3. Spotting is more frequent in twin pregnancies
Experts have deduced that the mother of twins and triplets have a higher risk of miscarriages because spotting is found to be more frequent in these types of pregnancies. Spotting during the early months of pregnancy is quite serious because in majority of the cases, miscarriages typically happen during this time period of the pregnancy.
Also, minimal spotting without experiencing any cramps or blood clots is harmless and not something to be stressing about. It is a normal occurrence in twin pregnancies, but you should immediately seek medical assistance if the bleeding is prolonged, and accompanied by cramps and blood clots.
4. The occurrence of adverse nausea is common in twin pregnancies
The increasing level of the hormone chorionic gonadotropin is the culprit behind that awful sensation of vomiting and nausea you have to go through every morning during the early stages of pregnancy.
If you are expecting twins, you should be prepared for a much more dreadful kind of morning sickness, however, the positive side of it is that it does not carry out for a much longer period of time.
Doctors also believe that the symptoms of suffering headaches, back pains and difficulty in sleeping tend to be more common in women having twin than women having one child. There’s also a higher risk of having maternal anemia and post-partum hemorrhage (bleeding) after delivery for the mother giving birth to twins.
5. Regular Sessions for Close Observation
In the case of twin pregnancies, mothers are likely to be given slightly more attention as compared to the mothers of singleton pregnancies. They are monitored multiple times during a month, and they require more ultrasounds to be conducting in short intervals in order to observe the development of the babies. Since the risk factors are typically higher, doctors have to be more careful with these pregnancies.
