You’re 14 weeks pregnant with twins, so you’ve already faced more than most women in your situation. But now you’re entering the honeymoon phase of your pregnancy.
For the next few weeks, everything’s going to be a whole lot easier, so now’s the time to get all the important stuff done.
A single fetus at 14 weeks
Your babies are packing on their weight. Around 3.4 inches long and weighing twice as much as week 13, you can expect them to be around 1.5 ounces at maximum. They’re about the size of a large peach right now, or a small clenched fist.

Fully developed, your babies are getting stronger every day. Their muscles and bones are developed enough that movements are controlled and fluid, and they’re now capable of holding their heads up and moving around with defined movements, rather than the slightly jerky, uncontrolled movements we were seeing even a couple of weeks back.
Your babies also have another strange little quirk. Right now, they’re all covered in hair, like little chimps. It’s called lanugo, and it’s a full body, downy coating of hair that’s there to keep them warm.
But don’t worry, it’s going to be gone by the time they’re born, unless they’re born really premature.
If you could see them in there, you might also notice that they’re making funny faces. That’s because their brains are making sure that all the muscles work, and that includes the face. So from grimaces to smiles, they’re going to be practising them all.
Lastly, the kidneys have kicked in and started filtering blood, which means that your babies are going to start passing urine, which they’ll keep doing until they’re finally born.
Whilst you might still be suffering from some of the symptoms of the first twelve weeks, with any luck they’re going to be fading fast. With that in mind, here’s what you can expect to see in the next few days.
If you haven’t had an ultrasound by now, you probably should, so contact your doctor and get yourself booked in.
We’d always recommend regular check ups, just to make sure that everything’s going on correctly. After all, unfortunately with twins, there’s so much more than can become an issue, so you need to make sure everything’s going on fine in there.
Don’t leave your baby shopping too late. Check out our baby twins shopping list.
You’re getting there. The next few weeks should be so much better than what’s come before. You’ve got a few weeks of grace and glory, so make sure you take full advantage.
You’re going to be full of energy, feeling great, and capable of doing everything that you wanted to do but weren’t capable of in the last couple of months.
Now is a great time to take a short break with your partner, and get that fire back. This is also an incredible opportunity to start making plans for your coming baby, even if relatively minor.
