Contractions...: Stomach tightening with twins usually is a contraction. If these are rare, they can be "Braxton Hicks" contractions. If they are more frequent, it could be pre-term labor. You should have a low threshold for letting your doctor know about contractions when you have twins. Best Wishes!
