First trimester fatigue is legit, y’all. If you didn’t catch our announcement on Instagram, then welcome to the party! That’s right, C and I are expecting twins! And from the moment we found out (quite possibly a few weeks before then, too), I’ve been a complete zombie. Anything involving activity outside of laying in bed sounded like a nightmare to me… thus, all this time in-between posts.
But, I’m back and feeling great! I’m 18 weeks today and just this weekend, felt the babies’ first flutters. So surreal, let me tell you. Besides a bad case of round ligament pain and fatigue, I’ve been morning sickness-free! The babies are growing like they should and everything looks wonderful. Such a (double!) blessing, since we’ve been waiting a while for these two. We weren’t that surprised (but definitely excited) with the initial ultrasound results, as there are twins on both sides of our families. In fact, C’s mom is a twin! Now, it’s just a matter of readying the nursery and preparing ourselves for double diaper duty!
Since I finally have a bit more energy, I’m sharing the recipe to these Double Chocolate Chunk Muffins. Since Stonyfield teamed up with Divine Chocolate, these muffins are filled with Smooth & Creamy Vanilla Yogurt and chunks of rich, dark chocolate. Divine Chocolate is co-owned by the 85,000 farmer members of Kuapa Kokoo, the cooperative in Ghana that supplies the cocoa for each bar of Divine. As owners, they get a share in the profits, a say in the company, and a voice in the global marketplace. So, not only does Divine support family farmers, their chocolate tastes amazing, too. I hear pregnancy cravings calling and these muffins will definitely satisfy them!
