Post image for State of the Bump: 36 Weeks

Just as I reach the 36 week mark of growing these babies, I think I’ve also reached the end of everything google’s got on twin pregnancy.  And after googling everything I could think of for some nonexistent indication that would tell me the exact day and time the twins would arrive, we finally arrived at […]

We’re all still here, and the twins are still tucked in tight.  They’ll be making their entrance to the world soon though – more news on that later this weekend – post french toast!  My first day of maternity leave and final day of work until the end of July was last Friday, so it’s […]


Crock-pot Rotisserie-Style Chicken

Now this is a good idea.  Chicken that looks and tastes like rotisserie, but cooked in the crockpot.  Here in hot Bangkok at 34 weeks pregnant with these twins of ours, crock-pot cooking is about all I have the energy for.  We have a three day weekend (Monday is a Thai holiday), and filled the […]

I thought I’d be one of those really organized pregnant bloggers with some rhyme or reason to these updates. But I posted one at 24 weeks and here it is 31 weeks and change into this thing called pregnancy, and even though I know I’ll want to look back and remember this glorious time (of […]

Time is a funny thing for me at the moment.  All at once the days are inching slowly by while the weeks seem to be flying past.  Suddenly the arrival of our girls feels just around the corner…as long as I can survive the Bangkok heat and aching back/feet/hips for just a bit longer.  My […]

Well hello there.  I haven’t had much time to blog these past couple weeks.  I’ve been tired (and pregnant) and keeping things as simple as possible, but it’s been a tough couple weeks for other reasons too.  I’ve missed my family terribly and have felt as aware as ever of the physical distance from people […]

We’re in a season of anticipation.  There’s so much waiting involved in growing tiny people, and so many unknowns.  I’m working on being patient (always working on being more patient), but I find myself consumed with thoughts of April when (if all goes according to plan) we will meet these little girls and dive into a […]

State of the Bump: 24 Weeks

No food today – just babies. I barely cooked a thing all weekend.  Frank was in Chiang Mai with our visiting friends from Bulgaria, so I’ve been  content on my own with dinners of scrambled eggs, whole wheat toast, and variations on Crunchy Szechuan Green Beans. But seeing as we’ve finally reached the 24 week mark […]
