27 Weeks Twin Belly Bump VeganOur last week in the 2nd Trimester, hard to believe next week we will be celebrating our last trimester of this vegan twin pregnancy.  Things have been rather smooth this week but there have been some changes due to the weight of the twins and my overall  mobility.  As you can tell by the photos, the twins have definitely grown this week.  It’s rather fun now going out in public, people are very polite and tend to ask if we are having a boy or girl.  When I mentioned 1 of each, the moment of silence and confusion is priceless.  Click on the link if you are interested in finding out more information about my vegan twin pregnancy.

A Shortened Cervix: What Does This Mean in Pregnancy?

Tags

As you are sitting, waiting with a look of patience (although secretly inside you are as impatient as a child in queue at the grocery store) to find out the results of your latest perinatologist ultrasound results.  After some quick measurements done by your perinatologist, for the second or third time in one appointment, you hear the words “I don’t want to worry you but your cervix has shortened.”  Even though you have no idea what the cervix really does throughout the pregnancy, your heart stops and it is hard to heard the what is being told to you after these words.  What is a cervix and why you should start taking precautions right away?  Click for more information and my experience with a shortened cervix.

1st Perinatologist Appointment: What to Expect

Tags

, , , , ,

If you are like me, you have read just about every book you can get your hands on for your pregnancy (singleton or multiples).  Unfortunately, there is not much information out there on what to expect when going to appointments and asking questions over the telephone while making an appointment isn’t as helpful as one would expect.  As a twin momma-to-be, I have been to many of perinatologist appointments and feel as though I am becoming an expert.  Hence, I would love to share my experience of my first perinatologist appointment so as to release some of the stress of the unknown for at least this aspect of the pregnancy.

24 weeks twin pregnancy belly bump vegan

24 weeks have come and past, it’s a great feeling to now be in our 25th week.  Each week, as my twin belly grows, this pregnancy feels more well.  In the early days, before showing, it’s a surreal feeling as if everything is a secret.  Now that there is no method known to mankind on how to hide my twin belly bump, it brings the truth to light and makes it feel like an announcement to the world each step outside the door. It doesn’t bother me though as it feels more safe with the outside world knowing I’m with babies.  Along with showing, there are some newer complications and milestones which occurred this week.

Note:  Whew!  Look at that belly!  Love it so much!  These photos are copyright protected, you must have written and signed permission from me to post or share in a repost on another site.  All photos are taken early on the first day of the next week, sans makeup and any special hair treatment.  Pregnancy makes a woman so gorgeous, I fully embrace every second of my appearance during this time.

Vegan Protein Pancakes: 5 Ingredients

Vegan flourless protein pancakes recipe

Protein, protein, protein, it’s really a good portion of what I take into consideration when making a meal at home nowadays.  Pre-pregnancy I did not take much care to know the exact amount of protein grams I take in daily however now I am building two vegan babies, I have to have three times the amount.  My OB/GYN states every gram of protein taken in, the twins will definitely steal from my body so it’s important to take in a great deal to make sure they grow properly.  Thankfully my doctor has no issues with me being vegan, I am very blessed with a great doctor.  So with this in mind, I now incorporate protein into all my older recipes.  Genki Husband loves pancakes, so to continue to spoil him but still get my protein for the day I have started to make these protein pancakes.  Perfect for a vegan pregnancy!

23 weeks twin pregnancy belly bump vegan

23 weeks now complete, hard to believe we are now in what is called the “vitality week”.  This is a big week to go into since it means our twins now have a 50-70% chance of survival if born early (praying for the long haul though).  A multiple pregnancy, such as this one, is considered high risk so every day closer to a heathy birth is another day of blessings.  We can’t wait to meet our twins but we will wait until they are healthy and ready to come naturally, so for now we share with all of you all that we do know about them.  This week we had another perinatologist appointment and will share more information about our findings.
