Thank You!

WOW.  We were so overwhelmed by the positive response after introducing Twin Talk yesterday! Thank you so much for sharing our excitement--we are humbled by your kind words and encouragement.  So many of you told us you've been looking for a place like this and we truly hope Twin Talk fills that void.

When we met to discuss March's calendar we looked at each other with wide eyes.  Where do you even begin?  It's not for lack of content--our list of topics is a mile long--but it's a bit like drinking water from a fire hose. 

And so we decided we'd start at the very beginning: Pregnancy.  If you're past that point, fear not.  We have full plans to cover everything twin-related.  Some topics will be lighthearted while others will be quite serious.  There is nothing funny about sleep deprivation, am I right? :)

Simply put, we are so thrilled you've joined us.  As a thank you, we've teamed up with Freshly Picked moccasins and are giving away TWO pairs of moccs ($120 value).  Visit our Instagram page for more details (@twintalkblog).

Tomorrow on Twin Talk we're discussing our maternity favorites! Leave a comment below and let us know what your maternity must-haves are/were (clothing, item, book, etc.)!

  1. So excited about this website!! Thanks so much for creating it and filling the void!!

    My favorites were definitely yoga pants from Motherhood Maternity and towards to end, dresses from Old Navy! And I read te book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins probably 2 or 3 times while pregnant :)

    Oh! And the Snoogle! And Tums... Couldn't love without my Costco sized bottles of Tums!

  2. Just one?! LOL. In different categories: Hanky Panky thongs (uber stretchy, soft, and fit pre-during-post pregnancy). Netflix/HBO2GO (bc eventually you WILL be laying around a lot). A pet (my male cat was my snuggle buddy from 20-38 weeks bc my enormous twin tummy was the warmest spot in the house). And then in the support category are the other two loves of my life, my husband and then 5 yo daughter.

  3. Gap Pure Body tees and tanks. So comfy I wore them for 4 months post-babies, too!

  4. I'm living in leggings (from anywhere - black, grey, patterned, any really) right now. And anything from Old Navy - jeans, shorts, shirts, tanks, and especially dresses. So comfy but still really cute... and very affordable :)

    Also, my must have is my body pillow. My husband might HATE it but I love it and can't live without it right now. Moose, our dog, loves it too!

  5. Old Navy Maternity Fold-Over Skirts and Rib-Knit Tanks in every color/pattern! Perfect for a summertime twin belly! And LOVED Gap Pure Body tees and tanks as well. I lived in my Wunder Unders from Lululemon for the first few months. After that, loved Boden Maternity Leggings. Um, colace (eek) and Tums are a must- although for severe heart burn Pepcid AC worked for extended periods of time and I didn't have to take as many. Also, my doc claims Tums = calcium = constipated. :( I read bits and pieces of "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads" by Dr. Barbara Luke and Tamara Eberlein. Overall, an excellent resource for nutrition, weight-gain goals, medical care for an expectant mom of multiples, and what to expect when you first bring your precious littles home! Oh, and I LOVED Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy for my belly- very gentle for sensitive skin and not very greasy.

  6. I lived in leggings and tunic tops! Netflix is also a necessity if you are on bedrest!

  7. I didn't have twins but I'm going to play along anyway :) Loved the BeBands from Target (cheaper version of the Bella Band), and lots of BioOil for a growing belly!

  8. Hi Ladies! I'm a fellow twin mom who sometimes blogs (when is there time?!) and I'm so excited about this new blog! I LOVED the Gap Body tees and tanks too. My boys are 4 months old and I'm still wearing them almost every day... Also, heartburn meds (Oy.)

  9. When I was pregnant with the twins I pretty much hated pants. All of them. I lived in leggings and dresses (winter weather didn't stop me!). This time I am pregnant with a single and jeans aren't quite as uncomfortable. A single baby belly actually fits in them!

  10. My twins are 14 months, but during my pregnancy I have to agree tums smoothies were a must to carry with me at all times, tanks/yoga pants (that hasn't changed much though, sadly =]) and my recliner! Towards the end sleeping flat was horrid and the only place I could get comfy was our recliner. Also -- a friendly attitude! Being approached in public and questioned didn't stop once babies were born so you might as well welcome any and all comments, questions, etc because it's pretty constant!

  13. I wore the heck out of my Target ("Be Maternity") seamless camisoles and my Old Navy maternity yoga pants (although I did no yoga in them) when I wasn't at work! I also could not have survived without the heating pad OR my protein of choice: peanut butter… and cheese :)
