26 Weeks

Sleep
Naps are fabulous! Yesterday, I dropped Little Man off at preschool and crawled in bed for almost three hours! Good thing too, because at night I'm still waking up multiple times.

My Size/Development
Oops! I completely forgot to ask my doctor my measurements.

The Babies' Size/Growth
The babies' eyes may open and blink at week 26 and retinas are beginning to form. The air sacs of the lungs are taking shape this week as well. Even though the lungs are still growing, they still have to mature for babies to be able to breath without help. Before 20 weeks of gestation, each twin is usually the same size as a singleton fetus of equivalent age. After 20 weeks, each twin tends to grow more slowly. That's why twins, even if not premature, tend to have a lower than average birth weight.

Random Twin Fact
Female fraternal twins have a one in 17 chance of giving birth to their own set of fraternal twins. Miss Isabella Lynn better be ready for the possibility of having twins.
