We just found out today and I am pretty much in a state of shock. I have found the Monoamniotic.org boards which look to be very helpful, but I was wondering if there where any moms here who also had momotwins.

There is at least one mama here who had mo-mo twins -- I think her siggy says "miracle monoamniotic girls". I am not the best at searching, though...

I am sending you best wishes for a safe pregnancy and the arrival of healthy little ones. How far along are you? Did you find out twins and mo-mo on the same day? Good luck, mama, and congrats on your pregnancy (as nervewracking as it will likely be).::

Hi! I'm the one with momo twin girls. I'm glad you found monoamniotic.org, I think that's the absolute best resource for momo moms out there. The ladies (and few gents) there are so supportive and so very, very well-informed.

How far along are you? Have you had a high-resolution ultrasound yet and/or seen a perinatologist? If you haven't yet, there's a high possibility you've been misdiagnosed; it's really easy to miss the barrier of the amniotic sac in a routine ultrasound.

I'm PM'ing you too.

But, congratulations! I know how terrified you are. DON'T read statistics anywhere except at monoamniotic.org, because most of the stats floating around the net are old and scary.

Don't get me wrong: the odds are still scary with good treatment, but they're not as bad as they used to be.

It's a scary journey, but it doesn't have to be a tragic one. Keep up the hope, be excited about your babies, get informed, and hang in there! It's quite a ride, but you can do it.

Was this the u/s with the perinatologist that you had Monday? Like I said in your first thread, we were told at first that ours were mo/mo and thought so for a week but then when we had a high resolution ultrasound with a peri they found a membrane (which was then visible on all our subsequent u/s). I think that is a pretty common story.

Anyway I'm assuming you found out with a visit to a peri, since you mentioned before that you'd be getting a better u/s. I wish you all the best. I agree on not reading all the scary stats. It really seems like they aren't true anymore. It's certainly serious, but it's not immediately bad news. {{{hugs}}} and

mama tigress - this was from the peri on Monday. It couldn't be more definite. The boys were hugging . It was the sweetest site I have ever seen, but another very clear indication that the membrane they were looking hard to find is not there.

I am trying to take it one day at a time and stay healthy and strong for them. Thank you all for your hugs and support.

The picture of your two boys hugging sounds amazing. Stay strong and positive, mama. We're all cheering for you. I hope that you have care providers that you trust to do the best they can for you and your little ones.
