I just found out that our little ones are mono/mono. Ever since I found out, and researched this, I have done nothing but cry. I have taken the focus off the joy of my new little blessings and I have focused on so many neg. things. I know to stay positive but it is so hard. We where told we would not be able to have any more children, then to find out it twins! to only found out afterwards mono/mono. I feel no one understands all the risk we are facing. People are saying congrats, and I just want to scream. I need people to talk to that understands this situation. Thanks

Also does anyone know, I have been trying to find out if a level 2 ultrasound can misdiagnose a mono mono pregnancy. I was 12 weeks with my first us and the tech thought she may have seen a very thin line, she showed me and I to seen it, then I went at 14 weeks for a level 2 and they did not find it, could a level 2 be wrong. Thanks!

Welcome and congratulations! smile I know you're tired of hearing that, and so was I.
I'm not sure about whether or not the level 2 could be wrong, but I've read several posts on here where they didn't find a membrane until 15 or 16 weeks at a Perinatalogist, so I won't say that it's not possible.

I found out at 15 1/2 wks that there was not a membrane, and I had the same reaction, as we all did. I cried for days and just wondered daily if they were ok. I know everybody tells you to be positive, and I'll agree and say the same thing. Try your best NOT to focus on the negatives and really only read the positive success stories. I tell you, they really helped me! I have finally come to the conclusion that until 24 weeks, there is absolutely nothing I can do but keep myself healthy and take my vitamins for my girls smile You will find MANY success stories on this site that will give you hope. If you believe in prayer, pray hard. I'm leaving the safety of my little girls in God's hands, because I know that I have no control at this point.

The odds of 50/50 are so outdated, and are much higher now with monitoring beginning at 24 wks. The facts that my Perinatalogist gave me really put the odds in my favor. He said that in his experience that out of 200 mono babies, that 140 will go home. I'll take that as good news! I surround myself with positive people who believe that this pregnancy will go great, and believe me...it rubs off on me! I become more and more optimistic at each of my dr.'s appts. when I see my little girls' heartbeats.

You'll find tons of support on here, and you'll get your questions answered. It's a wonderful site for support and encouragement!

Best of Luck to you and SMILE! smile You're a twin mommy already smile

WELCOME and CONGRATS!! I do remember those days of no one around me understanding and no one really making an effort to understand. This website was a lifesaver for me and I hope it will be that same for you.

Thanks to both of you! Today seemed a little better, as I am realizing their is not alot I can do. I have just been researching about the best time to go inpaitent, and the best goal for delivery. I was wondering on if anyone knows how likely it is for a women to reach her 24 weeks, is the knoting more likely before or after this mark. And again thanks for this site!

Welcome and big congrats mlm!!

The best thing you can do is stay positive and healthy for those lil babas so they can continue to grow strong. You've been chosen as the special carrier for these little gifts and you just need to take it easy and look after yourself.

Knotting happens quiet early on, I believe. I'm 19 weeks now and as far as I'm aware my doc says it has happened already and normally happens from 12 weeks onwards.. But I see two healthy heart beats every Tuesday morning at my weekly appointments and that's good enough for me for now smile

Take care xxxx

My Dr. is not seeing me everyweek, infact I dont go back for over two weeks, I feel as if It would be better though if I could go weekly and see the heartbeats as well. I am going to call them today!!

You should call them and request weekly appointments, you are your babies advocats!!

From 24 weeks I get monitored 3 times a week, and then we discuss what week to go inpatient..have yet to have that chat with my consultant smile

I do not know the stats of making it past 24 weeks. I can tell you that usually the knots/twists happen early on, but risk for compression and the knots getting tighter is higher later in the pregnancy. Choosing when to go inpatient is such a personal decision. I wanted 24 weeks, but ended up having to wait until 26.

SO I called my Dr. and she got me in this morning. I got to hear the lil ones heart beat, one was at 155 but the other baby was moving to much to get a good steady heartbeat, but I did hear it! I will be 15 weeks on Thursday, and it feels like it has been years (Only 5 days!) since we found out! but I know that God is in control of my babies, not me!!!! I had a better day today, and I am accepting what I have been given!!
