Im a momo twin and we are both alive and well at age 34. These are just POSSIBLE risks but do not always happen.

I had mono di twins and we were worried about TTTS (one baby taking more than the other) as well. I was told to drink Carnation Instant Breakfast twice a day for the protein and vitamins. Studies have shown that increasing these cut down the risk of TTTS, or even reversed it if it had started. I carried to 37 weeks, and they were born at a healthy 5 lbs. 11 oz. And 6 lbs. 3 oz. I also had a lot of ultrasounds and dr appointment after 20 weeks, so be prepared. If your drs don't schedule an ultrasound at least every 2 weeks, insist on it. It's a huge pain to go that often, but it will definitely put your mind at ease and catch it early if there is something wrong. Good luck!

Sorry to hear about that. I am sure it is very hard for you. Have you done any research or anything online or msybe even going to your local library to find some books about it? There is a website called Mayo Clinic that may have some information for you. I think the address is www.mayoclinic.com. Hope things will get better which I am sure they will. Just have convidence.
