I was so excited to call Tom –who was working/flying all night last night- and tell him that I was…

What’s going down

I feel like every post from now on could start like the following… “Still waiting! So ready and so excited. Any day now!” That would get old pretty quickly. So instead.. let me tell you about a dream I had the other night. (38 weeks! Belly has definitely dropped a little lower.. drop it low,…

It finally came up

Changes have been greater than constants since I started the blog, which can be expected since life is a cyclical thing and I’ve been blogging for 3 1/2 years. We’re also a military family which definitely comes with an abundance of surprises. That’s why I wasn’t too surprised when this finally came up last night:…

Our last class

Tuesday nights are going to feel so different without grabbing our pillows, handbook, dinner to-go and heading to Bradley class together. Before we started classes, we both knew bits and pieces about labor and childbirth, but no idea of what the whole picture could look like from start to finish. To be real, I didn’t…

Full term

Last night, Bella would not get off my belly no matter how many times you kicked her. Maybe she already knows that you’re going to be best friends, just like she knew you were there before I did. Your room is (pretty much) ready, your clothes and bedding are washed, just waiting for you. I’m…

7 preg must-haves

I’d been waiting to write this post until the end of my pregnancy, and before I knew it, here I am. Just shy of 37 weeks, baby will be full-term this week, and can make her arrival whenever she’s ready! It’s usually more common for first-time moms to have a longer pregnancy, but my stepmom…

Nursery Fail

I was excited to get the nursery officially finished this weekend, but it looks like it may have to wait a while longer. Most of the time, online shopping is a major win (shopping in PJs and delivered to my door- what’s not to love?) but this time, it was a little bit of a…

Notes from the week: 12/9

Walking has become progressively more difficult every day. Climbing up the stairs, I clutch on for dear life and use the the stair rail to propel myself upwards. When I reach the top, I usually need to take a little break. If I forget something downstairs, it will usually stay there, or I’ll ask Tom…

36 weeks

and feeling… good. (Random: the Pilot recently found a video on his old computer of my friend and I doing our pointe dance to that song. It was one of my faves) Is there some kind of pre-labor euphoria that hits? If so, maybe that’s what’s going on. Even though my hips still hurt like…

How my workouts have changed- 3rd trimester

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “O.” Thank you Oprah, for entertaining me as I walked around the indoor base track for an hour. The looks I’ve been getting at the base gym during my workouts have recently changed from “wow, I’m kind of impressed that girl is doing push-ups on a…

TV Philosophy

I’m not a huge TV person. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my Kardashians and Project Runway, but besides having the television on CNN most of the day, I don’t actively watch it very often. We always agreed not to have a TV in our bedroom –it disturbs the peaceful vibe and a distraction from..…
