Special twin pregnancy symptoms
We all know about the different symptoms that occur during pregnancy: difficulty to walk, sickness, moodiness, frequent bathroom visits. All of these, in addition to others, are somewhat more severe when you are pregnant with twins. This is because your hormone levels are higher than during a regular pregnancy. Also, the risk for different complications such as diabetes, pre-eclampsia and pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH), extra amniotic fluid (polyhydramnios), and iron deficiency anaemia is increased when pregnant with twins.
With all these additional symptoms, it comes as no surprise that you will likely need more rest when pregnant with twins. If you have trouble falling asleep at night, try reading a book, drinking warm milk, or meditating. If you still can’t fall asleep at night, use any moment you can to rest during the day. Ask relatives and friends for help with your house chores.
Caesarian section delivery
In order to minimize complications, a caesarian section delivery or an assisted delivery is very likely when twins are concerned.
