....well not exactly.
We went to see our midwives today. I was curious to know how much smaller I'd be if I was only carrying one baby. It turns out I'm measuring 28-30 weeks pregnant, even though I'm only 22 1/2 weeks at this point! Measuring 6+ weeks ahead is completely normal for twin pregnancies. Regardless of what's normal or not, I can't help but think about being 30 weeks pregnant and measuring 36 weeks. Then I think about 6 weeks after that when I will be measuring 42 weeks! Jenn's going to have to hold me up by one of those kiddie leash things (see below) so I don't fall on my face. But hey, I'll measure 50 weeks if it means that our babies come out healthy and at good weights!
In other news, Jenn felt our little kickboxer, baby B, for the first time last night! Baby B comes alive when the sun goes down, so when she started kicking and punching, I told Jenn to put her hand on my right side. Sure enough, she socked Jenn's hand a few times! With a huge smile on her face, she looked at me with wide eyes and said, "Oh my God! Was that it?!" It was priceless :)
It is so exciting to feel the movement!ReplyDelete
My mom only carried my sister and me to about 30 or 32 weeks, but in the pictures we have of her at the end of her pregnancy she looks enormous! ...partially I think that's because she's quite short, but regardless, it is amazing what the body will do to accommodate these little ones.
