Still not feeling lots of movement

I don't know why. I'm not feeling the twins move that often. I'm 25 weeks now. I should be feeling more movement with twins right? I feel one move about once a day. Usually only when I'm desperately hungry. I'm going to talk to the Dr on Tuesday because I don't know how normal this is for twins.

Just because there's two, doesn't mean they're stronger than one. I wouldn't worry at all. It's crowded in there, too. They'll gain strength and soon you won't be able to sleep because they'll be beating each other up all night. My doctor told me that with twins (which I have, too) it might take longer to feel regular movement. Talk to your doc if you're worried but I wouldn't worry too much. Good luck :)

I'm actually feeling more movement from my one baby then I ever did with my twins. They run out of room faster so it's harder to feel them move. Where your placenta is can also affect how much you feel them.

I didn't feel a lot of movement with my twins. They don't have a lot of room in there so there aren't as many kicks or jabs.

I have just one and am 25 weeks and my baby barely moves. I worry abt it all the time and then I will feel little jabs. Its just not very consistant. I guess some babies are just less active, and I have an anterior placenta, but I still thought by now it wouldn't have mattered.

when my friend was pregnant with twins, she hardly ever felt either of them move...just because there's 2 doesn't mean anything. Placement of the placenta could play a factor as well.

I've had anterior placenta with both of my pregnancies and I never felt strong movements.
I'm 28 weeks now (with one) and sometimes I'll get some good kicks/movements but nothing like some women do where you actually see the belly move.

I am guessing they have less space so maybe they move less then a single baby?
