Then, at 8:30 p.m., fans get an intimate look into Mina and Jasmine's lives at home as they prepare for their new additions in the half-hour special, Renovate Like a Mother. In self-shot footage, they share their pregnancy stories, struggles and parenting advice. The special also offers a sneak peek of the upcoming season of Good Bones, which follows Mina on her IVF journey and showcases stunning home renovations in her Indianapolis hometown. It also previews Jasmine's new series, Help! I Wrecked My House, in which she and her team help overzealous homeowners fix their DIY disasters.
