Complaints & Maternity Pics! Oh my!!!


Hello All:

I’m so sorry that I have been a horrible blogger! I really thought I would be blogging every week until the babies arrive. Yeah right!!! I’ve been working like a dog finalizing things at work before my maternity leave, getting the nursery and my house ready and just laying down because I just feel like crap honestly.

I’m currently 36 weeks and I have a scheduled c-section on November 9th at 38 weeks! I’m praying I go into labor sooner or they will move up the csection date but that is not looking likely. The only reason why I would like the 11/9 date is that it was my grandfathers birthday and coincidentally, 3 years ago on November 9th, we lost our son at 25 weeks so that would totally turn that day around in my mind. It’s so strange that my OB schedules the csection for that date!!! 

I would like to go early because I feel like crap. If one more person says “wow…you look like you are ready to go” I may just commit murder. My belly is huge, I’m up about 50 pounds, both ankles are swollen, my right knee is swollen, I’m barely walking with a cane, my hands are swollen, I can’t feel my fingers or toes and I have carpal tunnel in both wrists! Oh…and I forgot to mention that breathing is difficult and I don’t sleep AT ALL! Whoever said pregnancy was such a wonderful time in a woman’s life LIED!!! I’m really done with this!

The one thing that lifted my spirits is that I received a bulk of my maternity photos the other day. A friend of ours did them for us and they came out 1000 times better than I could have ever expected! My wife is anti-Facebook but I did go behind her back and post a few because they are AWESOME!!! Shhh…that is our little secret! Here are a few pics that I absolutely love!!!

Thanks for reading and I will keep you posted on when these girls finally want to make an appearance!

  1. Beautiful photos and I have that same dress in purple and can still wear it now postpartumn. I’m so sorry your feeling so shitty, girl you know I know what that feels like. No one thought I’d go into labor early but I did so who knows. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you to have a great labor and delivery no matter how it turns out. Are they head down or are you a c section no matter what? My Csection was terrible and I would have preferred the pain of labor and pushing two babies out any day, but that’s me. I can’t complain too much though cause once your a momma to those girls your gonna melt. I’d love to have you on my FB, find me by my name Alicia Hennager I’m also on Instagram. Here’s to a quick next few weeks, healthy girls and healthy mommas!

    • Thanks Alicia! I’m Jada Williams Jones and I will find you on FB right now. I know u can relate to what i feel…i read your posts lol! It really sucks right now but hopefully they come soon. I really have no desire to have a vaginal birth to be honest. I just will do whatever the docs say is the safest for the babies and because one is breech both my regular OB and my perinatalogist both think this is the safest route so that’s what I’m doing. How many weeks were you when you went into labor? And damn…I looked everywhere for that dress in purple because that is my absolute favorite color and it was sold out everywhere lol! How are your girls doing? Give me the real deal! Did you go back to work? Any advice or info you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reaching out and I also want to say my condolences on the death of your friend. When I read your post about her, I was truly touched. We need to meet one day…u r a sweet soul!

      • Your sweet thank you! It’s been a rough few months since they have been born due to my friends death and also just living at my in laws. Baby-wise the first 2 weeks were a sleep deprived mess and I pretty much hated my wife the whole time cause she wasn’t very pleasant or as attentive to me or the babies as anticipated. She’s gotten a bit better but really I feel like I’m in a hetero marriage these days, only way to describe it. Having twins is MADDNESS! You will go crazy a few times, you will have moments of “what the fuck was I thinking”, you will think your terrible at it, and probably want to leave your wife a few times. And then the flip side, the cuddles are amazing, the love in your wife’s eyes for them will make you love her more and forgive her shortcomings, the attention from others is sweet and annoying lol, breastfeeding is both amazing and completely exhausting with two, their first coo’s and smiles will make even the worst day worth it and any little milestone feels like the proudest moment of your life. I’m not back to work yet and I’m not sure when I will be. Right now we can afford me to be home and I can’t imagine leaving them. Plus I breastfeed all the time and don’t have milk frozen cause I have little time to pump between feedings. I have a boy and a girl Daiton is the boy and Emerie is the girl. Daiton is the “talker” and the smiley one and Emerie is the serious yet physical one (standing, holding her head up and rolling over all between 4-6 weeks) she does put smile much yet or coo but I guess that’s normal if they conquer physical things first. Having two you unknowingly compare them all the time and it makes you worry more when one seems ahead of the other. You can message me on FB anytime with any questions and I’ll give you my new momma thoughts. I’m blunt and not a sugar coated, so be prepared.
