Growing Babies

This week marks the beginning of my second trimester. And hopefully, some welcome relief from the icky nausea and the constant exhaustion.

I'm definitely growing 2 babies here. My belly is popping out, bellybutton and all. It's only going to be a few months before I am huge and grotesque. I think I'm bigger this time than I was last time. Is that even possible?!
Here I am at 13 weeks now:

And here I was at 13 weeks with L & S:

Both babies are moving a lot. I've been feeling gentle movements for about 3 weeks now. It's become a lot stronger in the last week and now it can actually be felt on the outside of my belly! I feel reassured when I feel them move and I'm cautiously optimistic that I will have 2 healthy, full-term babies again.

In birth-related news, my mother has asked me to come stay with her for 3 months. I could go up to her house in August and stay through Thanksgiving, which is when we usually visit anyway. I'm not sure how I'd feel about having a homebirth at her house but at least I know it's an option.

Another interesting note is that I've been added to the "Bump Watch" at the "You've Got Your Hands Full" website. It's fun for me to see the other moms of multiples that are expecting now. Interestingly enough I also have 2 online friends who are also expecting twins right now so we are sharing this journey together!
