Occasionally, unusual events happen during fertilization or at an early stage of a twin pregnancy that leads to unique twins. You’re going to need tiny onesies. Though there’s no guarantee, it’s likely that your twins will be on the smaller side. Your healthcare provider options are more limited.

Moms carrying twins are at higher risk for premature birth, high blood pressure, and—especially in the case of identical twins—fetal abnormalities. And since twins are often born earlier, many. One placenta and two amniotic sacs. In pregnancies with one placenta and two amniotic sacs, you will definitely have identical twins.

Additionally, when your babies share a placenta, there is a greater risk for complications, such as twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. Identical twins are less common than fraternal because identical twins require the splitting of a single fertilized egg, which is rare. Fraternal twins occur when two separate eggs are fertilized. A twin or multiple pregnancy may cause the mother’s uterus to expand beyond the range of a single pregnancy.

However, other factors may also increase the measurements. This measurement is more difficult earlier in pregnancy than later on, when an ultrasound may have already detected the.

Monozygotic twins ought to be identical because they originate from the same ovum fertilized by a single sperm, but separate into two zygotes during the first thirteen days, whereas fraternal (dizygotic) twins are formed when two eggs are fertilized by two sperm.

  • My parents were expecting to have fraternal twins which one will be a boy and the other be a girl (me). However, when I was born, I was born as a boy so that makes me and my brother identical twins. So does make a mistake?

  • So that’s why my cousin, who was born blond and her identical twin sister was also born and still is blond, turned brunette during her later teen years

    I mean, I kind of already knew identical twins weren’t exactly the same in terms in phenotype, but now I know the reason

  • I have an almost 15 month old son, and I am 38 weeks along with our next baby, so I can completely relate to this video.
    Also, I had the PUPPS rash at about 35 weeks my last pregnancy as well, and it is so terrible! The worst thing ever. It took several weeks for it to go away, so I’m looking forward to not having to deal with that as part of recovery!

  • I am pregnant with my third child and she’s a girl. I have a rash that started at 31 weeks and I am not 33 weeks and still have it. It’s so horrible

  • aww thank you for your honesty. I was the same way, I would pray throughout the day to keep me going for the kids!! its hard but thank goodness you have a husband!:)

  • Same me,my boy 2 years 6month years..now im 6 month pregnant but not same like my belly before..its 6 month..but it look big then before…i dont twin or single bby

  • Am often sick in the morning and I don’t rep at night, am mostly tired and angry but I don’t vomit, I have shortness of breathe and my tummy looks quite big for 8/7 weeks headaches kill me am I having twins?

  • I’m praying for one baby next time for myself because I want to see what that’s like:) I think I will totally be able to relate to appreciating fewer doctors appointments. I remember that being one of the things that I didn’t like with my twins. I just wanted to crawl under a rock until they were born and not make a big deal out of everything but like always my husband was the voice of reason lol. I was incredibly blessed because my twin pregnancy was actually very easy aside from having gestational diabetes and getting so big in the tummy. We made it to 38 weeks:-).

  • Im a fraternal twin i i think everbody should know this cause i haved so many people ask this (even adults) thank you for making this video

  • My daughter had twins that shared one placenta and one amniotic sack, after developing tts and having surgery whilst in the womb, they were born at 32 weeks. Their umbilical cords looked like they had been weaved like a basket, anyway we have two very healthy and happy girls. Thanks to The Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne Australia. This was completely free medical service, we are so fortunate in Australia with our health system..

  • Turned 36 weeks as from today! (Wednesday 6th) and every Wednesday I watch your video for the same week I am at.. so nice to see such a positive person and give off so many positive vibes! I’m already excited but these videos get me hyped up!! ��
