March 2, 2016 No Comments

How Far along: 20 weeks! Half way there!
Weight gain: Still None
How many weeks to go: 20 weeks (well 19)
20160301_220230
Due date: July 9, 2016
Symptoms:   None really, except I’m hitting that, hungry all the time stage. Otherwise riding the 2nd trimester high
New updates: ITS A GIRL! So excited to add a little sister to our family. She looked great at our anatomy scan on Wednesday, everything is growing and developing right on track


Cravings: Cold Cereal, mainly Apple Jacks. Any fruit too, but pink lady apples have been hit the spot this week
20160220_084007
Aversions: Nothing particular. Strong smells still get me
Looking forward to: MommyCon this weekend!! So excited to have a toddler free day to connect with other mamas and learn new things!
Missing:  Sleeping on my back and picking up my little guy. It’s getting harder to carry him around, thankfully he is usually content with a hand hold or Daddy carrying him
Wedding Rings On/Off:  On
Belly button: In
Baby:  Size of a bok choy, about 10.5 in long and about 6 oz. Gender and reproductive organs are fully developed. She is practicing swallowing  and starting to curl up, as her arms and legs are getting longer. Starting to produce meconium and putting on fat!
Feeling: Good! Anxiety is under control and I’m pretty excited to have be having a daughter
Movement: Getting stronger! More kicks and jabs, instead of butterflies. It is also getting more consistent and I am feeling her move multiple times a day. Since week 21 started she has been moving like crazy!! I have been waiting for this part of pregnancy, it is my favorite!
Sleep: It is getting harder to get comfortable, but once I fall asleep, I sleep pretty hard.

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations
  • Date night with my favorite guy in my favorite booties. These seriously go with any outfit and they are so comfy! 
What's your favorite date night activity?

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
