After a long, surreal lead-up to my scheduled c-section, there was nothing left to do but deliver some twins. On July 22, at 38 weeks, we were actually sleeping when the alarm sounded at 4 a.m. For the last time, […]

A Luxe Babymoon Staycation (Or Combatting the Summer Pregnancy Symptom Known as FOMO) http://homebodyinmotion.com/summer-babymoon-staycation-ideas/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/summer-babymoon-staycation-ideas/#comments Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:07:24 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1580 I often hear people talk about how awful it was for them, or must be for me, to be heavily pregnant in the summertime. And I generally disagree wholeheartedly—it’s been mostly fine! But there is one majorly uncomfortable issue with being pregnant in these hot months, and it’s not the heat. Here’s the real reason […]
