Well…..if you’re interested…here are pictures my ever growing belly during my twin pregnancy. You are warned; there’s a whole lot of selfies here :)

(also, please note that I don’t have belly photos from weeks 4 to 14 – aarrrghhh, iPhone crashed and clearly I don’t do backups often enough)

20 kg!! :)

Ok, so I did lose the baby weight fairly quickly in my first pregnancy too, but 20 kgs in 10 days?! Thank you thank you thank you :):) Goes to show exactly how much excess fluids I was carrying. Still got 5-6 kgs to go, and I’m in no rush – but I must admit I feel so so much lighter on my feet (duuhh…naturally!) And a bonus – I can actually fit my engagement ring on my finger again too! :) And best of all – two gorgeous baby girls to cuddle and kiss all day :):)
