17 weeks pregnant with Twins… Hello from the Mothership!

Welcome to The Twinkle Diaries! This is my very first post of my pregnancy diary and today I am 17 weeks pregnant with twins.

Or 17 weeks and 6 days pregnant with fraternal twins — if you want to be pedantic.

Our darling Twinkles.

It’s been a long, long journey to get to this point, but little by little I’m starting to believe that this is actually happening and my boy and I are finally going to be parents.

A twin pregnancy diary

I have been dithering for some time about whether I should start a blog, charting my pregnancy.

I was too scared at first; it felt like I was tempting fate. I was convinced that if we started to get too comfortable with the notion that I was pregnant, it would all start to unravel again; I would lose these precious babies.

We had a consultant’s appointment yesterday and the midwife let us hear the Twinkles heartbeats with a doppler. Amazing to think that my body has 3 heartbeats at the moment!

I am like Dr Who (actually, I think he only had two!).

Everything is looking really positive; my belly is growing as it should and — apart from stuffy sinuses — I am feeling really well and happy.

My 20 week scan is booked in for 10 days time.

That’s the biggie and will show whether the babies are healthy and have no problems.

I am keeping everything crossed that they’ll pass their tests with flying colours.

Baby Love

I love these Twinkles more than words can say; even though, at the momnet, they are only currently the size of two sweet potatoes!

What an impact these tiny people are having on our lives; they’ve not even been born yet!

I’m feeling so positive about the future.  

I’m starting to really enjoy my twin pregnancy and look forward to writing all about it in my ‘virtual’ diary!
