Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

My little June Bugs @ 8 weeks

How far along? 8 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Baby's are now the size of a raspberry! Baby is growing like mad, putting on about a millimeter every day and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Though you can't feel it yet, baby is moving those little arms, legs, and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.

Weight Gain? I'm thinking 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? I get up to use the bathroom around 1:00 each morning and have such a hard time falling back to sleep. Other than that I wanna go to bed at like 8:00, I feel so exhausted after working 10hrs.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but some days are better than others.

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it.

Best moment this week? Seeing both babies still growing on schedule.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Seeing the OB this Friday.

Weekly Wisdom: After you have gaged yourself brushing your tongue don't keep going back.

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: Still weepy and snappy. Mainly with the people I work with. I didn't realize how much common sense they lacked:).

I swear my stomach isn't that big. At least not from the babies. I have been very bloated this past week...I'm not one of those girls who push their stomach out to look further along.

On a different note I turned 27 yesterday. My sister called me and asked how it felt to be a mom on my birthday. I told her I kinda don't feel like one yet. Is that weird of me to say? I mean I love them already but I don't feel like I'm a mom.

PS I look very tired in this photo. I tried to get a better one but all the others DH took came out blurry. I should inspect them before I put the camera away.


  1. I think you look GREAT, not tired. And I love your baby bump!

    Isn't it hilarious how being pregnant makes you so bitchy, suddenly? I go back and read my blog posts from when I was pregnant and just laugh because the hormones made me insane.

  2. Glad to hear things are going good...and when I first viewed your pic I thought wow she's starting to get a bump already:) Well take care of those sweet babies:)))))

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog and congrats on your twins!!! The best advice I can give you is to enjoy every minute of your pregnancy because it goes by so fast. Don't listen to people's unsolicited advice or comments. People say the stupidest things to pregnant women. Think about purchasing some sort of pregnancy pillow for later on. I bought the Snoogle pillow from Babies R Us and loved it. There are other ones out there too. Another must is really good stretch mark cream. It didn't keep me from getting some stretch marks but it did help a lot and it felt really good to rub it on. Your skin will start to really stretch and when it does it becomes itchy. I used the Mama Mio Tummy Butter Stretch Mark Cream (or something like that). You can purchase it from their website. I'll let you know if I think of anything else. Enjoy and congrats again!

  4. I definitely had alot of bloating the first couple of weeks from just being pregnant, but also have all the fertility meds. I feel like my tummy went down a little before it actually started poouching out for real. Haha You look great though, not tired at all!
