I wrote this post over a year ago (about two weeks before I had Oliver) and never posted it! Well, better late than never and these are memories I want to hold on to!
The exhaustion has come back full force. By 5:00 I feel like I have been up for days. I usually take a nap after coming home and am ready for bed a few hours later.
Braxton hicks are back too. I had some hardcore ones at Target last weekend. I had to hang onto the cart to get through a few of them.
I ended up in the hospital over Christmas because of some bleeding. Bleeding is never a good sign during pregnancy and I was so terrified something was wrong. Kevin gave me a blessing that everything was going to be alright and the baby started kicking immediately after. The nurses hooked me up to a bunch of devices to monitor his heartbeat and contractions. (Thankfully I wasn’t having any) He didn’t seem to be a fan of all the devices on my belly and kept kicking them. My ultrasound came back normal with no issues to my placenta. I have had a little bleeding since then and am just trying to take it as easy as possible.
Also, moving during pregnancy is so hard. A week before our trip to California we found out we had to move. Our manager was planning on selling the place and wanted us out as soon as possible. We were blessed with awesome ward members and friends that helped us move and clean.
Usually Kevin and I aren’t ones to ask for help with those types of things, but with our hospital scare, I was trying to take it as easy as I could.
BABY IS THE SIZE OF: A papaya!
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I have a few pairs of maternity jeans and tops, but I don’t like spending a lot on money on clothes that will only fit for a few months. I basically go between my few maternity tops and any other shirt I can squeeze into. Also, sweatpants are my BFF.
NESTING: Yes, finally! We moved a month ago and I have been trying real hard to get the new place clean and organized. The nursery room is almost done and it is so cute! I just need to hang a few photos. All of his clothes are washed and put away. Next I need to work on the hospital and diaper bag!
SLEEP: It depends on the night. I usually wakeup quite a few times needing to use the bathroom and then struggle to fall back asleep.
WEIGHT GAIN: 17 pounds. Baby boy keeps growing!
Now that I’m less than a month out from my due date, I figured it was about time to write about finding out I was pregnant. At this point, it’s more for me to remember than anything else. So I’m sorry for the length of this post! Towards the end of April I went through […]
It has been so hard to get back to real life after spending Christmas in California. Here’s a small recap of Christmas 2017. Kevin’s Birthday Kevin and my birthday’s are two days apart and happen to be super close to Christmas. We actually arrived to California on his birthday and were able to spend it […]
Outfit Details: RUFFLE TOP || BOOTIES || Ruffle Tees This top just hit the shop and I am overly obsessed with it! I think it might be my favorite shirt we’ve ever carried. Thankfully, it has spandex in it so I was able to fit it over my (growing) bump. But seriously, one of the […]
I am officially over halfway through this pregnant! I can’t believe it! Right now I am in the middle of compiling everything from this pregnancy into a future post. How we found out I was pregnant again, surviving the first trimester (shudder), symptoms, and all that fun stuff… but for now, here is everything happening […]
It’s been a hot minute since I blogged, but I couldn’t resist talking about this top that just hit the shop. It’s one of my favorite tops that we’ve ever had on the site. This summer, I have been gravitating towards white and blue tones and this top has it all! The white linen material, […]
Ever since I was little, I couldn’t wait to be a mom. Cliche? Maybe. I started practicing my mom skills to my baby brother when I was still a baby myself. When I was eight, one of my favorite aunts had her first baby. I was more than ready to pitch in with diaper changes […]
Outfit Details: BLACK SKIRT || ROSE GOLD TENNIS SHOES || METALLIC TOP || EMBROIDERED LEATHER JACKET || So by now you probably have noticed my absolute obsession with metallic sneakers. I blame it on the fact that I hardly ever wore tennis shoes growing up, so now I’m making up for lost time. I seriously […]
Outfit Details: SKIRT || BOOTIES || HAT || Everyone needs a skirt in their closet that can be styled to fit every occasion. This skirt does that for me. It is the perfect length, non sheer, has the cutest button detailing, elastic waist… need I say more? This skirt is one of my wardrobe essentials. […]
Today is Friday! I am so happy! Does anyone else look super nice at the beginning of the week and it just goes down hill from there? I’m talking no makeup, unwashed and / or unbrushed hair, two day old socks on, etc. Weekdays are rough. I was in 5th grade when I first realized […]
