25 weeks pregnant with twins means we’re getting real close to the third trimester of your pregnancy.
Before you get there, you should try and get everything that you can sorted. That means all the medical stuff, everything you need to do at home, as well as the all important things like picking out names and sorting out your babies nursery and first month clothes.
A single fetus at 25 weeks
Your babies have gained almost a quarter of a pound since last week, weighing in as they do at a pound and a half, with a height of almost 14 inches. Normally around 13.6 inches, to be exact.
Remember how last week we told you that your babies lungs are filling out, ready for that all important first breath? Well, that’s still happening, but their blood vessels and circulatory system are doing double duty, as well, filling their lungs with blood vessels to ferry all the oxygen throughout their body.
On top of this, their skin is getting a healthier glow about it. Not because they’re getting thicker skin, or even more tanned.
Instead, it’s because the network of capillaries that we all have under our skin is spiralling outwards, and that makes them seem a little more pink.
Not that you can see any of this, of course…
Right now, singleton moms start to feel the pressure of their growing baby. But you’re carrying twins, which makes the effect that it’s going to have on your body that much greater. Right now, you might be suffering from any of the below:
Pretty soon, you’re going to be having a scan every couple of weeks instead of every month. But right now, you’re probably not due another scan.
If you are, then you can expect it to be much the same as it has been. Your baby will probably look a little chubbier, and a little bigger than last time. But apart from that, there’s nothing specific to look out for.
Don’t leave your baby shopping too late. Check out our newborn twins shopping list.
Every week that passes gets us one week closer to that all important day.
It’s normal to start feeling the pressure by now.
If you’re worried, we recommend making a list of everything you need to get sorted before your baby is due. Not only will it help you remember everything you have to get sorted, you’ll get a feeling of satisfaction as you cross them off, one by one.
And remember, if you need any extra help or advice, we’re always here. Just throw your question into our comments section, and we’ll do whatever we can to help. How do you feel at 25 weeks pregnant with twins?
