If you’re pregnant with two or more babies, congratulations from 4D Scan! This occurs when two eggs are released and fertilized (fraternal twins) or when one fertilized egg splits (identical twins).
You have a higher chance of multiple pregnancies if you have a maternal family history; you are over the age of 35; you have had fraternal twins before; if you are on hormone therapy or have had In-vitro fertilization (IVF); or if you are of African descent.
Signs of a multiple pregnancy:
· When you have your blood tested, the HCG levels may be extremely high.
· You may have exaggerated symptoms (extreme nausea - hyperemesis).
