Noa’s One Month Update

It has been a hectic couple of weeks at our house. I didn’t end up finding time to get Noa’s three week update written, so I’ll just write about the last two weeks in one! First off, we caught our second cold since Noa has been born, and unfortunately she caught it too. Its going […]

Noa’s Two Week Update

Noa is two weeks old already! I’ll say it till the end of time, this is going way too fast. She is growing and changing so much. She is already losing that newborn look. She outgrew preemie clothes already and newborn things are fitting her really well. She’s getting a little milk belly now too. […]

Noa’s One Week Update

Yesterday Noa turned one week old. Time is flying by, I just want her to stay this little forever. She is definitely coming out of that sleepy phase. Yesterday she was more alert when she was awake, and was awake for longer when she was up. She stayed up a teeny bit later last night […]

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 35

We’re 35 weeks in people! I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday where they told me that I’m between 1-2cm dilated, but not very effaced yet. I’ve lost 3lbs in the two weeks since my last appointment. My belly is definitely growing though, so its me that lost the weight and not baby. My blood pressure […]

Bump Date Week 33

Its week 33! I had my Ob appointment yesterday afternoon and had a little scare. My systolic blood pressure was in the 140s. They ended up re checking it before I left and it had dropped into the 130s, but that is still high for me. Pre pregnancy and in early pregnancy I usually run […]

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 31

Baby girl is 31 weeks in! This week has been pretty much the same. Heartburn is absolutely the worst symptom for me. It makes it so hard to eat because it seems like the second I swallow something, I get acid reflux. Laying down is hard. Finding something bland to eat is hard because I […]
