10 Weeks Pregnant with Twins

Here’s what to expect when you are 10 weeks pregnant with twins and nearing the end of the very first trimester:

Fetal Development

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.
