Does this mean I've gestated one child?

Today marks 19 weeks... I am officially half way to welcoming these two babies into the world. And for my poor friend Allison, whom I torture endlessly by not taking regular belly pics, this is what the beast looks like today.


For reference, here is what my belly looked like when I was 18 1/2 weeks with Bean.

And 24 weeks with Bean.


I am feeling lots of kicks, which even the second time around is incredibly awesome and super freaky-deaky at the same time. There are two people growing UNDER MY SKIN who are squirming and poking at my insides. I can watch my belly jump and shift as those people growing UNDER MY SKIN make themselves right at home.

And this isn't supposed to feel like Alien?

girl, you look GREAT! I am sure it feels bigger to you, but I think you have an adorable belly!

Glad the boys are doing well and enjoy those kicks! I cannot even imagine how cool two must feel! :)

Red said...

Great belly pics! You look great!

I can't wait to feel baby kicks again, that is the best bit of pregnancy (besides the baby at the end bit).

Love the bump! Well, both of them.

It must feel very alien-ish to have a partial soccer team in your belly.

Michelle said...

Wow! You look great!

MissMVK said...

Omg, I am Shamu compared to you. Seriously. Whale-like. I like you otherwise I would kind of hate you. A lot.

Yes, the kicks are awesome!!! The whole having people inside me kind of freaks me out too if I think about it too much. ;)

Guess what - we finally picked and LOVE our second twin name! Wahoo!

I love your belly pic in your cute jammies. So exciting that you feel them bouncing around. Wow it seems like time flies so quickly when it's not your own calendar you are watching, ;-)

Kate said...

You look great!! I'm so glad that you posted pics!

Allison said...

Thank you kindly! :)

You have a cute pregnant belly!

Coffeegrl said...

How cute! And I thought one set of baby kicks was freakish and alien-like!

K said...

Looking Good!

I am surprised how much you showed at 18 weeks with Bean. I'm at 16.5 weeks and I still fit into my regular jeans (though they are tight). I wonder if this is normal. Maybe my torso is really big? Hmm.

In any event you look great :)

Awwwww, look how cute that belly is!
Although, it does annoy me that you have TWO PEOPLE GROWING UNDER YOUR SKIN and your skinnier than me.
It's great to come on here and find everything going so well. I'm so happy for you sweetie.
If I don't talk to you before then, have a great Thanksgiving! And squeeze the Bean for me!

WOOHOOO look at the beautiful belly!!! You look amazing! I always thought it was SO crazy to watch my belly shift and move and that was with just ONE person in there. CRAZY!!!!

YAY for the half way mark!
*HUGS*

Martha said...

Cute belly shot!! You look beautiful, Sunny.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Nicky said...

Your pregnancy is going really fast (to me, who does NOT have two people under her skin). You look great!

Kristi said...

I was just wondering when you would post belly pics! You look awesome. I just went and looked at my first belly pic with the twins, taken at 18 weeks, and I have a pretty even boob-to-belly ratio. Your photos are much cuter!

Jen said...

Oh yeah, you're looking bigger than before. And if I recall, didn't you have a pretty good sized bump with Bean! And he was like 10 pounds right? I think you may be gestating giants. Alien giants.

Very cute. You don't look big to me at all.

It's so exciting when you feel the baby start to move---can't imagine with two!

Lisa said...

Your belly rocks!

Sarah said...

Georgie's kicks were much more serious than Halle's since my belly was already stretched and he was enormous. He really gave me a run for my money while I sat at work. I cannot even imagine what the romper room called your uterus is feeling like with two this time around!!!!

Stephanie Faris said...

I always wondered how pregnancy felt. Like Alien? :-)

tragicoptimist said...

You really do look great! Congrats on getting half way through, and thanks for posting the pics.

Aunt Becky said...

Dude. You look like me now. Only I'm pregnant with a burrito, not a baby.

Shelley said...

How much fun it must be to feel 2 little ones kicking inside you! Your belly looks great. Keep up the good work! :)

gerardinebaugh said...

Congratulations! As long as the boys are kicking and moving all is well in the world. You look great!

WiseGuy said...

Well, you look really fab....Maybe you could eat tennis rackets for lunch?

:-)

Your comments on my blog make me smile...everytime!

Definitely looking bigger this go round!
