NTT

I have fraternal twins too. They wren't able to give me a trisomy #, but my down's numbers were similar. They are good numbers, esp if you look at odds based on age, health conditions, etc. The NTT reading can really vary by who is measuring-within a few millimeters. Every sonographer can measure ju...

placenta

high beta

it really doesn't mean anything if its a high beta #. I had a high beta with last pregnancies and not so high with this one, which I have twins. Its not been proven.

Congrats on BFP!

Bleeding is apparantly very normal with twin pregnancies, as I learned from my research. I am sorry B isn't growing and that you may loose him. It is never a...

bedrest

i have never heard of this before. In fact, I am on bedrest at 26 1/2 weeks on recommendation from perinatologists, but this isn't standard for them. Did they say you are at risk for pre-term labor? I know about 10 other friends and family members who carried twins (some IVF, most natural twins) and...

shortened cervix/bed rest at 27 weeks

HI!

Anyone else out there been told they have a short cervix (not dialating) and now on bedrest? I went in for a cervical lengthening and its shrunk to 1cm (should be over 2.5cm). Now I am on bedrest the rest of the pregnancy.

Any successful outcomes of carrying to term (i have twins).

TIA

Doc response

No, the Doc said worst, worst case and best case. Could be something or nothing. Was looking more for other's experiences and their outcomes on what could happen.
