Twin Pregnancy Week 18

By week 18 of your twin pregnancy babies’ vocal cords are formed.

During an ultrasound examination babies’ heart features are fully detectable.  A skilled ultrasound technician may be able to detect heart abnormalities from this week onward.

At this stage, your babies’ lungs have already begun exhaling amniotic fluid. If you have had an amniocentesis, make sure you take it easy for the next few days and rest rest rest.

    I’m 18 Weeks W. Twin Boys &Have Severe Back Pain &Stomach Cramps, Has Anyone Else Had These Problems To?

    • Jessica

      I am 17 weeks and 5 days with twin boys and I have had stomache cramps but only a little bit of back pain. My doctor said the stomache cramps are just from my uterus stretching. I don’t know what could be causing such severe back pain though.

      • Brandi

        Back pain is from the weight of your belly.
