Timeline of a Twin Pregnancy - 16 weeks in PicturesDiana Stone
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:
Just the start. 1 of 10I was 3 weeks 4 days. Total surprise it even showed up.
Twins! 2 of 10Our first ultrasound. It was supposed to measure how far along I was since I charted. Instead...
Week 9 3 of 10This is the week we found out we were expecting twins. I was already in maternity clothes.
Week 11 4 of 10Bella snuck in for this one. Deathly ill is all I remember. Deathly.
Week 12 5 of 10This one made a lot of people go, "Whoa." Because all of the sudden, there was a bump.
Week 13 6 of 10We 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 10Bella and her inside babies. I was starting to feel better. And wanting to eat. Finally.
Week 15 8 of 10Headed out to dinner, my sister grabbed this shot.
16 weeks 9 of 10I've popped like WHOA this week. Hello pregnant lady. According to my Dr last week, my uterus is measuring around 22+ weeks.
Twin A and B (or Bo & Go) 10 of 10This was our 13 week ultrasound. We find out the sexes of both next week - if they cooperate. Fingers (but not legs) crossed!
