A Little Background...Part Two...Watch Me Grow!

I've already forgotten how big I got in my pregnancy! I haven't forgotten the pounds I gained, but when I look at the pictures we took along the way, I'm just surprised by how big my stomach got! I think, by the end (the girls were born at 38 weeks 2 days), my doctor was measuring me at 45 or 46 cm...that's as big as someone would be if they could carry a singleton to 45 weeks. Here are a few pictures that we took to document my growth (the earlier pictures are in the previous post)...

25 1/2 weeks...

34 1/2 weeks...I look exhausted!

And 38 weeks...Just two days before the girls arrived...Sorry for the blurry picture. I was too tired to stand through another round of pictures to get a clear one. I'm not too thrilled with how I look here, but it is what it is. This is the first time this picture has been shared.

I have to say that I was VERY uncomfortable by the end. I wasn't put on bed rest, as I didn't have any complications, but those last two weeks were spent in a recliner watching Netflix movies. I just couldn't stand for very long.

Well, that's all for now. Stay tuned for Part Three...

  1. Holy moly! I don't know how you did it. You actually look really good for carrying twins for as long as you did!
