Over Christmas, my very talented cousin Rebecca (you might remember her from the embryo transfer) took some maternity pictures of me. I was only about 22 weeks along, so I wasn’t showing that much, but she still managed to get some beautiful shots.
If you read my last post, you know that we were surprised this week to find out that we’re having twin boys!
We got to see the boys squirming around like crazy during the ultrasound, which was a lot of fun, and they were certainly not shy about letting us know that they were boys. Here’s some individual pictures of them:
Steve & I came back from Thanksgiving break on Sunday night both feeling sick, but we were so excited because this Wednesday was our ultrasound, and we were eager to find out our little one’s gender. We were both going to be so excited for a boy or a girl!
When we got to our appointment, I lay down on the ultrasound table and as soon as the exam started, we both saw it – TWO heads!
I wanted to share my ‘twin tracker’ questions for anyone who was interested in doing their own pregnancy updates. These questions aren’t unique to a twin pregnancy, just pregnancy questions in general. There are lots of similar questionnaires floating around out there, but when I was wanting to begin my own there were no templates. So here’s a template for anyone who is interested in tracking their pregnancy on their blog!
I thought it would be fun to share a quick little collage of my twin baby bump progression. I didn’t take photos every single week, but fairly regularly throughout my pregnancy.
I didn’t take a ‘before’ photo, but week 13 is when I first felt my bump coming in… or so I thought. 😉 It’s kind of humorous looking at it now. Week 18 was my halfway mark. Week 22 my bump ‘popped’ and started to round out a little more. And week 28 was when someone finally noticed that I was pregnant! Although the comment went something like this “Whoa, I didn’t realize you were pregnant until you turned to the side… you’re one of those tricky pregnant women!” Haha!
One of my favorite parts of having people comment on my bump was when they asked me “Boy or Girl?” and I got to respond “Both”.
