Twin Pregnancy Week 17

By week 17 of your twin pregnancy your babies are capable of swallowing, blinking and sucking.

They are very active and you may feel them more now.

Your babies ears start to pop out.  Their necks are getting longer. Their eyes are still shut at this time.

At this stage twins’ heartbeats should be heard by a doppler. Some of your antibodies are beginning to get transferred to your babies.

Mothers better relax and take it easy. For a twin pregnancy, if you carry to term, you are about half way there!

    im 16weeks pregnant with twins. Has anyone had cerclage done I get mines in 2days?

    • Mommy24

      Hi I am 16 weeks 5 days with fraternal twins. I had a cerclage put in 3 weeks ago because my last pregnancy ended as a loss at 20 weeks due to my cervix opening. It was devastating so my doctor decided to do a cerclage as a preventative measure. So far it’s been ok for me. Cervix still long and “closed”. I pray to God that I carry these babies to term or at least a great viability age. Did your doctor prescribe bedrest and pelvic rest until 37 weeks also?

    I’m 17 weeks today. This is my 3rd pregnancy. I have two beautiful boys ages 12 & 5. I’m due July 28th if I carry 40 weeks but my doctor says 36 weeks is considered full term for twins. I would have to say only God knows when they’ll make their arrival. Let’s just hope for healthy babies. We haven’t found out the gender yet. I wouldn’t mind at least one girl. Congrats to all the pregnant mothers. I can’t wait to hold my two little blessings sent from above. Bless you all 🙂

        I’m Quifia from Philadelphia. I’m 17 weeks and 3days pregnant with Twins. I had my first ultrasound 10 weeks ago n found out I was having twins. I was so excited n scared at the same time. I’m very tired with little energy for the past few weeks. But I’m going to the gym 4x a week to stay active since I’m not working. My best advice is to stay calm n stay active n take it easy and enjoy the time being pregnant.

      Hi I’m also 17 weeks with twin boys due May 22 if I go 40 weeks. This is my 4th pregnancy, first set of twins so excited.  I thought from 6th weeks might be twins due to size of growing belly.  🙂
