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?

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.
