sign of?

What is twins with two separate amniotic sacs a sign of?

Diamniotic Twins: Twins that have two separate amniotic sacs are called diamniotic twins. This usually means that they are fraternal twins (arise from two separate fertilized eggs) but in some cases they can be identical twins (twins form from a single fertilized egg that splits in the course of development). ...Read more

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

Is it ok to have twins in 5-6 week gestiona, one sac but no heart beats. Hcg levels, 51330 iu/ml and after two days it became 57396iu/ml is it normal?

Is it ok to have twins in 5-6 week gestiona, one sac but no heart beats. Hcg levels, 51330 iu/ml and after two days it became 57396iu/ml is it normal?

Probably not: The HCG should double in 2 days at that point in the gestation. The example you give had only a minimal increase. This does not sound like a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

I am 6 wk p based on ov date, scan had shown crl 4.6mm, amniotic sac 24.4mm & gestation sac at 42.4mm (11wk p). Is enlarged gs a sign of non viable p?

I am 6 wk p based on ov date, scan had shown crl 4.6mm, amniotic sac 24.4mm & gestation sac at 42.4mm (11wk p). Is enlarged gs a sign of non viable p?

No: A crl of 4.6mm is approximately 6 weeks. If there is a normal fetal heartbeat, I wouldn't be concerned about the discrepancy in gestational sac size. Sometimes gestational sacs are elliptical in shape and will give a false size unless it is measured in 3 planes and a mean sac diameter is used. Also large gestational sacs are not associated with non-viability with a normal heartbeat. ...Read more

I had a u/s and there was two sacs and one baby the tech said the baby was 5.5 weeks but there was a shadow where the other baby would be twins still?

Depends: Could be what we call a vanishing twin. Some people get tricked by something called a uterine synechium. In either case, it sounds like there is one healthy baby in there. ...Read more

Scan @ 5+1 one sac with yolk etc but had another sac of fluid could it be twins? And one implanted later then other, & that's why 2nd wasn't visible

Possible: Could be twins, but not later implantation. Either they did not see the second sac right away because of the early gestation, or they misinterpreted the extra embryonic coelom as a second sac. ...Read more

I'm 6 weeks today is 56, 875 hgc level high, single or twin? I had an ectopic in june. I've had a scan could see sac in right place but see nothing else.

Have to wait: Since you are only 6 weeks it is too early to see. You will have to wait until next week when your doctor will likely want to repeat the sonogram. Then you will know if you have one or two. Trying to guess based on a HCG level does not work. ...Read more

Can being premature by two months and being a twin affect your growth?

Can being premature by two months and being a twin affect your growth?

Usually not: If you mean your growth as a 16 year old, most premies have " catch up growth", and are back on the standard growth curves by 2 to 3 years old. As long as the child doesn't have other issues, it usually doesn't effect the long term growth. ...Read more

Which type of surgeries would be performed to separate conjoined twins?

Which type of surgeries would be performed to separate conjoined twins?

Varies: Depends on the degree and site of joining. It can be as simple as a skin tube with a few vessels in it, to sharing internal organs and fusion of the crest of the skulls. The surgery to separate each in creases in complexity and sometimes would require the sacrifice of one for instance if there were only one brain or one heart. ...Read more

Empty sac at 6w3d HCG was 30000, 48hrs later hCG was 50000. BO or too early to tell? Twins?

Empty sac at 6w3d HCG was 30000, 48hrs later hCG was 50000. BO or too early to tell? Twins?

Empty sac: BO? The HCG rise in 48 hours was just over 66% which is a normal rise. One more beta-HCG in another 48 hours would be helpful to get a better sense of what is going on. Normal twin rise would be faster. Ultrasound done 7 days after the first one will solve the question. ...Read more

At 12 weeks scan the ultrasound technician saw that the baby has penetrated the empty sac of the vanishing twin. How can this be?

Had ultrasound at 6. 2 weeks one had heartbeat 122. Dr said was a twin other sac in ultrasound will I expel it empty sac or does it go away?

Had ultrasound at 6. 2 weeks one had heartbeat 122. Dr said was a twin other sac in ultrasound will I expel it empty sac or does it go away?

Dissolves: Commonly twin gestation turns into single one due to loss of one fetus. As long as this happens early, there is usually no consequences for the remaining fetus. The other one is reabsorbed. Usually this happens for a good reason, and may mean one is not healthy. You could not have prevented it or caused it either. Get followup U/S to make sure you baby is growing well inside you. Best wishes!! ...Read more

Early scan shows sac yolk and fluttering of baby hgc high, does baby usually be at other side of sac not next to yolk? Or is there poss twins?

Early scan shows sac yolk and fluttering of baby hgc high, does baby usually be at other side of sac not next to yolk? Or is there poss twins?

Twin ultrasound: In a twin ultrasound, there would be at least two fetal poles (future babies), two yolk sacs, and potentially two gestational sacs (the sac surrounding the baby). Beta HCG is extremely variable in early pregnancy. Typically a low number is more concerning. If there is reason for concern, your OB will continue to monitor by blood test and ultrasound. ...Read more

Fetus measuring 1.5 inches at 8 weeks. 1 yolk sac visible. Could it possibly be twins and only half of one was visible making it appear to be large?

Fetus measuring 1.5 inches at 8 weeks. 1 yolk sac visible. Could it possibly be twins and only half of one was visible making it appear to be large?

Unlikely: The fetus is much smaller than 1.5 inches at 8 weeks - although the entire fetal sac is much larger than the fetus itself. At 8 weeks there isn't much to see, but it's unlikely to be a twin pregnancy. ...Read more

7.5 wk preg. Gest sac w 2 round yolk sacs but only 1 other mass w 1 hrtbt. Dr says maybe twins! Confirm in 2 wks. Is this possible/do u agree? Explain

7.5 wk preg. Gest sac w 2 round yolk sacs but only 1 other mass w 1 hrtbt. Dr says maybe twins! Confirm in 2 wks. Is this possible/do u agree? Explain

Possible!: 2 yolk sacs is definitely suspicious for twins. There should only be one per baby. Sometimes you can start with twins, but one of them doesn't make it, so that's something to watch out for. The biggest concern would be that if both babies are in the same gestational sac, then you have a high risk twin pregnancy. (monoamniotic). So that's a condition you'd want to know about early on. ...Read more

At 12 weeks the ultrasound technician saw that my fetus has penetrated the empty sac of the vanishing twin. How could this be?

Good question: I am not sure what the ultrasound technician may have meant if he/she really stated the surviving fetus has penetrated the empty sac of the vanishing twin. If he/she is implying that the membranes of the vanishing twin are somehow wrapping around the surviving fetus, then this is a situation that you would want to have clarified by a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist. Discuss a referral. ...Read more

If I am having twins, will I have two placentas?

If I am having twins, will I have two placentas?

Depends--eggs, split: Twins from two eggs have two placentas (occasionally appear fused). Some twins from one egg have two and some have only one placental mass, even though there may be two amniotic sacs.
In the past placentas were evaluated at delivery. Now we can learn lots by ultrasound. Occasionally additional testing is needed after delivery to determine if one placental mass or two closely positioned placentas. ...Read more

My husband and I are married for 4 years I have two set of twins but my husband don't have any we just can't have any kids what to do?

Have him see his Dr: Start with a physical exam, basic lab tests and a complete semen analysis. If he checks out reproductively, then you will need to see your Gyn or be referred to a Fertility Medicine specialist for exam, blood tests and likely a hystero-salpingogram (HSG) to see if your system has changed. Good luck. ...Read more
