Once again, another month goes by and I haven’t done a “bumpdate”. Some of you started asking why and honestly I just forgot! It’s been so busy around here with the holidays and BABY coming soon! Ahh! We are slowly getting things together around our house. It’s hard at the same time because I decorated for Christmas and will have to literally tear it all down so fast after, so that our house is fresh and clean and ready for baby girl mid-Jan. A couple of updates for you guys now!Read More
Okay- I asked if you all wanted to see another bumpdate and majority said yes! I’m still being a total slacker letting 8 weeks go by since my last, but life is busy! We have had some crazy ups and downs the past couple weeks that I’ll disclose at a later time, but for now I do have something SO exciting to share about this pregnancy (well for me it is)! Read More
So, I’m feeling better (usually)! So that’s a plus. I’ve still been super tired and didn’t get that second tri “burst of energy”- but I’m pretty sure that’s because I’m chasing around my WALKING/ RUNNING / JUMPING / CLIMBING toddler. Props to all moms, but especially moms with multiples. Exhausting. Read More
As many of you know, I have been super lax about doing a weekly bumpdate (sorry!). I have been so busy with Cam, changing jobs, and being exhausted that I just haven’t had much time or energy to relish this pregnancy. I know that sounds horrible, but it’s definitely been an adjustment! Read More
Okay, so I know I have been MIA lately, but this little surprise has been kicking my butt! We are pregnant, again! I have been exhausted, nauseous, and sick on and off. Every day is a different story. Plus, I am trying to chase around a toddler, so that has been an interesting journey. I cannot imagine what it’ll be like with two. I. am. terrified.Read More
Mark and I knew we were having a boy from the time I was about 15 weeks pregnant. However, we didn’t want to tell anyone until this shower, so it was super important to me to have a neutral baby shower. I cannot begin to explain how perfect my baby shower was. It was simple, neutral, and just plain perfect. My sisters-in-law totally nailed it. Read More
Ok, so we all know that there are gifts people register for when they have their first baby that make you scratch your head>> is this really necessary? I’ve had my own baby shower, but I’ve also been an attendee at plenty of them as well. I have gathered a list of things that make me say “ohmygosh, yes! I need these!” and a list that makes me think “um, really? “. Of course, we’re not listing off diapers + wipes + carseats (the essentials); these are items a lot of people don’t think of right off the bat. I think this would be great to look at before registering for your own baby shower, or buying a gift for another mama-to-be.Read More
As many of you know, my pregnancy with Cam was far from perfect. I was extremely sick for the first 15 weeks (when I say extremely, I mean I had to go to the hospital a couple times for IV fluids), along with battling gestational diabetes and oligohydraminos (low amniotic fluid).
