Checking pillow cases and missing babies????

Gary and I are losing our minds. I am guessing its natural when you bring 2 precious things into this world to be constantly worried about them but this is just insane!! The other day Gary was taking a nap on the couch and jumped up clenching his pillow with a confussed dazed look on his face. I asked him what was wrong and he started patting down the pillow case with the same stunned look, after patting it down he stuck his hands in it and started feeling all around?? I was intrigued at what the hell he was doing and he finally seemed to come around and looked at me like I was insane for looking at him like he was insane and then looked at the pillow and finally told me he thought the baby was in the pillow case and that he swore it had a heartbeat? Obviously I was laughing hysterically at him and we chalked it up to sleep deprevation. But for 2 days I busted his ass about it and told everyone I could about it.

Well a few nights later I woke up to what looked like Gary tearing the blankets off the bed and patting it down like he was looking for something......I jumped up and screamed "Gary!!!!!" He looked at me like I was a lunatic for screaming on the top of my lungs with the babies sleeping just feet away. Then I yelled "where are the babies??" and he said "in their bassinettes, stop yelling, your going to wake them up". I then realized at that point I thought he was pulling the blankets off because he fell asleep with one of the girls and lost them in the blankets?? In reality he got up at 4 in the morning to let the dogs out and Tess came back after playing in the snow and jumped on his side of the bed, Gary came in and she wouldn't get out of the bed so he picked her up and put her in her bed and started trying to wipe the wet off his side of the sheets! Lol. He couldn't stop laughing after I told him what I thought was happening. Just goes to show you what lack of sleep and worrying about babies non stop will do to you! It makes you looney!!!

My body 2 weeks post partum

So when I found out I was pregnant with twins the first thing I thought about driving out of that office was Oh my goodness my poor poor body! LOL! Pathetic right? When I found out I was pregnant with the girls I weighed in at 153lbs. When I gave birth to the girls I weighed in at 202lbs. Not a horrible weight gain when I think about what it could have been but too much for my liking! It has been strange to watch my body transform after the babies got here. I am only 2 weeks PP and have managed to lose 41 pounds already. I am starting to feel normal again! I only have 8 more pounds to go before I am back at my starting weight, which is still on the high side for me, I prefer the 140's but I gained about 10lbs from IVF.

So, I always scoured the internet for pics of twin bellies after birth so I figured I would post mine in case anyone was wondering.........

I am hoping to lose the rest of the "pooch" after my doc gives me the clear to start working out ( I have some work out DVD's calling my name as I type) and hopefully the stretch marks will start to fade over time. But you know, even if they dont I honestly dont care. I grew two beautiful little girls in that belly and am darn proud of it!

Harley the umbilical stump eating dog........

So today Michelle came over to visit and help with the babies for a bit. Just before the end of her visit she was holding Gillian and Gillian started farting and pooping up a storm. It was one of those ones that you knew was a big one! Now Michelle has 2 kids and is pregnant now with her 3rd so she is used to these kind of things but me.....well, I've only been a "MOM" for 8 days. She got her pants off and nothing could have prepared me for the blowout of a poopy diaper that was awaiting us! It was EVERYWHERE!!! I of course immediatly started gagging, why, when I have changed plenty of poopy diapers in my 8 days as a mom did this one get to me is beyond me but it was everywhere! So off to the sink I go gagging leaving Michelle to deal with the mess of a diaper! I came back and just as I came back Michelle had the mess cleaned up and was about to put a fresh diaper on her when Gillian decided to pee on Michelles leg. Poor girl. Comes over for a nice chat and some baby time and goes home covered in my babies poop and pee! To top off the afternoon sometime in the "poop fiasco" as I have dubbed it Gillian lost her umbilical stump! Her first huge blow out and losing her stump, what a freaking milestone of day! We had the stump on our coffee table and were saying our goodbyes when my lab walked by and scooped the stump up off the table and tried to eat it! Michelle and I screamed! Gary came running in and had to pry Harley's jaw open and fish it out of his mouth before he swallowed it! I didn't even want to keep it but I certainly didn't want my dog eating it either! But now that there is a story behind it, well It may end up in her baby book after all.

Girls first bath!

So since Finley lost her umbilical stump yesterday we decided we would give her a bath today before bed. Sometimes I wish Gary and I had taken a newborn care class so we had a clue sometimes! So after much debate on whether or not the water was too hot or cold (I wish we had one of those duckies that you stick in the water that tells you if its the right temp or not)we got up the nerve to put her in. And it was that moment that I had pictured being all giggles and smiles turned into nothing but cries. Oh well, guess everything can't be as imagined right? So we gave her the bath really quick and that was that. Here is a picture of her afterwards in her cute pooh bear towel thing that her Auntie Cheryl got her (maybe in 3 months when she puts on some weight she wont be swimming in it)

Finley's First Bath:

The we decided to just give Gillian and sponge bath:

First doctors appointment and little sleep

So last night everything was going well until about 2:30 am and then the fun began. Gillian decided she wanted to fuss all night long for no apparent reasson except to be held. I finally ended up just taking her into the bed with me and she fell right to sleep and didn't make another noise until morning. Finley on the other hand slept the whole night.

So after the fun night we had a doctors appointment at 8:15am. All went well. The dcotor was nice and the girls have gained since they were in the hospital so the doctor was happy about that!

Tomorrow I have to go for a blood pressure check at my OB's office so we will be taking the girls out to go visit the doc and the girls at the office!

Here are some more pics of the cutie pies!

Birth Story

Friday morning Gary and I headed to the hospital to get ourselves checked in and everything started for the section. I was anxious as all hell about the catheter (they insisted on doing it before my spinal) and as soon as I got there they did my IV and the cath. And I have to say....honestly, the cath was nothing! Barely felt a thing and the following day I was so in love with not having to get up to use the bathroom since I was in so much pain that I was contemplating keeping it in for a extra day! Lol. So honestly, dont worry about it!

Once that was all set we headed off to the OR and I was shaking like a leaf at the thought of my spinal. The anestesialogist was great and so sweet and very reassuring. All I felt was a slight pinch and then it was done. Honestly I have had novacaine at the dentist that was worse that that! Then they laid me down and put up the big sheet so I could't see jack diddly (thank goodness) and called Gary in. They started to do the "pinch" test to see if I was numb or not and I was still feeling some pinches here and there. We waited a few more minutes and the doctor tried againa nd I was good to go!

I have to say, I always read when people say you feel tugging and stuff during the ssection but never imagined it would be like this! It wasn't painful it was just really, really , really weird feeling! It felt like a eternity before the doctor pulled out baby A. Finally she was out and they held her over the curtain for Gary and I to see. She was so beautiful...and Big! Baby Gillian Adair came out first at 12:08pm weighting 7lbs 5oz and never cried! They took her away to get her checked out and started on getting my transverse Baby B out! Finally Finley Hope made her entrance into the world at 12:11 pm screaming her little head off weighing in at a measly 5lbs9oz! Poor little thing! Her sister must have been stealing all of her food from her! She was so tiny compared to her!

And I have to say that this is where everything went crazy and is a blur. After the pulled Finley out I started getting really dizzy and light headed. My blood pressure was dropping fast and I felt like hell. They kept giving me meds to counteract it and just kept telling me to "breath" at this point they wouldn't let Gary back in to see me because I was so borderline. Finally after they were done and they got my BP somewhat stabilized I was brought back to my room. The nurses and docs kept coming in to check on me and I guess because my uterus was so big it wasn't contracting back into place like it was supposed to and I was hemmoraging. I am not really sure what the hell happened after this, all I remember is everyone coming in and out giving me this drug and that drug and this shot and that shot trying to make it stop. I ended up being knocked back out in my room at one point because the doc was so worried and she went back in to look for blood clots that may have been making it worse. I woke up at some point after that and they were giving me a blood transfussion because I had lost so much blood. I ended up being given 4 bags of blood and thankfully at around 10:00pm I started to stabilize. I had nurses in the room non stop massaging my uterus to help it firm up and felt like hell.

Not to mention the fact that I had given birth to my two girls at 11:00 am and here is almost 12 hours later and I couldn't even tell youw what they looked like? I was so upset that I didn't feel like I had a bond with them at first, with all the drama going on how could I? Around 2 in the morning I started to feel a little better and made Gary go get them from the nursery for me. Once I saw them I was in heaven. They are so cute. Words just can't describe how you feel once you see them and it kicks in that they are yours!

I grew them! I took care of them for 9 months! And I have to say I did one hell of a job!

Neither girl needed any NICU time, both got great Apgar scores and both came home with me yesterday! They are so adorable!

So.....without any further babbling! I know you want to see some pics! So here goes!

Babies tomorrow! I'm gonna be a MOM!!

This is definatly the most surreal feeling ever! I am going to be a mom two girls! My life as I know it is going to change forever. Its crazy!

I am however freaking out about my section! I am trying not to but its so darned hard! I hate the fear of the unknown! I know after the fact I am going to say I was insane for being so freaked out but for now.......freak out!!!

So tomorrow at 7:30am I am going to get to the hospital and get preped for my section! They said the section is scheduled for 11 but could be sooner depending on how the morning goes. So, if everyone would start praying for me that would be great! Lol. I am going to be a wreck!

I'll be posting pics as soon as I am lucid enough! Can't wait to meet my baby girls!

The babies are coming!!

Well I had my OB appt this morning and guess what???? The babies are coming! I have a c-section scheduled for this Friday at 37 weeks exactly! I can't believe they are coming! So the doctor said I have a little protein in my urine and she is sending me in to be tested tomorrow again and if it is worse she will do the section tomorrow. I hope we can make it to Friday though!

Okay too much to do before they get here to sit around blogging today!!!

So close, but yet so far away........

Well, where to start? I am 36w3d today. My last NST on Friday the babies actually cooperated but my BP was a little high at 155/95. So the nurse wanted to run a toxemia screen on me. After 2 nurses trying to draw my blood and getting no where they finally called in the IV nurse who managed to get it!

Today I went in for my NST and again the babies cooperated but my BP was still elevated, so the nurse called Dr. Cluett and after she came back she told me to go home, lay on my side and not to move unless I had to use the bathroom until I went for my appt tomorrow with Cluett. She said at this rate she didn't think Cluett was going to let me go past 37 weeks. Of course this freaks me out because I am going to be 37 weeks on Friday. Now I know I keep saying I want these two out of me but to be honest with you I am scared to death of my impending c-section! I can't stop freaking out about it. I guess I just need to just keep on telling myself that its going to be fine and everything will go smoothly and at the end I am going to have two beautiful baby girls!

This reminds me of how freaked out I was before my egg retrieval! After that was done I thought it was a peice of cake so I am sure I will be fine after my section as well but its just the anxiety part of it that I can't take leading up to it!

So besides that Thanksgiving was great. We went to my brothers house and the whole family did dinner over there. It was nice not having to do anything!

Then on Saturday we went to the Tree Farm and cut down our Christmas Tree. I have to say too we got the most perfect tree! Gary decorated it too and it looks sooo beautiful! I am going to try to take pics tomorrow night.

Then yesterday was my birthday and we had the family over for Shepherds Pie and cake.

So....I kept saying all I wanted to make sure I got done before the babies got here was Thanksgiving, getting our Tree and turning the BIG 30 and it looks like all that is done so I guess the babies can come!

And to make matters better I made it to December so my girls will have a beautiful Turquois birthstone! See everything works out after all!

35w3d........Is it almost time to get these things outta me????

Well I made it to the 35 week mark! Not that I ever doubted I would, but here I am. Its also nearly 2 in the morning and I am up in agony from all the pressure the babies are putting on my belly and hips! Oh the fun! I really want my girls to make it to the 37 week mark but really....this is getting insane!!!!!

I never in a million years though being pregnant with twins was going to be so darned painful! I mean, I knew it wasn't going to be fun, but never thought it would come to this! Lol!! My belly hurts, my hips hurt, my pelvis is freaking killing me, I can't sleep, I can't lay down, I can't sit, it all hurts. I can't wait for it to go away!

Everyone I come across says something too......."WOW, you must be overdue", "You look like your ready to pop any second", "Holy Cow.....are you pregnant with twins"! Lol. I am like a freak of nature that everyone feels the need to stare at when I go out! I am also a walking freaking ad for birth control the way teenage girls have been staring at me! Lol.

The crazy thing is that as much as I want them out I want to keep them in just out of sheer fear of what comes next! I dont know what labor is like....., will I go into labor, will I end up making it 38 weeks and having a c section scheduled? Will my water break? Will the epidural hurt, will the recovery of the section be horrible? Will I know what to do with two babies once I get them home? Is this going to be way harder than I think its going to be? All these things keep running through my mind and I am trying to block them out. I know its inevitable and I am going to find out soon enough! I guess I'll let you know!

Welp, that was my pity me post! I am going to try to go lay back downa and get a couple more hours sleep....yeah right!

34w1d and a Great steak dinner!

Well, I finally got that Filet Mignon I have been craving since the beginning of my pregnancy! Gary, me, my mom and my brothers all went out to the Texas Roadhouse tonight and had a good time and even better.....good food! So, I told the babies they can officially come now because I finally got my steak!

OH Yeah and here is a picture of me today........getting so much bigger!!! Eeeks. I can't wait to see how much bigger I can possibly get!

Nearing the finish line

Wow, I can't tell you how much I wish I could stop blogging about this pregnancy and start blogging about my cute little girls! It is getting so close now. I am getting anxious! I wonder everday when my body is going to give up. I only have 10 more days until I reach my 35 week goal and then only 2 weeks after that for my 37 week goal where at that point I can totally give up and start praying they come soon! At this point while it would be nice to not be pregnant anymore I dont want my babies coming this early. I want them to be as nice and big and healthy as possible! So......24 more days until I hit 35 weeks. That will go by fast enough! Hopefully.

Working from home is going good. Definatly one of the better choices I have made! I sit around comfortably in my recliner working away. I dont have to worry about getting dressed in the morning, or all day for that matter and its great!

We have just about everything done for the babies. The only thing left to do is pack my bag, set up the bassinette in our room (we didn't want to do it too early b/c I am sure the cat will be trying to sleep in it) and I need to get some motivation to clean the house ( I am still waiting for nesting to kick in).

Welp that is my 3:00 am post of the morning. Wish I could sleep.......

Monday, November 9, 2009


UGH!!!! So, I had my 3rd NST today and I even brought a banana and granola bars with me....just in case. Well, I must have hyped the babies up so much because baby B wouldn't stay on the monitor. Every time we would get her on she would move and they just couldn't get a good reading from her. I was there from 8am-12:20pm!!! Finally they called my doctor and she just let me go. She probably felt sorry for me! Lol. So next one I scheduled for Thursday at 2:00! Maybe a different time of day will give me different results! Lol. Yeah right! So that was my day so far. Another 4+ hours at the freaking hospital!

Ooh please please let my next one go better than the past 3!

NST # 3!

Okay! It is almost 7:00am, I got up a few times last night and downed some glasses of water and am going to drink 2 more glasses before I go into my NST! Then I will bring a OJ with me and maybe a granola bar (just in case a baby decides she wants to sleep again) and hopefully they will take care of my contractions and my sleepy baby issue! I vow to not be stuck at the hosptial for the day today!!!!!

I'll keep you posted.........

Car Seats......CHECK!

Okay, I was too lazy to grab my camera to take these pics so just used my BlackBerry....hence the blurriness......but I promise to take them with a good camera tomorrow. I just washed my truck so decided to throw in a pic of it looking shiny! Lol!

It is awfuly strange to see two car seats in my truck......very strange.

My big baby girls!

I had my growth scan on Friday! Everything went great. The babies are about 5 1/2 lbs each and are measuring at 35 weeks. Thats some big babies! They are measuring in the 95th percentile and the doc said I have good, happy healthy babies in there!

They also wouldn't schedule me for another appointment with them because the doc said he didn't think I was going to make it to 37 weeks. He said usually 70% of twins are born within the 35th and 36th week. Which makes me super nervous because that is only 2-3 more weeks!

I still need to pack the babies bags and my bag.......I just have no idea what to put in either of our bags?! Lol.

Today though Gary and I are cleaning out my SUV really good and then putting the car seats in so they are ready to go! After that I will at least pack the babies bag!

Well, that is all for now,I have another NST tomorrow so I am sure I will have lots to update by then! Ugh! Hopefully not though. Pray both babies are awake during the NST and I dont have tons and tons of contractions!

Stress me out test part 2!

So I had my second NST yesterday and when I got hooked up it appeared it was going to be a good appt this time! Baby A passed in no time, unfortunatly baby B was a different story this time around and decided it was time to take a nap! So the nurse came in and told me Baby B failed her test and to make it even better she had a deceleration of her heartrate during one of my contractions. This can mean that the placenta is starting to breakdown early and couple the decel with the sudden laziness of my crazy baby bought me a trip to the ultrasound room. So after a few hours of waiting for a opening for a biophysical ultrasound and them hooking me up to a IV to pump some liquids into my stupid contracting ass, I finally got my ultrasound and they said everything looked good. Thank goodness! If the baby didn't start moving I would have ended up with a c-section yesterday! Yikes! Reality strikes again!

So seriously, I need to pack the babies bags (which appears I should definatly be packing preemie clothes) and my bag sometime soon!

On a funny side note, I really dont like calling people when things get crazy......I dont want people to get all worked up over nothing. But I called my mom.....dont ask me why I call my mom before my husband? I think it has something to do with the fact that shes a nurse and I think she can stay calm if I tell her something crazy going on with the babies! Yesterday though after I told her what was going on and then told her not to come down and I would call her after the ultrasound she decided to come anyway!

I was in my ultrasound and another tech called in "Is Erin in there.....because her mom is here". How did she even find me!!?? Lol! I could just picture her in the hospital "FIND MY DAUGHTER"! Lol. I almost died when she told me she rushed over there so fast from work that she almost rear ended a flower truck! Lol...last time she gets the call!

So I have a growth scan this morning at UConn.....pray that goes well, I can't take anymore craziness this week!

Freezer Foods.

So, I am still making food whenever I can to freeze! I am so excited that I may not have to cook for over a month after the babies get here! Here is a list so far of what I have!

3 meals of shepherds pie
5 meals of chili
3 meals of chicken stroganoff
10 twice baked potatoes
4 meals of tuna noodle casserole
4 meals of chicken pot pies
Honey mustard chicken fingers
BBQ Chicken Fingers
Beef Bean and Cheese Burritos
4 meals of Beef Stew
2 meals of Swiss Steaks (Thanks Mom and Dad)

I still have a bunch of other things I want to make though before the babies come so hopefully they dont show until I am ready for December!

Non Stress Test.......pft more like stress me out test!

Well, Well where to start with this insane day! I had my routine OB appt this morning with Dr. Cluett. All seemed well, I gained 4lbs in 2 weeks...that puts me at 38lbs total so far today. Which she didnt' seemed worry about so neither am I!

Then I had a appt at the hospital for my NST. It was supposed to take "about 20 minutes" well as soon as I got hooked up to the contraction monitor the nurse asked me if I knew I was having contractions? I told her no, I hadn't felt any and she said I was having alot of them. GREAT! Sooooo, she got me a huge container of water to start drinking. She kept coming in and checking me and finally after about a hour she said they were not slowing down and was going to call my Dr. to come down and check me......double great. So I had to wait there until the doctor came which was hours! She finally got there and checked me and I wasn't dialated at all! Yippee!

So, she said my uterus is probably just irritated from stretching so much and to call her if I start to feel them. Thank goodness! She said I can go back to work tomorrow! So I have another NST on Thursday.....yippee. And hopefully they will have slowed by then!

On a side note, I went to motherhood tonight and got a couple new shirts (Had to buy XL's this time) and some comfy yoga pants, a cardigan thingy and a pair of dress pants for work!

32 weeks!

Yippee! I made it to 32 weeks! Here is a belly pic from today! I think I need some new shirts that actually fit me!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Work.......or not to work......

So, I am going to be 32 weeks this friday! Go Me! And I am still working! I must be a idiot! I have the option to work from home, I just dont feel like I would be as productive at home and it would be such a hassle! Ugh, I hate having to get up in the morning and get ready and then drive 45 minutes to work each morning but at the same time I feel like its whats keeping me going and feeling decent everyday! I dont want to sit around at home and work......some days I change my mind....and then say I am going to work from home and then I come in the next day and have a good day at work and actually like being here.....something is wrong with me! I figure I probably only have another 4-5 weeks of working anyway so whats the big deal at this point?

I am pretty sure its a pride thing.....I dont want to be "that pregnant person" if you know what I mean. I want to be the one that never complains, and never calls out, and works up until the day I have the babies! Why can't I just be the pregnant person that doesn't care for goodness sakes? Its like I want to be the legend, the one that all other pregnant girls after me hate because people will say "Well Erin was pregnant with Twins and worked up until her water broke"! Lol. Oh the standards I set for myself!!

I think a big part of it too is that I told myself from the start I was going to carry these babies with no problems and I feel like if I stop doing what I have always done and start to give up my body is going to do the same and they are going to come early!

Ugh. So, for now, I told my supervisor to set me up to work from home and I will play it by ear. Maybe next Monday I will hate work again and decide to work from home? Who knows anymore. Either way.....I'm working today!

HO HO HO! Merry Christmas!

Christmas is my favorite holiday, I mean, really, who doesn't love Christmas? It has always seemed like such a magical time of the year. All the lights and decorations and the smell when you walk into the stores of the spiced pine cones! Uh, I just love it! Did I mention that Christmas is my Dad's birthday too? His middle name is actually Noel! So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I got pregnant to find out my due date was actually Christmas Day!

Unfortunately when I found out it was twins I knew that due date was out the window, but its still fun to know that the Christmas decorations are starting to go up in the stores (despite the fact its not even Thanksgiving yet) and that means its getting closer and closer to when my girls will be here! I am a little worried that they will come a little too early (around Thanksgiving) and I wont be able to go out with the family for our annual "Find the perfect Christmas Tree hunt"! You know where the whole family goes out together to the Christmas tree farm and we all race around to find the perfect tree, then when we all find ours we sit around the lot comparing the size and type of tree we picked for that year! Dad always thinks he has the best tree........I personally think I have the best tree, and my brothers, well, they always end up with a tree way too big for their house! Lol. I am sure everything will work out though, it always does, and I have instructed the girls not to come on Thanksgiving day......please girls, I love Thanksgiving dinner! Don't make me miss my Turkey dinner!!! I also told them they can't come until after we venture out for our Tree! I am hoping to get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving! Its way earlier than we usually go, but hey......we gotta make sacrifices this year!

Also, instead of doing the gifts for every single person in the family this year we decided to do Secret Santa's and put a $100.00 limit on it so everyone gets a decent gift and we only have to buy for one person! The hard part is we have dubbed it a "no gift card Christmas" you actually have to use your brain to find your person a good gift. I of course pulled my father......sheesh. I have no idea what to get him. I have been racking my brain for days now trying to think of something to get the man that has everything! So, if anyone has any bright ideas let me know!

Nursery Pics

Well, I finally decided to take some pics of the nursery now that its just about done! Can't wait for the girls to get here to put them in it!

Thursday, October 22, 2009

31 week update!!!

Well, things are looking good. I am starting to feel worn down sometimes. Being pregnant with two babies is no joke! It is so darn taxing on your whole body! It takes every ounce of me to get through a day!

So....where to start? I had my OB appt this week. I only gained 2lbs (in 2 weeks) and she was happy with that. So I am up 34lbs now, which I am very proud of by the way! Also I am measuring 42 weeks now! I start going for my non-stress tests Nov 2nd. I have to go twice a week, thats gonna suck but hey, whatcha gonna do? OH yeah, I PASSED MY 3 HOUR GLUCOSE TEST!!! GO ME! So, I can resume my insane sweets eating! All I want this week is a chocolate banana cream pie! I think I will make one on Friday night!

I finally got the nursery back in order after the baby shower. It was sheer hell trying to find someplace to put all the things we got. I cleared out room in the linen closet and got rid of tons of things we didn't need anymore and finally found room! So everything is washed, folded and put away and we are ready for some babies!

I also have been cooking like a maniac lately? Is that a form or nesting? I haven't cooked more than 5 things this whole pregnancy (Thanks to my loving husband Gary) and now thats all I want to do!

So the past week I have been making tons of food to freeze for when the babies get here! So far I have made the following:

3 meals of shepherds pie
5 meals of chili
3 meals of chicken stroganoff
10 twice baked potatoes
4 meals of tuna noodle casserole
4 meals of chicken pot pies
Honey mustard chicken fingers
BBQ Chicken Fingers
Beef Bean and Cheese Burritos

If you are looking for easy recipes I have been using this blog for good ideas she has great ideas and recipes there!

So I figure by the time I am done I should have enough food to feed Dh and I for at least 2 months! Lol. By then hopefully we will have a good routine down and will have time to cook again! I have to say though, that having this food in the freezer makes me feel literally 1000x better! I guess its just one less thing I need to worry about when the girls get here! Who is going to have time to cook when they are here? Not me thats for sure!

Well, thats all I can think of right now. I have no memory left on my memory card so I need to get a new one so I can take a updated picture! I'll try to get one within the next couple days!

Baby Shower

Well, I had my baby shower on Sunday. It went great. Lots of people showed up and the girls got tons of things! Including tons and tons of clothes! Oh boy, you would never imagine all the clothes!

We still have some things we need to buy but having the shower definatly helped out. Gary and I went out to Target yesterday to get a few things we needed and ended up spending $200.00.

So besides that I have to go for my 3hr glucose test on Friday. And then we are going up to the campground to finish closing up and then we are done doing anything on the weekends until the babies come! I am so excited to sit around and do nothing! Well, I doubt I will do nothing but I wont have anything planned and that feels good and relaxing already! Hopefully this weekend we can finish cleaning out the linen closet and organizing the stuff the girls got and putting everything away. The nursery looked so perfect on its filled with clothes and presents and all sorts of things! Its gonna take me forever to make it look good again!

9:00 am Phone Calls....Never good!

Well, I have had quite the morning already. I got up late, couldn't find one pair of dress pants that were clean or fit me, got stuck in traffic, and got a call from the nurse at my OB's office saying I failed my 1 hour glucose test.


I dont worry about having GD. I know I should, but I know that it can be controlled with diet so as long as it can be controlled thats all I care about. I do however hate the idea of having to sit at Bristol Hospital for 3 hours and do nothing for the 3 hour test. What fun!!! I have no idea what I am going to do to stave off the boredom. I hate sitting around and doing nothing. HATE IT!! I guess I could bring a book and just read for 3 stupid hours. But that gets kinda uncomfy in a chair huh? Oh well, at this point it has to be done and I can't do anything about it. I took Friday off of work. Anyone wanna come with me?? Lol!

Ob appt

Well, just had my OB appt and I was 185lbs and up 32lbs total! I am also measuring 40 weeks which just down right freaks me out considering I am only 28!!!! She also gave me my stuff for my Glucose test I have to take this week so that should be very very interesting! Hopefully I pass!

Grow Babies Grow!!!

So I had a appt with Uconn today for another Growth Scan and both babies are doing great! Baby A is breech and 2lbs 12oz and Baby B is transverse and 2lbs 13oz. Everything looks perfect and I have another growth scan in a month and then start going for NST's 2x a week at 32 weeks. Its crazy to think in a month I am going to be 32 weeks!!! Eeeek!

27 weeks!

When I found out I was pregnant with twins I was so paranoid I would never make it this far. Now I am this far and feeling great. How strange! I guess nothing worked out like I thought it would huh? Thank goodness!

I am so grateful I still feel great. I think 99% of it is mental at this point though. I refuse to let myself feel like crap! Sure I get dizzy and winded but hey, thats just part of pregnancy right? I am guessing I am experiencing it a bit sooner than a singleton pregnancy but I dont care. I'm pregnant and thats all I ever wanted and I will not complain about it! Well, except maybe for the heartburn part, but hey, it will be over before I know it I'm sure! And then I will go back to my heartburn free self! Can't wait!

So things are moving along. I have my next growth scan on Oct 2nd and I can't wait to see the girls again. Gary finished painting the trim in the hallway and babies room last night. Now I can finish up the nursery!

I did all the girls laundry the other day too and put it all away. Also, I just ordered 12 more Rocky Mountain Diapers from Kellyscloset today giving me a grand total of 34 diapers for the girls. I still want about 12 more though!

Gary has a wedding to go to tonight that I didn't feel like going to so I am going out to eat at Chili's with my girlfriend and then home to do some housework and maybe put the nursery in order!

We bought a boat and need to go drag it out of the water this weekend, its at the campground we are seasonals at. I am hoping to talk Gary into going up there one day instead of the whole weekend and maybe spending a day at maybe? I would like to make something to freeze for when the babies get here! Chili maybe? Some waffles? And maybe a casserole of some sort! That will give me a good start on some things to eat and then I will try to make a few more things the following week to freeze. Ooh the fun!

Oh how I love you Fanta Soda......

So let me start by saying heartburn sucks!!! I was up all night with one baby in my bladder and the other shoved in my ribs giving me the worst heartburn possible! I take Zantac everyday and this wasn't even touching what I was going through last night! I hate taking 2 Zantac a day but after popping 8 tums in 2 hours I decided it was time to take the plunge and take a second. At that point my heartburn was so horrible it took forever to kick in. Anyway, needless to say between getting up to pee 5 or 6 times last night and the horrible heartburn I had I didn't sleep too well!

Anyway, I have found for some odd reason when I drink Fanta Orange Soda my heartburn goes away instantly. I can't figure out why? I never drank Orange Soda in my life before getting pregnant.....never mind orange sode, I never drank any soda! But for some reason one day I was having horrible heartburn and started craving orange soda. Its like my body knew it would make it feel better! So today I screwed the Zantac and just drank a soda. I feel better already. Thank goodness for FANTA!

Only 20 days until my baby shower! How exciting! And that means only 20 more days to finish up the nursery.

I can't wait for camping season to be done and over with so I can get something accomplished for goodness sakes around my house. Its a wreck!

99 Days to go!

Well, its actually less than that I am sure but its still pretty cool! I am hoping its more like 79 days! Lol.

So yesterday I got my country save detergent and got all my CD's washed, set on the smallest setting and stuffed with their inserts. Now all I need is two adorable babies to put in them! Gary seems slightly sceptical on the whole cloth diapering thing. He pissed me off so bad yesterday that I threw a handful of inserts at his face at point blank range. Man that felt good. Anyway, I don't remember what he said or did except he kept saying he thought the idea of poop getting on the diapers was gross......I told him to shut the hell up and get used to poop because I am positive its going to end up on more than just the diapers! What I think I will do is not even bother busting out the cloth diapers until I have to send him off for a case of diapers every couple of days and see how long until he freaks about how much money we are spending on the diapers! That should work.

So, besides that I went through my closet (at midnight) and put into storage bins all my spring and summer maternity clothes that either don't fit me anymore or its too cool out now to wear. So, now I just need a second rod for the closet so I have more room for the girls clothes and then I need to clean out the linen closet and then the spare room closet and I will be all set on the "closet situation".

Tonight I am going to go home and wash the girls new bedding and all their preemie, newborn and 0-3 month clothes they have so far. While they are washing I will work on the linen closet with Gary.

All thats left to do after that is find some curtains, a rug, and some things for the walls and the nursery will be all set. I just want it done so I can start cleaning the rest of the house!!! I think the nesting has begun!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Phew......almost 26 weeks.

Well I am almost 26 weeks. This pregnancy is flying by! I know I am going to blink my eyes and suddenly it will December and my babies will be here! I have so much to do! Our second crib finally came in yesterday so Gary needs to put that together and I stil have yet to find curtains or a rug for the room not to mention anything for the walls. I need to wash all my cloth diapers and the babies clothes and put everything away. Ooh boy, so much to do and so little time. I worry constantly that I am not going to be ready or that I am going to forget to get something! Its all driving me nuts! Just the other day I realized my girls were "sockless"! Poor things! I can't believe socks never crossed my mind! So of course I ran out and got some socks for them but now I am constantly wondering what else I am missing?

So besides what I need to get done, I am feeling pretty good! I switched bed's and started sleeping in our spare room (sorry Gary) and sleep so much better in there for some reason, so that's helping! My back is a little achy after sitting in a chair all day at work but I guess that is to be expected considering the way I slouch all day! My feet start to hurt if I am on them too long too, I think they are just giving out under my 26lbs I have gained so far! Lol. They are not used to all this extra weight at all.....I have to say neither am I!

So besides a few aches here and there I feel good. Hopefully I continue to feel good. I don't want to end up on bed rest. Its my biggest fear for some reason! I just want to be able to work up until I have the babies! I feel like the second I start to give up mentally my body is going to give up physically and I can't have that so I plan on working as long as I can and getting through this like a normal pregnancy (whatever that's like???)

Also, I wanted to start making and freezing meals for when the babies come, goodness knows I am going to have no time to cook in between feedings, changings and trying to get a few minutes of sleep myself but I just can't bring myself to get moving on it. Part of the problem is when I would do it-which would be weekends we are camping and secondly we have no drop in freezer yet to start storing everything I could make. I am getting anxious worrying about food! Lol. I guess I could just live off of cereal if necessary? But I would rather have a good home cooked meal for goodness sakes! So if anyone feels like making me anything be my guest!! Lol.

Nursery Preview

Okay here is a sneak peak at the nursery color and one of the cribs. When its done I will post more pics.

Mama got some new shoes!

Well, thankfully my feet grew some now that I am pregnant so that warranted a new pair of sneakers! Yippee for me! I just love shoes. So, I found a cute pair of Nikes....after looking at a pair of L.A.Gears (yeah if you dont know L.A.Gears your just too young) and decided I should stay in this century and went with the Nikes. But seriously, the L.A.Gears were cool too!

25 weeks!

Well, here are my 25 week belly pics! I'm getting huge now!

25 week Appt!

Well, I had a Ob appt this morning. All went well, I am up 25lbs at 25 weeks and my uterus is measuring at 32 weeks.

My doctor is still a little quacky too! When she measured my uterus she seemed shocked by how big I was measuring and started telling me it could be "extra amniotic fluid" etc, etc.....then she pulled out her Doppler to listen to the heartbeats and after finding one said "well there's the baby" and I was like...."um, what about the other one"? And she got a look of confusion on her face and said "Oooohhh, your having Twins! No wonder you are measuring so big"!!! Sooo, again, she's Lost in the Sauce! As long as she remembers there are two of them when it comes time for delivery I really don't care!

So besides that we got everything put together except our second crib. We are still waiting for it to come in and once that's done we just need some curtains, a rug, and something for the walls and the nursery will be done. I started sorting the girls clothes last night. I came to realize they have nothing for when they come home but lots of cute summery outfits for when they are bigger! I better get buying them some long sleeve onsies and pants and socks for the winter or they may be cold!

Did I mention I can't wait for them to get here!!!!!!

24 weeks.

Well I am 24 weeks today! I have made it to my first "mental milestone"! If the babies were to be born today they would have a 50/50 chance of survival! However I am confident my babies will make it full term and be just perfect!

So, I had a ultrasound this morning, the babies weight 1lb 7oz and 1lb 10oz and were flipping and moving all over the place. They were so cute. I can't wait to finally have them here in my arms though!

After the ultrasound Mom and I went to go get pedicures. Lucky for us I read a magazine yesterday and found out grey is the new "in color" for the fall. So, of course us being so damned gullible and desperate to be "cool" we picked out a grey! Lol. The look on the guys face when I handed him the color was priceless...I must admit though, I like it. Lol! It could just be hormones taking over my thought process though!

Who can resist a cute hat? Not me thats for sure!!! I went on today and found lots of cute beanie hats for babies. I found these two for 50% off and pd $8.50 each for them.

On a side note: I am getting my hair cut tonight. Nothing major, just a trim, but I haven't got my hair cut since January. I used to go every 2 months or so but with being pregnant and having morning sickness and being exhausted I have put it off! So tonight my hair will be revived!

Ballet Slippers...

Thats the color pink I chose for the girls nursery and it is PINK! Lol. Thank goodness I didn't go with the brighter pink because this is definatly pink enough. I can't wait for the second coat to be put up and the cribs to be put in there! Mom also ordered the changing table and dresser for the nursery yesterday so that should be in around the same time the other crib comes in!

Now, because we are switching around all of our rooms we have stuff everywhere! I can't wait to get my house back to normal and all the rooms done and set. The good thing about it all is my whole upstairs has been painted at some point over the past 6 months! The only room left to repaint is the livingroom (and Gary doesn't know it yet but I am already picking out the color for it).

Now if I could just figure out what to put up on the rest of the walls I would be all set with the nursery! Any ideas???

23 Weeks

Here is my belly pic from this week! I am still feeling great except for this constant annoying feeling like babies are punching me in the bladder!

Spoiled Babies!

You know, it amazes me already. These girls are not even here yet and they are the most spoiled things on the planet! Everytime I see something cute I have to buy it for them. I think they have more clothes than I do already. Today on baby steals they had the most adorable rufflebutts. I of course had to buy 2 before they sold out! They are pink and adorable. I can't wait for them to get here!

On a side note. We are starting the nursery this weekend. I still need to pick out a paint color. Which of course will be some variation of pink and then we will be all set to go! We only have one crib to set up this weekend so that shouldn't take too long! Our other one is coming sometime in the next 2 weeks. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later!

I will feel so much better when I get their dresser and changing table in though. I have so many clothes and cloth diapers to put away and no place to put them right now. Its driving me nuts!

There is soo much to do before they get here. It just overwhelms me sometimes! Between doing the nursery, and moving our bedroom, washing all the cloth diapers, washing all the clothes and bedding and blankets. I feel like screaming some days! i guess this is just a prelude of things to come! I am sure life will be insane with twins!

Diaper Bag

So there are two sites I have been watching like a hawk lately! The first one is and the other is Both of these sites list great bargains everyday for 55-65% off the original price. You need to be quick or somethings sell out in minutes!

Babysteals lists only once a day at 11:00 EST and 9:00 MST I believe but they have great deals when you come across something you love, dont hesitate! Just buy it.

Mamabargains will list something until its sold out and then relist more items all day like that. Its nice to find lots of bargains all day long!

So today I got a DwellStudio Diaper Tote on babysteals for $56.00. ORIGINAL PRICE WAS $160.00! What a great deal. I love their totes too. They are so big and cute! Here is a pic of the one I got. (I got the one to the far right called the charlotte)

I can't wait for it to get here so I can see it in person!

"See you in a hour"

Well, I got a email from my mom yesterday that my cribs came in that she got for me. I saw the same ones at BRU but then checked Walmart and they had the identical ones for cheaper so I thought "Okay, how bad could it be to deal with Walmart" so we ordered them from there. So......they came in and my mom did Site to Store delivery so we could go and pick them up there. Well she made the mistake of having them shipped to the most disgusting, ghetto store in the state of Ct. But we decided to brave this hellhole of a Walmart all for the babies! After making our way through the welfare mom's and their 28 kids they couldn't afford to have we got to the Site to Store pick up section. There is a sign that says "For Service Hit this button on the screen" so, I hit the button and Me, Mom and Gary started to wait.............and wait..........and wait. Every once in a while someone who barely spoke any English at all would come out of the back room and say "You being helped"? Then we tell them nope and they say "Me go get someone". That happened at least 10 times. Bunches of different people going to get other bunches of people but yet somehow we aren't getting helped?

So I keep pushing the button, finally some girl came out of the back room and acted stupid like she didn't know we were there. 40 minutes after we walked into walmart we walked out with our 2 cribs and 2 mattresses.

We got them home and openened them and what would you know, the first one had a hole right through the back of the crib.....this is my "You have got to be kidding me" moment of the day. So, we put it back in the truck and trecked to a different Walmart to return it (there was no way I was going back to the ghetto) and returned the thing. I ordered a new one last night. It should be here in a week. For now, we are just going to paint the room and get the one crib in there and patiently wait for the other to come in! Hopefully the new one wont be damaged!

Thursday, August 20, 2009


Okay so I was getting ready for work this morning and noticed I had some red lines on my boobs. At first I thought maybe it was just lines from my bra I was wearing but after checking 20 times at work, they are still there. I asked Gary when I got home what he thought they were and he says definatly stretch marks. How in the heck did I manage to get stretch marks some place tht never grew?? I mean, they have grown a tad bit but honestly I am have always been tiny up top and nothing seems to have changed now that I am pregnant. My belly however that is gigantic doesn't have a stretch mark on it yet......go figure? Now I am super paranoid about the stretch mark thing, now that they have shown up out of no where some place that isn't even stretching??? Oh dear goodness help me now.

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


Welp here is my most recent belly picture. Man do I feel huge after seeing these pics!

So close but yet so far away.....

Well, I am going to be 22 weeks this week. I am so excited. Last weekend Dh and I cleared out the office, painted it and moved all the furniture in so that is our new spare room! Now we need to move our bedroom furniture into the old spare room and then clean out our old room. That will end up being the girls nursery. Mom ordered the cribs this week too so those should be coming in anytime now (Thanks Mom and Dad). All I need to do now is pick out a paint color!

So besides the rooms, everything else is going great. I feel great, I think I look pretty damn great and I love being pregnant at this point! Except for the heartburn, if I could never have that again that would be great! Lol. AND if my babies don't come out with TONS of hair like everyone is telling me I am going to be pissed!! Lol. I had no hair as a kid. I don't think I got hair until I was 3 and then I cut it all off with some scissors I found laying around so my girls need to have hair. I hate to end up with the little girls that look like little boys and wont have any hair to put clips or bows in!

Oh yeah and Dh said to me the other day that he thought it would be a good idea to take over handleing the money and paying the I am seriously not sure why he thinks he wants this job. He sucked at it when he had a few of his own bills to pay that's why I took it over before we got married and now all of a sudden he thinks he can handle a whole house full of bills and issues?? So this leads me to wonder if he thinks I spend too much money (which I do) and we have too much debt (which we do) and maybe he thinks he can "fix" it?? Lol! I have no idea? I keep asking him if that's why he says he wants to do it? Maybe he is trying to control my spending and he says no, but yet, for some reason I don't believe him?? Hm. So, I figure what the heck......I'm gonna let him take over. I need a break from worrying about the money anyway, but you know, I am still going to be checking up on him to make sure everything is paid! Lol.

Kung Pow Chicken kicked my butt.......

Okay I dont think it was kung pow chicken I ate, maybe it was mooshoo pork or egg foo yung?? Not sure anymore but it tasted pretty good going down and then within a few hours my stomach felt like hell! After finally dealing with my "stomach issues" I went to bed and woke up at 3:00am with the worst stomach cramps and horrible heartburn. I was literally begging for mercy after downing 3 tums and cursing that darn chinese food!!! Then on top of having all this heartburn the babies were moving around like maniacs all night and I could barely sleep a wink! OOh the fun of pregnancy!!!!

On the brighter side, Gary painted the spare room yesterday and all we have to do is move the bed in there and then move our bedroom into the old spare room and we will have the babies room all clear and ready to go for painting! Now if I could just pick a color in the sea of pink samples I have........

Friday, August 14, 2009

Time to get moving!!!

Well, FINALLY Gary and I are staying home this weekend to work on the babies room! The complicated thing is not only are we doing the babies room but we are moving our spare room into our office and moving our bedroom to our old spare that is moving 2 rooms and painting 2 rooms! This is gonna be fun!!! The hardest part for myself is going to be picking the paint colors! Lol. Other than that I am going to sit around and point fingers as much as possible! Lol. But it is going to be sooo exciting to finally have a place to put everything I got the girls so far. I have bags and bags full of stuff sitting on a dresser in my spare room and I can't take it anymore. I need organization!

Monthly OB appt......

Ugh, well, where to start! I guess with my weight would be good huh????? I weighted in at a whopping start weight was do the math! Lol. The doctor said I was right on track? Right on track for what? The plus sized section? My blood pressure was high too, 152/90. She said it was probaly a fluke, I have taken it twice already this morning and its fine now 122/78 was my last one so I am sure everything is fine with that. She asked me to track it for a few days and then fax the numbers over to her on Thursday so I will do that and hopefully everything will be fine. I am sure it will be. My uterus is all the way up to under my boobs. I forgot to ask her how far ahead I was measuring this time though as I was so shocked it was up that far already!

My next ultasound is on September 4th too and I can't wait to see the girls again. So exciting! I am feeling great too, no swelling, no fatigue, no morning sickness! I love this part of pregnancy. Hopefully everything keeps going this way and I continue to feel great!

"What kind of cake did you say this was"

That was the line that started one of the few fights Gary and I have had in our Marriage! Let me start by saying #1 I love my husband to death but #2. He is as dense as a rock wall sometimes! So, for the past 2 days I have been nagging Gary to do 2 things for me, one of them being put the table and chairs that are sitting in my breezeway downstairs in the storage area so I can have my breezeway back and the second being to sew the elastic back in one of the two pairs of black pants that I own that actually fit my huge ass right now! Yes you heard or shall I say *read* me right, Gary sews. I took Home Economics when I was in middle school, I even remember sewing some sort of demented stuffed animal for class but if you asked me now how to thread a sewing machine, I would certainly tell you to go fly a kite. My dear dear husband on the other hand took one look at this sewing machine when we got it and had it threaded and working in 5 mintues. He says all you need to do is "follow the arrows and instructions on the machine" Uh, all I can say. So, since he knows how to use this ridiculous machine and I have no clue, he is the sucker ( I mean sewer) in the family. Sooooooooooo, He told me he would sew the elastic back in for me and 2 days later it wasn't done.....I calmly went to my linen closet last night and grabbed one of our sewing for dummies kits and got out some black thread and a needle and proceeded to huff as loud as I could while I tried to get the thread threaded into that little ass needle hole. So, after he hears me huffing he turns to see what I am complaining about and says "What are you doing I said I would do that for you". So I nicely told him that I needed the pants for tomorrow and since it was already 10:30 at night I would just do it myself. So he took them from me and hooked up the machine and started pinning my pants. In the mean time I honed in on some cake he brought home from work with him and was asking him questions about the cake and he said some girl makes cakes once a week or something to that effect and that one was red velvet and it was really good then out of no where I sneezed and pee'd on myslef (yes one of the joys of being pregnant with twins) so I dont remember anything else of the alleged "cake conversation" since I was running to the bathroom trying not to pee puddles on myself at that point. So, I came back after fixing myself and dug into the cake. As I was eating I said " What kind of cake did you say this was and I thought you said this was good cake" and he looked at me and said "Well which one are you eating" and I said "The red one, why, there are a few different kinds in there" and he freaked.....he said "If I listened to him when he talked I would know there were TWO kinds of cakes in there and the other kind was the good kind"! Um, excuse me?????? If I listened to him??? Huh??? How the hell could I listen to him as I was trying not to pee all over myself?? I just dont understand, so I obviously screamed that at him and then of course in a rage I chucked my Red Velvet cake at him and my pants and my newly painted cabinets in the kitchen and stormed to the bedroom. The cake sucked anyway so it was no real loss to me and damn it felt good to throw something but seriously. He is freaking dense. Dense, dense, dense. He thinks the whole damn world revolves around his freaking cake explanation. So he came in later and apologized like a good husband and said he should be more aware of the things I am going through while being pregnant and blah blah blah but still, and he was sorry for being so insensitive (in my opinion the man is a little too sensitive these days) but still he's a idiot! But I love him just the same!

Snow Balls for Breakfast and Heartburn for lunch......

UGH......Why O' Why do I do this to myself?? For starters any "normal" pregnant girl with killer heartburn would take her zantac like a good little girl as soon as she wakes up. Nope, not this one. This one decides to down a cup of coffee, a apple turnover and a freaking package of snowballs for breakfast! Then I wonder why a hour later I have the most horrific heartburn on the planet?? Not to mention how horrible it was that I ate snowballs for breakfast! But seriously, there was no way in hell I was resisting the most delicious "snack" in the world! Everytime I see that fluffy pink marshmellow covered in coconut I just go nuts. I have no idea what comes over me but by the time I try to tell myself "no dont do it" they are both shoved in my mouth and gone! Ooh well. I am sure I am going to be sorry when I go for my OB appt next week and step on that scale but its a small (or maybe big) price to pay for that pink goodness!!!


So, I just can't stop ordering cloth diapers! Lol. I just keep looking for different kinds and just keep on ordering! My newest additions are Tiny Tush One size fits all with the snaps! Here are some pics of them. I think they are so cute. I can't wait for them to get here so I can check them out! Gary keeps begging me to stop ordering them until the babies get here but there isn't a shot in hell of that happening!

I also got one Bum Genius one size fits all with Velcro (it was on clearance)I like the colors, but am not sure how I am going to feel about the Velcro. I guess I will see after I use it for a bit?

So besides my cloth diaper obsession, everything seems to be going good. The babies are moving up a storm and kick so hard I can see them from the outside. I just love laying around feeling them move. It is so strange that I have two little babies in me! I have been doing lots of clothes shopping for them too and I know what everyone is going to say...."stop buying clothes, everyone is going to get you clothes" but I seriously can't help myself! I keep on finding the cutest things and just have to buy them!!!

Oh yeah and the names are officially: Gillian Adair and Finley Hope. There is no going back now, I already ordered their names for over their cribs!

Monday, August 3, 2009


Okay its been a while since I updated my belly pic so here you go! I feel gigantic and am freaked out that I am actually going to probably double in size before this is done!!! Oh the fun!

Wednesday, July 29, 2009


Has anyone noticed how long and gangily my babies look in my widget thingy to the left? They look like tall skinny things! Lol. Hard to imagine thats what my babies look like inside of me right now?? I need to fatten them up! Time to go eat something!

Okay, Okay, so I changed my nursery plans 10 times already...give me a break! I have decided this is gonna be the nursery! I already ordered the bedding and am so excited to get started!!!!

Here are the cribs from Walmart.

The bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids and is from the Penelope Collection I believe.

The Dresser is also from Walmart

The changing table is also from Walmart

And I think we are going to do the same paint color on the walls of the pottery barn catalog which is called Blushing Bride by Benjamin Moore. I may go a shade lighter but these are the plans so far! Now all we need is to clear out the rooms and get started!
