An Early Positive
Joking aside, twin moms may experience more bloating and swelling than moms carrying a singleton. Edema, swelling of the lower extremities, hands and feet, may develop earlier and be more severe during a twin pregnancy.
What to watch for: While edema during pregnancy is usually normal there are some symptoms to watch for. If in addition to some swelling you experience swelling in one leg more than the other, a headache that won't go away, vision changes, chest pains or difficulty breathing you need to contact your primary care provider right away!
Increased hormone levels and weight gain means twin moms are much more susceptible to varicose veins than if they were only carrying one baby. Support stockings may be your new best friend!
