    Pregnant with Twins – Week 30

    We are 3/4 of the way there! But since I am having a scheduled c-section, we only have 6 or 7 weeks left before the babies are here! It feels like it is coming up so soon. Babies’ size: cucumbers Symptoms: Pretty much the same as last week – Shortness of breath, fatigue, trouble sleeping, swollen feet and ankles, back pain, acid reflux. I’ve also started having Braxton-Hicks contractions and more rapid heart rate, which the doctors don’t seem to be too concerned about.   Appetite: No changes. Still finding it hard to eat regular meals because I get so uncomfortable afterwards, but we don’t really have a lot of snacks…

One of the worst new symptoms is shortness of breath. I am having trouble walking the pups on a daily basis and even standing for an extended period of time.  I’ve been able to combat…

    Twins Baby Shower

    It was baby shower day this past Saturday! Or should I say BABIES shower? The shower was so adorable and fun. I can’t thank Liza, Amanda and Rebecca enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness in putting this together! I hope all of our guests enjoyed themselves.   As you know from my previous posts, the twins’ nursery is going to have a safari/jungle theme, and our hostesses incorporated that theme into the baby shower decor. Everything was so cute and lovingly handmade! We decided to have a co-ed baby shower, and one of our hostesses made these buttons for us and all of the family members as well. Many of our…
