It’s bump time, bitches!!

These pictures were taken on Monday (16 March) when I was 16 weeks 6 days pregnant. Versions featuring my head are on Facebook.

First shot, with work clothes:

And then I changed into my post-work goodness and we just stared and stared:

the best picture! so far.

One bare bellied, which goes against everything I am as a person – but in the interest of accuracy:

hardest stomach i'm likely to ever have

Are you happy you waited? Please compliment these pictures – it’s not me you compliment, you know, it’s two innocent, sweet babies who are waiting to have their self-esteem boosted.

GIRL. (Also: no hallumi flair exists. Am I spelling it right?)

Back cramps: ouch.  Had ’em for just over a week now. Is this normal?

In other news, I feel human. I ate like a fucking racehorse yesterday, stayed out with friends till after 10 pm (a feat even pre-pregnancy), and woke up this morning ravenous. I am afraid to be too human and healthy, but I had two days this week with NO vomiting. One of those was yesterday – and I admit to heavy nausea throughout the day, but still.

I had a gorgeous hallumi, lettuce, and tomato GIANT sandwich for dinner alongside a portion of chips. This is the biggest meal I have eaten in four months. FOUR FUCKING MONTHS! Prior to pregnancy, I could have eaten this like three time over.


I also feel mildly energetic. Convinient as TMD is near incapacitated with cramps, but then I figure she feels so bad because I feel so good. Our relationship has always been that way. One of us is always around to be strong when the other needs it.

I am afraid to say it, but I am feeling cautiously optimistic! (Could I hedge my bets any  more?)

We also just threw away my Cyclogest (progesterone). This IS progress.

(My mother said, ‘See, everyone told you this would happen after four months. Everything gets better.’ My midwife says, ‘I think getting sick once a day is as good as it is going to get for you. This’ll probably last the whole time now, as it’s twins.’ Both are right, as while ongoing vomit is sad – ongoing LIMITED vomit is happy.)
