Samantha’s Pregnancy Journal

Samantha’s Pregnancy Journal

I had the twins!  Meet my daughter Elizabeth and son Ellis on my family photo journal.   Thanks for coming along for the journey.  These are some of the gems in my photo library from throughout my pregnancy.  Hope you enjoy these little moments as much as I did.   Here are a few of my favorites:

I’m the pregnant princess on the right!

After working at Disney all day, passed out on the couch…

Picking up luggage after last trip, only one thing left on the to do list…

Wonderful news, I made it to 37 weeks! Feeling great and very thankful.

Who wins this Thanksgiving face-off? Me or the turkey?!

Not exactly how I want to introduce my kids to music but it’s a start…

Hmmm, might need to take one of these for a diaper bag…

If I could I would keep up with Fiona (my cat) and her mandatory 18 hours of sleep a day.

Samantha Brown Pregnant - Photos New Orleans

A trip to New Orleans. We tried to find the fortune teller who predicted in the New Orleans episode of Great Weekends that I would have twins. I guess it was her day off.

Samantha Brown Pregnant - Photos Venice

Italy without wine wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. Shooting in Venice Italy at 5 months for Travel Channel’s Trip of a Lifetime.

I love Andrew Zimmern but Bizarre Foods America should come with a medical disclaimer recommending that pregnant women with morning sickness avoid watching it.

With my tea now handy, this is when I first realized I could make “the bump” work for me.

Backstage at the Travel Expo in Dallas about to go on stage. I’m really hoping pregnancy brain doesn’t erase my 45 minute speech.


Stay tuned…many more where these came from!

    You really look great, Sam. I know you are going to be a great MOM. Do you think you might do your travel show after you have the babies? We sure miss seeing you on the Travel Channel.

    Samantha, you look radiant! I am so excited for you and your husband. When is the big day? I hope you have a safe and pain-free delivery (I’m a wimp). I had “natural” childbirth for my first 2 sons, which convinced me that God helped scientists create pharmaceuticals for a reason when I had my 3rd child. Don’t be a martyr.

    Love your show!

    Samantha, you are beautiful. The baby glow you have all about just adds to your beauty. Just remember that your are the boss. I have talked to two types of men who say men are total head of the household, either single or fixin’ to be. lol.

    Hi Samantha,

    You are beautiful, bright, and talented. Congratulations on having twins. It’s wonderful and I’m very jealous of your husband. He has to be great guy to get you! I traveled for a living in the clothing business for 17yrs and have visited more countries than US states. Your travel shows are excellent. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

    “I love Andrew Zimmern but Bizarre Foods America should come with a medical disclaimer recommending that pregnant women with morning sickness avoid watching it.”

    YES! I am a pregnant lady with morning sickness and I had to run out of the room the other day when BFA came on and my husband didn’t change the channel quickly enough. The credits had barely started and it was too much.

    have you had the twins elbowing you and rolling around? I swore there were aliens in my stomach! feeling better yet? I was sick ’till the day I delivered…actually I was sick on the operating table! (c-section)

    Hey, Smantha,

    Do the airlines charge you for your extra “carry-on”?

    Just kidding, kinda.

    Taught my grandsons about seeing the world with your shows. Thanks. Keep them coming! The shows, I mean.

    You are way too cute, Samantha! Your pictures make me smile. I was shoveling snow & working out until two days before giving birth. I couldn’t sit still! My son has been the same way, much too active! He was born on Thanksgiving 2011. While everyone was eating turkey, I was pushing out my very own, lol!

    Congrats Samantha! I saw the recent CNN article about you and I rushed to your website and checked out your blog. I’m so happy to hear the great news – Take care always.

    Hey Sam!

    Pregnancy definitely suits you! My wife and I have enjoyed your shows so much. We are California girls, but my Grandma was from Brooklyn! Oh yes, and she had twins as well, I was born 25 years later on their birthday!

    Thank you for all you have given to so many, congratulations on the twins and Happy New Year!
    Love, Leslie and Dana Beau

    Thanks for the new pics Sam. Was that turkey pic Thanksgiving??!! If it was, you must be massive by now. I’m extremely surprised that the twins haven’t let you know they are cramped yet and started saying, “Are we there yet?” “Are we there yet?” I know I posted it to you on Twitter but have you seen the pic of the baby who would be born shortly thereafter reaching out of the womb and grabbing the doctor’s finger? I’m so totally, thoroughly awestruck by that. Good luck & congrats. You’ll do great…!

    you look ahhhhhhmazing! sending tons of good vibes for a quick, safe “pain free” (does that exist?) labor 🙂 …..TWINS, YAYYYY!

    Sam you look even more beautiful than you normally do! It’s been a couple of decades since my daughter was born but I can tell you bringing the baby home is an experience you never forget. My advice is to relax and get to know the great little human beings who now openly share your life. The time flies by so quickly. Enjoy every second of them! And my motto during the most challenging times was always “If there will ever be a time when I will look back on this and miss it, then I don’t mind now.”

    Wow! Still a hottie, even at 37 weeks. You look radiant, glowing. Congratulations ! Do they still do the brain- washing Lamaze propaganda classes these days ? For our first child we were so brainwashed about the evils of medication that when the doctor poked his head. In to ask if my wife needed an epidural, I responded: ” No, we’re not ready yet.” I’ll never live that down ! She’ll never let me forget that.

    You look wonderful! What an incredible journey you are on! My twins are now 13…girl and a boy….these years have been a blur….I also have a 20 & 17 year old which is cause for a lot of the blur! My advice is to enjoy every wonderful crazy and sometimes stressfilled moment! Take lots of pictures! And finally…my favorite vacation with my children is a Disney vacation! Do Disney often!!! Congrats!

    I am so happy for you! I have been a huge fan of yours for several years. Have you been on a babymoon yet? It would be great for you to do a show on your babymoon. It’s a trip pregnant couples take to savor the last period to couplehood before the baby arrives.. lots of websites cater to babymoons. I have 2 kids: a 5 yr old and a 3mth old and before each birth I would obsessively plan babymoons I never took! Have a safe delivery! You’ll be an awesome mom!:)

    Congrats on making it to 37 weeks, Samantha – and you look fantastic too! I’m looking forward to hearing all of your ‘baby travel’ tips after the babies arrive. I’m planning on flying for the first time with my baby this summer and I get overwhelmed every time I think of the logistics (wish I’d thought to check whether or not my car seat was FAA approved before I got it!) Good luck with your delivery and enjoy motherhood. It’s the most amazing job ever 🙂

    Hey Sam,

    I met you briefly at an appearance in Dillard’s, Dallas, TX. I left you a note about how much your shows (2003) helped me recover from a nasty auto accident. I still watch any new work that you do. I am as big a fan as ever and hope you continue to produce travel shows, with twins tagging along!

    I wish you and Kevin a safe and happy delivery. I know you both will make great parents! Good luck and happy nesting. It is almost time…

    Samantha Brown!

    I have always been a Travel Channel fan and even more of a fan of yours. I love that you are so genuinely yourself. You are from Dallas like me. I’ve printed off your cute haircut many times. I’ve been asking around “Why isn’t Samantha Brown on TV?” I’m so glad you are doing something personally happy for you. You helped me through my bed rest with my younger son and through my maternity leave too.

    Congratulations on your twins. Glad you and your husband have been so blessed. Looking forward to seeing you back on TV!!! So jealous of all your travels and experiences but how fabulous is life now that you’ve experienced all those beautiful places and experiences and such a great experience as children.

    Congratulations!!! Glad the babies arrived safely. Can’t wait for the pics! 🙂 Enjoy. Your heart will surprise you with its capacity for love… just when you think you know what love is, you have kids and your heart expands beyond what you thought was possible! Awesome!

    I just read on MSN’s Wonderwall that you’ve made an addition to your brewd! Congratulations to you and your husband on the birth of your twins! It’s been so long since I’ve seen your show on Travel Channel, and for a while I was thinking, am I missing something? Is she gone?? (I’m in college and rarely watch tv, so it could just be me) But you’re not. You’re still traveling and you’re still gorgeous. I am so happy for you. Please, please don’t stop doing what you do. You are an inspiration and a joy to watch. Sending you love and warmth, Samantha.

    Samantha, my husband and I really have missed seeing you on TV. When we watch you on TV it’s like traveling with a dear friend. You are such a joy to watch. We are so happy for you and your husband, but most of for your twins they are going to have such a great Mom. May you be blessed with healthy and happy babies.

    Sending good thoughts and love your way. Kevin is a lucky man and your children have the best mom ever—except for mine, of course.
    Take care of yourself and enjoy this time in your life.
    Always looking over my sholder while traveling–would love to bump into you in Paris, for sure!

    CONGRATS!!! I know you’ve had your twins for a while now, but I still wanted to say congratulations. I’m so happy for you! I feel like I know you and I’ve traveled along with you so I’m super, super happy for you and your hubby.

    I hope you go back to filming shows soon. Maybe now you can do shows on how to travel with kids, or how to be able to do a little of both (family and romantic getaway).

    Anyway, hope your babies are doing well. Thank you for sharing these awesome moments of your life!! 🙂

    I just saw Samantha on Trip of a Lifetime and saw she was pregnant……sorry I hadn’t followed her for a while. I remembered the episode when the lady told her she would have twins!!!! Had to come to her website to see if it was true. Beautiful Family……
