18 weeks & haven't felt twins move

I am 18 weeks 4 days pregnant with twins and haven't yet felt them move. It is my first pregnancy, and have heard that I may not feel them move until 20 weeks, but I am still worried. I have tried the cold water, oj, and sweets. Should I be worried???

don't be worried. most women don't feel their babies till 22-24 weeks. with twins...we usually feel them around 20 weeks. i felt my guys at about 20 weeks, maybe a few days after.

i really felt them going right after eating.

No worries! I'm 20 weeks with twins and noticed these lil guys/girls kicking up a storm now,,,but just little questionable flutters around 18 weeks.

I'm 20 weeks pregnant with completely normal twins, and I can only feel one move occasionally (and then just barely).  Apparently the placenta belonging to the one I can't feel at all is on top, so it's acting like a buffer.  I wouldn't worry, but you could always ask your doctor to check the heartbeats if that would make you feel better.

I am now 27 weeks and I didnt feel them till about week 20.  I felt pop corn popping...it is a very exciting moment!  Just wait a bit longer!

Alli83, everyboby is different. i'm 22 weeks and I don't feel my twins that much. All I feel is the flutters every once in a while. i went to the doctor and she said i wont feel mine as much because the placenta is in the front. Talk to your doctor and see if that could be the case.
