Here’s what to expect when you are 10 weeks pregnant with twins and nearing the end of the very first trimester:
By 10 weeks in the twin pregnancy, each of your twins will be about 1.2 inches long (31 mm) from crown to rump. Each baby is about the size of a kumquat.
All of your twin’s major organs have formed by this point and they have the ability to swallow.
What to Expect
Typical weight gain for Mom at this point is between 1 to 1.5 pounds/week (0.5 to 0.7kg).
Total weight gain for the twin pregnancy so far will average between 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8kg).
Mom may experience dizziness, vision changes, and acne.
