Twenty Weeks of Twinning

Welcome, welcome, welcome!
It's true: the time has come. The moment you have all been waiting for. The long awaited, much anticipated halfway point photo!

But first. A recap. Here is where you saw me last: looking a little gassy at nine weeks along. That's not gas. Those are twin bubbles of baby-ness in there.

Next we have a never before seen! shot of me at the beginning of the second trimester (akhirnya! or as you English speakers would say: finally!). It's at this point that I finally stopped barfing and started putting on some weight. Fun times were had by all.

Then, because I'm vain, I felt the need to include this picture of me all dressed up and looking fancy at, drum roll, please, Week Fifteen!!! (I am definitely imagining a crowd cheering and clapping along while I do this. Humour me.) Don't you just love the high class photographic staging for this shot?
And finally, in a great burst of charitable love, I present to you, Marian! Hugely pregnant! At what is merely the halfway point! Whoohoo! And yes, it is acceptable to laugh hysterically at the fact that I will be double this size by the time the twinadoes arrive at the end of the year. And no, I did not just shove a basketball up my shirt--this is real life, folks!
And here it is again, from another angle! Once again, yes, that is my belly button poking out there, because when you have two sentient beings taking up residence underneath your skin, there is obviously no room for unnecessary things like a well-placed innie.

That just about wraps it up for the night! Let's enjoy a brief word from our sponsors.

(The above blue maternity shirt comes courtesy of the incomparable Shirlee Daly, who should come back tomorrow for a blog mostly about her! Extra props to Shirlee, for believing in my ability to fit into a large this time around! I couldn't have done it without her.)

As for the rest of you, join us again at some point Wednesday for an Exciting Announcement that May or May Not have something to do with the ongoing and hotly debated Boys, Girls, or Combo Debate! Once again, we find that there is never a dull moment in La Casa de Frizz. And you can have a front seat view at all times if you follow along at

Thank you, and good night!
