MoM Pregnancy with Multiples

Linking up with Jennifer and MoM this week and this topic is Pregnancy with Multiples!

Last picture is of the morning the twins were born 36w4days

My multiple pregnancy was really, very uneventful. I was pretty sick the first 12 weeks, but still managed. After that there was really no issues. I never had preterm labor or anything, in fact, I never even saw a specialist or special U/S tech.
We found out it was two around the 7 week mark because I freaked when I spotted (spotting last time had been the start of my miscarriage) We were totally surprised and excited when we heard her say, "I see two babies and two heartbeats!" We spent the rest of that afternoon visiting our family to share the good news!

I definitely started showing earlier than with Jack, but I love a pregnant belly so I was happy. I felt them very very early, like around 12 weeks I was feeling the "bubble tapping" and I knew exactly what it was.
We found out it was two boys at 20 weeks and began registering for extra things and planning out the next few months of showers and life. We always tried to anticipate that there might be hospitalizations, preterm stuff and all the "fun" stuff that can come with a twin pregnancy, but it never came.

I began dilated just due to the weight of the pregnancy around the 33 week mark, but it was slow and wasn't doing anything. The boys were breech and transverse, so we knew it'd for sure be a c-section ( I was totally bummed about this) I would have days with some pretty consistent contractions but no dilation, so that was good. I started having the normal NST testing and all was looking good, my OB doesn't let his patients go past 37 weeks with twins, we scheduled a c-section for 36w4d and for the week before I was contracting a lot, and put myself on moderate bedrest. He never told me I was on bedrest, just always said to take it very easy. The NST's started to look a little fuzzy and the night before I went in for my c-section I was contracting like crazy. I am pretty positive that I would have had them in the next day or two regardless.

C-section was uneventful, but I am not gonna lie...I hated it. Every single part of it. I was so out of it after and the pain was intense from the surgery and I felt so drugged for days after the boys arrived. They were perfect and needed no NICU at the time. That all changed on the day we were to go home and you can read that here. 

Here is my blog post announcing the twins
Here is their full birth story


I was dilated to a 3/4 when I went for the c-section, gained 24lbs and was measuring 40 weeks when I went in to deliver.

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
