Whenever I google anything about twin pregnancy I come across so many pregnancy journals/blogs and I can't help but wish I started something like that too. Didn't help that I felt like crap for the first 3 months and when I finally felt better I made up for lost time and have hardly spent time at home. Been busy meeting up with friends, driving here and there, eating, shopping and doing everything I can before the babies come. So here I am, again trying to make up for lost time and trying to summarise my pregnancy journey till now.
Most twin pregnancy websites have said that at 27 weeks you can start your 10 week countdown. How scary is that? My doctor also told me that at 30 weeks I need to stop most activity to prevent preterm labour and basically wait for the babies to make their entrance. So that leaves me only 2 weeks to do what I want?
|Taken at 13 weeks and the first photo to sort of announce the pregnancy (on Facebook of course!) Was still suffering from nausea but was slowly but surely feeling better each week.|
|Week 15. Was living in tank tops and this long stretchable black skirt that I've had since I was 16 years old. Never wore it much till now, was probably saving it for just this.|
|At our check-up where we found out that one of the twins will be a boy! This ultrasound is of the other twin who was too shy and only showed us its back.|
|Week 19, the week I started my prenatal yoga classes, which I found to be incredibly boring. I went for a yoga, pilates and stretch & tone class and stopped right after that. I seriously need to start my classes again...|
|Week 20, the twins and I experienced our first Sikh wedding. It was loud, colourful and lots of fun.|
|Been using the Whattoexpect app and look forward to what fruits the babies resemble every week. When funky fruits started popping up it hit me that I didn't have much time before the babies got here.|
|Week 23, this dreaded night I felt like wearing a pair of shorts but very soon realised that I can't fit into any of mine so I put on hubby's sleeping shorts. Was mighty comfortable...|

|All the driving at Week 27 resulted in pretty severe swelling of my ankles and foot. Was mighty freaked out as the pregnancy has been pretty smooth sailing till this happened. I am happy to share that at Week 28 I am now swollen foot free and looking forward to the last 10 weeks to come...|
