Belly Shots: Twin Pregnancies in the Third TrimesterDiana Stone
I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter Bella wondering what I might look like at the end. When we found out I was having twins, my curiosity was taken to a whole new level.
Just how big did moms carrying multiples get? What did carrying two look like by just third tri?
These women in the pictures below have graciously allowed their gorgeous photos to be shown on here, and I am in awe of what their bodies did and held. I had trouble not crying the entire time while putting this together (stupid pregnancy hormones) because each one is so proud of what they accomplished or are accomplishing, and their stories are each unique.
It was a privilege to do this. It shows in each of these photos how truly amazing and breathtaking all pregnancies are, and how incredible the female body is.
