25 weeks 4 days pregnant with twins – bump pictures!!



16 May – 25 weeks 4 days! Three days ago, for those who aren’t so good with the calender math.

This next picture isn’t the best bump profile shot, but it makes me laugh because it looks like I have a SHELF. You see it? Down where I am not holding the fabric of the shirt against the bump?


Other side, without shelf:


While I sit here and wait for the pictures to upload, I pass the time by watching my stomach. Yes, it is moving all over the place, and not just from giant kicks – it appears Torre is just shifting around in there. This results in gentle, tiny, wavelike movements that are clearly visible even though I have both a belly bra AND a shirt on. I don’t often see Mano’s shifting movements, as he is below my line of sight. I feel them, though. Aww. And awe.


WOW is my bump sticky outy.


Finally, I am debating about a series of bathtime shots. They are tastefully done, not like porno. I swear. But I am a wee bit leery of posting them. Perhaps I will put up just one, the only one showing only bump (essentially). This was taken on 12 May, so 25 weeks pregnant exactly. This is what my bump looked like (a week ago today) when I was flat on my back!


Still feel slightly funny about posting this, and now I wonder what the point is – because you can’t see the rest of my body for a comparison, can this actually be called a bump picture? I say yes, particularly as it is The Bump ™ up close and personal. I have another lovely, lovely picture TMD took which is a wider shot (hands over the relevant boobies and bushie) and I may have another of these taken closer to my due date.

Bathtime is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, not only because I am the least in pain in the bath. But it’s a time where I am on my back, looking at my bare stomach, and can really see the babies moving. It’s a very connecting sort of thing. Last night I also called them by their secret names (ie their ‘real names’ we think we have decided on. No, we aren’t telling. Don’t ask.) and that felt like some sort of magnificent miracle.

Almost seems too sacred or something, though, so for the most part we still call them Mano and Torre.

    Those are some great shots! I’m loving the bathroom pic in a non-perverted way!

    I can’t wait to see pictures of the babies outside the belly!

    Great photos and cute bump!

    And I think you’re 100% justified in keeping names secret. We are doing the same — in part because we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, and even then, we have 2 boy names and 2 girl names and are waiting until we meet this particular baby to decide which of the two options fits best. Thus, we don’t have A secret name for the baby, but it is driving my poor mother CRAZY not to know our top picks. Too bad, she’ll find out in a month or so. πŸ™‚

    • existere Says:

      I can relate! We have a short of shortlist, but don’t want to fully commit to anything till we see their faces. My mom is nutcasey about wanting her name as the baby girl’s middle name. Um, no. But guilt.

  3. Jenny Says:

    PS – you could also think about hiring a photographer who specializes in maternity photography to do photos that have both you AND TMD in them. That’s what we’re going to do! πŸ™‚

    • existere Says:

      I would love to do this, but I am crazy re: due dates and when they will come. I really just need an arty farty friend to take these pictures every week so that we will end up with pictures as close to the due date as possible. See, I am crazy. Also sadly lacking in local arty farty friends.

    I love the bump pictures. The bath tub one is great. I wish I had thought of that.

    We were the opposite with our name. Even before we knew for sure it was a girl we had the name picked out and after we found out even people at my office we calling Lily by name.

    If you want to keep your names secret I can’t blame you. Its such an important thing.

    • existere Says:

      I suppose our plan is to wait to see their faces before we commit! Also names seems to be the only thing certain people care about – and I know we would be opening ourselves up for stressy talks with my mother regarding them. That, perhaps, should be the topic for today’s blog entry…

    Nic and I love the bathtub shot. Nic likes that you have a double decker bump πŸ™‚

    • existere Says:

      The bathtub shot is proving quite popular. Iiiiiiiiiiiiinteresting. I like it too, though!!

      I like having a double decker bump as well. It’s so much better than if it was a bendy bus sort of bump. Go Routemaster!

  6. Em Says:

    Great photos!!!! Im pregnant with twins too, but Im only 19 weeks and my bump is not still as big as yours πŸ™‚

    You look great! I still dont feel my twins moving, sometimes a rumble very subtle but that’s it! I listen to their hb everyday though πŸ™‚

    Keep in touch and posting photos πŸ™‚

    Best of luck!
