Silver Lining: twin bumpin'

February 5, 2016

twin bumpin'

Now that I know I'm having twins, I can look back and think that there were actually a lot of signs that this was a multiple pregnancy in the my first trimester. Like the fact that I started showing at only 10 weeks pregnant, or the fact that I was more than twice as sick as I ever was the first time around. But of course I had no idea it was twins, so I just thought it was a rough pregnancy, and don't people usually start showing earlier with their second baby? Regardless, I'm only 15 weeks now, but my twin bump is here to stay!

I've been looking back through the archives of Claire's pregnancy, and I think my 15-week bump looks the same size as my 26-week bump with Claire. Ha! And now I'm resisting the urge to buy maternity clothes four sizes too big because if I'm already this big, won't I be gigantic beyond belief by the end?

This week has been full of some of the best, and some of the worst, parenting moments in a while. Claire was very sick for three days, and was up every single hour and a half during those three days. At one point, when I was beyond exhausted and stumbling to Claire's room to give her a snuggle and more medicine at 4:30am, I thought - This is just some sort of pre-test for having twins, isn't it? And then I thought that somebody should definitely check me into an insane asylum right now and save us all the trouble later down the road. ;)

On the bright side, I have been getting unlimited baby cuddles from my normally wiggly girl, and I have also been getting unlimited help from my sweetheart husband. And now we are all fresh from a good night's sleep and feeling ready for the weekend!

Happy Friday!
And thank you, as always, for reading along.
Anyone doing something fun this weekend?
