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

I am 15 weeks pregnant having twins. One twin is healthy and is crl measures 80mm and other twin crl measures 45mm and has no aminotic fluid. Pls adv
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?
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

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: 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?
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?
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
Is it possible for the gest sac to measure a week larger early in the first trimester? Could it be larger due to twins? How common are mistakes?
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
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
Faternal twins if something happens to 1 twin at 20 wks would there be blood or signs I feel movement but I'm not sure if it's both of them?
No way to guess: From this question. You would not necessarily feel or see anything. If you are concerned something has happened, you need to be seen and be checked. Good luck! ...Read more
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
