Ten weeks in and wondering what to expect?
Week ten is where it’s normal for women to start showing. Of course, considering you’re probably having twins if you’re here with us, you might have started showing even earlier.
Either way, this week is a good week to look back at where we’ve come from, and look at where we’re going. After all, you’re 10 weeks pregnant with twins! How exciting is that!

Your babies have only got a little bit longer, growing from an inch in week 9, to around an inch and a quarter this week. But their weight has doubled, to 0.14 ounces. (We told you they’d grow fast.)
Your babies are in the fetal period now, or the time when they’ve finished developing all the essential organs, and it’s time to start growing.
They’re moving around a whole lot still, and now their limbs can bend, with hands that move at the wrist, and they might even have long and flexible enough legs that they can bring their feet together in front of them.
This is because your babies have started growing bones and cartilage. Under the gums, the same process is also forming teeth, ready for them to come through in around a year’s time.
If you could get in close, you’d also see the most adorable things forming, like tiny little finger and toenails, as well as light hair growth.
If you’re having a boy, they’ve also started producing testosterone already, which will already be making changes to their body.
You’re still in the period where pregnancy hormones are high and your body is making changes, so don’t expect this wild ride to end yet. On the upside, by the time you hit week 12, most of the symptoms below will have calmed right down, if not abated completely.
We’re in the middle of the first and second prenatal scans, so a 10 week ultrasound isn’t usual, but it can happen. Expect the same sort of things that you’d see at a primary prenatal scan.
Breathe easy, moms to be. The most dangerous period of your pregnancy is over, so relax.
You’ve come so far, so quickly, and pretty soon, you’ll be in the second trimester.
You’re also going to start noticing major changes with your own body soon, so stick with us and keep reading our articles, so you know what to expect.
As always, if you’ve got any questions we haven’t already answered, then make sure you drop them in our comments. I’m sure someone in our community has faced what you’re going through, even if we haven’t! How do you feel at 10 weeks pregnant with twins?
