Maternity Style Struggle | LEGOE.

I’ve always heard that it’s hard to find good maternity clothes, but you didn’t fully realize it until I needed them myself. It’s so frustrating to be dealing with a growing belly, growing out of the clothes you normally wear, and then feel like you can’t find anything up to par with your regular style ;). I’ve made it work with a combination of loose-fitting normal clothes and a handful of good maternity clothes. LEGOE.…

Fighting Stretch Marks During Pregnancy | My Plan of Attack

Preventing Stretch Marks, Even if it’s Hereditary I’ve always been afraid of stretch marks, so you can imagine the increase in my fear when I found out I was having twins ;). Both my Mom and sister have always told me how bad their stretch marks were, so if it’s true that stretch marks are hereditary I’m a goner. However, I decided that even if I’m doomed to get some stretch marks, it’s still worth trying…

It’s Two…Girls!

Yep, we are adding TWO GIRLS to this home, and we are so excited. Finding out the gender was a bit of a roller coaster for us (which you can read about here), but I have to give our 12 week ultrasound tech props because she was right from the very beginning!

I think whether your…

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…

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…
