This twin pregnancy is my first pregnancy. I'm ecstatic that everything is going well, because I have nothing to compare it to. Our boys are growing just fine-- at my last ultrasound almost a month ago (I'm due for another this week), the babies were weighing 1lb. 8 oz., and 1 lb. 6 oz. The ultrasound tech told me that that was a fantastic weight, and she was thrilled that they were so close. WOOHOO!
So, what is this about?
The octopus in my belly.
One starts rolling, and gets the other one going. Their movement has literally stopped me in my tracks several times, and my poor bladder has developed a thicker skin from all the parties these two are throwing on top of it. My stomach gets tighter every day, and its uncomfortable to sit down in most positions (I'm measuring at 35 weeks).
BUT THE MOVEMENT.
I don't want it to stop because I know this means they're fine and dandy (they've *always* been active), but I'm wondering: how in the hell am I going to make it another 13 weeks?!
To my second and third trimester ladies: how are you dealing with the octopi you're growing?
