Can I just say, quarantine is hard. Quarantine with toddlers is hard. Quarantine when you are an extrovert is hard. Quarantine when you have health problems is hard. It’s hard to do basic everyday things, it’s hard to entertain almost 3 year olds when you can’t go to the zoo or aquarium or go shopping with them (which my girls love doing lol), it’s hard getting your mental health in a good place when you just want to be around people but can’t, and it’s hard to see your doctor and get good care when you can’t see them in person. But even with all this hard there are still ways to care for yourself. Over the past 47ish weeks of quarantine I’ve found some of my favorite methods of self care. I thought I would share them in case anyone else is having a hard time finding ideas to take a break for themselves mentally.

It’s amazing how much can change in 365 days. 1 year ago today I went to Dr. A’s office with my friend Kyrie for what would be our final frozen embryo transfer no matter what the out come was. Continue reading
The girls are 3 months old! Today El decided she didn’t like tummy time and rolled over to her back. I thought it might have been a fluke so I put her back on her tummy and she almost immediately rolled over again. Continue reading
The girls are now one month old! They have been keeping us on our toes and we have been very busy. They have been to the pediatrician twice now and were both about 5 pounds at their last appointment a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading
Saying it’s been a very busy week for us is a bit of an understatement. Tomorrow the twins will be a week old! We were discharged from the hospital on Monday so we have been learning how to handle two babies at home with two dogs as well.
We are almost there! This is week 38 for us and the end of the pregnancy part of our journey.
