Faux Leather Leggings with Assets by Spanx

Where has time gone? To recap, I had a very healthy pregnancy, and I also remained active to stay as fit as possible – I felt that prepping for labor was similar to prepping for battle. Overall, I was able to “bounce back” fairly quickly (thank you breastfeeding!), but that doesn’t mean my stretched mid-section from twins didn’t leave me feeling a little self-conscious. I’m so thankful for Justin who reminds me how great I look, and for however long your babies were in your belly is typically the amount of time it takes for your body to return to it’s “normal” state. Since I have another five months to go (*le sigh*), I’m super fortunate to Spanx who have helped get me through the holiday season.

Hello, Again!

Nordstrom red one-shoulder top | Brittany Gori | To B Candid

After a very serious hiatus from the blog, I thought it was only appropriate to reintroduce myself since my last post. Over the course of the last four-ish months my husband, Justin, and I have become more settled into the home we purchased this past summer, my blog turned TWO in September, and more importantly, I gave birth to incredible twin girls on August 3rd (there will be another post to properly introduce them). Ever since the twins turned one week old I told myself I would write their birth story and be diligent in recording memories for me to look back on. Well, that definitely didn’t happen, and here we are mid-December.

MATERNITY STYLE FAVORITES

Brittany Gori | To B Candid | Maternity Style

Above all things I wanted a healthy pregnancy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I also hoped to try and maintain my personal style throughout the process. However, when I found out I was carrying twins my entire wish-list was put on the back burner — my chest grew rapidly, and I started showing earlier than most. To be honest, unless you have a planned twin pregnancy, there is no way to mentally prepare for the exponential growth to your family. When it came down to buying a new pregnancy outfit, or saving to buy twice the amount of goods, the answer was pretty easy.

Bump-Date: 34 Weeks

Maternity Style | To B Candid | Brittany Gori | Pregnant with twins

They really don’t lie when they say pregnancy flies by. I’m just over 34.5 weeks pregnant (8.5 months), and like I’ve said time and time again, I thank my lucky stars for a really great pregnancy. I never got nauseous or had morning sickness, I still don’t have indigestion or heartburn, until last week my feet/legs haven’t been crazy swollen, I worked out/remained active as long as I physically could, and I’ve had decent energy levels until the summer heat kicked in. However, they also don’t lie when they say that those last few weeks are rough. I wanted to share some of the crazy I’ve endured which has contributed to me being MIA, so here it goes…

Maternity Photos: Maui

In April, Justin and I celebrated our Babymoon in Maui, Hawaii. It was our first time visiting the island, so we were excited to explore and soak in the picturesque beaches that we had heard so much about. I was six months pregnant, and because I was unsure of what the future had in store for the rest of my pregnancy, we decided it would be perfect to do our maternity photos while we were on the island to document our trip. Similar to my Mamamoon, the goal of this trip was to unplug and enjoy each other’s company, not jet around looking for the most Instagram worthy pictures. While I can’t say that won’t be the case for our next trip, my compromise was to have one night of photos, and spend the rest of the week purely relaxing and embracing island time.
