Timeline of a Twin Pregnancy - 16 weeks in Pictures

One thing I’m so glad I did was keep an almost weekly picture account of this pregnancy from the pee stick to my current week (16).

I missed doing a lot of this with my daughter Bella and swore I’d be better next time. So even before there were twins, there were pics. I didn’t have much to photograph before week 9, and the fact that there was a bump already (but I didn’t know about twins yet) made me not want to take pics because I was convinced it was me just being a lard ball. And then there was snapping the zipper with teeth clean off my jeans at 8 weeks. 

I’ve put it all together in a slideshow for you to see how big (with lots of time to go!) I’ve gotten over the weeks, and included a few fun pics from along the way. I promise those are water droplets on the stick from rinsing it. Swearsies.

Please to enjoy:

    Bella snuck in for this one. Deathly ill is all I remember. Deathly.

    This one made a lot of people go, "Whoa." Because all of the sudden, there was a bump.
  • Week 13 6 of 10

    We were told we could have identical instead of fraternal. Scared the crap out of me as I had no idea what mono-di meant when the Dr announced it as I was checking out.
  • Week 14 7 of 10
    Week 14

    This was our 13 week ultrasound. We find out the sexes of both next week - if they cooperate. Fingers (but not legs) crossed!
