Yes, when there is a twin pregnancy, that is to say, the development of several babies inside the uterus means a greater effort for the mother's organism. This means that there is an increase in the usual discomfort of pregnancy and also numerous risks, such as pre-eclampsia, diabetes, anemia, overweight, etc.
Is the discomfort greater in a twin pregnancy than in a normal pregnancy?
