Description

The patient was a 33-year-old, highly educated, white female. She was pregnant with monochorionic-diamniotic identical twins, or twins that shared the same placenta but were in separate amniotic sacs. She had been cleared from her reproductive endocrinologist at 13 weeks gestation after an ultrasound indicated the pregnancy was progressing typically. The patient was referred back to her primary obstetrician, along with her pregnancy records, for the remainder of her prenatal care. She had multiple appointments over the next few weeks during which the fetuses’ heartbeats were examined. The patient mentioned she was having some periodic, light contractions but otherwise all was normal.
