18 Weeks Twins Pregnancy Update

Eighteen Weeks!

A few things about this pregnancy at this point:

I am feeling great for the most part.  So much less nausea this trimester, as long as I eat about every 2-3 hours.  If I wait longer than that, I almost always pay for it.  

I am measuring about 3 weeks ahead (21 weeks), which is normal with twins, so I am likely to be enormous by the time they are born.  

As of my appointment on Wednesday, they are both doing well, and looking good and healthy (which is a huge relief every appointment).  

One of the benefits of twins is that I am going to have two ultrasounds every two weeks (one quick on at the OBGYN's office, and one at the specialist's).  I will get to watch them grow up before they are born! 

I am already feeling pretty big, and am on the hunt for some good stretchy shirts.  So, let me know if you have any great maternity places that you shop.  I love the idea of eco-friendly and something that can be worn after pregnancy, but that might be reaching for the stars.  Anyway, if you have suggestions, let me know.  

I re-reading this fabulous book about multiple pregnancy that my insurance company sent me.  A friend in Texas had recommended it, and I got it from my library and read it in like 2 days, but having my own copy has been really nice.  If anyone is looking for a great multiples pregnancy book, it is called "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads.  It is very helpful.


  1. Congrats!! I don't think I have ever commented on your blog before, but I have followed you (via Janssen) for a while. My b/g twins are 18 months and it's been an adventure. I hope your pregnancy continues to go smoothly. Good luck!

    1. It is amazing how many people have twins once twins are on your radar! I feel like everyone I know is connected to twins somewhere! Thanks for following along, and I would love any advice for twins! Goodness knows I will need it!

  2. Congratulations! :) Have you heard of LuLaRoe? Their stuff is great for pregnancy and beyond because there are so many ways to style it. The consultant I usually buy from is phasing out so her stuff is on major sale if you want to check some of it out. https://shoptheroe.com/party/1495363030p/

    1. Thanks! I have heard of LuLaRoe! I haven't ever thought about buying any thing from there, really, even though I have heard good things about it from friends, but I will have to check it out! Thanks for sending the link!

  3. I will get to watch them grow up before they are born!
