Hi ladies, I'm new here and a mommy to one beautiful 2 year old little girl. hubby and i tried for a year for our second and i found out in october i was pregnant. I had a 6 week scan at my ob office which showed one healthy little baby with heartbeat. On wednesday I went to the perinatologist office to have my nuchal translucency scan since I'm over 35. Imagine my suprise when the tech told me I was having 2 babies I was shocked. the doc came in told me they look good and they were in 1 sac (no seperating membrane) and 1 placenta (identical) Of course I really didn't understand what this all meant. He said because of this there was a high risk of the cords getting entrwined but they had alot of success with these type twins went put on inpateint monitoring at 24-26 weeks. When I got home I started research all this on the web and am now petrified I will loose my babies prior to going into the hospital. I don't even want to start to buy stuff or prepare because I'm afraid I'll jinx myslef. Has anyone been through this or going through this? I feel like I'm loosing my mind but can't help but stop worrying. I have a follow up scan in 1 month again (16) weeks with my perinatologist. I feel liek I cna't wait that long but I'm hoping maybe they will find a sac on the scan the second time around. we'll would love to hear from you all. thanks so much in advance.
