I’m 18 weeks pregnant with twins — almost at the halfway mark in my twin pregnancy.
When I first did that pregnancy test, all those weeks ago, it felt like we’d never get past the first trimester. And here we are, almost ready for the 20 week scan.
This is the most exciting time of mine and Richard’s lives… thrilling —a bit like a rollercoaster— so many ups and downs.
I went to Pilates again this week. It’s getting more and more difficult to do some of the manoeuvres; I can’t do the roll-downs very well these days as, happily, my belly is getting in the way! I never thought I’d be so excited to have put on a stone in weight!!
It’s not that surprising though — I am ravenous most of the time and not for anything in particular either! I am as happy with savoury, as I am sweet food… just any food really!!

Baby It’s Cold Outside
At least I have an inbuilt winter-coat to keep me warm; a bit like a wild animal (please — no whale references at this point).
It’s chilly outside; the weather has really turned now.
The heating is on twice a day and the AGA is back on, full time. I was ecstatic the day it was switched back on. It’s odd how fond you can become of an inanimate lump of metal! I have missed its cosy warmth.
The house almost doesn’t feel as welcoming when it’s off. Although it’s a relief to turn it off when the summer comes! Hard to think about that though, when we’re in the throes of winter. It’s just gone half past three, as I type, and it’s getting dark already.
My little Twinkles are tucked up safe and sound, in their nest. No idea about the world outside. I hope they stay there for at least another 18 weeks!!
I’m loving writing this twin pregnancy diary — it’s going to be so nice to look at these posts in the future!
