8 Weeks Pregnant With Twins Update

Note: This post was written at week 10 of pregnancy. I should be caught up with real-life posting soon. Meaning you will see a few week updates within the same week as we catch up.Β 

For all the updates go HERE

Week 8 – I really never thought this week would come. After all the morning sickness I was happy to get to week 8 and I started to feel a bit better. The biggest change this week is that I started to SHOW! I was told by my doctor it would happen around week 8 and she was right. I have now found out that I am about 8 weeks ahead in growth which will most likely stay constant throughout my pregnancy. So this week I looked like I am 16 weeks. This week I am shopping deals for the twins – finding deals on diapers and diaper wipes.

Here is an updated photo of the two – can you believe how large they are

 

Both A and B have great heart rates and their growth is right on track. They are starting to look like little humans. Overall it was a great week of getting use to the twin ideas and getting ready to tell Eric’s family the BIG news! We ended up telling them all at the start of week 9 right around Christmas.
