Highlights

June 15- 21, 2024 is Birth Trauma Awareness Week 🤍 . With Arya, my birth experience was amazing. Everything went the way I thought it would. I got to hold her, breastfeed her, and I was happy. When I had Levi, I felt like a piece of my heart and soul was ripped out. . Levi was born at 29 weeks due to PPROM and SVD. While we knew the risks of premature birth was high, we were still unprepared. My labor started slowly at 4am, thankfully I was inpatient already, and we tracked it's progression for what seemed like forever. The pain was fierce. I couldn't get relief from an epidural due to placement failure (4th time was the charm). We had to rush to an OR in case I needed a C-section, therefore leaving my husband, the only person I could have with me, behind to get ready. There seemed to be 20 people, at least, catering to me and Levi. My team of doctors, and Levi's NICU team. The second he was born I got 2 seconds to look at him. I remember sobbing. I remember feeling scared and confused. He was taken away and I still needed to be tended to. Liam, Levi's twin brother, still needed to be manually delivered by the doctor and that would be the last time we would be connected as one. I didn't get to hold Levi. He was placed in a bag, in a glass box, and taken away. . Birth trauma is a complex issue that can affect both mothers and babies. It's important to raise awareness about birth trauma and provide support for those who have experienced it. Birth Trauma can happen to anyone. I will gladly tell my story, even though I am still coming to terms with what happened, in case I can help ANYONE going through anything remotely similar. Today, almost 13 months after Levi's birth, I am still in disbelief we actually went through all of that. Even though it was a scary day for us, I am so grateful for our wonderful doctors, nurses, technicians, and staff that got us through it. I'm still sad I had to miss out on the experience of a "normal" birth and postpartum, but I am so proud of what my body could still do. I know it wasn't my fault. . . . #twinmom #twinloss #prematurebirth #TTTS #nicu #nicumom #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #birthtrauma #dearnicumama

Happens in the blink of an eye 🥺 and to think, one year ago he was hooked up to so many cords, wires and tubes. We were so afraid to touch him. Now he's crawling everywhere, getting into everything! 😭❤️ . . . #twinmom #twinloss #prematurebirth #TTTS #nicu #nicumom #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #realmomlife #momitforward #motherhoodrising #realmotherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #motherhood #mom #momblogger #parenting #baby #motherhoodunplugged #babiesofinstagram #parenthood #mommyandme #mommy #mommyblogger #moms #toddlersofinstagram #mama #mommylife

Checking off the summer bucket list ✔️✔️✔️ . Last summer we spent 71 days in the NICU/hospital. From June 26th until September 7th. This didn'twave much time for all the summer activities, or we would feel guilty/empty having fun while Levi wasn't with us. So you BET we are doing all the fun stuff possible this year. Leave some comments down below what we should do, where we should go, and what we should eat! ❤️ . . . #realmomlife #momitforward #motherhoodrising #realmotherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #motherhood #mom #momblogger #parenting #love #baby #motherhoodunplugged #family #babiesofinstagram #parenthood #mommyandme #instagood #toddlerlife #mommy #mommyblogger #momboss #moms #toddlersofinstagram #mama #girlmom #mommylife

Celebrated this little life today 🌈🫶🏼🥳 . . . #twinmom #twinloss #prematurebirth #TTTS #nicu #nicumom #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #realmomlife #momitforward #motherhoodrising #realmotherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #motherhood #mom #momblogger #parenting #baby #motherhoodunplugged #babiesofinstagram #parenthood #mommyandme #mommy #mommyblogger #moms #toddlersofinstagram #mama #mommylife

T W E L V E . Celebrating a tiny miracle with a giant heart! Levi is officially 1 today (9 months adjusted), and I'm so incredibly proud of all he's accomplished. . If you had asked me one year ago if I was ready for another baby, I would've said no. We hadn't had his baby shower yet. We didn't have anything for him. I wasn't even packed for the hospital. But all that didn't matter, because now we were on Levi time. . Having a preemie baby was probably the hardest challenge we've ever faced, alongside TTTS and out of state surgery. Despite all odds, Levi continued to thrive and amaze us with his growth. . Today, Levi is the happiest boy ever (unless he's not, then he lets everyone within a 1 mile radius know). He loves to eat (still prefers bottles), his people, and Blue's Clues. He mostly crawls still, but will stand with assistance. I love watching him build confidence to try something new, he's definitely fearless. . Even though his life didn't start the way we envisioned or even expected, I couldn't imagine life any other way. He's the perfect addition and makes us feel complete. 💙🌈🥰 . . . #preemie #preemiestrong #oneyearold #twinmom #twinloss #prematurebirth #TTTS #nicu #nicumom #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #realmomlife #momitforward #motherhoodrising #realmotherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #motherhood #mom #momblogger #parenting #baby #motherhoodunplugged #babiesofinstagram #parenthood #mommyandme #mommy #mommyblogger #moms

One year ago today our lives changed forever 💕 . On this day, it was just a normal Monday. We had just spent the afternoon at the lake, ate dinner as a family, and I was putting Arya to bed. As I was putting some of her clothes away, I had dropped something and tried to catch it. That's when I felt it. I thought I had peed myself, bc pregnant duh, but when it didn't stop, we got worried. At 10pm we had called Strong and they quickly asked us to come get checked out. . I've never been in an emergency situation quite like this. Triage was new to me. I was scared and had no idea what was going on. I barely had anything with me and I had to leave Arya while she was still asleep. I cried so much, to the point the nurses asked what they could do for me. I was kept inpatient when they confirmed my membranes had ruptured. They told me Levi could come at any time, but we tried to prolong labor. At most, I could be waiting for 7 weeks. That seemed terrifying to me. Arya could visit, but thinking about being away from her for 7 weeks made me feel sick. "Luckily" Levi came 2 days later. . Any mamas facing PPROM, TTTS, SVD, traumatic pregnancy/birth, twin loss... I just want to be a safe place to talk, vent, or send love to. Nobody should be alone in events such as these. There is a community, and I hope to be just that. 💙 . . . #twinmom #twinloss #prematurebirth #TTTS #nicu #nicumom #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #realmomlife #momitforward #motherhoodrising #realmotherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #motherhood #mom #momblogger #parenting #baby #motherhoodunplugged #babiesofinstagram #parenthood #mommyandme #mommy #mommyblogger #moms #toddlersofinstagram #mama #mommylife

e.l.f. Contour Palette Review

There seems to be a top layer to all four shades that doesn’t allow much pigment to come through, but once you get past that, they colors are actually great (not amazing, but not horrible). The four shades are a light white-ish highlight, a yellow-y setting powder, a bronzer and a darker brown for contour. I use the first shade to bronzer around my face and then contour with the darker shade under my cheekbones. Leave a comment sharing your favorite contour palettes!

What I Learned.

For today’s post, I want to share with you some of the things I have learned along the way. Being married for one year we had to decide on where to live and car shopping as well as little things like what kind of coffee maker to buy. Some days he makes me so angry and some days he treats me like a princess, but I can guarantee every night I go to bed happy, knowing I have this person next to me that loves me unconditionally. You’ll have arguments, problems in life, hard times and good times, but you will always have love.
