Pregnancy is HARD. Some women love being pregnant. Like every moment of it; none of the other stuff seems to have any effect on them. I am not one of these women. Pregnancy sucks. Yes, I was thrilled to discover we were going to have a baby (the 2 babies thing took a little longer to get used to), but really, the 10 month journey was really difficult for me, physically and emotionally. I generally feel comfortable in my own skin. And then all of a sudden my body was not my own. Honestly my favorite part of this pregnancy was the amazing research study in which I participated. The Twin Fetal Growth Development Study was awesome! The researchers and sonographer were terrific and I learned so much more about the science of growing babies than was possible on my own. I’m so proud to be a part of it.
In any case, enjoy the following photos of me and my pregnant belly!
That was it! The babies arrived at 37 weeks and 5 days. Looking back I still can’t believe I carried them for 38 weeks.
