100 days to go!

Hello everyone.  Wow,that seems a lot faster than I realized it was going to be.  Today I am 100 days away from my due date.  What a beautiful thing. YAY!!!!!


This pregnancy has been pretty good, but definitely different from when I was expecting baby A.  Baby A. seemed to give me a respite from morning sickness about week 12 or 13 if I remember correctly.  This baby didn't let me feel relief until 16 weeks.  It was horrid.  Now I only seem to get sick if I don't eat as much as I should.

I've been getting Braxton Hicks contractions since right about 20 weeks and those jokers can be uncomfortable.  I have also been dealing with back pain, but I am still looking forward to being a mommy again.

Let's hear it for 100 days.  Who else is about to hit double digits soon?

WEEK 20:  20-27 March 2019/ Week 21:  27 March-3 April 2019
Hi everyone!  Apologies for missing last week.  With so many of the family sick and so much running around to be done, it was kind of crazy.  Last week, I reached the half way point in this pregnancy!  Yay!  I took advantage of it by walking with the family at the zoo and then nursing family back to health.  This week, I'm still working on getting baby A. back to 100%, but everything is pretty good to go.

12 Things I Didn't Do With Pregnancy #2 That I'm Definitely Doing This Time



I realize that ever pregnancy is different and maybe that’s why I bowed out of doing so many of the fun things that people get to do with their pregnancies.  This time around though, I’m all for cute and fun and sentimental.  Here are a few things I didn’t do with my last pregnancy that I’m definitely doing this time.

Dressing My Bump: Embracing Maternity Fashion for Pregnancy #3

(NOT an Affiliate post)
Okay, I’ll be honest here. When I was expecting baby A., I wasn’t exactly a fashion maven. Most of my maternity clothes came from graciously donated and loved maternity wear from co-workers and family members. There were functional pieces in there and even some beautiful dresses, but I still didn’t really have a maternity wear flow. Since I was more interested with comfort than fashion, I kind of allowed my wardrobe to diminish. Even a supervisor commented how he missed the business suits and flair I was known for when I became pregnant. I felt no insult because so did I. When I confirmed that S. and I were expecting this baby, I made a decision that I was going to find cute, functional, and budget friendly maternity pieces that would flatter my bump and keep my moods high. Thankfully, the Internet is filled with great suggestions and I’ve been having a great time sensibly stocking up!

WEEK 18:  7-13 March 2019
Hello everyone!  It's been a productive week though very busy.  The sun has come out a few days and the temperatures have been such that the littles have been able to run around outside for a while.  Daylight savings time definitely kicked my butt this week and S. and I kind of announced our pregnancy on social media.  Here's this week's preggo update!  Hope you enjoy!

Weekend Recap: Our Top 5


Friday afternoon, I picked Bug up from school a few minutes before dismissal so that he could get a hair cut.  His hair grows so fast, so he was definitely overdue.  I love out barber.  He's a family friend who has an amazing rapport with kids and adults alike.  The last time he cut Bug's hair, Bug promised him that he'd bring him a baked good that he cooked from the Raddish club.  He bought him a full plate and they were pretty yummy.  Bug walked out with a nice haircut and we enjoyed some Mommy Son time in the car.

PREGNANCY WEEK 12- January 30, 2019 (24-30 Jan 2019)
What a week! The weather on Tuesday was interesting as it was a cold, wet, and rainy day that turned to snow during the evening commute.  I'd planned for the occasion and had soup in the crock pot waiting for us to come home. There is something SO awesome about coming home to a warm and fragrant meal on a cold winter day. I'm told more weather is coming.  I better start checking my crock pot recipes for sure.
