The following fetal complications of twin pregnancies can be diagnosed by pregnancy ultrasound.They increase the chance of delivering or needing to deliver before reaching term.Close monitoring by your OB doctor will keep track of the health and growth of your babies and the best timing of your delivery.
This compares to an increased risk after 42 weeks (post term) for singleton pregnancies.The recommendation for when to deliver depends in part on whether the twins are in a single or separate sacs - diagnosable by early ultrasound.But, being addicted to being identical comes at a price. One of the twins said, "I meet a great guy and I'm like, 'Hey, got someone for my twin sister? '"These identical twins say they belong together forever.The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia said its surgeons had separated conjoined twins 23 times over the past 60 years, but this was the first time children joined by the top of their heads had been involved."Separating conjoined twins is a very complex surgery followed by a long and complicated recovery, but we are very hopeful for a positive outcome," said Dr Jesse Taylor, the plastic surgeon who helped lead the team.Conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel have become household names ever since they let the media into their unique lives.
While the twins share the same body, they have several organs that are separate, including: 1.Strong aftershocks rippled through Chile after a magnitude 8.3 earthquake that killed at least eight people and slammed powerful waves into coastal towns, forcing more than a million people from their homes.The government ordered evacuations from coastal areas after the powerful quake hit, seeking to avoid a repeat of a quake disaster in 2010 when authorities were slow to warn of a tsunami that killed hundreds.Based on a review of several studies of twin pregnancies published in 2016 in the British Medical Journal, the babies are higher risk for poor delivery outcomes including the following: When one twin is born prematurely because of preterm labor or preterm rupture of the membranes, the goal is to try to delay the delivery of the second twin as long as possible.There are no large studies on how long the second twin can survive in the uterus after the birth of the first, but case reports range from a few days to weeks.Carrying twins comes with special concerns beyond those of a singleton pregnancy.
