Rare ‘mono mono’ twins progressing in Ohio (Video)

Ohio’s rare mono mono twins that made headlines around the world when they were born holding hands, have been making good progress and will soon be able to leave hospital.

Their father says Jenna and Jillian Thistlethwaite are both now taking full bottles and have both gained weight.

They were born May 9 at Akron General Medical Center, grasping hands in a widely seen photo that was online, in newspapers and on national TV. Their dad says many people continue to ask about them.

Bill Thistlethwaite says he and mom Sarah will have a newly painted pink bedroom ready for the girls at their Orrville home.

The identical twins shared the same amniotic sac and placenta. Such births are called monoamniotic, or “mono mono.” Doctors say they occur in about one of every 10,000 pregnancies.
