The Final 10

Lucky Little 13, who is in the final 10 weeks of her twin pregnancy, has brought it to my attention that I never posted any belly shots after 30 weeks. Hmmmm. I think this was around holiday/hospitalization time and after that everything happened very unexpectedly and quickly around here.

So, here’s the belly progression, plus a bonus shot.

30 weeks pregnant with twins, 144 lbs

31 weeks pregnant with twins, 145 lbs

32 weeks pregnant with twins, 146 lbs

33 weeks pregnant with twins, 148 lbs

34 weeks pregnant with twins, 148 lbs

35 weeks pregnant with twins, front view (holy moly!)

35 weeks pregnant with twins, 150 lbs

6 weeks post pregnancy with 6 week old baby in arms!

I had gained 43 lbs total by the end of 35 weeks. I wouldn’t have minded gaining a bit more but by the 3rd trimester, my appetite was waning and it was really hard to eat a lot. I’ve very thankful to have given birth to healthy babies, despite the earlier than anticipated birth date.

I am also in my own final 10. That is, I’ve lost all of the weight except for 10 pounds. Go breast feeding!

However, as people had warned me….that weight has been redistributed in an entirely different way than it was before.
None of my pants/jeans from pre-pregnancy fit me. As in I can’t even get them over my hips. I can’t imagine they will fit me 10 pounds from now either.
My maternity jeans, which were too tight during the last month of pregnancy, are about to fall off.
I have no idea what to do or what to wear. I was a size 0 when I got pregnant. I wasn’t that size because I tried to be or did some crazy diet. I eat sensibly, I exercise. I was that size because that’s how my body is.
Now, I don’t know what size I’ll end up. I’m perfectly fine with never being that small again, but I’d like to know when it’s safe to go buy some new clothes. I hate to spend money on something that I’ll only wear for another month or so…but at the same time, I have nothing to wear.

What has everyone else done for clothing options in these in between days???
