17 weeks pregnant with Twins… Hello from the Mothership!

Welcome to The Twinkle Diaries!

This is my very first post and today I am 17 weeks and 6 days pregnant with fraternal twins — our darling Twinkles :)

It’s been a long, long journey to get to this point, but little by little I’m starting to believe that this is actually happening and my boy and I are finally going to be parents.

I have been dithering for some time about whether I should start a blog, charting my pregnancy. I was too scared to, at first… it was almost like tempting fate and I was convinced that if I started to get too comfortable with the notion that I was pregnant, it would all start to unravel again and I would lose these precious babies.

We had a consultant’s appointment yesterday and the midwife let us hear the Twinkles heartbeats with a doppler… amazing to think that my body has 3 heartbeats at the moment! I am like Dr Who (actually, I think he only had two!).

Everything is looking really positive; my belly is growing as it should and — apart from stuffy sinuses — I am feeling really well and happy. I am booked in for my 20 week scan in 10 days time. That’s the biggie and will show whether the babies are healthy and have no problems. I am keeping everything crossed that they’ll pass their tests with flying colours. I love these Twinkles more than words can say, even though they are only currently the size of two sweet potatoes! What an impact these tiny people are having on our lives — and they’ve not even been born yet!
