Three week update!

Seriously, can time just slow down a little bit?! This has gone by way too fast! Ivan had his appointment on Friday and he weighed 7lb6oz and was 19.5 inches. Growing like a weed, probably because he eats all the time! His cheeks are getting chunkier and his little tummy is too! He still grins […]

Bump day week 37!

We are so close to the end! I had an NST on Monday and baby brother weighed about 5lb 6oz. My doctor’s appointment went really well yesterday. I brought in my birth plan and we talked it over. My doctor said that there wasn’t anything unreasonable in it and that he felt like we would […]

Labor Watch Part 2

I just wanted to jot down a couple things for my own future reference. So this is going to be TMI, just a little heads up if you want to stop reading, I’d do it now. This past week, daily, I have had pain right under my shoulder blade where my ribs meet my spine. […]

Bump day week 36!

Hello cankles! This week I have started getting swollen ankles by the days end. It isn’t too bad yet but I do notice it. My back is also bothering me a little bit more as it is really starting to curve back. I have been drinking lots of water to try and keep hydrated and […]

Labor Watch Part 1

Yep, you read that title right. Yesterday I went to the bathroom as part of my morning ritual and saw that I had lost a large piece of brown mucus plug. About the size of my thumb from the first knuckle. I had some BH contractions that eventually got to 3 minutes apart and were […]

Bump day week 35!

So I am going to start this post out for apologizing for what you are about to read. I am going to dump my stress and feelings here and I hope that it doesn’t make this an awful post to read. Today has just been a long day and I am so ready to go […]

Bump day week 34!

My baby boy is the size of a melon at 4 and 3/4 pounds! He is still pretty active for as crowded as we are getting. I seem to have lost my appetite this week and I don’t really want to eat anything. There are days when I have to make myself pick something from […]

Bump day week 33!

Only 48 days(ish) to go! Baby brother is starting to run out of room in there. I had my NST Monday and it went smoothly; still no dilation but regular Braxton Hicks. I saw the nurse practitioner at my appointment Wednesday and she said that baby is passing his tests with flying colors so they […]

What’s In My Diaper Bag?

In my honest opinion, I don’t think you need much of anything for baby when you go to the hospital. The hospital/birthing center will usually provide you with everything that you need to get through those couple days that you stay. Diapers, wipes, formula (if you choose), binkie, a swaddle and even a little onsie. […]

Bump day week 32!

This week has been another pretty average week. My second NST went much more smoothly and I was in and out in just over an hour. I even waited for a room because OB was busy. They didn’t do any extra testing even though my contractions were still consistent. I am really anxious to hear […]
