The scale has barely moved in the past two weeks but my pants are noticeably less tight and more comfortable. Read more
What a Week!
Monday and Tuesday went just fine, totally normal days, except for an extra dose of cranky from one of the twins, who are 20 months old now. I went to bed nice and early, feeling fine. My husband woke me up around 10 and the wheels just came o... Read more
Doing Something Right
As a parent, anyway. My 18-month-old daughters applaud for strawberries, love brushing their teeth, and their favorite toys are books. Not to mention that they are happy, healthy, and on track to ahead with their developmental milestones.

As you may suspect, I've been pretty busy lately and haven't had time to Spark. Or brush my teeth or shower every day, for that matter. :) But I wanted to share a few things with y'all while both babies are napping.
Madelyn and Caitlin are... Read more
Baby Pics and Info!
At long last, here's the baby blog! I have been just a bit busy, so getting to the blog took longer than I would have liked. But better late than never!
Me just before my c-section:
My Last Pre-Surgery Medical Appointments
Today I did the final blood work, sonogram, and physical exam before my scheduled c-section on Friday. Everything went very well. The babies look great and are both head down, getting ready to go. The doctor asked me if I wanted to consider a na... Read more
Approaching The Finish Line
Today I officially hit 38 weeks, the longest most doctors will let moms of multiples carry. (Delivery-related risks, like placental abruption, go up significantly after 38 weeks because moms are simply carrying too much baby.) I am truly surpris... Read more
Hanging In There: A Scare and Modified Bed Rest, But Very Healthy Babies
The past couple of weeks have been interesting, mostly in the sense of the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times." A week ago on Monday I had the worst scare of my pregnancy to date and probably one of the bigger ones in my life. Sund... Read more
Change in Tactics
My last appointment was a week ago, at 31 weeks, and my doctor said it's time for a change of tactics. He said the girls are growing apace and that now the concern is how long I can keep them in. So starting next week I will have weekly biophysi... Read more
Nesting and Resting (A Pregnancy Update)
On Sunday I hit 30 weeks, which is technically "any day now" territory for twins. And, much to my own surprise, I'm quite calm about it. A week ago my doctor told me that everything looks good and there is no reason to worry about preterm labor.... Read more
Survived the Storms and Had a Great Check Up Today
Hurricane Sandy was kind to DC; apparently she saved her wrath for places further north. A tree branch smacked the trunk of my husband's car and dented the trunk and smashed a tail light but that was the extent of the damage. The new roof repair... Read more
He's Finally Getting It!
Yesterday I complained about DH having a slight case of anal-cranal inversion regarding the arrival of our twins. Well, he's corrected the situation and is fully on board now. I am hugely relieved!
Last night we had a breakthrough over din... Read more
Yesterday my lovely Sparkfriend MERRIKATE reminded me that it's been over a month (!) since I last blogged and asked me for an update - and she's not the only one who's asked how I've been lately. And I know that I owe you guys pictures. I've go... Read more
Where I've Been
I've been pretty scarce for the last month or so, but all is well. In a nutshell, 3 weeks ago was a very rough week, 2 weeks ago was hectic, last week was blissful, and this week I've been catching up and getting back to normal.
The best ne... Read more
