twin bump.... at 16 weeks


Time seems to be flying by.  I can't believe I am already four months pregnant.... well I should clarify that... I believe it when I look at my tummy, quite easily in fact... but it still feels so surreal.  I think when we find out the gender it will feel that much more real.  Just a few more weeks to go!

I have been feeling more and more human as every day passes.  I have been to the gym the past three days in a row... not exactly pushing it by any means... but just getting up and moving around feels amazing.  Food has also become easier.  I find that if I just eat all the time I feel pretty good.  I am also finding it much easier to find healthy appealing options lately, now that the food aversions have calmed down a bit.

The weird pregnancy dreams are in full swing.  I think I am harboring anxiety over the whole birth issue.  I had a dream a couple of nights ago that I went into early labor, like extreme early labor.... I was at the hospital and I was telling the doctor that I couldn't give birth now... I am only 16 weeks!  When I woke up it all seemed crazy but it kind of let me know that I am sort of pushing the whole birth part out of my mind, so perhaps this was my subconscious telling me to start considering it.... and the many many ways that it could play out.  After much debate we bit the bullet and signed up for a multiples prenatal class at the high risk hospital that we will be delivering at.  I was worried that this course would likely freak me out with all of the hospital interventions but ultimately decided that it is better to have an idea of what exactly is going to go down there, than to go in blindly hoping for the best.  I do have a long while to go and I am telling the twins to stay in there a good long time before they make their debut into this world.

Last weekend we felt something.  We're pretty sure that the something was a baby as there was a firm spot for a few minutes and it definitely felt different and then the spot disappeared.  Andrew was there luckily and thinks he "felt baby".  We are both anxious to start feeling more movement... so get kicking babies!

And now for the belly.....


There it is... in all of its glory!  It looks quite pointy in that picture but I would like to think it looks more rounded in person!

Happy Wednesday! ..and just in case you missed it... here is the twin bump at 14 weeks!

  2. Aww, you look great! My dreams are crazy weird too, so I lay awake in bed at night. I could have sworn I felt the baby last night, but I still think it's a little too early for me - especially just having one baby. Glad you are feeling well!

  8. Awwww! You look gorgeous! So exciting that you might be starting to feel movement. Sounds like the prenatal class for multiples might also be good to meet other couples expecting more than one babe at a time. You might want those kinds of friends in about 5 months or so :)
