Symptoms of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome
Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome can develop without the pregnant woman presenting any symptoms. When they do manifest, the most common ones are:
Abdominal distension. There is an increase in abdominal volume at a notably quicker rate than during a normal pregnancy as it occurs in just a few days, plus it is often painful due to abdominal pressure.
Contractions. The increased amount of amniotic fluid in the recipient foetus’ sac can induce contractions, which are characterised by a feeling of abdominal pressure and hardening of the lower abdomen.
