Put A Bow On It

October 15, 2015


I am beyond tired from not getting enough sleep at night these days but I am seriously crushing on this top! I have another doctor's appointment today at 3pm so I'll update everyone tomorrow.

A Haircut Epiphany

October 14, 2015


I got three inches cut off my hair and while that may not seem like a big deal...I can tell I am already putting my babies first before myself and they aren't even here yet.

 Let me backtrack...

For years I have gone to Salon Visage here in Knoxville and got my hair cut and highlighted and paid a pretty penny doing it. I love it there and the staff and me time but it is expensive. I have not gotten my hair cut or highlighted since March when I found out I was pregnant and my hair was the longest it's ever been thanks to the prenatal vitamins and healthier lifestyle. I walked into Ulta the other day and for a $10 donation they were cutting hair for Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  I realized I could buy diapers or baby clothes or something special for my babies with the $100 plus dollars that I give Salon Visage normally every couple of months and I sat down and got the cheapest haircut I have ever had in my life. 

It may not be that important to most people but I can tell I am changing and putting my twins first before myself and I pray that is a step in the right direction that will make me a good mother.

It's Fall Y'all

October 13, 2015


I'm a little late but my house is finally decorated for the fall season, both inside and out. I found this monogrammed polka dot pumpkin at Kirkland's and fell in love (It's a little girly but my husband doesn't seem to mind.)

I have embraced everything seasonal so far starting with the Pumpkin Spiced Latte (obvi), and the faux fur vests, and most importantly what to be thankful for a whole month before Thanksgiving.  My family is so blessed this season especially because of the arrival of the babies...the greatest blessing of all.

Thirty Two Weeks Pregnant

October 12, 2015


Well, I had my weekly ultrasound visit on Friday and it kind of sucked. I am officially on pelvic rest and no longer allowed to exercise and do any sort of heavy lifting and was told from here on out to sit more than I stand. The good news is I am not on full blown bed rest and can still it weird that I count my job as a plus?

My New Favorite Sweatshirt

October 7, 2015


The material of this top is not really sweatshirt material, but it is oversized and long and just what this mommy-to-be needed today to feel comfortable.  It does have faux leather trim on it so I am styling but feeling like I am in a pajama top. #winning

I swear when I put these maternity jeans on this morning they felt tight.  Can you get to large for your maternity that even a thing?  My bump is getting rather out of control but I really, really don't want to buy more maternity clothes for just a couple weeks worth of wear.  Ugh...

Red Hot

October 6, 2015

Nothing like a little red dress to make a pregnant lady feel special.  

As of last Friday, I am measuring (fundal height wise) 38 weeks pregnant even though I am just 31 weeks and have over 7 pounds of combined baby weight inside of me.  So basically if I was having a singleton pregnancy I would be very close to full term and possibly already delivered my baby BUT I have to keep on going...oh, the joys of multiples.  

Not much longer now until I get to meet the new little loves of my life.

Bun(s) In The Oven

October 5, 2015


I got compliments everywhere I went wearing this shirt...I just need to attach a S on the end of "buns" and it would be perfect. I found it at Burlington Coat Factory for $12.99 a couple weeks ago proving you don't have to spend a ton on maternity clothes.

Onto the good stuff- my doctor's visit update from this past Friday.
Twin A has! He has even more now than he did at his last ultrasound and it is so funny to see it sticking out of his perfect little head on camera. His heartbeat was 138 which is average and in range for 31 weeks pregnant. He weighs 3 pounds, 4 ounces and is the smaller of the two (I keep calling him my little pip squeak). The doctor wants to continue monitoring his growth but he has gained 10 ounces in eleven days which was very good! He is currently in the 34 percentile in weight.

Twin B is lounging right on his brother in my stomach so we still cannot tell if he has hair or not since they are all squished up together. His little heartbeat is 157 and again in perfect range. This little guy is weighing in at 3 pounds, 13 ounces and has gained 7 ounces in the past eleven days. He is in the 57 percentile in weight.

  Both twins are practicing breathing in the womb and are actively kicking and wiggling around. I am going weekly from here on out until I deliver and will continue to do updates after my appointments for anyone that is interested. Not much longer now until the Jackson twins make their debut!
