Your twins each weigh about 1.5 oz, which is about the size of a peach.

Your twins’ brain impulses have begun to fire and they are using their facial muscles. Their kidneys are working now, too.

to do list

14 Weeks Pregnant with Twins

  • Take off your wedding rings and hide them in a safe place (write yourself a note so you can find them again someday, trust us!)
  • Look for a new home, if needed. If you are already outgrowing your current home and you have the budget, get moving on moving! It will be one million times easier to move before the babies come versus waiting for them to arrive and having to work around a feeding/sleeping schedule.
  • Sign up for a Twiniversity expecting twins class! We offer them locally as well as online so anyone can take advantage of this class.

what to do when you're having two

An excerpt from Twiniversity founder Natalie Diaz’s book, “What To Do When You’re Having Two

what to do when you're having two

Reflux

Good times.  If you are suffering from reflux during your pregnancy, just Tums the day away.  When I was pregnant, I ate orange Tums like they were M&M’s. Just shove them down and don’t think about it.  Another option is to try eating almonds before going to bed. Almonds neutralize stomach acids, so they just might work.  Try sleeping in a more upright position, too. In our family, my little old Italian grandmother Anna told me to take a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar when heartburn hits. Truth be told, this has worked 100% of the time for me and many of my other Twiniversity families.
