21wks    22wk5d belly

21 weeks                                                          22 weeks + 5 days

 

23wk4dbelly

                                            23 weeks + 4 days

i asked mitch if he would take my picture last time i did a belly pic and he said, “can you at least smile and look at the camera, all the other pictures look like mug shots!” that was sweet of him wasn’t it? so, i looked and smiled this time! lovely, isn’t it? when i saw the picture i remembered why i don’t like to look, ….the neck fat rolls! so attractive, right!? i think i like the mug shots better!

 

so, i am beginning to fill out in my belly! i haven’t taken one this week, yet (26 weeks), but i will because i think i have reached the point where i have never been this big! right before getting in the shower tonight i looked in the mirror at my bare belly and my jaw dropped! i didn’t think it was possible for my skin to stretch that much and my belly to look that big! i had to go show mitch how big it was! i couldn’t believe it!

boy am i in for a huge shock over the next few months!!

Those aren't fat rolls in your neck, silly - that's just skin! Get yourself a double chin, and then we'll talk about fat rolls . . .

You don't look that big to me, especially for having twins!!!

MAHINA- there are TWO BOYS IN THERE! and you look hot. seriously, i think we are the same feeling so "big" but you really do look great for being so far along with twins. i know you may feel huge, but you look wonderful!
like you suggested, i had betsy take some quick pics of me yesterday but i don't really like any of them! but will post them, it is good to have a pic to see how you really look!

Yes, you look great. Yes, you will get bigger but it's because of TWO babies. And it's temporary! You'll be back to your slim self in no time.

Mahina you look great, and it was so great to see you when you came to PDX. I sure miss you guys! And considering you are carrying twins, I think you look great!

Just last night at dinner Eden asked me how big my belly got when I was pregnant with her. So I pulled out the "on the way to the hospital" picture. It's amazing what our bodies can do. I think your big belly is gorgeous.
