    Default What are they?!? Photos attached

    Okay so when I first had a scan I was very "softly" diagnosed with monochrionic monoamniotic twins... they both appeared to share the same amnion sac and same placenta but that was all she could tell me. Now it appears at 8 weeks they have their own placentas (ones on the left on on the right so its easy apparently to tell now) However they said now they have their own amnion sac in the same chlorion. (Please dont hate me for my dodgy spelling. But does anyone know what they're called. The sonographer wrote diamniotic but im still confused as there are many combos and diamniotic isnt a full combo.... Ive attached pics the grainy photo is the first one at 6w6d

    My understanding is they share a placenta but have their own sac

    She confused me because she said something about only my right ovary released an egg. They have their own placentas and their own amnion (apparently thin membrane sac) but one chlorion..

    I should know that as I was diagnosed with monochorionic/monoamniotic twins.

    As long as the twins don't share a sac, then they should be ok.
