15 Weeks Pregnant with Twins

Here’s what to expect when you are 15 weeks pregnant with twins:

Fetal Development

By 15 weeks in the twin pregnancy each of your twins is 4″ (10 cm) from head to rump and weighs 2.5 ounces (70 grams) and averages the following measurements:

Head circumference: 4.5″ (114 mm)
Abdominal Circumference: 4″ (102 mm)
Femur Bone Length (about from the waist to knee): 0.7″ (18 mm)

Each baby is about the size of an apple.

What to Expect

Typical weight gain for Mom at this point is between 1 to 1.5 pounds/week (0.5 to 0.7kg).

What to Prepare This Week
