I Am Not SuperMom

I’ve been called supermom a lot. I’m not sure why, but I guess people just have that image of me because of my business. I am no supermom. I actually very practical about what I can and cannot do. I am not one of those people that thinks I can clean house, cooks all the...

Hubby Takes Over

Ever since that first appointment where we found out we were having twins, my hubby has been to nearly every single doctors appointment. He’s had to bathe our 3 year old every night since he last traveled at the end of September. He has also been taking and picking up our son from school almost...

Pregnancy and Back Pain

Carrying multiples can do a number on your lower back. I had lower back pain from the start. I’ve heard that twins will do that to you! I knew early on that I was going to need a support belt. I met the creator of this adjustable pregnancy belt called Hot Mom Ease a few...

My Greatest Fear

I feel great about my twin pregnancy. Although I know that things can go wrong and get complicated, that’s not what I’m afraid of…at least right now. I guess I feel like the twins are safe in mommies belly. My biggest fear really is leaving my son overnight. We never been apart overnight before. When...

My Cure Was Pregnancy

I consider myself a breastfeeding advocate and In order to explore that further, I decided to look into certifications. I also want to change the way we as working women think about breastfeeding. I found a wonderful program through CAPPA. I took the course in Houston and now focusing on all of my papers and...

The 4D Ultrasound

We did the whole 4D ultrasound thing with the twins. I wanted to do it mainly because I’d done it with Preston. I wanted all of my children to have the DVD to watch when they are older some day. I think they’d get a kick out of it. I forgot about special doing it...

The Scare

At 31 weeks I was offered Betamethasone as a precaution. I had no pre-term labor symptoms. My husband and I said we’d think about it. We pretty much research everything first. I almost died from some acne meds a doctor prescribed to me in 2003. I spent Christmas Eve in Wilmington hospital in Delaware and...

Just Because You’re Miserable…

One thing that I hate about being pregnant especially with twins is the negativity around the 3rd trimester. People always ask me about my due date and when I say December 30th, they say things like “Hopefully you won’t have to wait that long” or “You must be miserable” or “I’m glad it’s not me.”...

Two versus One

This pregnancy is definitely different this time around. With my first, I worked out at least 5 days a week until one week before my due date. I did spinning, Pilates reformer, prenatal yoga, strength training, even squats! Expecting twins has been completely different. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, carrying...

Preston’s First Lesson

Preston is currently enrolled in a lot of after school activities. I didn’t realize it until I started looked at what his schedule should be next semester. He currently takes Arabic, weebotics, gymnastics, and swimming. Recently, I’ve added on some additional ones. He likes all of the activities, but sometimes I wonder if I’m doing...

Nausea and Morning Sickness

I experienced nausea with my singleton pregnancy, but it was fairly mild. The nausea with twins is a whole different ball game. It’s unbelievable how sensitive to smells I’d become. It would have been great if my newly found talent could have been used to do some good in the world like catching criminals or...

It’s a Global World

Working in a global environment is challenging. Depending on where you are located, it can be difficult to manage. The hours can be strange and it is hard to find balance between work and your family. Last week was a tough week for husband and me. Wednesday, my hubby needed to be in the office...
