Dressing Like You’re Pregnant, or Not Dressing Appropriately for Being Pregnant?

If the way that I dress hasn’t changed much now that I’m showing, does that mean I’ve always dressed like I’m pregnant, or that now I’m not dressing accordingly? I’m kind of afraid it’s the first one ;). But I’ll just chalk it up to the fact that I love being comfortable! And I love this button down thing – it can be a dress or worn as a duster/kimono.

Getting Through the First Trimester | Morning Sickness and More…

Alright, so I officially hit 16 weeks a couple days ago. And I decided I should post about my first trimester before I forget how terrible it felt ;). The main reason I want to post about it is to tell you that YES it can be awful, but YES it will get better (for most people!)  The First Trimester Fog The first trimester is just a weird place to be. I think whether your…

Pregnancy Book List | What to read when you get those double lines ;)

When we first found out we were pregnant we were about to leave on a trip, so Blake made a stop at Barnes and Noble to pick us up some reading material.  He grabbed the usual What To Expect When You’re Expecting, and also found one called Dude, You’re Gonna Be A Dad. He said when he went to check out the lady ringing him up got so excited that it kind of surprised him,…

Pregnancy Workouts (or lack of!) + Favorite Workout Attire

I have to admit something – working out during pregnancy for me has so far been kiiiind of a joke.  Because first of all, can we just talk about how much the first trimester sucks?! More on that later, but it’s so frustrating because you feel pressure to establish a really good workout routine in the beginning of your pregnancy, but you also feel (unless you’re one of those rare lucky ones) like you literally can’t…

The Bump in Action + The Gender Roller Coaster

Guys – hi! Can I just say that pregnancy is a ROLLER COASTER?! And it just so happens that for us, finding out the gender has been no different. Since our pregnancy is considered high risk (just because of the fact that it’s twins), we get more ultrasounds than most would. Side note – if anyone has thoughts/research regarding the number of ultrasounds you should/shouldn’t get, I’d love to hear it! Right now, this is our…

15 Weeks | Pre-Maternity Clothing Tricks

Guys – these babies are getting bigger!  I’m 15 weeks, which means they are the size of either a navel orange, an apple, or a pear, depending on what pregnancy app I look at ;).  Blake and I die over the fruit comparisons every week, especially when they give you fruit that varies in size or is shaped super weird!  And the babies aren’t the only ones getting bigger – I am, too. I’m to the…

Twin Pregnancy Questions (and Answers!)

As soon as people find out I’m having twins, they inevitably have the same questions. Coming from close friends it’s fine, but some of them feel weird when coming from strangers. I’m starting to realize that these are questions every twin mom and/or twin gets, and I better get used to answering them because they won’t stop after the twins are born! Apparently a double stroller is a magnet for questions like these. So to…

We’re Having TWINS! | How we found out…

Guys, we are having TWINS. It’s happening.  We found out about 6 weeks ago, but it’s taken some time (and a couple of ultrasounds) for me to REALLY believe it.  We got pregnant right away, but I was worried leading up to my first ultrasound because of a previous miscarriage (more on that another day). I was trying to mentally prepare myself for the worst, and felt so many nerves going into that first ultrasound.…
