- 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.

Long overdue update...
Sorry. I've been a terrible blogger. It seems like things have been getting crazy around here.
So lets start from the baby shower. We had our BIG baby shower this past weekend. My mom, dad, and 2 sisters flew in for it. It was so good to see them. I haven't seen them since this past Christmas. It was so neat to get to see my parents at 30 weeks pregnant. Watching my family rub my belly and try to feel baby kicks is an experience I will never forget. It was amazing. The baby shower itself was fantastic. We got tons of stuff and got to spend time with great friends. Notable gifts include our double stroller from my mom and dad, the swing from my sister, the double bassinet from my other sister, and lots and lots of clothes and things from friends. Here are some pics from the whole shower weekend.

Ok, in other news, I found my self at the doctors office yesterday after having contractions every 4 minutes apart. At our last appointment we did find that I am already 80% effaced and fingertip dilated, so I have been on bed rest since then.
They did an fFN test, and we fortunately found out today it was negative. They went ahead and gave me 2 doses of the steriod shots to mature the babies lungs "just in case."
So now I am just laying around and crossing my legs tight!
