28 week belly pic.

Here Is my 28 week pic and a picture of the babies sleeping spots.

Tara- I'm curious how bad your "twin skin" is? Hope that's ok to ask? I had a little extra skin after Lily so I was thinking maybe that will help with all the stretching. If that is what I'm left with after this pregnancy I'm ok with that but if I'm going to be left with folds of skin, I am freaked out about that!! Vthanks for your input!

I'm not Tara but hope it's Ok to reply Smile

I have 'twin skin' from my last pregnancy, I went back to my previous size with my singletons but not with the twins. It's not pretty, but I guess since I went over 40 weeks it was to be expected. The youngest two are now 15 months and it has improved, but it's definitely not my favourite area. Happy to answer any questions if you have any?

And you look fantastic Smile - congrats on getting the beds ready, I think I was in total denial as I can't remember doing that until I was almost full-term. And then they ended up sharing a cot until they were about 8 months old!

Thanks for the info!! I have a chance to get a little tuck if I end up needing a csection, so I'm just weighing my pros and cons. I hate that I just don't know what's going to happen. lol! I'm a planner!!

I plan to have them sleep together until they start waking each other up. Did you nurse them? How did that go?

Yep, I am considering a tummy tuck. I've got a bit more weight to lose (down 25kg since they were born - 3kg to go), and then I will decide depending on how I look then. I tried but I'm not just not embracing my 'mother scars'!

And my twins' birth? The easiest one I had...so you never know what's going to happen! I had a NVD and they kind of just fell out Wink

The girls never woke each other up, even when lying face to face. They just didn't, I can't explain it. They're still in the same room and rarely wake each other now either. I only separated them in the cot when one (Tessa) used her sister as a climbing frame....

Breastfeeding went well, except one had a tongue tie so that was a challenge until she had it snipped (but that would have been the same with a singleton). I'm still feeding them now. I didn't really get the hang of tandem feeding for a long time so fed them separately most of the time. To be honest, breastfeeding is the easiest part of my day as I get to sit down Wink - your two older children are the same age as mine (Sept 07 and May 09)!

You look AMAZING!!!! And YEAH for getting their beds all set.

As far as my "twin skin", lets just say that I will NEVER wear a two piece again. My belly button has an "awning" as DH likes to call it. It really could be worst, but it is defeintly loose and "flabby". I like to pull it up and see what my tummy would look like without it. As much as I hate it, I can live with it. If I ever come across some "spare" money I will be getting a tummy tuck, but I will be fine without one.

The girls still share a room. At first we kept them on the same schedule. So if one woke up in the middle of the night to eat, I would feed/change her and then wake the other one up. Otherwise I woudl just fall back to sleep and she would wake up. So it was never ending. They slept in the same bassinet in our room until about 3 months old, then they were getting to big for it. So they slept in the same crib until about 10 months old, when they would just roll over and lay on the other one. I didn't want them huring eachtoher so we put them in their own cribs. They still like to lay down with eachother and snuggle. It's really cute. I think they also just get used to being in the same room, so when one would wake up and cry (even now if one is sick) the other one usually sleeps thru it. ANd if she does wake up, she usually goes right back to sleep. Twins really are amazing! The bond they have, you just can't get any closer!
