About Us

My photo
The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

At my last Dr. appt she said he was head down. I have felt larger and rounder movements down low that I knew he was head down. Whenever I rub my upper belly and feel a lump I know it’s his foot so I press on it and he kicks me back. I can’t wait to touch his actual little baby feet!

This week I sorted through an abundance of clothes that we received from friends. This little boy is set on clothes for a while and I am so thankful. I also got two naps in. I have been sleeping really well and haven’t needed any naps yet but I will take them while I can.

7 months! I don’t feel 7 months at all. I’m feeling great. Sure I have some minor negative symptoms that come with pregnancy but I refuse to dwell on them. I’ve never felt more at peace with something going on in my life and I want to keep it that way. One funny side effect is that I find myself asking people to repeat themselves a lot. I hear what they are saying I’m just not listening to them the first time around. This is not like me at all but I find it hard to control. Is this part of “pregnancy/mom” brain?

We made some major progress on the nursery this week. In one afternoon we installed crown molding, assembled the crib and set up the dresser. We still have a little more to do before I share pictures.
Nesting is in full swing. Not only do I feel the need to get the nursery in order but I feel like my entire house needs organized. I’m having fun with it though and really enjoying this energy.

I had another Dr. Appt this week. This time was the glucose test. The drink really wasn’t that bad. The hardest part for me was drinking it in 5 minutes early in the morning. I was super full afterwards and then the sugar high kicked in. I understand why they do it; it just seems like a very unhealthy drink for a pregnant woman. I passed the test though.
I had a routine check up after that. His heart rate was 140 and after measuring and feeling my stomach she said he is growing just fine. We talked briefly about my birth plan and she said we will go over it thoroughly when it's closer. She told me she has had Bradley patients before so she knows the prep work I have gone through. I am feeling really confident about having her as my doctor. I am entering the third trimester and it is time to go to the doctor every 2 weeks!

August 30th.

This week was spent on our "babymoon" to Hilton Head Island. There isn't much to comment on for the week except that we did a lot of relaxing. I was so relaxed that baby slept through most of the vacation. Lot's of pictures for this week though. I like to wear dresses while on beach vacations!

In the next few weeks it's time to really start preparing for this baby to join us!
