Announcing twins

Keep calm!

We were over the moon when we realised we were expecting twins. Of course it did take a few weeks to get used to the idea of what this meant, so we first took our time together.
But honestly I was also worried about all the things that could go wrong during the pregnancy, as twin pregnancy can be more complicated. So we were quite late in announcing the news.
Our parents were the first who heard and we announced our news by visiting them and just telling them we were pregnant. They were of course very happy and emotional about it. And only when they got used to the idea we added: by the way, its twins!!
The effect of this was quite nice so we stuck to it when we told others. Every time we said it, we thought it was more hilarious. We really had no idea what we were in for, haha!

Anyway, apparently we could have been a lot more original in the way we told everyone. I found this page with 15 great pictures of how you can announce a twin pregnancy. So if you are expecting twins now, take your pick.
I am very curious though and would love to hear your stories: How did you announce your pregnancy to your family and friends?

Our changing body

We all know a womans’ body changes a lot during pregnancy. The thing that really amazed me (not to say… freaked me out) is what happens to your organs while the baby grows. We know the baby is pushing on our bladder and that this only becomes worse during the pregnancy. But did you realise what happens to our intestines and stomach when women are pregnant?

This beautiful video shows how amazing the female body is. And this is only with one baby, imagine how much more squished your organs get with more than one…
