At 18 weeks pregnant with twins you’re quickly approaching the mid point of your twinnies pregnancy, and I’m sure you’re growing fast.
As you start to show, expect more people to start mentioning it. If you’re the sort of person who thrives on attention, this can be an amazing time, but if you’re a little more reserved, it might be worth thinking up a way to deal with all this increased pressure.
Either way, you’re going to start putting on weight pretty quickly, if you haven’t already, so it might be worth taking some time out for your relationship, because it will only get more difficult in the coming months.

Some time in the next few weeks, you might feel a wonderful sensation for the first time. Your babies moving around inside your tummy.
They’ve been doing it for weeks, but now they’re getting big enough and strong enough that you’re starting to pick up on it. Pretty soon, it’ll be a regular occurrence, but right now, it’s going to feel unique, and so amazing!
18 weeks in, and your babies are around 5.5 inches long, and weigh anywhere between 5.5 and 6.5 ounces each, or the size of a large bell pepper!
This week, and the coming weeks, will see things start to get a little, um, achy. As you and your babies grow in size, expect it to start taking a toll on your body. But you’ve come this far. We’re almost halfway already!
If you’re having Di/Di twins who have their own amniotic sacs, watch out on your next scan. Because they’re moving so much, it’s actually possible for you to see the membranes that separate your twins shifting on the ultrasound as they stretch and move about in there.
You can also expect to see them moving around a lot more, now. Expect to see them rolling around, kicking out, even yawning and sucking on their thumbs. It’s both incredible and adorable!
