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
Let me start this off by saying it’s pretty interesting to be writing these updates while the world is still in the dark about the fact that I’m pregnant. For my last pregnancy, I announced publicly and then started writing about my journey here on this blog shortly afterwards. This time around, I think I’ll be closer to half way when I announce things. Perhaps Father’s Day when I’m exactly 20 weeks and know the gender already is when I’ll make it all known. We’ll see what happens because so much is up in the air about what life will be like in the world during that time.Continue reading
Boy, have I got a lot to fill you in on. Since this is the first update, I’d like to recap my first trimester. It’s been a doozy. As much as I’d hoped for a symptom free pregnancy, I didn’t get it. However, I know this isn’t forever and that I’ll get through it just like my first pregnancy that took me for a wild ride. Continue reading
So, I guess we’re embarking on a new journey and sometimes it’s still hard to believe that I’m pregnant with baby number two. There are so many emotions that flew through my mind on February 27th as I saw the positive line show up after I peed on a pregnancy test. Let’s rewind a little bit so I can take you through the process of even getting to this point. Continue reading
In this episode of “It’s Only Reality”, I discuss the traumatic experience of going through a miscarriage. October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and October 15th is Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day. If you’ve lost a child due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, or neonatal loss, or if you know someone who has, I offer my deepest condolences. Continue reading
