I'm only 5'4" and I was 135 pre-pregnancy (which is about 10-15lbs above where I normally stay). My babies combined didn't even weigh 8lbs. But remember you've got 2 sacs with 2 placentas and at this point. I remember reading somewhere how much fluid a twin mom has toward the end but now I can't remember. It's a ridiculous amount though. And I was swollen EVERYWHERE. My legs were even gigantic and my feet grew a couple of sizes.

Yeah my DH walked about 7-8 months old. (My MIL can't seem to remember. The other day she tried to tell me he was 6 months old when he walked :roll:) My neice walked at 10 months and my nephew was 8 months old. I'm perfectly happy with my girls' level of mobility right now. They just sit and play for the most part. My nephew has been non-stop since he was 8 months old and she never had this sit and play stage with him. She's totally jealous of me!

That's another crazy thing too...I was starting to swell up like a marshmallow (mostly just in legs/feet/ankles and hands at night) and then lately the swelling has pretty much disappeared! I guess because I sit with my feet elevated about 90% of the time, though I have been pretty much doing this for a while, just been better with it lately.. It kind of shocks me because I expected it to get worse, not better.

Sit and play sounds super fun! I really can't wait to find out what kind of personalities my boys have..
