Twin Pregnancy Diary – 14 weeks 2 days


I can’t believe we’re in the fourteenth week already. This pregnancy seems to be going super-fast and yet it still feels like yesterday that I went to the Early Pregnancy Unit fully convinced that I was about to be told I was miscarrying again. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine I would be carrying twins. Not for one moment did I suspect it.

The shock has pretty much worn off now but I do admit that I have to pinch myself sometimes. I only pinch myself in theory, not in practise, as I have a very low pain threshold. But I do pinch myself as if to make sure it’s all true. Really? Are we really expecting twins? Two of them?! Oh yes we are!

My belly is popping.


Twins 14 weeks exactly

That photo was taken on Saturday when I turned 14 weeks exactly.
I’m already feeling big.  Much noticeably bigger than I was at this stage with all my previous pregnancies.  Then again, all my previous pregnancies were singletons, so I expect that would have something to do with it. 
I still wonder how big I’m going to end up.  It will be… interesting, to say the least.  And no doubt, terribly uncomfortable.  Still, at least I’ll be carrying the twins well through the pregnancy.
I’m still feeling very tired and it didn’t help that I had a really stressful week last week.  I’m not feeling sick though, instead wanting to eat anything and everything in sight.  I’m going to end up the size of an elephant by the end of the month, I’m sure of it. 
I am going to make an educated guess that Pringle sandwiches as a staple food during pregnancy probably isn’t a wise nutritional choice.  I have no excuse apart from the fact that they taste nice. 
Perhaps I ought to publish my Twin Pregnancy Diary as a book once my pregnancy is over?  It can be the everything-you-shouldn’t-do-during-your-twin-pregnancy manual for expectant mothers.  And then they can use it as a door-stop or to wedge under a wobbly table leg.  Now there’s a thought…

  1. I just came across your site. What a blessing to have so many kids! I have 8 (singles) so far and would love more, God willing. We thought twice that we were having twins only to find out there was "just" one. haha Still hoping we will have twins one day 🙂 Looking forward to following your twins pregnancy!
