20 weeks

I am halfway there! Well technically I am over halfway since it is a twin pregnancy but either way I am so happy to be here. I am up 20lbs which per the twin guidelines I am right on schedule and I am hoping to be up 60-70lbs by the end of my pregnancy. I want some big healthy babies! My boobs decided to get pregnant with the rest of me this past week as well, haha. My bump page/tab has been updated so you can see my progress!


Two small cantaloupes


How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain: Well, if we are counting from when I got pregnant and not before the stims then I have gained 20lbs. Wowzer. :)

Maternity clothes: Yes, except for a few shirts that are almost too short and for a few dresses that stretch.

Stretch marks? No, not yet. I keep putting on the Palmers and Bio-Oil to keep them at bay.

Sleep: I wake up at least four times a night to either pee or readjust because of back, knee or hip pain. But I usually can fall back to sleep pretty easy.

Best moment of the week: Our level 2 ultrasound. The babies are healthy and I loved watching them on the screen for so long. At one point they were kicking and punching each other. I guess they are already fighting to see who will be the Alpha baby. AND I felt baby B kick from the outside for the first time. Baby A's placenta is in the front so I don't feel him as much.

Miss anything? Nothing... except maybe really hot baths.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? My wedding band is on my right hand now and my engagement ring is on the left.

Looking forward to: I am looking forward getting the nursery painted and buying the cribs. Oh, and I am starting their quilts this week.

  2. I can't rember if you have talked about having a maternity pillow or not, but I totally suggest it. It helped a ton with the hip/pelvis pain and supporting the belly! It sounds like things are going great- you have so much to look forward to! I feel like pinching myself at least once a day because this life with two little boys is so surreal :)
