Here we are in the early stage, when I had to pinch my belly to try and get something. Notice how close together my fingers are.
Then came the three month belly shot when I didnt need to pinch anything. My hands relaxed and all my fingers still touched.

TMI Alert: My naked belly is presented in this post. While I've cropped as much nakedness as I could, my apologies if you see something you weren't expecting. This is in response to a few emails I've received asking about how I've grown with twins. Nine pounds sounds like a ninny amount of weight, but prepare yourself... It's scary!
Come the end of month 4, my hands could no longer touch, although I could still make the heart. And notice those newly formed stretchmarks that are mostly hidden. They represented the start of new stretchmarks. I guess these babies wanted their own mommy-scars. :)
And here we are on Friday, at 19w5d, ending the fifth month with a bag. My hands can no longer touch and create the heart. I made the statement to Peter that I wasnt really as big as I thought and he laughed. (There is a second picture, sans my hands, that I cant post... I really do look like a house, but there's some boobage that I cant crop out and maintain the good belly shot, so you can take my word for it.) So yes, bedrest has made me completely unselfaware. When I see my belly in the mirror or in pictures, it strikes me that there are two human beings in there. But laying down, I can still see my feet and dont "feel" big. Even though only one pair of maternity pants still fits (not that I'm wearing pants that often) and when I go out, my bra smushes me.
Well, my dear sweet love just made me stuffed grape leaves.... Mmmmm....
