40+ weeks and all the old wives’ tales

Hi friends! We’re still here, haha.  Since I wasn’t sure how far the midwives would let me go before induction – the doctor who analyzed my ultrasounds for the VSD and baby’s size put in a recommendation for 39 weeks, which I declined- I’ve been trying out the old wives’ tales to encourage labor, including…

{Family} How workouts have changed: end of third trimester

We’re down to the last haul. I think? I hope. It’s definitely hit the point where I’m convinced I’m going to be pregnant forever. Thank you again for all of your wonderful comments on my last post. I really appreciate all of the kind words, sweet emails, virtual hugs and support. <3 It also made…

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…

Third Trimester Faves

Hi friends! Here we are at the end of the third trimester, and I feel like I’m waiting for a giant pot of water to boil. Every night when I get Braxton Hicks, I’m like, “IS THIS IT?!” and alas, it is not. Such a tease. No idea when the party will be starting, but…

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.”…

Ish just got real

Source I’ve been back at my mom’s house for a little while, but after spending some time laying on the couch curled into a ball and a delicious lunch out with the fam, I can finally post. Good news on all fronts: Centimeters dilated: 2 % effaced: 80 Next appointment: Tuesday Induction scheduled: Friday morning…

From this to that

Thank you so much for all of the sweet comments on the belly slideshow– it will be a fun thing to look back on. It’s amazing that the belly went from this:   to THIS:   and mad props to lululemon for stretching with me along the way. Yesterday was my original due date. I…

Belly up

Even though sleeping and walking have become daunting tasks in the past week, I’m trying to savor it as much as I possibly can. I’m going to miss the belly- especially the closeness I’ve felt to the baby for the past almost-10 months. Even when I’m missing the kicks and body rolls, it will be…

Pump it up

Lots of athletic events going down over here for a 40-week pregnant chica. Like a half marathon (or the one-hour walk that felt like one) and an intense swim   (aka the act of flipping from side-to-side whilst in the bathtub. The octopus thing is a thermometer so the water doesn’t get over 100*). You…

Press the pickle button

The “pickle button” is what the pilots call their weapons release button- the one that sends off all of the bombs. It’s also how they refer to their very pregnant wives, as in “no, she hasn’t pickled yet,” “she’s about to pickle,” etc. Nice, huh? (Christmas decorations, it’s so sad to pack you up) So…

12/30: Thoughts from the week

-I found it hilariously appropriate that this poster was hanging in the exam room for today’s midwife appointment. -My cervix is not a trampoline, but I have a little friend who seems to think otherwise. I’ll be walking along happily and KA-POW! It’s a feeling unlike any other- shocking, really. -I can fall asleep anywhere…

First date with a chiropractor

Yesterday was my first time seeing a chiropractor, since I’ve never had a need or desire to before, and for all of the reasons I discussed in this post. I was a little nervous about it, but was glad Tom could go with me… he always makes me feel a little braver. This chiropractor was…
