I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

11 hours of sleep does the body good

Yeah...you read that right...last night, I slept for 11 hours.  Surprisingly, I still didn’t get up when the alarm went off…and I could still go back to bed right now!

I am quite impressed by this feat because I don’t think I’ve ever slept 11 consecutive hours.  Ok…I am lying…they weren’t exactly consecutive.  DH woke me up at 9:30 when he got home from a business dinner to give me my PIO shot…and I ate ice cream…and then I went back to bed.

Needless to say my headache is gone.  And not really surprising…the bleeding has slowed down A LOT!  I am barely spotting today (knock on wood).

Now for the real challenge, let’s see how easy I can take it this weekend while we pack for the big move!!


  1. I am so glad the spotting/bleeding is slowing down!! What an answered prayer :) Glad you are feeling more rested! Good luck with the packing- I know it can be draining!

  2. I hate packing with the hate of a thousand fiery burning suns. Even the possibility of additional bleeding seems like a really good excuse to me for you to call in favors from anyone you know. (Of course this works better if you aren't a control freak like me.)

    As for sleep - I am so, so, jealous.

  3. So glad you got your much needed rest. And thank God that your bleeding has stopped. Ha ha... love the picture of the kitten!

  4. I'm so jealous of your sleep!!!
    Yay about the bleeding!

  5. I am also very jealous of your sleep!! I cant seem to get comfortable at night, I'm itchy, I'm hot, I'm congested... but, im pregnant. And that makes it all worth it!
    Horray for less bleeding!
    keep up the good work!

  6. YAY for SLEEP!!! Doesn't it feel SOOOO good!!! Glad to hear that the bleeding has slowed!! Rest up for the move, Mama!!! xx

  7. I am so glad the bleeding slowed and you got a nice, long sleep. That had to be good for your mental well-being as well. When can you stop your PIO? I was able to stop mine at 6 weeks because I had 3 placentas in there making their own hormones. You must be able to stop yours sooner than a singleton I'd imagine. I was secretly glad because have you ever read the PIO insert?!

    Good luck with your move! Moving is the devil. Seriously. And moving pregnant with twins -- well, you're my hero. =)

  8. Um yea, I think I was in a coma (when I wasn't hurling) until about week 10. Enjoy it. :)
