I’ve got “Twin Skin” and I’m Proud of it! (Kasondra)

Previous entry here.

I posted back in July when I was blessed with the exciting news that I would be having twins. I had been bleeding and had to go in for an emergency ultrasound. We found out at that time that we were gonna be in for a wild ride. Surprisingly I only gained 35 pounds during the pregnancy (honestly was still 60 pounds heavier than before my 2 year old)….But my stomach was beyond huge. At 35 weeks pregnant my uterus measured 57 1/2 cm and could no longer hold the pressure of my babies. The twins were 5 weeks early weighing 7 1/4 and 5 1/2 pounds. I am now 5 weeks postpartum…And though I am yet another victim of the “twin skin dilemma”….I am beyond proud of the 3 beautiful children that thsi body has given to me….And I wear my stretchmarks proudly….As should all of you beautiful mommies….. The pictures below are of my belly at 32 weeks pregnant…. The 2 beautiful babies that came from that big o belly…. the proud big brother…. 8 days postpartum and 5 weeks postpartum.

    Congrats! You look great! I have twin sons who are now 16 months. I gained 68 lbs and gave birth at 35 weeks as well. It took me 6 months+ to lose the weight and get back in the 120’s again. I will always have a little pooch, but it’s a good reminder of what my body went through to produce these miracles. Enjoy all 3 of your babies!

    OH, I love you! Thank you for saying that at the end. We should all be proud! You are beautiful, and your babies are beautiful! I have twins myself, and my tummy dosen’t /didn’t look that good.

    I’ve got twins too – and no stretch marks, now how is that for luck or good genes!!! My boys are 20 months now and it is such a blessing to have twins. Mine too came at 35 weeks when I literally burst and my twin 1, Levi, showed us all he was fed up of boy 2, Micah, taking up all the room. Hope you are all doing really well – we are,and are enjoying every day. The best thing with my boys is how different they are considering they are twins. They are pure magic. Wishing you all the best :)
