Noa’s Birth Story

Just a heads up, this post has TMI and possibly triggers for some people. I went to bed On Friday September 13 feeling like my pregnancy was never going to end. This particular Friday the 13th just so happened to coincide with a full harvest moon that night as well. I fell asleep somewhere between […]

Bump Date Week 38

I can’t believe I’m writing this post right now. I was so sure that she would’ve been here by now! I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday where he told me that I am between 5-6cm dilated. I was seriously disappointed to hear that. I was so sure that I’d be at a seven again and […]

Bump Date Week 36

Its week 36 people! I am so ready to meet our baby girl! This week has been a little bit harder for me. My blood pressure is ever so slightly rising, week by week, and it is nearing the “high blood pressure” cut off of 140/90. So far my doctor doesn’t seem too concerned because […]

Bump Date Week 32

Its week 32! Baby girl is about 3 3/4 pounds and gaining half a pound a week now. She has nails and probably hair – we might get to see how much at our 3d ultrasound next week! She gets hiccups a lot and is still facing directly forward. She moves a lot, pushing her […]

Bump Date Week 30

A little late, but better than never. I had jury duty last week and that absolutely wore me out for two days. I had to take a recoup day Saturday and really didn’t accomplish much. I’ve been feeling really tired lately and back to the wanting to go to bed at 8pm thing. I get […]

Bump Date Weeks 27-29

Because we went on vacation, and had virtually no cell service, and because we just wanted to be in #vacaymode, I didn’t post any bump dates for the last two weeks. So I’m playing catch up this week! I’m officially 29 weeks pregnant this week and things have definitely felt like the third trimester is […]

Bump Date Week 20

We’re half way there!! Baby Girl is kicking and rolling so much lately its insane. There’s been this sudden increase in movement and her strength is crazy too. I can actually feel her rolling now, not just those fluttery kicks. Javier and I have both felt her from the outside now, and sometimes when I […]

Line Progression

Its no secret that I am addicted to pregnancy tests. When it is the only thing to keep the mind at ease when waiting for that first doctor’s appointment, you do what you gotta do. I’ve been testing almost daily – I did run out for a couple days and bought more – and my […]

Captain’s log day 2,229

Our household is finally on the mend. Well, Javier is still coughing, but I think it’s almost over. We had a weekend away planned for Javier’s birthday but we had a blizzard roll in instead. I was kinda sad that we didn’t get to go celebrate, but we had a great lazy weekend at home […]

Three week update

Amalia is three weeks old! She’s still doing great! She is starting to outgrow some of her newborn clothes. It depends on the brand, but I’ve noticed that her footless sleepers are getting short and my all time favorite tank top onsie is getting snug – insert cry face emoji here. Her hair is still […]
