The Waiting Game: 39 Weeks Pregnant

Let me start off by saying that this baby has taught me to have patience, trust, and an open mind. Like many (if not all) new mothers, I started this pregnancy with little to no expectations. I knew some women got morning sickness while others didn’t. I knew some women truly enjoyed pregnancy while others…

I can’t believe I just ordered postpartum essentials for my hospital bag. My little man is going to be here before I know it, and it is blowing my mind. You would think my bowling ball of a stomach would make his imminent arrival feel more real, but I have gotten used to my body…

Coming Soon: The Greatest Gift

Growing up, I wasn’t the girl that fantasized about being a mother. Baby dolls weren’t really my thing, and I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of children. If I’m not mistaken, my now husband told me in the first year of our relationship (junior year of high school) that he wanted…
