The emphasis is on “little more” because as the mother of twins you will certainly feel less energetic than what a singleton, mother of a single foetus, would feel. Those early symptoms of pregnancy would have receded. But this is also the phase when you would need to eat a fibrous diet because of constipation. It is a manifestation of the growth of the foetus on the digestive system of the mother.
You will also feel that the ligaments on both sides of the uterus and pelvic region are stretching a lot more as the foetuses grow inside. Technically, this is the right time to call them foetuses because they have grown from the embryonic stage. By the end of this month, their kidneys would have started functioning and their urine can also be seen in the ultrasound. The fingernails are fully formed, the legs are longer than the hands and all this contributes to a significant development in the first month of the second trimester.
This is the month when you, the mother, will feel the most fascinating aspect of motherhood. You will find your twins moving and giving your energy levels a noticeable spike. This is the feeling which many expectant mothers believe is the best part of pregnancy. The thrill of this could well leave you a wee bit tired after all the excitement. But, all this means you will need to lead a more disciplined life to meet all health parameters. You will feel the pressure of their weight on your lower back and feel leg cramps. Walking and gentle stretching exercises will help in easing the discomfort.
