Family: Weeks 37-39… and into Week 40

and feeling… nervous/ready/excited/let’s do this.  Random thoughts/things that I’ve noticed: -The funk that I was in from weeks 37-38. A lot of things compounded, and I wasn’t feeling like myself at all. After 4 days of constant on and off crying, I gave the midwives a call. I talked to the midwives, Tom, and my…

Family: 36 week ultrasound + doula meeting

Friday was my last ultrasound appointment! Since we’re pretty confident that two kiddos is our max, I really tried to take some time to savor the screen and watching our baby move -who is currently smashed up in there, so it’s harder to determine what body part is which- and enjoy the experience.

Weeks 29-31

and feeling like I’m ready?! (Or at least as ready as I’ll ever be.) It’s weird because as much as I love being pregnant- even with the second pregnancy, which for me has hit faster and made me slower- every time I feel her kick, I just think “I want you to be here already.”…
