What It's Like Having 1 Baby After Twins

I’ve been wanting to write a post like this for a while now! Comparing what is has been like having one baby after having twins. I know a lot you have twins and have been on the fence having a third. 1. I know you are all afraid of having twins again. If you have fraternal twins then your odds are a lot higher having a second set than if you have identical twins. Our girls are identical so I knew there was still a change to have another set but I knew I wanted more kids so I was willing to have 4 if that’s what was in the cards for us! And 2. You have PTSD after having twins and don’t want to go through it again. Kidding. Kind of. Having twins in the newborn stage is really stressful, it’s constant and just a lot to manage. So I know a lot of you are just not wanting to have to go through it all over again.

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

What is the difference between your twin pregnancy and this pregnancy?

That is the most common question I get asked these days so I decided to write a full post on what has been the same and what has been different. Sometimes it feels like I was just pregnant and then other days that time in my life feels forever ago. I even started watching some of my old pregnancy updates to compare the two and also see how big I was at different times. Now, I’m not quite in my third trimester yet, almost, but here is what I’ve realized about the two pregnancies up until this point. *And after finishing this post I am seeing how different they have been! I have been telling most people they have actually been a lot alike but now I’m realizing they have been pretty different.

Maternity Shoot

We are a month away!!! Holy moly it is getting so surreal to know we are going to be holding our baby girls in such a short time. Even though I feel so yucky I really wanted to have some pictures taken with Andrew to remember this time in our lives. This pregnancy has definitely not been what I was expecting. Ever since we found out it was twins, I feel like we jumped on a rollercoaster of emotions. From awful morning (*more like all day) sickness, to an extremely achy body, the whole pregnancy glow thing just wasn't for me! But on the flip side, everything with the girls has been above and beyond. They are in the 70th percentile for size and have been so healthy this entire time. With so many risks associated with my type of twin pregnancy, we are very lucky to have had such a smooth ride. I can't thank all of you enough for your continued support over these last 8 months.

25 Weeks

We have made it to 25 weeks! I just had a check up appointment with my high risk specialist and everything is going perfectly! I feel so fortunate that the babies are both growing at the same pace and we haven't had any complications yet.
