23 weeks pregnant with twins already.
Now we’re over the hump and entering the second half of your pregnancy, the coming weeks are pretty dull when it comes to interesting symptoms and the other effects of a twin pregnancy.
But that’s fine, right? That just gives you more time to get everything in order and get your life sorted. Plus maybe a little bit of time for yourself.

Your babies are a little bigger than in week 22, or around 11 inches long and maybe a pound in weight. About the size of a mango.
But over the next few weeks, there’s going to be a massive weight gain plan going on, and your babies could potentially weigh double what they weigh right now in only four more weeks!
Right now, your babies have slightly saggy transparent, pinkish red skin, but pretty soon that will start to fill out as they put on weight and the natural fat deposits fill in.
Your babies heartbeats are also getting way stronger. Strong enough in fact to hear through a stethoscope. So when you’re with the doctor, or if you happen to have a stethoscope at home, (for some reason) then you can hear their little hearts!
Right now, you’re probably feeling a little bit less comfy than you have the last few weeks. That’s because your symptoms are getting slightly worse with every passing day.
You probably aren’t having an ultrasound this week, but if you are, you’ll be lucky enough to see your babies faces, completely fully formed and how they’re going to be when they’re born. Minus, maybe, the chubby little cheeks that will fill in as they put on weight.
Your babies will also be growing their own tiny pairs of nipples right now. No, we don’t know why it takes so long either.
Finally, because they’re becoming more sensitive to the outside world, expect them to move around a lot more in general, but also in response to outside stimuli like light and sound, especially your voice.
We’re closing fast on the third trimester, and the big event. Whilst these weeks are relatively uneventful, that’s the perfect time for you to be getting everything that you won’t be able to sort out in the final few weeks fixed and finished.
Things like sorting out your nursery, choosing names, throwing a baby shower. All of the fun things that come with pregnancy.
The good things for you too is that this site is packed with ideas for all of these, so take a look around if you feel the need for a touch of inspiration. Or just leave a comment. I’m sure our lovely community will have all the answers to any question you have.
