Heavy. I feel this in so many ways. I don’t remember exactly how I felt this time last pregnancy. There’s a term I heard called “motherhood amnesia” that (conveniently) makes you forget the pain and stress that comes with pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the first few months after birth that we like to call the “fourth trimester”.Continue reading

Hello, my darlings. First off, thank you for sticking around for so many weeks. There have been a lot of updates, but I wouldn’t say they’ve been super interesting unless you really care about pregnancy. So, I salute those who visit each post and take time to leave love here on this site or throughout my different social media platforms.Continue reading
Hola amigos! It’s been a rollercoaster since we last “talked”. Man, right after walking into my third trimester I felt like I was hit with a ton of bricks. I honestly don’t remember the transition from second trimester to third in my first pregnancy so I can’t tell if this is common for me. I know it’s common according to all the research I’ve done and the “What To Expect” community posts I’ve seen from other mamas.Continue reading
As much as I’d like to post photos of myself dressed in actual clothes with my hair combed, the reality of the situation is that I look like this a large majority of the time. There are several influencers that I keep up with online that are also pregnant right now, and I truly wonder how they keep posting cute photos consistently for social media.Continue reading
I cannot believe I’m only about three months away from birthing this child! It’s crazy how long ago it seems that I found out I was pregnant, but then the countdown once I hit the halfway mark has been going at lightning speed. I remember being around this point with Petra in the womb and still having so much to do to prepare for her arrival. It’s the same this time around. One day I feel like I have all the time in the world, and the next day I’m like “Oh! I guess I better be looking up car seats and strollers!”Continue reading
I feel like I can finally breath easy. It’s been pretty nonstop the past few weeks with getting back into the swing of things since traveling, having an ultrasound, booking my first official prenatal appointment, and filming and posting our gender reveal. If you somehow missed it, we are having a BOY!!!Continue reading
Hello from California!
We just got back from our East Coast trip, and it’s been taking a little time to adjust and get back in the groove of daily life. Going out of town for three weeks is probably the longest we’ve been away from home. I don’t know about you, but the longer I’m away from “normal”, the more difficult it is to get my head back into all the things I was in the middle of doing.Continue reading
Hello again! I hope you’re doing great today. Thanks for stopping by to read the bloggy blog.
So much has happened since my last post. The pictures above are actually from when I was 19 weeks and one day. You’ll notice the dress and location because this is the same day I filmed our announcement video. I haven’t even edited it yet, but if you’re reading this it means everything has gone public!Continue reading
Welcome to another crazy day in 2020. I thought going through a pandemic was going to be the highlight of the big events happening during my pregnancy, but last week was one for the history books as well. I see so many memes about how in the future, huge lessons will be taught in schools about how much the world changed this year. I think they’re right.Continue reading
Hello, boys and girls!
It’s week 16, and this is when I started documenting my last pregnancy because I had finally started showing. I definitely think my belly has grown since the last post I uploaded here. If it’s anything like last time, this is the part where I start to see big changes from week to week. Continue reading
