Report to Labor & Delivery...

Monday was my last appointment with my doctor and I was told to report to L&D next Thursday. While most would be extremely happy, I am happy but also filled with a bunch of emotions. I actually cried in the doctors office, followed by crying when I got home. I dont know if I am just scared of the process again, or I cant believe its already time, or that this is my last pregnancy because I am getting my tubes tied, or that I am nervous about becoming a mom all over again...I dont know! What I do know is that I am on BIG ball of emotions right now! 

Am I the only one that has been emotional since my pregnancy is coming to and end and I'm getting ready to meet my little guys!

Im super excited to meet my little guys! And what seemed so far away is now so close! 

I haven't done an update in a while on them, so let me fill you in...

**My Shadow and I...**

How Far Along? 35 weeks

Size of the Babies? In my last growth scan both babies were close to 6lbs a piece. Pretty big for some twins! So on top of the water weight I am carrying over 13lbs in baby! Jesus!!! LOL!!

Maternity Clothes? Yes, I am growing out of my maternity clothes...uhh ohhh because Im not buying anymore. Thank God for a big husband...I usually stretch out his t-shirts! 

Weight Gain? I stopped counting! Week before last I gained 4lbs between Monday's appointment and Friday's Appointment...after that I didn't want to know anymore

Stretch Marks?  On my Belly only

Gender? Boys

Names? Darrick Vati II and Douglas James

Sleep? I still only sleep for about 2 hours at a time! 

Cravings?  Sweets (Cookies and Ice Cream, and Candy Corn...but not together)

Belly Button? Innie

Best Moment? Showing Emma her brothers face on the Ultrasound and she says...Awwww :)
And another great moment was seeing Baby A's face...looks like he is going to look like his Mama (well from the ultrasound) hopefully they stick with the plan to look like me, since Emma is a spitting image of her Dad! 

So this is probably the last update you will get on the boys! Unless I have something to share early next week! Other than that I will be headed to L&D next week. 

Keep us in your prayers...

{Product Review: I See Me! Inc. Books} Emma's Farm Friends

First let me start by saying how much I LOVE this book!!! 

I love the how the book is personalized, and I love the Farm theme! The reason I am so in love with this book is because in speech therapy we are currently working on Animal sounds, and the farm theme falls right in line that. And having her picture on each page as the farmer is a BONUS!!! 

I was approached by a representative from I See Me! Inc. to review one of their personalized books. When we were in talks of reviewing the book I had to email a picture of my daughter to them and they would use it for her book. 

I was amazed when I got the book in the mail! I showed it to all of my family; I kind of received weird looks "like why are you showing me a children's book"...but once they noticed Emma's picture they fell in love with the book like I did! LOL! 

I SEE ME! Inc. specializes in personalized items. Items such as; Personalized Children’s books (ex. personalized farm bookpersonalized stickers), LunchboxesPuzzlesColoringBooksPlacematsStickers  and GrowthCharts,  unique gifts and personalized gifts  

Something for everyone and every occasion! With the Holiday's coming up please keep their items in mind for your little ones!!

Pregnancy Favorites...

When it comes to pregnancy every woman is different. Some of the things I like may turn another woman off and vice versa. I thought I would share some of my must have items that made my life a little bit easier...

Preggo Pops

I found these when I was pregnant with Emma and I had morning sickness/nausea from time to time. With this pregnancy my morning sickness was so severe that I was willing to try anything to help. I would usually keep these in my purse so when I felt sick I could eat one! 

Crossbody Purse

Betsey Johnson Be Mine Crossbody Leopard Satchel

Now from time to time I switch from carrying a bag to wearing a crossbody bag. Ever since I started carrying a purse I would go through periods were they would get on my nerves. And this time is no different, I am carrying so much extra weight on my body that I just didnt want to carry a purse too. But what woman can give up carrying a bag altogether...so I went to one of my favorites a crossbody bag! Even though I own a ton of crossbody bags I found a new one to add to my collection...many probably wouldve opted for a neutral bag to carry with everything. 

But as the saying goes...

Yoga Pants
Since I am a SAHM I wanted to be comfortable at home and out when I had to run errands during the day. I had a pair of Yoga Pants that I would wear around the house and on weekends from Target. Since I started showing immediately they were the only thing I could fit and be comfortable. So I stocked up (I actually dont want to see another pair of yoga pants after I have these babies) when they would ran a sale. I will probably wear them home from the hospital because I can fit them and they arent tight. 

Also a perk of these pants is they doubled as the PERFECT maternity pant. The part you usually fold down, I pulled up and it went over my belly just like a full panel maternity pant.

Cacique Panties

When I was pregnant with Emma I had a gift-card I had to use at Lane Bryant and I purchased some panties. And I have honestly been hooked ever since, these are some of the BEST panties I have ever had. I know the maternity store says they sale plus size panties, but if you are big like I am at the moment you need the real deal...I suggest you go to Lane Bryant! I went up a couple of sizes and they fit great around my belly! 

New Balance Sneakers

While walking in the mall I had on a pair of flip flops and my feet were killing me. My husband and I stopped in a shoe store and I picked these out. Since being pregnant and being swollen, I couldnt fit any of my shoes. I am currently wearing a size 10 and these were the only cute sneakers I could find that I knew I would be able to wear the entire time. But aside from being cute, they are SOOOOOOO comfortable! 

I must admit dressing for pregnancy the 1st time is hard. You have to basically buy a wardrobe for being pregnant. But the second time around if you keep those clothes from the first pregnancy and add a few odds and ends then it works out pretty good for you. I have lots of shirts from my first pregnancy that I wore in the beginning, now that I am going towards the end everything is little but thats okay because soon I will be back in my regular clothes (hopefully)! 

These are a few of the things that have gotten me through this pregnancy. Do you have any items that helped make pregnancy easier for you? Or something you had to have (not cravings, but like material items)?

Sunday Social

Im slowly getting back into blogging...today I decided to participate in the Sunday Social. If interested in participating just click on the pic below to get the questions for this week as well as the questions for the following week! 

1. Favorite Month and why?
I know most would probably say like their birthday month or a month that has some significant meaning like an anniversary or something...but I think my favorite month would be the months towards the end of the year. September-December...I love Fall and everything that comes with it; football, hot chocolate, chili, Thanksgiving & Christmas, watching the leaves change. So honestly I dont really have one particular month, I like the fall months! 

2. Favorite Holiday and why?
As I have gotten older I my favorite holiday has changed from Christmas to Thanksgiving. Im just so grateful for everything in life and I think that changed after I had Emma...so I love spending time with family and reflecting on how good God has been over the year. 

3. Are you getting the new iPhone or are you more of an Android person?
I use all Apple products except for the iPhone...weird I know! But no, I will be sticking with my Samsung Note...I will be upgrading at the end of the year but Im sticking with Android! 

4. Most thoughtful gift you have ever received from someone?
Since I have been with my husband, he has probably taken the award for the most thoughtful gifts! I have a silver heart necklace that has two diamonds in it and one diamond represented him and the other Emma. I guess since I am getting ready to have twins I need more diamonds to represent everyone (sure hope he's reading)! LOL!

5. Something you can’t wait to splurge on? A House!
