Do not let the smile fool you. I am struggling big time. I knew as my pregnancy progressed things would get harder, but I was not fully prepared. I feel so stupid even saying this because we have 7 weeks or less left so I still have a way to go so that pretty much means things are going to get worse.Read More
We finally got to see our baby girl! Guys it had been 11 weeks... ALMOST 3 MONTHS since we got to see her beautiful face. Okay well she hid her face the entire ultrasound (again) so we really didn't get to see all of her face, but you get what I am saying. So first things first is the elephant in the room.Read More
My pregnancy has been nothing close to glamorous. The only "glow" I have gotten has been directly related to drenching my cheekbones with Champagne Pop highlighter. Out of the almost 8 months I've been pregnant I have had a total of maybe 3 weeks were I've thought to myself "Oh, I'm actually enjoying this right now". 3 weeks guys... out of 31.Read More
Hey Guys! I've gotten sooo many messages about this look since posting this picture on Valentines Day so I figured I'd share a few other images with yall! As you know I love maternity photos. I think pregnancy is such a beautiful thing and you should document every single minute.
Here are some quick maternity photos I was able to take when we got a really brief snow shower! Luckily this happened right on my 29 week mark! I still plan on doing a real life maternity shoot but not for another 4 weeks when my belly gets a little bit bigger!Read More
My husband had one request when it came to Adalyns mini nursery... "not a lot of pink". I told him that I wouldn't load it with pink and had planned on it being mermaid themed with some light blues and purples... and then uh... I bought a lot of pink. I really couldn't help it guys. I was so excited when I found out that we were having a girl! My dreams of mermaids and pink glitter were finally coming true!Read More
One of the common things you hear someone tell you when you mention you are pregnant is about how expensive babies are. It is undeniable, bringing a baby into this world, preparing for one, and providing for one definitely can break the bank.Read More
You know how in the movie Inception, they talk about being in limbo? I feel like we are currently in limbo. There is part of me that has no idea how we are 27 weeks already, but the other part of me that does the math and sees how much further we have to go, and feel like that's forever away.Read More
JUST A HEADS UP: Y'all, this post was obviously written light heartedly for humor purposes.
Sorry, I couldn't contain my excitement there. 25 weeks is a huge milestone for pregnancy because beginning at 25 weeks the baby has become developed enough that if for some unfortunate reason they came early, their survival rate in NICU begins getting higher and higher! This has been a week that I have been looking forward to sine becoming pregnant because now we are officially hitting the back end of pregnancy!Read More
I don't even know where to begin. Yesterday was a whirlwind of emotions and I found myself in bed (very early) feeling full of love. We had so many wonderful people reach out to both of us when we initially announced our pregnancy, and have also had so many people be amazingly supportive throughout the last 6 weeks, but yesterday was a whole new level.Read More
Husband asks ultrasound tech "It's still a boy right?" at the beginning of ultrasound
Flash forward to ultrasound tech spending the next hour on and off trying to find a wiener.
Ultrasound tech turns to husband and says "I think it's about time for you to prepare yourself..."Read More
We're 18 weeks y'all! Okay so technically I am writing this post 2 days early so I really am only 17 weeks 5 days but I hit 18 weeks on Thanksgiving and I know it'll be crazy that day, so I am getting the post done a little early.Read More
Oh man, have been looking forward to writing this post for quite some time now. If you've been following my pregnancy on the blog, then you know that I have not had a 1st trimester that resembles butterflies flying out of a unicorns ass while prancing through a flowery field. If anything it has been the complete opposite.Read More
This has felt like the longest week ever. My symptoms are pretty identical to what they have been the past couple weeks; puking, not eating, headaches, and craving fruit. I have "okay" days and then I have really bad days. There's really no in between. I am hoping that this gets at least a little better before thanksgiving because who doesn't want to stuff their face full of yummy thanksgiving foods?Read More
GUYS!!! I am jumping with joy today! In my previous post I mentioned our unexpected hospital trip we had to take. While we were there we had an ultrasound taken but I was unable to see any of the images and my husband really had no idea what he was looking at or looking for.Read More
This week... oh this week. Words cannot express how physically miserable this week has been. I stated in my previous post a funny comment I made to my doctor about how I would prefer a pregnancy with a lot of puking so that I knew I was developing a healthy baby... Guys... You have no idea how bad I wish I took that statement back now.Read More
