Ooops. Not talking about the ladies here. ^_-
As a male counterpart, have you ever gain weight during your wife’s pregnancy? If you have, join the club, not a very good club actually.
Back when Jayden was born, I recall that I probably had a couple of kg of weight gain. This time around, with twin pregnancy, I gain more weight!!! Probably 6-7kg till date. I have no less than 10 different people coming up to me recently and tell me that I have grown horizontally. A fact that I cannot deny.
Strange to you? Not me.
Hazel has little or no cravings at all, which is a blessing for me. But also, on the flip side, there was quite some time that her appetite was not too good and when I bought excess food, I had to down them all in for trying not to waste too much food.
I also have another theory. Pregnant women being pregnant require more food in order to feed the baby inside, 2 babies in Hazel’s case. But that is SO WRONG. Hazel’s appetite has noticeably decreased as she progresses into the third trimester. And this is her theory. As the babies grow, her stomach gets compressed by the ever growing babies need for space and so her appetite is not as good. Hmmm? True meh?
Regardless, we are blessed that both of the babies are doing fine right now, they could probably gain more weight if I could have it my way. However, as my gynea mentioned, twins are typically smaller in size as compared to a single birth. Imagine 2 normal single birth of 3kg inside that tummy. Scratch that. I don’t want to imagine.
In fact, right now, I am starting to panic as it is not long before the twins is out. We have about 7 weeks or so to complete the preparations and we still have lots to do.
And oh, I certainly need to get restarted in getting fitter and losing weight. I am so not unhealthy and getting to the obese BMI. Ewww.
