If you had asked me how many posts I made in June I would have guessed 3 or 4, but not one. Yet, I only posted once. I think about writing every day and every day there is something about my pregnancy journey or journey in my life that I want to share...I'm feeling sad … Continue reading What “Becoming Mother” Feels Like
Hey lovely mamas and mamas to be! I've been full on living life off the internet since I really kicked into baby prep gear as well as started the part time job I have. Working at a baby store has honestly been the smartest and most uplifting move I could have made in these last … Continue reading Preparing your Nursery in your Third Trimester
Whelp. I'm 29 weeks this week and it is feeling more and more real. A customer at work (baby store) yesterday was buying a gift for his new grandson, that showed up 10 weeks premature... that's basically how far along I am right now. The reality hit, that she could really show up any time. While … Continue reading 29 Weeks & Sugar Wars
...the tough get going... Hey Mommas, No, they don't get going as in they run away. They get the ball rolling. They take action. They get stuff going. I am coming to realize just how true this statement is. It's really easy to run and hide, it's really difficult to stay and work through a … Continue reading When the Going Gets Tough
26 weeks pregnant today and if I haven't already said this, my pregnancy is flying by. Absolutely flying by. Pregnancy changes: more indigestion, groin/abdomen muscle soreness, belly slowly growing more (i'm still able to fit into my low waist pants and all my shirts, but have switched over to loose, flowy pants for comfort, I … Continue reading Receiving Love and Support Can Be Hard

Starting that up again today as well as putting a daily reminder on my phone to tell me to get writing. (this is the "oops!" of … Continue reading Baby Registries, Yoga, and “Oops”s!
It's Monday: I'm officially 25 weeks along! 🙂 I removed the photo I put in yesterday's blog and decided to start fresh today and snap a picture this morning. After a short cardio session (15 minutes) on the exercise bike and some stretches and core work on the exercise ball, I'm up to 18 lbs … Continue reading 25 Weeks & The Law of Motivation
I almost didn't post today, but I gave myself ONE goal this week, to post each day, and goshdarnit, I will post every day. I'm constantly caught off guard by how UP I can feel one day (such as yesterday) and how DOWN I can feel another (such as today). What I'm realizing is that … Continue reading Dealing With Anger
Every Friday I say goodbye two days early to my "week" of pregnancy. I'm gearing up for week 25 in my mind already and this week has been filled with.. questions, calm, doubting, and peace. Overall there is peace. That's good. Overall there is joy. That's good. The cracks feel filled with fear. I … Continue reading Hey Life – Bring It On.
Short term goal: Post here every day until next Wednesday. My perfectionist type A personality wants to make a much more grand goal (every day until I give birth!!) but my reality knows that my anxiety, fear, or life often trainwrecks my grand goals. I'm setting small goals now and going to check posting here … Continue reading Small Goals, Long Term Results
