thinking ahead... to my closet (and a babies update)

Okay so I was originally going to share some of my maternity must haves but polyvore + blogger just weren't coexisting nicely for me this morning so I will save that for another day.  Moving on.

I have been having tons and tons of crazy dreams lately... dreams that have involved crazy things such as me... giving birth to not two but three babies (then freaking because we only have a double stroller, our new car will only take two infant car seats and I only have two boobs), me giving birth to two babies and it being rather easy (I am hoping this one comes true) and then me actually fitting into the size small belly bandit that I purchased one day post delivery (I am convinced that I will actually need my Mom to run out and get me the medium).  This last dream is messing with me and making me think that there is a possibility that I will shrink down quickly... which in turn has gotten me thinking about what I will wear when that happens.

So I've let myself click away from the maternity and baby sites and onto the long forgotten sites that hold so many possibilities for a future no-longer-preggo me.

Cissus Button-Up, Gingham via Anthropologie ... okay so just the blouse with a nice pair of jeans... I'm not so crazy to think that I will be sporting something so dressy anytime soon.
Citizens of Humanity Ava Jean via Anthropologie... I have to mention that I had a pair of these jeans about 3 years ago, I wore them right through the bum and have been searching ever since for their replacement!
Stripe Blouson Dress via JCrew.. love this striped dress
Vintage Tee via JCrew... I am very much a jeans and a tee-shirt type of girl and I love a good soft v-neck
Jericho Tote via JCrew ... okay not exactly clothes but this would go with everything...

Now, if only mat leave pay were equivalent to my regular pay... and then I could snap all of this up!

On the baby news front we went for our ultrasound today and I am so happy to say that they are BOTH still head down!!!  One baby is so head down that her head is resting... or pushing right on my cervix.  At this point, I am not going to let this stress me out.  She is just making it easier for her grand entrance!  They are measuring at 4 pounds 1 ounce and 4 pounds 7 ounces which apparently is very good.

I hope your day was as wonderful as ours!


  1. Good news on the baby front! You are growing some strong, healthy babies in there. Keep it up! :)

  2. Happy to hear the babes are down!

  3. Wow, great news and cute tops!!

  4. Hi -I've been following your blog for some time and I am really excited for you. I'm an identical twin and grew up in Ottawa. My twin sister and I are both pregnant -so I have also been having vivid dreams. Last night, I actually dreamt about Alice and Isla and everything had gone super smooth for you guys. Weird eh -thought I'd share!

  5. @Katie - thanks for following along! Funny that you grew up in Ottawa and are an identical twin and that you and your sister are both pregnant! Love that you had that dream! I checked out your blog but your last update was in 2010 unless I'm missing something. Loved looking at your before and afters!

  6. lol. yup -haven't decided if I will continue with the blog or not. We took a long break from renos but actually just finished the master bedroom so I just may start posting again. Thanks for checking it out! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. I will be following along.

  7. I just had twin girls about a month ago and less than 4 weeks out I was down 8 lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight. Unfortunately time makes it virtually impossible to get dressed in the AM so I spend much of the day in PJs (I also have an almost-2 year old) and the weird belly/saggy skin (gross) makes it impossible to fit into my pre-preg clothes or anything smaller.
