M twins were monochorionic diamniotic or MoDi. They shared a placenta, but had their own sac inside of the placenta. This made it safer because their umbilical cords could not wrap around each other. The first week I was pregnant they thought I may be pregnant with MoMo twins, meaning in the same sac. It was very scary. I was immediately referred to a High-Risk Specialist. I saw my regular OB as often as a normal pregnancy. I saw my specialist every 2 weeks. We ran into some issues with fluid levels and I saw her every 10 days. I was told to to think of my OB as my doctor to keep me healthy and my specialist was the babies doctor to keep them healthy.
I was ridiculously sick the first trimester. I lost a total of 10 pounds. My doctor's were not worried about my weight loss. I slept the entire trimester. I would get home from teaching and go to sleep.
Second trimester was AMAZING! I felt much better, and was able to function like a normal person!
At 27 weeks my cervix shortened dramatically from 3.7 cm to 2.4 cm. Anything less than 2.5 at this gestation is a concern. I was admitted into The Woman's Hospital. It was a shock, but I was willing to do whatever it takes to keep them baking. We had an amazing experience in the antepartum unit of the hospital. My husband and I lived there for 10 weeks. He spent every night with a few exceptions with me. He slept on a tiny couch.
Ultrasounds... after 14 weeks the boys were so big they were not clear enough to see something that would be worth posting.

My boys spent 10 days in the NICU learning how to drink their bottles. They were perfectly healthy. It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life to leave them and go home. My c-section recovery was not bad at all. I did not need extra help, and I was able to walk to the NICU within 2 days of delivery.
