About Me

Nashville, TN, United States
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.

27 weeks

How far along: 27 weeks

Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs 

Symptoms: Unbelievable back pain and sciatic nerve pain

Stretch Marks: Oh yes…..no new ones seemed to have sprung up in the past few weeks, but there are plenty there.

Sleep: I can’t get enough of it.  Sleeping is getting  a little more difficult because moving from one side to the other is becoming difficult…as is breathing. 

Best Moment Last Week: Finding out I passed my GTT and touring the maternity center where we will have our babies. I also celebrated my 26th birthday at 26 weeks and 6 days pregnant: )

Movement: Lots and lots.  I could lay down all day and watch my belly move.  Baby B is definitely the more active of the two.  It is kind of funny how they are developing their very own unique personalities already.

Food Cravings: Watermelon…this hasn’t changed over the past few weeks.  I think I could sit down and eat a whole water melon.

What I Miss: The ability to walk normal and at a normal pace. I also really miss being able to breathe and not get winded doing simple tasks like putting my shoes on.

What am I looking forward to:  There is lots I am looking forward to…..our breast feeding class next week and the arrival of my family from Florida for our baby shower!  I also have an u/s scheduled that weekend so I am looking forward to getting to bring my family to that! 

Milestones: The nursery is now fully furnished!

How is Daddy? Amazing.  He goes up and above to help me feel better when my back and body are killing me.  He’s been my rock and source of strength for this pregnancy and I couldn’t do it without him! He still giggles when the babies kick him while he touches my belly.  It’s amazing to watch him bond with babies he hasn’t met yet.

And for the 27 pictures.  (Warning-my belly is stretched to shit…so if stretch marks gross you out, look away now!!! You've been warned)
