You’re 30 weeks pregnant with twins! That means next week you’re down to the last quarter! That’s huge.
Whether you think this has taken ages, or you can barely remember the last few weeks because they’ve gone past far too far, you’ve done incredibly well.
Now we’re into the last few weeks, everything’s going to come even faster, so it’s vital that you get everything ready and waiting.
A single fetus at 30 weeks
A little bit longer, a whole lot heavier. That’s how your babies are doing this week. They might have grown half an inch or so, to about 15.5 inches, but they’ve put on near half a pound, weighing somewhere near 3lbs each now.
That means each twin is around the size of a zucchini.
As a soon to be parent of twins, you’re probably aware of the fact that preterm labor is a thing with your little ones. On the upside, you’re now far enough along that if they are born early, they have a really good chance of survival, so you can relax a whole lot more.
Inside their bodies, their brains are wrinkling up, as their brains develop and get ready for the outside world. Not only that, but their digestive systems are almost ready to go, waiting for that day when they finally see the outside world!
Are you prepared for what’s to come? Check out our twins shopping checklist.
If everything’s been fine so far, your doctor might rule that you don’t need a scan yet, but as you’re carrying twins, it’s far more likely that you’re going to have a 30 weeks scan.
You might even have a biophysical exam done, which is an ultrasound as well as a non-stress test (NST,) or fetal heart rate monitoring.
If you’ve been told you’re having one of these, don’t worry. Like the name suggests, it’s not stressful, completely non-invasive, and only takes a little while. It’s just sensors put on the outside of your belly to monitor your babies heart rates and make sure everything is going on great in there.
You’re carrying twins. That means you’re a lot more likely to have a premature birth. That’s why we keep saying that you need to be ready, because you never know what might happen, and when. Learn more about twin pregnancy on this page.
