Pregnancy Journal: 34-37 weeks pregnant with baby #2
Whew! So much has happened in the past few weeks, so I decided to condense everything into one Pregnancy Journal update. Between my boys all leaving for TX, having my beautiful baby shower and having appointments weekly, there’s a lot to cover! Thank you for joining me here on my second pregnancy journey. Interested in...

Pregnancy Journal: 33 weeks with baby #2

Pregnancy Journal: 33 weeks with baby #2
Nearly 3 weeks ago now, I was prepared to sit down, and excitedly write a 30 week update, exclaiming how it’s the final countdown! Thirty (long) weeks of pregnancy had passed, and I seriously couldn’t believe that there were less than 70 days until our precious baby girl would make her entrance into the world....

Pregnancy Journal: 27 weeks with baby #2

Pregnancy Journal: 27 weeks with baby #2
Here we are, 27 weeks pregnant, officially in my third trimester, in the 7th month, and am left with only 80-something days until the big day, but in case she comes early, my baby girl is viable for life-saving treatment. Plus, I’m only 60-something days from being full term. That’s a LOT! I’m left feeling excited...

Pregnancy Journal: 20 weeks pregnant with baby #2

Pregnancy Journal: 20 weeks pregnant with baby #2
How is it even possible that I’m in the middle of my 5th month of pregnancy already??? That’s right folks. I’ve made it to 20 weeks. I’m at that half way point, the hump, the middle, the “almost there, but not quite at all,” place, and it feels like it happened really fast. But in...

Pregnancy Journal: 17 weeks pregnant with Baby #2

Pregnancy Journal: 17 weeks pregnant with Baby #2
I cant believe Baby and I are already at 17 weeks! That’s almost HALF WAY! Actually, while I’m writing this, I’m ALMOST 18 weeks, and this post may not even go up until then… Whoops. It’s funny since sometimes I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever, and I clearly haven’t been. It just seems that some...

Pregnancy Journal: 14 weeks pregnant with baby #2 & Disney World

Pregnancy Journal: 14 weeks pregnant with baby #2 & Disney World
Week 14 of this pregnancy has FLOWN by at the speed of light, mostly because we took a week-long family vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL! Oh my gosh, what a magical experience. Now, I’ve been to Disney several times, more times than I can count, as a child. We’d go every year,...

The cat’s out of the bag! 1st Bumpdate: 1st Trimester
For the past several weeks, I’ve been holding in a huge secret. I’m talking BIG. I’m not a fan of secrets to begin with. Well, the cat’s out of the bag now, thank GOD. It is with great excitement that I am able to say, our little family is getting a little bigger! That’s right....

Baby Journal | Week 1: Baby Jack is here & My Labor Story

Baby Journal | Week 1: Baby Jack is here & My Labor Story
I’m in a lot of pain. Like, a LOT. From no sleep to my cracked, dry and bleeding breasts, to my stitched up lady-parts, to my back spasms to my stomach cramps, it’s safe to say that the past few days have seen a constant battle between me and my body. But you know what?...

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 38

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 38
Hey everyone! So, I’m full term and ready to pop. Seriously. Seriously ready to pop. I feel so impatient and so huge right now. C’mon, Baby Jack! C’mon out! We’re all so ready to see you! NOW! Like… NOW! In fact, we almost got to see him this past week! Well, I should say that...

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 35

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 35
How crazy is this??? It’s the final count down, you guys! As of today, I am 30 days away from Baby Jack’s due date of March 28th, 2015. THIRTY. DAYS. I’m pretty much in a state of disbelief, but at the same time, sheer excitement floods my body when I think about it. In roughly...
