7 weeks 6 days pregnant, first early scan done yesterday due to some faint bleeds, two same sized tiny heart beats in there, was thrilled to pieces not knowing anything about different types of twin pregnancies...
Read the report written for me to give to my Dr and MW and it reads that 'suggested monochorionic monoamniotic pregnancy' 'to be reviewed'.
Absolutely petrified having been online and researching MOMO twin pregnancies.
I'm aware a membrane to indicate separate sacs may be found at a later date still as may just be too faint to see at the moment?
But if not, does anyone have any positive MOMO twin advice/stories to make me feel a little less stressed/negative? sad sad sad

Hi salsasalsa, congratulations!
I can't advise on your potential MOMO twins as mine were non identical, but hopefully some other twin parents will be along soon.
All I would say is relax, stop googling (I know I know, very hard not to) and if you are going to, look at places like TAMBA for accurate information.
You may also find there is a local twins club you can join on Facebook to ask other twin parents.
Twins are amazing, I wish you all the best with your pregnancy

Thank you for your reply. And thank you, I am excited as much as I am petrified. I have seen the TAMBA site I think I will have to look at it a bit better later.
Last night I had a scare, sharp stabbing pains in my left side, and a small amount of faint red blood on wiping?
I don't suppose anyone with twin pregnancies has had anything similar and all has been ok?
Today I've felt ok, just a few brown spots of old blood from last night im guessing.
They weren't keen on doing another scan when I rang the hospital as I only had an early one two days ago. sad very worried.

I had spotting on and off throughout the first 12 weeks, I think it's fairly common. I'm a bit surprised that they didn't want you to come in though. Maybe make an appointment with your gp if it's still happening by Tuesday?

Yeah I wouldn't have thought anything anout the amount of blood seeing as it was a one off, it was just the fact it was with the stabbing pains in my left. Hoping it's fine - they said the reason for not scanning was because I had one two days before and all was well, but surely they would have been able to detect the heart beats again if anything had or hadn't happened. I am a bit angry but will just have to hope I don't have anything until Tuesday with the midwife, and hope that the other day's pain and bleeding was something normal sad xx

I don't have any experience with MCMA twins as mine as DCDA but I will say please stop googling.

I had horrendous abdominal pain with no bleeding at 5 weeks, went to the GP who was a complete arse and said i was having a mc and to take painkillers till it passed. I then went from week 5 to week 12 convinced my scan would show nothing only to see my twins.

Googling had me in an awful panic and I know it's really difficult but try and stay positive, speak to the MW on Tuesday and always phone with any concerns.

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! My twins are 8 months old now, it goes by in a flash!

Thank you, I do know I shouldn't be looking anything up sad isn't it weird you spend all that time worrying about getting pregnant, then when you are you worry about staying pregnant, now I'm worried about the type of pregnancy and getting through all these pains and niggles and bleeds until the next scan, it's tough stuff xx

I'm sure I read that if you've seen heartbeats then your chances of miscarriage as very low. I know it's difficult, but try to relax. I really regret that I spent all of my pregnancy stressing out about things that never even happened rather than enjoying what should have been a special time.

Hello, I am now 9 +4, and waiting on a call from MW today about another early scan this week at some point. I can't believe I've spent almost two weeks now just not knowing whats going on in there sad I haven't had any signs to say otherwise other than the sharp left hand side pains and light bleed the day after my first scan. Most days I still feel pregnant, others not so much. I just want another scan but at the same time I'm terrified at what they may or may not find... My partner is getting so frustrated that I can't allow myself to be excited sad It's just so early, and the pains and bleed have me constantly worried. My 12 week scan isn't booked for until I will be 14 weeks, I just feel so blank and worried and time is going so slowly. I have bled after sex over the weekend but I think that's normal? And then still this worry about if they are okay and could potentially be mono mono sad I just want to be happy and excited x
