My 17 week belly

My 17 week belly

This is my first pregnancy and we weren't even trying..what a shock! We couldn't be happier, and should find out the genders in about a week (if the babies cooperate). In this picture I am 17 weeks and have gained about 13 pounds. As far as we know they are fraternal...haven't felt movement yet but I can't wait to! (apparently both placentas are on the front of the uterus which may block me from feeling those little kicks for a while)

This is my 2nd pregnancy,I haven't had my ultra sound yet but i will at 19 wks.I am a fraternal twin so i was only half surprised when i found out i was carring twins. As for my bump I look about the same as you but i carry lower and my abdomen isnt hardening yet just the top half. Congrats on your babies!

Mom of one, expecting two
by: MKM

I go today for my ultrasound and I am hoping to find out what my twins are..I am 17.5 weeks and his is my second pregnancy. Everyone is telling me that I am getting big but I'm not much bigger than you are and we are pretty excited to see what we are having. My son is 3 years old and he is saying he wants to buy his baby brother and baby sister at daycare and my ob is thinking that one is a girl and one is a boy but who knows. They are suppose to be identical because they are sharing the same placenta but they are in 2 different sacs so they can eithr be identical or fraternial in my case. Good luck to all the moms expecting twins. God bless.

I am 18 weeks and get to find out Monday what they are! They didn't tell me much at my first ultrasound besides I was having twins and they were the right size!

I feel so huge!! I am about your size too!! When I went in at 16 wks, they told me I was measuring 22 wks! I am going to be bigger than a house!

The weird thing is that I haven't gained yet.... The doctors don't seem concerned, but I will find out when I go and see my main doc on Monday... I haven't been puky at all so that doesn't make sense. I just don't eat how I used to eat. I have trouble finishing a kid's meal lol

I wish you luck!!! You look great!

Twin Pregnancy
by: Anonymous

You look great! I am 17 weeks with Twins myself and will be finding out tomorrow if boys or girls. We do know they are identical b/c they are sharing the same placenta. I'm not feeling much movement yet, just a flutter here or there. Good Luck and Congrats!!
