Twin Bumps

WARNING

Apparently, I am a nut about taking pictures of my growing belly. I like to think this is less a consequence of vanity and more the result of a few other things. First, I’m a picture taker by nature. I get it from my dad. I like to document, document, document. Second, when I found out I was having two, I searched like a wild woman for pictures of twin bump progression because I guess I had some sick need to know what kind of damage changes I had just signed myself up for. Third (and probably most importantly), every single one of my closest friends and my entire family live between 300 and 4500 miles away. Not a single one is nearer.

So, I get regular requests for bump pics.

And, lordy, do I take ’em.

Peruse if you so please.

4 weeks: Pajamaed and looking awkward

7 weeks: I decided I wanted to take photos every week in the same location and wearing all black. The result? Eeehhhhh, you'll see. Watch how long it lasts..

19 weeks: Hiking when I shouldn't be. What you don't see is me on the way down, having to lay down every 50 meters because I am so dizzy I'm afraid I'll fall off the mountain. This is when I started taking my OB's advice to slow down seriously.

23 weeks: Apparently, I have grown tired of taking pictures of my belly, so The Artsy Engineer has to sneak them while I'm getting ready for bed. And apparently taking a moment to marvel at the rapid growth.

    Hi Lentil!
    I just stumbled onto your blog and I really enjoyed reading. I appreciate your honesty. Wow, if only we were all that way! I am so happy for you and your cuties and I know you’re going to be a fantastic mommy. I imagine after all you’ve been through, having two will seem like a walk in the park. Keep rocking the blog!

  • Such a beautiful bump you have! ☺️

    LOVE THEM! I’m a bump picture fan too. It’s so amazing to look back at. It was totally 18 weeks when you popped and the growth started. I can’t wait to see this entire series!

  • Gypsy Mama says:

    You look so great! Also, somehow I didn’t realize you were so far away from all your friends and family. Me too. It’s become harder since becoming pregnant, because I feel guilty that my kids won’t grow up around my side of the family. Have you had similar feelings or is it just me?

  • Amber says:

    You are so freaking cute I can hardly stand it! I’m impressed that it took so long for you to start showing with twins! I wasn’t hiding it too well at about the 12-13 week mark. I love all the photos.

  • amh! omg! says:

    Wow amazing! I’m 10 weeks tomorrow and I need to start taking bump photos soon! I’m definitely not showing yet just bloated. So exciting!!!

Help a sister out?
