Fwiw, a good friend of mine went through this with her dd - there were something like 18 cysts and she had a 2 vessel cord to boot. The cysts were gone by birth and she was a very healthy weight too.

Hey mamas! I'm 22 weeks along with twins and am surprised at how quickly my belly has grown, too. I already have a hard time putting my socks and shoes on. Seriously? lol

Ok, I just took a couple of quick iPhotos for you guys.

I finally took a picture!

Here I am at 16.5 weeks
(I'm about 17.5 now)

It's not a very good pic, sorry. I am feeling icky and not in the mood to show my whole body.

A few choice selections from along my journey:

belly with twins at 20 weeks

30 week belly from the side

30 weeks front view

Pathetic attempt at fitting into bathing suit at 38 weeks 6 days (but what a relief the water was!)

the "painted" pic, at 39 weeks

39 weeks along

eta: Wow, I'm glad I have those shots of the bare belly near the end. Looking at it now I really can visualize the two little humans interlocked inside there. One of mine was just over 7 lbs, the other was a little under 8 lbs.
Your belly looks amazingly similar to mine. I point straight out just like that and everyone is so amazed by how pointy my belly is. I was wondering how in the world I could get any pointer, but looking at your 39 week pics I now see. Wow, is all I can say. Your belly is beautiful, BTW.
