Twin Pregnancy Bump Journey


When I found out we were having twins I was over the moon, I was excited and a little in shock too! The sad part was that my family were all overseas, and wouldn’t be able to share in the pregnancy journey with me.

Every Monday, my sister would call up and request a photo of “the bump”, which is why I am lucky enough to have a photo gallery of how my twin belly grew and grew and grew!

I know a lot of twin moms want to know what they can expect, so here is a look – almost a photo every week:


In the belly = Approx 11/12 week Twin Ultrasound


I remember the day in front of the tree. I was in pain, uncomfortable and spent the day on the couch. My sister begged for a photo and I reluctantly delivered. Little did I know that that would be the last belly picture, as my water broke that night!

So thank you sista for insisting I get off the couch!

I gained 37 lbs over all, and delivered two healthy baby boys at 36 weeks and 1 day.

It was really fun putting this together and seeing my bump growing all over again. It seems like a lifetime ago! Looking back I look huge, but while I was pregnant, I didn’t feel big at all. You can definitely see when my belly got HUGE, fast!

Good luck to all those pregnant twin moms out there, I hope you enjoy every step of the way. Despite the aches and pains, I know I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Being so far apart all I can say is “Thank goodness” for modern technology, as without it we would have felt so isolated and very left out.

  2. Leigh,
    What a lovely post! How fun to see the “progress!” My favorite is the bump-bump pic! Tee hee!

    I love seeing baby bump photos. I took more photos with my final pregnancy, since I knew it was going to be my last. I tried to take a weekly shot but some weeks I forgot. I need to dig those photos out, I am missing pregnancy just a wee bit.

    I remember when my mom was PG with my twin sisters. Twins are a ton of fun and work.

    This is amazing and beautiful! I wanted to do this during my two pregnancies but never did. If there’s ever a third, I absolutely have to!

  6. Wow! I gained more than that with just one baby! LOVE your ultrasound pic! How cute is that!!!

    Sista the Monday photos really were the best part of your pregnancy for me, and of course coming over for your baby shower. Penny and Jess really did plan an amazing baby shower for you, so much fun was had by all. The Monday photos are so very special to me, I certainly do cherish them….I do have good ideas from time to time ;0) I love you and this really is one of my favourite posts! Thanks to this amazing technology we go to be a part of your pregnancy, even if we are on the other side of the pond.
