A Clever Game of Spot-the-Difference

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me whether I was "sure there's just one in there", I could outfit the nursery. (Well, no, that's not quite true. If had maybe $50 for every time someone asked me that, on the other hand, I could do a bang-up job.) The point is, I get this question a lot, and while it doesn't offend me, it did make me curious enough about my weight gain and how I'm carrying to actually do some comparisons. Here's what I found:

me, 12 weeks pregnant

someone else, 12 weeks pregnant with twins

me, 20 weeks pregnant

someone else, 20 weeks pregnant with twins

me, 32 weeks pregnant

someone else, 32 weeks pregnant with twins

So, yeah. Is it really that hard to tell the difference?

I got the the twin thing a lot this pregnancy, and I'm textbook in the measuring, which I would always say "Nope, actually this is total textbook for size, I'm a textbook pregnancy) and they're like "oh! really?!". I think people have multiple fascination these days ;).

Funny, with Callum no one assumed it was twins and when I say I'm the say size they look at me like I'm crazy. I've even gained less weight this time ~shrug~.

I never thought you look like you have two in there. I can't believe you're not offended when people make that comment!

It never occurred to me to be offended. What's the point? I know the truth about my body more than anyone else does. Which means I might get upset when my clothes don't fit or I don't look the way I want to look, but I'm not going to get offended by someone else's comment. They's just ignorant after all.

That 20 week photo isn't someone who had twins, it's Andrea. I remember her maternity trousers.
She had a baby boy, Ben, he'll be three soon.
