    Hi Anooch,

    First of all congrats on having twins. Hopefully Pmahensa has cleared your doubt.I too have twins and went through all the same things you are going through.Just pray and have faith.

    I don’t feel your Doctors have clearly explained to you everything.In case of twins it is difficult to get clear readings, as one of the baby is usually on top of the other .In between 11<SUP>th</SUP> to 14<SUP>th</SUP> weeknuchal transulency test is done.They also check for the nasal bone and the blood test.These are not conclusive ,so then Amnio is done.Amnio is done usually after 15<SUP>th</SUP> week as the baby starts to urinate into the amniotic fluid and placenta takes full control.

    My husband was not willing to go through this test but I wanted to.I was not ready to take the stress throughout my pregnancy.Everything will be fine.

    Take care
    Priyanka

Be strong and all our IL's support and prayers are there with you... i got relief and support after reading the posts here. take care..<br>
