Dealing with Gender Disappointment

I wrote this post the week I found out the gender of this baby. I wrote it without the intentions of publishing it. Then last night I sat at Gavin's boys only tumbling class and looked around. I was surrounded in a sea of adorable little girls in leotards. His class had only 6 boys in it but the building was filled with hundreds of little girls. It's a stadium set up and we sit on a platform … [Read more...]

Baby Names, Back Aches, and Third Trimester!

I feel like just yesterday I was coming here and announcing the fact I was preggers! Now I'm almost 29 weeks in and can't believe the end of this pregnancy journey is almost over. Both boys were born at 36 weeks. Johnny was determined to come and Gavin came for safety reasons because of his brothers determination. As of now they said they will let me go as far as 41 weeks before I'll have to have … [Read more...]

Another Undocumented Newborn {Pregnancy Update & Pic}

Why must we have to name our children? It is such a big responsibility and one that, well, is too much for me and my husband. You would think finding a name for a child should come easy but we just find it to be such a difficult process. We want names that aren't bouncing off the wall with uniqueness but at the same time aren't a dime a dozen. I grew up as a Jennifer in the 80's & 90's. There … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – 16 Foot Christmas Tree & 24 Week Prego Pic! #Linky

I can't believe what little time we have until Christmas is here. So much to do and such little time! Every Monday the boys and I go to my Dad's for dinner and my step-brother and his girlfriend generally join us up there as well. Last week we about fell over in awe when we saw that he managed to top last year's 14 foot tree with a SIXTEEN foot tree! Of course before I left my step mother … [Read more...]

The Baby Is A

I was never the girl who could wait patiently. When it came to finding out the gender of my pregnancies it was never even a consideration of waiting until the baby was born. I just couldn't do that and honestly I don't know how others can. The moment I found out I was pregnant the next question was I wonder what is it! The moment I was given the date of the gender ultrasound the countdown began. I … [Read more...]

Pregnancy Update: FOUR Months Baby! (pics too!) Plus, The Saga Continues…

On a day by day basis I feel like this pregnancy is going so slow. I'm not trying to rush it but while I was pretty sure I was feeling some fetal movement this week has been mute. My heart rate doppler is due in today and I can't wait until it does. Of course the reason it's so slow is because I'm focused on the gender ultrasound on November 10th. I cannot wait to find out if this is a boy or a … [Read more...]

Prenatal Products I’ve Recently Bought!

While this pregnancy may be my third but you'd think it was my first. I'm all over the place with my questions and I get nervous over every little thing. I'm sure that's every pregnant mama by nature but with my last pregnancy being over 5 years ago I swear at times my memory plays tricks on me. My bloggy buddy Amanda over at Mommy Mandy was telling me her love for this Sonoline B Fetal heart … [Read more...]

Pregnancy Update 14 Weeks! Dr. Vs. MidWife Update {Cough} Worst OB Visit Ever!

In the maternity clothes I look more like five months instead of three and a half. I think it's a boy. I know, I know. I want a girl so badly, bu … [Read more...]

Pregnancy: Having a Water Birth

Being pregnant there is just something that draws me to watching the 'Baby Show' on TLC. I know it's a horrible thing to do because it gets me all worked up and petrified about the fact that this baby has to come OUT of me at some point. Yes, I know I've already done it twice, and I've had both a vaginal birth and a c-section but the show definitely freaks me out. Of course once they have the … [Read more...]
