Twin Tummy

pregnant twin tummy

This is me.

A very pregnant me with my twins, six years ago now. Actually it was around this time of year in 2009 that I found out I was pregnant, although I didn’t know I was expecting twins until quite a few weeks later!

How big is that tummy?

This was taken a couple of days before I went in to have my C-section in August, and by this point (35 weeks) I’d had enough. My tummy was incredibly heavy, as you can imagine it would be with two good sized babies inside, I was uncomfortable and everything was a struggle, but on the flip side of that I was also very attached to my bump and I didn’t want it to go.

I loved being pregnant with all of my children. Four children but three pregnancies! It’s such a beautiful, special time that I found indescribably magical. I know not everyone feels this way but apart from the early weeks with this one when I didn’t feel well, I loved every minute.

My twin pregnancy was obviously double that feeling. I felt brilliantly smug and clever at times that I had conceived twins, as though it pushed my Mummy status up a notch! I was just so proud.

However, my pregnancy was fraught with complications from the start and was very stressful. I needed to do all I could to ensure the wellbeing of my tiny sons and by this time in my pregnancy, after weekly specialist scans, I knew I was almost there. My boys had got to a good weight and this was the point my doctors had all hoped for so it was really the happiest time of my pregnancy.

After months of worrying, my identical twin boys were born healthy :)

I did love my tummy though, I look at this now and want to go back in time to experience it all over again, just for a little while!

  1. What a great pictures, that is one lovely big bump =)

  2. Awww I miss my tummy as well. You look so happy in this photo =) #magicmoments

  3. Such a lovely photo, I can remember one of my NCT friends going right to 39 weeks with her twins – she was begging them to take the babies out by then! #whatsthestory

  4. Wow, you look amazing!

  5. Wow, how did you carry that big bump around with you? I was tiny with both of mine but couldn’t walk or do anything at the end! You look fab x

      It wasn’t easy especially when the weather, I had terrible swollen ankles too which weren’t helping lol x

  6. You had a fabulous bump. I miss having a bump sometimes, I felt glorious when I was pregnant x

  7. You didn’t look that big, but you did look AMAZING. Wow, just wow

  8. Great photo!! I do love the feeling of pregnancy in the middle trimester but the rest of it I was either sick or feeling uncomfortable and I’m quite happy to not experience either of those again!!

  9. I know just how you feel! I have a similar, though way less glamourous photo of me just before i had the triplets.

  10. You look flipping awesome for being a few days away from twins! Like a pregnancy unicorn… :p

  11. You look amazing in this photo, how lovely to have had twins too xx

  12. That’s an impressive bump – well done for managing to stand up! I was huge with just the one, I can’t imagine what it must be like to have twins!

  13. What a lovely photo. You look very happy. I can imagine that having twins was worrying during your pregnancy-I found it worrisome enough with a single baby in there.

  14. You looked fabulous. Actually not as huge as I would expect for twins

  15. Wow what a bump! I love being pregnant too, even in those last weeks when your bump is so heavy and exhausting – it is such a previous time isn’t it.

  16. For someone who is carrying twins you look great in that picture so glowing.

  17. You looked amazing! I was huge and I only had one! x

      It’s crazy how people differ with bumps, yet have similar weight babies! I was tiny with my first son but he was a 9 pounder lol! All baby! x

  18. You look very proud of your bump – though I am sure you must have been feeling pretty uncomfortable by that stage!

  19. Wow you have a small tummy for twins I think and looked fab x

  20. You look great, I never looked great in any of my pregnancies and certainly wasn’t a time I blossomed. I know I couldn’t do it again!

  21. You do look beautiful in this photo!

  22. You have an amazing bump – love it, so beautiful. I wish my bump days weren’t over sometimes, my kids are 7 and 9 now…seems so long ago!

  23. You look radiant – I am almost disappointed we never produced twins

  24. You are positively glowing! It is such a special time, feeling life growing inside you. Glad it all turned out okay for you.

  25. I would never have guessed you were pregnant with twins!
