What else can you say when you read this story:
The second largest twins born this century!!

I remember when I was pregnant with my twins thinking my stomach couldn't possibly get any bigger - 10lbs of baby is a lot for a 5'2" frame, but I cannot imagine how big this lady's tummy must have been with over 23lbs of baby in there -wow, wow, WOW - imagine the stretch marks!!!!

Here is a very unflattering picture of me just a couple of days before I was put into hospital at 33 wks with the boys:
(they were born at 34 wks)

Quite tiny in comparison - I imagine!!

I can't imagine - my boys were just over 12 lbs combined and I thought there was no way I could get any bigger.

You look really cute in that pic by the way! :)

Oh my gosh-23 lbs! I can't even stand to think about this. Can you imagine what that felt like, to have 23 lbs of baby sitting on your bladder? I mean, I was in the bathroom ALL THE TIME with my kids, and they each only weighed around 7 1/2 lbs!

I think your pregnant tummy is very cute...but you do NOT look happy in this picture. With good reason, I'm guessing :)

You're a great bloggy friend, you know that??

I love it that you read my blog consistently and leave me comments all the time!

It's the makings of a beautiful friendship!

I'm going to read that link you have up.

Hi Renata;

How fun to learn more details about you. You are so cute in this picture, though I am sure you felt like a house, right?

23 pounds is breathtaking in twins. But what an awesome way to have your breath taken away.

my goodness that is just so wrong on so many levels. surely the human body is not meant to stretch that far :P Makes my little not quite 8 pounders seem like preemies!

I think you look precious! (There's a very good reason why there are minimal photos of me late in twin pregnancy...and heckfire, I only had 12-ish pounds of baby in me!)

Will be including you on the blog roll, and on my personal one, too!

Goodness Gracious - she gave birth to toddlers!!! It still makes me feel uncomfortable when I see someone who is close to the 40 week mark, it reminds me of how awful I felt towards the end.
You certainly don't look comfortable in the pic. Miss you all.
