So I came back to this left on my car... Do you reckon they've seen my cankles?😂

Antenatal Class 2 (13 Jul '16)

A week on and I felt even worse!  As you can see from the photo below, I have the oddest shaped tummy (top heavy!) The pain in my ribs was indescribable. The last thing I wanted to do was go to another Antenatal Class, but of course we went! Most of the information was about pain relief, in which I already knew I was having a C-Section, so was irrelevant.

Our 8th Scan & 1st Antenatal Class (06 Jul '16)

The 6th July is my mums Birthday, so I thought it would be special to take her along to our scan appointment. It was such a beautiful weather day, but my back was feeling close to breaking point. Thankfully the appointment was early, so I could go home and work from sofa for the rest of the day!  Gavin came and met me and mum at the hospital, as he was working.

As the babies were shown on the screen I could see my mums eyes well up with glee. Once again everything was perfect.... another week closer! By this stage I could tell that the consultant seemed genuinely shocked by how well they were doing. All the sickness, pain and sleepless nights must be doing something right!

That evening we had to attend our first Antenatal class. I was reluctant to go, as by the evenings I was so swollen and my back hurt so much, but Gavin convinced me it would be good to get more information. We went along and I felt so uncomfortable, plus we hadn't had dinner due to timings. Starving, Swollen, Achy pregnant woman is a lethal mix! Typically the midwife kept saying "oh I don't know, I'll have to find out!" No-one ever knows anything about identical twins!

After the 2 hours were up we headed for a well deserved MCDONALDS!

Our 4D Scan

We got a Groupon deal to have a 4D scan done at Window to the Womb in Watford.  I was desperate to share the experience with my family. I took along my mum, dad, sister, sister-in-law, and of course my husband Gavin. We had both been craving the warmth, and enjoyment we had at our 12 week scan.  Although it's amazing to see your babies fortnightly, the full on medical side of things can be overbearing.

The experience is wonderful. 💙Your family squeeze onto a sofa, and get to see the scan be displayed large on the wall.  They were pickles for getting into the right position, but you could actually see their features. As you can see from the photos below, we've got a couple of posers on our hands!

I'd highly recommend it, and I'd definitely do it again for future babies *cough* ...joking hubby!😝
