Sorry this post is a little later than usual. Ive spent the first few days of the summer holidays at my parent house, which they moved into less than a fortnight ago, so no internet access for me.
Have made it to the 24 week mark – hooray! I always feel a little more relaxed when I get this far, as I know the babies have at least a chance of survival if born now, which is better than no chance at all. I still have a good feeling that the twins will stay inside for a good while yet, so am not really worrying about prematurity.
My energy levels seem to have picked up again, whether thats due to the chocolate consumption or being more relaxed whilst at my parents, knowing I have extra hands to help, I dont know, but its good to not feel tired all the time.
The babies are still very active and can evidently hear whats going on outside, as my DH spent about 10 minutes LOUDLY talking to them through the belly last week. Telling them to be boys- like thats going to work!! Ha Ha. Well, for about 15 minutes afterwards it felt like there was a pirahna feeding frenzy in my tummy – they obviously recognise DHs voice! It was crazy. It was lovely though.
Sleeping is becoming more of a challenge, as I roll from side to side for some time attempting to get comfortable, I am eventually falling asleep though. I can hardly imagine what its going to be like in 3 months time…..fun
As for Stretch marks – well, the holiday is over! They have started re-appearing now. I knew it wouldnt last, and its no real suprise as Ive had them with every pregnancy. Its just the price I pay for having healthy babies – and its a price Im happy to pay.
