Pregnancy Update! My Twin Boys :)

In just a few short months, hubby and I will be meeting our twin boys! They are due January 17th, 2013 and I realized today that I haven’t updated you all on my progress in a while.

Here is a quick re-cap to fill you in on our story: In May we found out that we were pregnant :) We were ready to start our family and so excited. We started trying in April and got pregnant in April, praise the Lord!

In May we told our family the good news by letting my mother-in-law unwrap a onsie that says “I Love my Grandma” for Mother’s Day.

Then we had our first ultrasound and our little baby looked strong and healthy. Yes, on the first ultrasound we only saw one baby…we went back a few weeks later for a check up and to confirm the due date. They took a quick look with the ultrasound and to everyone’s surprise…It’s TWINS! Read that whole story here: 1+1=4? An Added Blessing.

Then in July we found out that we are expecting two little boys :) My Dad is a twin and his twin is a boy, so we are excited to carry on that tradition! See the fun way we announced our twins genders to our family.

Slowly and steadily I have been getting bigger. I’ve shared some of these photos on Facebook but here is my journey so far:

12 Weeks Pregnant-This is BEFORE we knew it was Twins :) No real change yet or baby bump.

16 weeks pregnant-In the span of 4 weeks we found out that we are having twins and that they are both boys!  Not a lot of change yet but I could feel the baby bump coming!

And then BAM! By 18 weeks I had the baby bump! It came out of nowhere. Here I am at 19 weeks. So happy to finally be showing :)

Here I am at 20 weeks.

Now I am just growing like crazy! Here I am at 21 weeks.

 

Here I am at 22 weeks.
As of today I am 23 weeks and 4 days. I’ll have another picture to share of 24 weeks. Time if flying by!! I am putting together my baby registery this week and starting to get really excited for the boys!

They are kicking me constantly right now (and have wrestling matches no doubt).They won’t lay off my bladder but that’s okay! It’s all worth it. Daddy can feel their daily kicks now. And we already have the boys  names picked out. Stay tuned for that announcement coming soon!

  1. You are an adorable pregnant woman! You look great, and your excitement about your boys makes me want to have another baby. :) May God continue to bless you and all of your boys with health!

  2. congrats!
    I was wondering how things were going since you announced.
    I was pregnant during that time and was happy to hear you were too.
    Our baby just turned 2 months yesterday.
    I sometimes can’t believe it’s only been two month and how
    quickly it has gone by.
    Especially when I was struggling with GD during the last 3 months.
    But I had a great delivery (only an natural 8 hour birth!) care.

    (i posted photos of her in my journal)

    Can’t wait to hear more.
    :)

    • Thanks!! Congrats on your new little baby :) What a sweet blessing! And I’m sure time flies by!! Great to hear you had a natural birth :) That is what we are shooting for too!

      • if you can…no pain meds…it’s an amazing accomplishment and feeling.
        i wrote about my entire experience on my blog.

        • That’s what I am planning on doing! Natural birth…unless we need a C section for the twins. Which might happen, it’s much more likely for a c section for twins. But we are praying for natural and normal! :)

          • one of my friends delivered twin girls at 34 weeks
            and she had one natural and one c-section.
            you do what you have to do in order to make it
            the safest for yourself and your babies.

            i thought it was hard dealing with GD for one,
            I can’t imagine it for two.

          • Yes, we are thankful that those medical interventions are there if they are needed! Lord willing they won’t be but they are good if you need them! :D

    You are glowing! Pregnancy suits you! :)

  4. Oh, babies are a blessing and you’re having two :) :) Congratulations to you and your husband :) :) I’ll be praying for a smooth pregnancy for the time remaining and a smooth delivery :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  5. How exciting! And congratulations! I am pregnant with #4 and I link up over at my joy-filled life.blogspot.com for pregnancy journals. You should link this post up there!

  6. Since I am new to your blog, I was unaware that you were expecting. Congratulations! That’s neat that you will be having twins. I’m very happy for you, and you look great in all your photos. It’s fun to see the progress of your baby’s growth. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a safe delivery.

    When is your due date? :)

  7. You are so teeny!! I was huge at this point with my boys! Glad everything is going well and it was fun seeing your growing belly pictures!

  8. Congratulations again!!! :) By the last month of her pregnancy with my twin and I, my mom could put a coffee cup on her stomach and let go of it – she was big enough that it would just sit there! And apparently we kicked each other a lot too. :)
