9 Weeks Pregnant with Twins: Ultrasound, Symptoms, and More

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.

  • Mood swings and emotional instability: You’ve gone through a lot these last few weeks, and everything being the worst its going to be this week isn’t going to help. So take it easy if you can. It’s fine to have a nap every now and then, and if you’re suffering from exhaustion or the morning sickness is acting up, it’s completely fine to ask for help. On that note.
  • Morning sickness: Three quarters of women suffer from morning sickness, and having twins makes the whole rigmarole that much worse. On the upside, like we just said, this is the peak level of hCG hormone, so hopefully your morning sickness is going to start getting better as of next week. Hold on, loves.
  • Fatigue: Your body is working double time to get everything ready and provide for your twins, so it’s only natural to have ebbing energy levels. All of the other things you’re dealing with are going to add to this, so do what you can to look after yourself, including getting early nights and eating as well as you can.
  • Congestion: In week 8 you were drooling everywhere. This week you’re producing more nasal mucus, so you’re permanently walking around feeling stuffed up like you’ve got the flu. Expect this to go pretty fast, though.
  • Needing to pee more often: All the activity going on down there is going to cause you to need to pee far more often. The increased blood flow and uterine changes, as well as the fact that you should be drinking a lot more, are going to keep you going to the loo all day long.
  • 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.
