Q&A: Can twins kick each other?

I'm nervous that one of my twin babies will kick the other in utero and hurt them. Does this ever happen/should I even worry?

The Bump Expert

Just like singleton babies, twins can sometimes get super-active in the womb. But not to worry -- there's no real threat from it! Babies can kick or even hit each other (yes, really) in utero, but the good news is the amniotic fluid acts as a cushion to protect them from actually getting hurt by any of it.

Hi, Don't worry! They were designed to live in your womb together. My sister-in-law had twins & both of them turned out just fine!

Q&A: Can twins kick each other?

I'm pretty sure mine kick each other more now out of my belly than they ever did in the belly. Plus, when you are pregnant and they get big enough to give a powerful kick, they just don't have much room anyway to do much damage.

I have twins, and you dont need to worry. They are protected by the fluid. Let them kick away. :) :)

One of my girls kicks the other in the face all the time. During ultra sounds you can see A pushing B's feet away because they are right in her face. They don't have a lot of room in there to do damage!
