Maternity Photo Shoot and Self Love

Maternity Photo Shoot and Self Love

Hi friends!

You might have seen my post a few of my maternity pics on my Facebook page recently.  You might have also seen a post about my previous pregnancy and how I avoided maternity pictures.  I actually avoided taking any pictures at all during my first pregnancy.

Preparing for Baby with P&G and Walmart

Preparing for Baby with P&G and Walmart

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart.

You guys!  I can’t believe we could literally meet our little guy any day now!   We are beyond excited to FINALLY grow our family.  It’s been a long road and we know the end result is going to be amazing!!!!

As we prepare to meet our little man, we’ve been making sure we’re all stocked up on all the major necessities.  Some that we didn’t have prior to The Love Nugget being born…

We learned pretty quickly after his arrival, to always expect the unexpected.  When we had The Love Nugget, we were new, unexperienced parents.  We didn’t know what clothes were best for him, what bottles to buy, or what diapers to use.  Diapers were one thing we didn’t really think were all that important.  I mean, of course we knew they were important to have, but we didn’t know the brand could make a difference.  I learned my lesson when The Love Nugget was about 6 weeks old and we were at a new mom meet up group.

We Have a Graduate!

We Have a Graduate!

They say it over and over again but you  never know how true it is until you are living it.  Time really does go by so fast when you have little ones.

It wasn’t all that long ago that this little guy was just starting preschool.  Now we have a graduate!

Hospital Bag Must Have’s for Mom

Hospital Bag Must Have’s for Mom

Hi there!

Less that four weeks!  I’m on the countdown and preparing little by little.  I’ve made a few freezer meals, the nursery is just about finished and little by little I’m packing my hospital bag.  I hope to have it complete by the end of this week.  You never know right!?!

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy humpday!

I’ve been loving Wednesday’s lately.  Half-way through another week of pregnancy!  Definitely on the count down these days.  Just about 4 weeks left!  Crazy right!?!  For some reason I have a feeling he’ll be arriving a week before but knowing my luck that won’t happen….  I’m keeping my fingers crossed though!

Anyway, since it’s Wednesday I thought I’d share a day of eats for a WIAW round-up.  I don’t do these all that often these days but they are fun to do every once in awhile.  So here’s a look of eats from the other day 🙂

Breakfast – The Hubby was home so made some eggs and sausage but all I wanted was a smoothie bowl.

Third Trimester Must Haves

Third Trimester Must Haves

Good morning!

I can’t believe I’m nearing the end!  I’m anxious, excited and ready to get this busy little guy out of my belly! The past few weeks have seemed extra tiring.  I know they say exhaustion returns in the third trimester but I don’t remember it being this exhausting with The Love Nugget.  Maybe it’s because I’m so much older 😉

As I did with the first and second trimester, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve found helpful and/or necessary during this final trimester.

Fear Free Childbirth and Growth Spurt!

Fear Free Childbirth and Growth Spurt!

Hi there!

How is your week going?  I must say I’m happy it’s already Wednesday.  Only three more days left in the week for another week down.  We’re obviously on the count down to baby arriving.  It’s funny with The Love Nugget I was so nervous those last few weeks and honestly a bit stressed about how everything would go.  I think a lot of it was that it was my first and a lot was that I was also leaving my class for the final month of the school year to someone else.  After spending a year helping them grow it was hard to let them go.

This time I’m feeling a lot less stressed about labor itself.  Even though it’s been so long and I never went into labor on my own.  As I’ve mentioned before, I was induced at 42 weeks and after getting pitocin went from a 0-10 with pain in 20 minutes.  I got my epidural soon after then a few hours later The Love Nugget was born.

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

Hi there!

Baby number two is getting closer to making his arrival.  I’ve still got two months left, hopefully no more, but I’m feeling anxious to meet our little guy!  As we approach that arrival date, I’ve begun thinking about things we did with The Love Nugget and what I want to do with our newest member to our family.
