For those of you ladies with twins/triplets-Do you see a perinatologist/high risk OB? Or do you see a regular OB? Just curious, my gestational carrier is pregnant with twins and I'm trying to figure out if she should be seen by a perinatologist? She also has gestational diabetes already at 9 1/2 weeks, but got it around 5 weeks. Thanks, Carisa
I just had twins and I saw my regular OB throughout my whole pregnancy, and she had me also see a perinatologist for monthly ultrasounds since I was considered a high-risk pregnancy. I can't advise you about the gestational diabetes though. Good luck!
i dont know about multiples but i have GD. i was just wondering what they are having her do about it. im having trouble regulating mine so im trying to get some ideas of how other people keep it under control.
Hi Carisa, As you know I have triplets on the way. I am being seen strictly by a perinatologist, being seen every other Thurs from the start. I think most twin pregnancies are followed by an ob, however, if you read certain books (such as When You are Expecting Twins, Trips, or Quads) you really will understand that even with twins there is a significantly increased risk of preterm labor and many other issues when compared with a singleton pregnancy. The book clearly recommends a twin pregnancy be overseen by a specialist. But it seems that a PN used in conjunction with an OB would be reasonable. Good luck and hope things are going well with your little ones!!!
