Being blessed with twins is definitely the most exciting news you can possibly receive. Now that you have two babies growing inside you waiting to be brought into this world, keep in mind that the risk of challenges and complications will also increase.
As we all know no matter how exhilarating the news is, research reveals that having twins can be quite hectic and challenging as there will be two babies to take care of. Having twins can also lead to some severe complications that need to be managed with care and consideration. Twin pregnancies can give rise to more complications as compared to singleton pregnancies.
Here are some of the worst complications that twin pregnancies can trigger:
1. Morning Sickness
We are all aware that morning sickness is a symptom that we all suffer during pregnancy. Feeling excessively nauseous due to morning sickness is not just confined to the mornings, but in fact, some mothers experience this symptom almost throughout their days, during the first few months. In the case of twin pregnancy, this symptom tends to aggravate and heighten. Needless to say, this is the most exhaustive downside of twin pregnancies.
2. Weight Gain
It is an established fact that women gain weight during pregnancy, and the weight they can gain is not definitive because the weight gain tends to vary from one pregnancy to the other. While some women do not gain a lot of weight, some gain more than usual. In simpler words, it is difficult to predict the weight gain with a one-fits-all spectrum.
However, when a women is having twins, research reveals that she is likely to gain more weight than the women giving birth to one baby. This happens primarily because the mother is not only carrying the weight of two babies, but also, the weight of the extra fluids, tissue, uterine growth and the increased blood volume needed to supply the placentas with the nourishment for both the babies.
