According to an anon this is mine and Rachel’s theme song.
And I died laughing.
Awww, love you always Kurt Hummel-Anderson.
A Quick Look into 11 Weeks of Pregnancy…
You’re getting close to the end of the first trimester. Most of the babies’ critical development will be behind you after the next couple of weeks, and the odds of miscarriage will soon drop considerably.
Measuring from the crown of his head to their rumps, your 4-centimetre fetuses have all their parts, from tooth buds to toenails. Your babies are busy kicking and stretching; their movements are so fluid they look like water ballet. Fingers and toes have fully separated. Now the fetuses’ main task during the next six months will be to grow larger and stronger until they can survive on their own outside the womb.
A dark vertical line of pigmentation, called the linea nigra, may appear on your abdomen. Your uterus has risen above your pelvic bones and your midwife can now feel it during an external examination.
If you are having a nuchal translucency test, you may see the first images of your babies in the next few weeks.
I’ll have to add it to my list.
Like living with your best friend.
Movie nights, trying our hand at some cooking, helping each other with work…and lots and lots of singing. Absent minded singing whilst doing chores often turned into full blown duets, complete with choreography.
And naturally, we also drove each other mad.
It takes a lot to live in constant close contact with another person, but I do miss it. It’s such a different experience living alone (though I do have Lupe!).
Maybe I’ll consider getting a flatshare…
Haha, I’m sure Kurt will find this amusing.
Darling, Kurt is my bestfriend who happens to be gay, not my boyfriend. Kurt has his soul mate, and I still have high hopes for my prince charming. My time will come.
To be completely honest…yes.
I’m sure it’ll be pressure enough on my small frame to carry the little darlings to full term! And unfortunately, my Dads are not much help in that area. But luckily, I have a few months yet to come to terms with the, erm… birth itself.
I know it will be fine. Everything always is.
10 Weeks Pregnant with the Hummel-Anderson Twins…
"The fetus is only about three centimetres long from crown to rump and weighs less than four grams. Even so, it’s busily swallowing and kicking. Each day more minute details start to appear, such as fingernails and peach-fuzzy hair.
The vital organs — the liver, kidneys, intestines, brain, and lungs — are fully formed and functional, while the head is almost half the length of the entire body. The forehead temporarily bulges and sits high on the head, but later will change into a more human-like feature.
If you could take a look at your baby this week, you’d be able to see the clear outline of his spine. Spinal nerves stretch out from the spinal cord.
Your uterus is now the size of a grapefruit. With the help of a doppler, a hand-held soundwave stethoscope, you can hear the fetus’s rapid heartbeat — one expectant mother likened it to the sound of tiny horses galloping.”
I will not lie.
Sometimes the urge to fill my blog entirely with pictures of my little man is just too much.
Especially when I have just bought him a new toy, and he is being so damn adorable with it.
Oh, the simple joys of life.
Oh dear, aren’t I just a joy to be around these days? Darling, I do hope I thanked you properly for all that… For, erm, assaulting your toilet and stealing your bed. Thankyou and sorry
It’s more than fine, Rachel. Don’t even worry about it. Besides, it was nice to have someone there while Blaine was in London, extra nice since that someone was you. :)
Oh Kurt, you are too good to me. And anytime, darling, it’s always great to have a nice night in.
Remind me to repay you in food-form. Can’t have my boys forgetting to eat, being as busy as you both are!
Because while the joys of eating food are rather diminished as of late, I still find cooking itself rather therapeutic. And big city this may be, but you two really are the only people willing to accept my homemade-super-healthy-vegan cooking… ;)
The best is by far and away the simple thought that I am creating and nurturing two tiny little humans, and when they are big, strong and independent enough, they will be born into the wide world and bring unspeakable happiness and joy to two people who deserve nothing less.
The worst… well, that would have to be a tie between being unable to keep basically any food down, and being woken up at ridiculous hours of the night from vivid dreams or a bursting bladder (regardless of how recently I had already been to the bathroom…). I’m told this will all get better.
It has just been… a really really big week in the life of one double-pregnant Rachel Berry, and all I need right now is for everything to just slow the hell down.
Is it possible for everything to move so fast that you get left behind in your own life?
Just wanted to let my darling friends and family know that I am still alive, my two quickly growing bubs are happy and healthy, and sorry for my absence!
I’m afraid life just keeps catching up to me.
