We were also advised that we were likely to have more scans later in the pregnancy and to speak to my midwife regarding any health concerns.

With this milestone completed, I now felt it was time for me to get on and start enjoying being pregnant.

After I started to get abdominal pains at only eight weeks’ pregnant, we were convinced it had all gone wrong again. So when the doctor scanning us said he’d found a heartbeat and then a couple of minutes later found a second one, we were elated.

The midwife, Andy and I just hugged each other and cried.

With monochorionic twins, the sonographer looks for differences in growth (growth discordancy) and increased nuchal translucency measurements—a discrepancy may indicate Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS).

They will also look at where the umbilical cords joins the placenta (placental insertions), and will identify the membrane and compare sac sizes.

Rescanning in a week or two may reveal a second heartbeat, or the scan may show that one sac is growing and the other still empty.

The 12-week scan date arrived and we were incredibly nervous but also very excited to see our babies.

When you find out you are pregnant with twins, triplets or having a higher order multiple birth like quadruplets or even quintuplets, your first instinct may be to wonder if there's room in there for more than one baby!

We try to answer some of the first questions expectant multiple birth parents& ;ask about ante-natal treatment are care for twins and multiple pregnancy.

Until modern techniques such as ultrasound became a part of antenatal care, most women didn't learn that they were pregnant with twins until they were in labour. People typically discover they're having twins during a routine scan, often in the first trimester.

Ultrasound is almost foolproof at diagnosing twins, but the greater the number of babies, the less accurate the ability to detect how many there are.

It's possible to see twins (or more) on a scan at around six weeks, though one baby may be missed at this early stage.

Sometimes a heartbeat is seen in one sac, but not in the other.

If you are diagnosed as carrying monochorionic (MC) twins, whether they have two separate amniotic sacs (diamniotic) or share one sac (monoamniotic), your pregnancy will be considered as high-risk, and you can expect to have more frequent scans.

The following scans are recommended for Monochorionictwins: All pregnant women are given information about screening tests for birth defects (congenital abnormalities), such as Down syndrome, spina bifida or physical abnormalities.

so that your blood pressure and urine can be checked for signs of pre-eclampsia and diabetes.

and other common conditions such as anaemia can be detected.
