Pregnancy Update: 25 Weeks

Ok friends - a peek inside life at 25.5 weeks with twins! 

(pictures were taken 1 day apart - I just think my stripe maternity top conceals my real "size")
How far along? 25.5 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: As of my last appointment, up 24 pounds. I cringe every time I look at the scale in the doctor's office, but according to them I'm perfectly on track for twins... so I'll just swallow my pride. I gained 28 in total with A, so I'm only 4 pounds away from my 41-week weight with him.

Maternity clothes? Ohhhh yes. There are a few pants that I can still wear with my belly band, but by the end of the day I'm pretty uncomfortable. With only 4 weeks left in the office for me, I refuse to buy anymore maternity pants. And I'd say 80% of my tops are maternity, as well.

Stretch marks? Not yet! I haven't been as diligent about my oil this time around, but I'd be very surprised if I make it through this pregnancy without stretch marks.

Miss Anything?  Wine. Definitely wine. And bending over with ease. Painting my toes. You know, the normal stuff.

Movement: Yes.  Baby A is still much more active than B, as they have been for the last 12 weeks or so. Baby B is in a very strange position (laying across the top of my stomach), and is facing my back, so his movements are harder to feel, too.

Food cravings: I can't say anything with consistency. Last week my favorite sandwich was goat cheese, sundried tomatoes and avocado on a roll. This week I'm loving the left over Nestle Crunch Bars from Halloween. Overall, my appetite is nothing like it was with A.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still getting sick in the mornings if I don't take my meds. I've weaned myself to every other day, so I'm pretty proud of myself!

Have you started to show yet: Ha! Hahahaha!

Babies are: TWO BOYS!

Belly Button in or out? Almost out. Sad, sad day.

Wedding rings on or off? On. 

Happy or Moody most of the time:  I'd say overall I'm pretty happy. I try not to complain too much, but C hears it all, so maybe he has a different opinion. I have my days, like anyone else.

Looking forward to:  Finishing the nursery - November is Nursery Month in our house, my 28-week ultrasound and deciding on their names (we are so close!). Also really excited to almost be done with work! 

Babies Update: As of last week, Baby A was measuring at 1lb 12oz, and B was 1lb 10oz. Both, according to our doctors, are healthy and very very active (we've witnessed them kicking each other in the head!). 


  1. You look AMAZING for carrying around two extra humans!!! I have to be honest...I miss being pregnant so I could look cute without having to suck in my stomach!!! Hahaha....but I do enjoy being able to bend over and paint my toes. Just remember the end result! I cannot believe it...3 boys. That's my dream! Glad you're feeling well (even if it's with some meds)!

  2. You look so wonderful and joyful! Love this update!
