Conjoined or "just" monoamniotic? - Page 2

post #21 of 41
x- I know that you are tired and there is so much conflicting information that you are being given. When is your next appointment?
post #22 of 41

My second set of twins actually looked very similar in their first u/s.  My doctor also thought they were monoamniotic but a second u/s a few weeks later revealed a thin dividing membrane.  It was impossible to see at our first u/s and I spent a lot of time staring at the pictures too, trying to see something between the babies.  I'm hoping that's the case for you as well!  Hang in there!

My follow up u/s is Wednesday, August 8th (as long as work doesn't send me on another trip!) I've decided their full of **it. I don't see conjoined at all. I don't even see how they possibly could be. They might very well be monoamniotic since they only saw one yolk sac at the very first u/s at 7 weeks. (They also only saw one baby.)

I'll update after the u/s. Thanks again everyone. I love MDC.

Sorry about the delay. Yes, I got sent on a business trip. And, I started thinking about it and thought that the best plan would be to skip the regular OB and go straight to a MFM Specialist. I contacted some fellow Chicagoans at Monamniotic.org and they recommended this one doc. So, I called his office up and they're seeing me this Thursday. I just want some answers and I don't think the regular OB had the ability to give me those answers. So, it's another wait, but I keep telling myself it doesn't change anything anyways.

Work is sending me on another trip, but I'll be back on time for this appointment. I'll certainly post when I know something.

They are NOT conjoined! But, they are definitively monoamniotic. They are growing right on schedule. I'm 11w2d, they are 11w3d and 11w4d. Both had heartbeats of 170.

I'll try to post a picture. I was completely preparing myself for bad news, that I'm not sure what to do with good news. I guess I just need to let it sink in a while.

It must be such a huge relief to have some answers.  At least you can plan where to go from here and get more information.  Very happy to hear that babies are doing well!
