The belly!

I keep getting asked by friends and family members (that are far away and don't have the wonderful privilege of seeing me everyday), if I am getting big yet...... well here is your answer!! YES!!!!!!! The top pic is me 2 weeks ago.... not much to see just a little bump. Bottom pic was me today (Abbie took the pic for me, so I was talking her through it). Anyhow, I am shocked at the difference two weeks has made in the size of my baby belly! I have heard from other twin moms and my doc, that at 20 weeks I will be the same size as me nine months pregnant. It didn't make much sense to me at first thought, but when you do the math and add two twenty week babies... it all makes sense. I have started doing that math today and realize I have two 14+ week babies so I guess my belly will just be big. I will just have to get use to the idea of MAJOR stretch marks! I think it will all be worth it in the end..... After all what is our purpose as women on this earth....?!

Oooh! I love the belly!! I totally agree with you on the whole stretch mark thing. I got some when I went a week over due with Chase, and now Matthew calls them my beauty marks. Yes, it's cheesy but I love it!

I was seriously getting on your blog to tell you to post some pictures of the pregnant belly... but you are way ahead of me. How is everything going with the pregnancy? I can't believe you will have 2 full grown babies in your teeny tiny tummy.
We would love it if you came to visit. Do you realize it is only about a 5 hour drive? We may be going to St. George in the next month so we'll keep in touch.

You are a beautiful pregnant woman! You probably don't feel so hot, but you do sparkle! What a wonderful...and humbling experience motherhood is! I hate being pregnant, but I LOVE the aftermath! You look great...strut that belly with pride cause your a mommy! And those stretch marks are just killer war wounds!
