Solace Women's Care is a comprehensive practice that offers personalized care to our clients that need high risk obstetrics in a comforting setting. Pregnancy is a wonderful time but it can be stressful as well, especially if you find that you've been doubly blessed and are carrying twins. Our doctors strive to offer the best care possible and help to ease any concerns that might be present from confirmation of pregnancy through delivery of your twin babies. Your health care provider might recommend more check ups than if you were carrying one baby. This is to more closely monitor the health of the babies.
To keep your energy up, eat healthy and gently exercise, but discuss diet and exercise with your doctor before beginning anything new. Your doctor will be able to advise you every step of the way.
Twin Pregnancy Symptoms
While carrying twins is double the joy it also means that you need comprehensive care as twins do present as a higher risk pregnancy. Schedule an appointment with Solace Women's Care to receive proper prenatal care and monitoring to ensure the health of both mommy and babies.
Symptoms of a twin pregnancy is very similar to a single pregnancy, but you may find yourself getting tired easily and putting on more weight than you would with a single pregnancy. The added progesterone in your body might leave you short of breath. Later in the pregnancy you might suffer from back pain and muscle strain as well as constipation, heartburn, indigestion and bloating. Only your doctor can tell you if you're carrying twins. Complications are rare, and moms with twins are more likely to deliver through cesarean, but many still deliver vaginally.
Additionally, women carrying twins might have an increased risk of high blood pressure, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes or anemia, so increased tests are recommended. If you have any questions about carrying twins, contact Solace Women's Care for an appointment.
