23 Weeks Pregnant with Twins: Tips, Advice & How to Prep

Your Twin Babies at 23 Weeks Pregnant

Your babies are about 11 inches long and possibly a pound heavier than they were in week 22. About the size of a mango.

Your babies could potentially weigh twice as much as they do now in just four more weeks thanks to a massive weight gain plan that will be in place over the coming weeks.

Your babies’ skin is currently transparent and pinkish red, but as they gain weight and their natural fat reserves fill in, it will soon start to fill out and become slightly less saggy.

Your babies heartbeats are also getting way stronger. Strong enough in fact to hear through a stethoscope. So you can hear their little hearts when you’re with the doctor or if you just so happen to have a stethoscope at home (for some reason)!

5 tips for a better 23rd week

-Drink lots of water – 1 gallon a day!

-Buy a grabber reaching tool to pick up things that fall on the floor so you don’t have to bend over.

-Go on a date with your partner.

What’s going on with those twinnies?

Have a baby shower. By week 30, but ideally closer to week 26, you should host your baby shower if you’re expecting twins, who may arrive early.

If you want to hire a night nurse, start your search now. This nanny is available a few nights a week to watch your children while you sleep through the night.

Check your company’s short term disability policy. If your employer provides this, you might be eligible for 4-6 weeks of partial payment. In the event that you must stay in bed, you might be able to begin receiving STD up until the birth of your children and then receive increased pay for the first four to six weeks following the birth.
