Stretching pains - bit of a silly question

I feel a bit silly asking this but I'm now 32 weeks expecting DCDA twins whose combined weight is estimated as more than ds birth weight and I'm getting nearly constant feeling of tightness and stretching round abdomen. It's also quite painful when they kick. Is this normal?

Hi, I feel exactly the same. I'm now 29+3, with identical twins (MCDA). At the last scan I had on Tuesday they were weighing 3 lbs 10 and 3 lbs 4 (DD was 7 lbs 9, and she was 2 weeks early!). I'm wondering how there can be much more room for them to grow. It all feels so tight already, and very uncomfortable when they start moving and kicking. Got a section booked for 36 wks, but also have placenta previa so really don't know if will last until then. I think the feeling must be normal - there are 2 of them this time!!

I'm 33w with mcda twins and feel battered and bruised. One is 3lb 15oz and the other is 4lb 5oz - bigger than dd1's 6lb 14oz. 4 weeks until cs seems like a long time and a lot more growth. Will be a relief once these girls are out tbh.
