I had a bit of a scare over the weekend and called in to my doctor's office yesterday and went in for a ultrasound at 10:30am. I have been feeling a ton of pressure in my lower stomach and getting nosebleeds frequently all the sudden (obviously separate incidents). All the nurse heard was twins in our conversation and got me in right away...the one good thing about being considered "high-risk".  Turns out both babies and myself are perfectly fine and healthy but they are both head down and getting bigger hence the heavy/pressure feeling.  My doctor suggested getting a pregnancy belt which is basically a girdle to hoist my belly up because it is only going to get worse.  Oh, the joys of pregnancy I never knew about. 

PS- nosebleeds are also common during pregnancy due to the increase blood flow in your body and make your tissues soften.  This can cause your blood vessels to constrict, which results in congestion and bloody noses.

The 90's Are Back

I am totally getting a 90's vibe in this floral bomber jacket and I am digging it. Even though this City Chic piece is long sleeved, it is semi sheer and perfect for the weather we are having right now. I wanted to keep the rest of the look current so I added my skinny jeans and a casual tee so I could keep the jacket center stage. If you are not a fan of the 90's...talk to the hand:)

Fall Favorites

It was only 81 degrees yesterday and that was enough for me to add some fall accessories to my outfit. I have not worn this Old Navy vest from last year nearly enough but have a feeling it will be a staple this year over my growing bump. Of course my floppy hat had to make an appearance as soon as the temperature's dipped because I love this thing.

The more I am talking to people about this gestational diabetes screening that I failed, the more other people are telling me that they failed and it is making me feel better.  I moved my new appointment up to next Tuesday instead of Friday just to get it over with.  It's really more of a nuisance right now more than anything because I have about a million things I could be doing rather than sitting in a doctor's office for 2-3 hours straight.

So funny story about this Spruce and Sage dress.  I have been hoarding it for about three weeks now thinking I may wear it to my baby shower this Saturday.  I thought it was so cute and the material showed off my new curves nicely and I love the way the belt accentuated my bump.  So I try it on last night and the material is starting to stretch thin across my boobs and baby bump...man, these boys are growing fast!  I ended up wearing it to work with a cardigan thrown over it since the fabric is thin in all the wrong places and it is officially out of the running for my shower.  I may need to go up a size in dresses soon...yikes.

Gestational Diabetes FAIL

August 25, 2015

DSCN5021

I received the call from my doctor's office late yesterday afternoon that I failed my gestational diabetes screening test.

  Um, WHAT? Excuse me?! Come again???

I thought it might happen because I have a family history of diabetes but I have been working out and eating semi healthy throughout this entire thing. Apparently none of that matters...skinny and fat woman both get gestational diabetes, it doesn't discriminate. So my next test-a two hour test- is now scheduled for next Friday at 9am (sigh). This test requires fasting, no food after midnight and only water in the morning, and then I drink a even bigger, sugary drink and have my blood tested every hour for two hours.

This is just a bump in the road and I'll do anything for these babies.

Twenty-Five Weeks

I was 25 weeks pregnant as of this past Saturday. I literally could only have 10-13 weeks left until my babies arrive because my doctor already said there was no way I will make it to 40 weeks with the twins. I am hoping (fingers crossed) that I will make it 37-38 weeks, the longer they have to cook in my belly, the better!

I had my glucose screening test to check for gestational diabetes on Friday morning and ended up being at my appointment for three hours (I was beyond annoyed). I got to see my babies in an ultrasound but the tech wasn't my normal lady and didn't do a good job, I was in a different ultrasound room where the picture was very grainy and Baby A was not cooperating and we still did not get some of the anatomy pictures that were supposed to be checked off the last time. The glucose drink itself was not bad at all...kind of like a flat Sunkist drink but then waiting an hour until they could draw blood (and the television not working that day in the doctor's office) was mind numbingly boring. They took two vials of blood and told me I would get the results this week. On a positive note the babies weigh 1.8 and 1.9 pounds each, had great heart rates, and I had perfect blood pressure and my weight gain was right where it needs to be.
