Reality Strikes!

I have really been trying to get myself lost in books recently. I just want a book that totally takes my mind off of dwelling on whatever I am currently dealing with. Don't you ever feel like that?

I have been feeling pretty good with regard to being pregnant so last week was sort of a blow. Because I am having twins and even more so because they are identical twins, my pregnancy is considered high risk and I go to the doctor a lot; a lot as in every two weeks to a specialist on top of my regular OB appointments. Being a natural worrier, I appreciate that I am being watched so closely. I like that I get to see my girls every two weeks. Last week, my husband and I went to yet another specialist appointment. The girls are fine. They continue to be ridiculously active. The downside is that my body is finally starting to strain a little bit from carrying twins.

I haven't been put on bed rest but I am only supposed to be going to work where I am supposed to sit all day and then come home and doing nothing but put my feet up. I am not good at this whole not moving thing. Nothing will make you want to jump up and be active like someone telling you that you are not supposed to be moving much at all! I go back to the specialist at the end of this week to see what's going on.

I was pretty upset last week. I am only 24 weeks along so the thought of the babies coming soon is so scary to me. I know that the doctors are being super careful with me and it does not seem like we are to the point where they are super, super concerned; we're still at the watchful stage.

I am trying to take it easy and to keep my mind off of worrying, a daunting task for someone whose default often seems to be worry.

On the upside, we went to the Norfolk, VA area this past weekend to celebrate the birthdays of my little cousins. I was super fun at the party as I was relegated to the couch where I could kick my feet up and simply watch the party. It was so much fun to see them!

As an added bonus, we have a friend that my husband knows from college that does photography in that area. She is fantastic. Check more of her work out here on her Facebook page! I love her work and was very excited that she could take some maternity photos for us!

Here is one of our sneak peeks!:

I love this picture so much!


  1. I love your maternity picture! I do understand needing books to escape. I am the same way. I am glad you are being watched so closely. I hope you and the twins are doing well.

  2. Aw, what a gorgeous picture of you two! I'm sure it's hard not to worry -- heck, I worry and I'm only carrying one. But, as you mentioned, you are being watched closely -- and all you can do is the best you can do for your girls. Sounds like you're taking it nice and easy, and I'm sending good vibes your way!

  3. You look great! I'm sorry that you are being forced to rest. Take care of yourself and those little babies!

  4. You look beautiful and glowing! I will be praying and sending positive vibes your way!

  5. You're looking beautiful! It's hard, but just hang in there. Those babies will be here soon enough and you'll be wondering why you didn't sit and do nothing while you had the chance! ;)
