WEEK BY WEEK TWIN PREGNANCY: 32 WEEKS

The bags under my eyes in this bump photo say it all. Growing two tiny humans is exhausting. Some days I feel like I have been pregnant forever and other days it only seems like yesterday I was throwing the ClearBlue stick at Jay explaining ‘we might have a little issue…’ Oh if I’d only known then that our little issue might be x2. I have successfully made it to 32 weeks pregnant with our little modi twins and looking back, I’ve really not had that bad of a pregnancy. I have however started to really notice my limitations. Not…

Pregnancy Dreams: The Weird and Wonderful

I thought I’d stray a little from my usual type of post as this was something that no one had ever mentioned or warned me about prior to getting pregnant! Despite friends already having babies and attending all my sex education and biology classes as a teenager, you’d have thought at some point I would have heard about pregnancy dreams… I’ve always had a very good imagination.

Week by Week Twin Pregnancy: 28 Weeks

The past few weeks have been quite the rollercoaster – everything had been going smoothly but then suddenly I think ‘having twins’ caught up with us among everything else we had going on. The good news is the team of doctors and midwives at our hospital are brilliant and gave us all the care we needed. At the end of week 26 towards the start of week 27 I noticed they hadn’t moved anywhere near as much and we were brought in for testing, both babies appeared fine but there was lots of assessments done just in case. At our…

Pregnancy Books and Apps

Back when I first found out I was pregnant (and at that point was only anticipating one baby), one of the very first things my Mum treated me too was a pregnancy book. I know a lot of people say they are a waste of money but I love reading and I knew nothing about babies so it seemed like a good place to start! Things obviously changed when we found out we were having twins and my reading material then doubled, if you excuse the terrible pun. Some were more useful than others, so I thought I’d give you…
