20 Weeks!

It is a very special day for me. I am 20 weeks pregnant today. What an amazing thing.
Only 16 more weeks to go until the caeser date, if we make it that far - so hope we do and they don't arrive earlier as I don't want them in NICU if possible. I am starting to feel the babies more and more...but not enough - wish I could feel them all day long, it is so very very special.

How far along? 20 weeks! Wow.

Maternity clothes? Same.

Symptoms? More backache, especially during the night and in morning on waking. More difficult standing up and really uncomfy bending over!

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Weight gain? Haven't weighed myself lol.

Sleep? Up at 12pm and 3am to wee.

Movement? One day of amazing activity, then nothing the next day, then a little rolling around or changing positions the following day...want more!

Best moment this week? DH saying goodbye to his babies every morning by tapping and rubbing my belly and saying "goodbye babies".

Food cravings? Slap so bad.

What I miss? Walking without losing my breath, but wouldn't change anything.

What I am looking forward to? Only 6 more sleeps until the 21 weeks anatomy scan...oh please let all be perfect. Can't wait to see how much they have grown and what they weigh now.

Milestones? Official halfway mark, even though it is less for us...still feels incredibly monumental and special.

Emotions? Renewed positivity. Connectedness to these special souls starting to get more real...

General... I think I must start shopping soon - already feeling overwhelmed. Went into Babies R Us the other day, looked at the car seats and promptly walked out again...No idea where to start! I realise now that I am going to start slowing down even more...better not leave it too long...


  1. Dear Cam, what a milestone ! I am glad you are feeling happy and less stressed. Congratulations, So proud of you & and your LOs, Sister !!

  2. Congrats on a brilliant milestone. Good luck with the shopping, it is so completely overwhelming and confusing and the options for twins are definitely limited. Good luck!

  3. YEAH! That is a great milestone to reach :) I hope that you reach the c-date too :) Good luck and take care of yourself and your little bebes
