Show & Tell: Benchmark 2, Baby Belly, and Baby Clothes



Add ImageIt's here! Today is week 28, and benchmark #2 for pregnancy. I made it, and plan to keep going. I've told the boys they can come in October, now we'll see if they listen.

As for my belly... Well I've outgrown my comparison shirt, but I put it on to show you.



And I promise there are stretchmarks on the belly, they just don't show up well in photos. In person, you can see them. I'm not one of those pregnant ladies with perfect skin, I wish I were, but I'm not.

And for the wrestlers in my growing belly, I received these items this month.

Preemie Baby clothes

Now just pray with me that the boys will fit some preemie clothes. Kaia and Mo were both 8+ pounds, and I'm worried about having 2 boys that weigh more than 6 pounds each. That would be 12 pounds of baby in my belly!

Last my aunt and uncle brought by the boys' first Halloween costume. Too cute!



Thanks for stopping by! Please visit Kelli's for more Show & Tell!

You look beautiful! And for a gal having twins ~ I don't think you are that big! My babies were almost 10lbs. when they were born and my tummy looked like yours at three months along! ;~} I have a ton of stretch marks too!
The baby clothes are so precious! And I love the Halloween "costumes"!
Congratulations on benchmark #2!!
Blessings!

You look great! Isn't it fun to get the first gifts?

Someone gave me a few preemie clothes and they never fit my nine pounder. In fact, the newborn size clothes only fit for about a week.

How exciting. Thank you for the pictures. I can't imagine having two, you will be busy. I had a perfect belly when I was pregnant 30 years ago. Not one stretch mark but had an emergency c-section so there went my perfect belly. It was from the belly button down!

Hi there! I saw your comment on Be it Ever So Humble's blog, and had to pop over.
Congrats on the 28 week mark, that's awesome. We welcomed twin boys into our family two years ago. We thought we were done as well, after having two beautiful girls. But we're so happy with our boys too. They're a delight!

Love the baby clothes you posted pics of--adorable. Good luck!!!

Congrats on hitting the 28 week point! I had my girls at 27 weeks in 1993. They are truly miracles and are doing fantastic.

Your belly also looks fantastic.
