Your Twin Babies at 9 Weeks Pregnant
Your babies are nearly finished with the embryonic stage. They are currently recognizable as small people, about the size of an olive or grape, but they are rapidly becoming much more fully formed.
Ears and toes are developing and becoming more defined, eyes are fully formed and have closed eyelids on top of them, and a small mouth and nose are also present.
Each internal organ is present and growing normally, and their tiny heart has all four chambers and is fully formed. Additionally, tiny teeth are beginning to form in their mouth and will eventually erupt, adding to the fun of teething.
They currently measure almost an inch long and weigh almost twice as much at zero. 07 ounces. Now that they’re mostly developed and the placenta is nearly complete, anticipate that to rise quickly.
Twin Pregnancy Symptoms at 9 Weeks
Pregnancy hormone levels are at their peak at nine weeks. That means that this week will be marked by the peak intensity of your pregnancy symptoms.
Therefore, this week may be the worst one yet. On the plus side, as your hormone levels return to normal and everything becomes much more stable starting next week, everything should start to gradually get better.
You will be able to hear the heartbeats of your twin if you have an ultrasound at the ninth week. Amazingly, their hearts will be beating 130 beats per minute, or twice as fast as yours.
