Momo Twins?

today I went to a series of doctor appointments were we were going to find out if our twins were in one sac. We found out that they are. They are called Monoamnionic Twins.

What are MoMo Twins?
The term describes twins that are monochorionic and monoamniotic, that is, there is a single chorion and a single amniotic sac. The amniotic sac is the bag of waters that contains the fetus, while the chorion is the outer membrane. These are monozygotic twins that develop from a single egg/sperm combination which splits into two. When the split is delayed, usually a week or so after conception, the process of growing a placenta, chorion and amniotic sac has already begun, and the two embroys will develop within a single, shared sac. Only about 1% of twin pregnancies will occur in this manner. The majority of monozygotic twins will develop with separate sacs, or sometimes with separate amnions within a shared chorion.

We were disappointed to find out that they were momo twins but are exited that they are identical twins and we also found out that they will be BOYS!!!

I will have to be referred to a perinatologist (obstetrician specializing in high risk pregnancies), here in Tucson instead of my really good Doctor, Dr. Layton up in Gilbert.

Keep the twinies in your prayers!!!
