Bump Alert!

Surprise, I’m pregnant with twins! I’m now entering my second trimester (16 weeks) and can share the news with family, friends, and you my loves. Keeping a pregnancy secret is pretty tough though. Along with getting creative about covering my growing belly in photos, ordering two entrees with a side of fries while my lunch dates ordered kale salads did start to raise eyebrows (I blamed my insatiable hunger on interval training). I felt so nauseous the first 12 weeks but finally starting to feel like myself again.

My husband and I had wanted to start a family this year and were thrilled when we found out that we were expecting. We were also in for quite a surprise when, during our first sonogram, my doctor uttered the life changing words, “Wait, there’s two heartbeats! You’re having twins!”. At that moment, I looked at my husband, who’s face grew pale and then had to be accompanied to his seat by the nurse. I still can’t believe those words, “twins”. Twins run in both our families (my grandmother had two sets) but never for a second did we imagine the gene would be passed down to us! It’s still surreal to think that in just five months, our party of two will transform into a party of four.

So now I’ve traded my skinny jeans for maternity jeans (I’m still warming up to them and having a hard time finding maternity clothes I like), and as my life is evolving, so will my blog. I’m thrilled to finally share my pregnancy with you and hope that you will join me as I chronicle my journey into motherhood. Rest assured, I will still be covering the same topics but I will also add more on beauty, wellness and work-life balance.

If you have any suggestions or things you would like me to share, let me know. I love hearing from you and will do my best to make maternity chic. Chanel does make totes that work as diaper bags, after all. Much love! xx
