Twins bring twice as much luck to their parents. They can also cause twice as much headache.
A pair of identical twin sisters have been seen apparently fighting with each other while they were still in their mother's womb.
In the trending video from China, the two fetuses seemed to kick each other and hit each other because their mother had undergone an ultrasound scan at four months pregnant.
The father of the twins, 28-year-old Mr. Tao, said the footage was filmed by him when he accompanied his wife to a prenatal investigation in the city of Yinchuan at the end of last year.
Mr. Tao told Chinese newspaper article The Paper that he thought it was funny to box his unborn daughters apparently & # 39; several times & # 39; to see playing.
He filmed the footage before uploading it to the short video app Douyin. The video quickly went viral.
Tao said he didn't expect his girls to be internet stars before they were born.
The naughty girls were born healthy and were given the nicknames & # 39; Cherry & # 39; and & # 39; Strawberry & # 39; – after their mother's favorite fruit.
Amused father, Mr. Tao, has filmed the footage of the ultrasound scan, which apparently causes the pair of his twin daughters to box together for a few laps. The girls were born healthy in China
The footage has received more than 2.5 million likes and 80,000 responses so far.
It was also widely shared by Chinese news broadcasts such as China Daily.
An amused spectator joked about Douyin: & The one who wins [the fight] can be the oldest when they are born. & # 39;
Another commented: & # 39; They are fighting in it [their mother’s] but will love each other when they are born & # 39 ;.
Mr. Tao added that he saw his twin daughters cuddling during another check in January.
He said he saw one of them apparently hugging the other when his wife went through an amniotic fluid test.
& # 39; We were so moved. The babies were so small and they knew how to take care of each other. I believe they will live in harmony with each other when they grow up & # 39 ;, Tao told The Paper.
According to the father, his daughters shared the same fruit bag and placenta in his wife.
The Chinese sisters (file photo), nicknamed & # 39; Cherry & # 39; and & # 39; Strawberry & # 39 ;, shared the same fruit bag and the placenta in their mother. They are known as Mo-Mo twins, which are rare and occur in around 1 in 35,000 to 1 in 60,000 pregnancies.
Known as monochorial monoamniotic twins or Mo-Mo twins, it is one of the highest possible risks of twin pregnancies. There is only a 50 percent chance that the baby's will survive after the 26-week mark.
The biggest risk with this pregnancy is that the umbilical cord – which is separated – becomes tangled and knotted, leading to a reduced blood flow to one or both babies.
Mo-Mo twins are rare and occur in around 1 in 35,000 to 1 in 60,000 pregnancies, according to TwinsUK.
Fortunately, & # 39; Cherry & # 39; and & # 39; Strawberry & # 39; born healthy on April 8 after 32 weeks via caesarean section.
The eldest brother / sister was born at 2:51 am, weighing 1,950 grams (4lb 5oz) and the younger was born a minute later, weighing 1,620 grams (3lb 9oz), Yangzhou Evening News reported.
Doctors at the General Hospital of Ningxia Medical University said an emergency operation was planned after nurses saw that one of the twins' heartbeats suddenly dropped.
During the operation they found that a large part of their umbilical cord had become entangled.
He Lin, a deputy director of the hospital's obstetric ward, told reporters: “The babies are born safe and healthy. It is their parents' fortune and my fortune. They are the first pair of Mo-Mo twins that our hospital has successfully delivered. & # 39;
