On August 30, 2013 we went for a routine ultrasound at 11 weeks gestation to make sure everything was progressing as expected with our identical twins. It was my first pregnancy and these babies were so wanted. We were thrilled when we found out we were having a baby and over the moon (and slightly overwhelmed!) to find out we were expecting identical twins! I sang to them...We dreamed about their futures. We had a glorious first three months of pregnancy. But the world came crashing down on me ... Read More about 5 Things I Never Knew About Miscarriages (Until I Had One)
Looking for unique and fun gift options for baby showers? Incredibundles may be just what you need! When I was pregnant with Iker, I constantly changed up my registry.

My husband is from Cuba and you would think he would love the heat, but he's actually worse about it than I am! I'm always sneaking the temperature up a few degrees when he's not looking to try and save a buck or two. :) Even so, since we run the A/C so much, our summer electric bill can get down right outrageous! If you get as ... Read More about Summer Electric Bill – Save Money and Energy!
