Humorously Large - Twin Pregnancy
Yes, you will get fairly humorously large in all probability.
It does get hard to walk, wipe your bits on the loo and certain grooming habits below your equator will go out the window.
Okay, so you may think now that you'll be different, but believe me I normally Keep Things Well Pruned and my Lady Garden ended up needing a very VERY thorough weeding by the time I could actually reach it again.
Dont believe me yet?
I'll give you some helpful stats on size.
I was term size at 28 weeks. My final fundal height (measurement of the size of the bump that you'll have at your obstetric visits, term is normally 37 to 40 cm) was 50cm. My waist was 1.3metres/52 inches (it's now back to 65cm/26 inches).
I gained over 30 kilograms (sixty plus pounds). I ate for my nation. I was ravenous all the time. Yes, my bed was full of the detritus of nocturnal meals I didn't even recall having.
I'm normally fairly small and I was terrified I would never go back, but I did. I was in my pre-pregnancy clothes (albeit with a collection of stretchmarks, but such is life) by six weeks postpartum. You WILL see your feet again, promise.
That's me at 29 weeks, in what was to become my favourite tent.
That's me at 32 weeks. Yes, the maternity shirt failed utterly in it's job by this point. Additionally, my butt and boobs were massive, although given they were dwarfed by my Fetus Module, it's hard to tell.
That's 33 weeks
34 weeks, at which point I stopped taking any more photographs because, well. My belly button was now pointing SOUTH.
That is 11 weeks postpartum.
As for other pregnancy related matters, you'll get rather a lot of ultrasounds, which I used to love. Although believe it or not after a while you do tend to stop cooing at the little faces and toes. You just see them so much that it all gets a bit 'Oooh fingers...lemme seeee. Yep, still ten. Good to know'.
