A 38-years-old primigravida with twin dichorionic diamniotic pregnancy at 18 weeks of gestational age, had a giant myoma attached to the uterine fundus, resulting in uterine prolapse and restrictive gastric capacity. The patient went through a myomectomy at 18 weeks of gestational age. After the surgery, the patient was able to eat without vomiting and had a complete regression of uterine prolapse. One of the fetuses died two weeks after surgery, and the other was delivered by a C-section on the 36 3/7 weeks. The postoperative period was uneventful, and the mother and newborn were discharged four days later.
