Since I started sharing about our use of essential oils I’ve been getting tons of questions about how to use them during pregnancy, labor and postpartum and with kids/babies. I’m working on another post with the later, but today I’m sharing all about how to use essential oils to support your pregnancy, postpartum and even […]
On Tuesday I hit 39 weeks and honestly thought this baby girl would be in my arms by now! For 2 weeks I’ve been 3cm dilated and my doctor said she could come “at any day” so I’ve been living anxiously since that appointment which feels like forever ago.
It’s been a while… and now that I’m 37 weeks and officially FULL TERM (crazy!!) I thought I’d share what could be my final pregnancy update for our bebe girl!
My hospital bags are OFFICIALLY packed and I feel so relieved! I’m so paranoid about this bebe girl coming early, I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get everything in order. I really trimmed down what I’m taking this time — not nearly as much postpartum stuff (i.e. practically nothing since the […]
I recently shared a peek at one of the freezer meals I made last weekend and so many people asked me to share the recipes that I wanted to get this post up ASAP! Today I’m sharing the recipes on my list to make and my strategy for trying to get organized for life with […]
I’m in full nesting mode and as I prepare our house for a new arrival my to-do list keeps growing with more and more things I think of that I want to do. I’m making progress but have only 6 weeks left to cross everything off, eek!
I’m a week behind with my pregnancy updates — and boy am I feeling pregnant. Catch up on how my pregnancy has been thus far! 30 Weeks // 28 Weeks // 24 Weeks // 20 Weeks // 1st Trimester HOW I’M FEELING: Tired and uncomfortable. I’ve been exhausted lately and admittedly have been taking on too much work but need to in […]
I’ve started to spend a lot of time thinking about giving birth again… I considered myself to be pretty educated on childbirth by the time I had Piper but there were still a few things that surprised me about the whole experience of giving birth in a hospital.
Having a healthy pregnancy is every expectant mother’s goal, right? One thing I was so surprised about with my first pregnancy was how educated my OB/GYN assumed I was.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost time for me to start packing my hospital bag, I was so excited to do this with my first pregnancy that I’m pretty sure I already had it done by now! I actually packed 3 bags – I’ll share more on what’s going in my bags this time in […]
I’ve been feeling overwhelmed as my due date becomes closer and closer — not to mention everything I want to accomplish before the holidays begin (shopping, decorating etc.)! The other night I took a few minutes to write out a big, long to-do list and felt so much better after doing so.
30 weeks feels like a HUGE milestone! And a very scary thought….labor is imminent, I actually have to push this child out and my to-do list is miles long. I’m trying to enjoy the last few weeks with Piper as she’s an only child and get all of my work done at the same time.
