18 weeks and 19 weeks pregnant with twins............ I'm rubbish!

18 weeks 19weeks

Well I'm now 19 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I have been avoiding a lot of pregnancy related stuff (not going on forums much etc) as I'm really getting nervous about our scan on Monday.
I can't believe the time is finally here and how quick has it gone already?! But I'm anxious to see they are both growing well and anxious to find out the sex.
I'm starting to get prepared for this non existent consultant appointment and get my facts written down incase I need them (which I am likely too). Found some really interesting things in the new NICE guidelines for twin pregnancy but I will go over that when I have more time.

Here are the NICE guidelines for those interested.

Twin pregnancy

They both seem to be very active, I feel the rolling around and have had the odd foot prodding out! I lent over to get my drink the other night and felt something uncomfortable that was protruding a little... so I pushed it and it quickly moved! I had forgotten this part and I didn't think it would be happening yet! I can feel them kicking from the outside, it's really lovely but strange that it's happening everywhere!

The braxton hicks are still here a lot, I do remember experiencing quite a few of them during Charlottes pregnancy but these are most certainly stronger. I am not worried about them as I know its all good practice. If they get any worse I think I will mention it.

17 weeks 3 days ~ Pregnant with twins

17 weeks 3 days


So yeah this is a late update. Had a week of illness with the girls (well started last Thursday and today seem more themselves). Girls coped so well, and made being sick look easy! But we are all still tired so hoping we manage to catch up on the weekend :)

Twin Pregnancy

My sickness and feeling 'under the weather' symptoms are still here. Twin pregnancy is really taking it out of me. It was a huge struggle to even go to the shop the other day, I feel old!
The kicking is becoming more frequent and can feel them with my hand when I lay down at night, tiny little taps. It's really nice and just makes it feel a little more real, although I still get this wow feeling everytime I think about Twins............. Wow I am having two babies!

I still haven't bought anything or started any real preparation, I just don't feel the urgency and I guess having been there done that I am more relaxed about pregnancy. I do feel though that I need to start thinking about making some sort of plan and get stuff bought! But I am likely going to leave it until after the scan........... and then rush around at 26 weeks!
