Wesley’s birth story

Wow, what an experience. This baby boy gave me such a different pregnancy that was overall much easier. I didn’t have any of the complications to deal with from the other two. I had morning sickness pretty good but that’s to be expected lol. Honestly, the whole pregnancy up to 37 weeks FLEW by. Well,… [Read More]

37-40 weeks

10/9 -37w1d – Today is how far along I was with Ava when I went into labor at about 9am. Feeling nothing really so far with baby boy, so thinking he won’t be the same. But also can’t help but think I’ve been measuring “ahead” this whole pregnancy, so I’m pretty much ready for him… [Read More]

31-36 weeks

31 weeks 32 weeks 9/15 – happy Friday!! I am 33 weeks, and while I thought I was going strong with sleeping solidly, it ended abruptly this week. I only make it maybe 4 hours at a time before I am too sore on my hip and need to adjust or use the bathroom. And… [Read More]

13-18 weeks

I didn’t write any notes for 13 weeks, but I did start my weekly pictures. By this point my nausea was just lifting (hallelujah!) and we knew the gender. (!!!) I let Milly write my chalkboard for this week. baby was the size of a lemon. I just adore the “I love u baby”. April… [Read More]

Here Comes the Son

In early September of last year, we had my baby shower. It was “here comes the son” themed and so much fun to put together. It was a pretty warm day, so we had a large tent set up in my parent’s backyard. We had tea bags and honey sticks for favors and some simple… [Read More]

Baby #3

I love looking back at my pregnancies on this blog, so I have to post about pregnancy #3. 2023 was the year I carried my third baby – what a blessing! For this pregnancy, I didn’t fill out the weekly questionnaires. Instead I tried (emphasis on tried lol) to jot down notes / thoughts throughout…. [Read More]

Milly’s 3rd Birthday: sundae funday

We really lucked out with Milly’s birthday last year. We wanted to celebrate her with a party and with the weirdness of the times, thought we should have it outside. Her birthday is usually one of the last weekends before it turns VERY cold outside so it was definitely a gamble. But, it ended up… [Read More]

Sorry husband, you with your July birthday… ;) So of course, Ava was born September 26th, about 3 weeks early. Started my… [Read More]
