There was no doubt in my mind that having a baby wasn’t going to be easy. The funny part is Ellie is an easy baby. She is so good, so happy, so sweet and perfect. I truly feel so lucky. The hardest part, honestly, was me. Now don’t get me Read more →

HDBD Week 36

This is me, every day. Hardest part of my day by far.

36 weeks. I have survived to tick off another week on my shirt. Baby is still cooking nicely regardless of how I feel. Just taking things one day at a time. After the fiasco that was two very confusing back to back appointments last week, I ended up at the Read more →

Well, it’s Monday and I am officially staring down my first full week being out of work. Time is going to be coming to screeching halt for me at this point. I’m 36 weeks pregnant, anxious to meet baby, supposed to be keeping my activity levels to a minimum at Read more →

It seems as though I may only have a few of these updates left at this point. In reality I could have another 5-7 of them, but it’s looking less likely I will make it to December. Maybe. Supposedly. First thing’s first, an update from last week’s appointment. I packed Read more →

The light at the end of the tunnel, I see it. I need it. Basically every person at work stops me in the hallways to tell me I look tired, swollen, uncomfortable, in pain, am waddling, am walking so slow and awkwardly, insert anything about how shitty I look. I’ve Read more →

HDBD Week 33

Pouty face in pouty. She is not a fan of ultrasounds. Good news for her, only one left!

C’mon time, move faster please. After this week I only have three more weeks of work left. I am looking forward to being off my feet so much. By the end of the day at school I am so sore. My hips, my back, my tailbone, hell even my bump starts Read more →

Another Week Down

20151012_083125

Another day back to the grind. Another Monday. Considering I only worked three days last week it felt like an eternity. Monday I was off for Columbus Day. I managed to get to the gym in the morning and do two miles on the elliptical.  I used to be very Read more →

HDBD Week 32

32 weeks. Ehhhhh. Do I really have eight more weeks left? How long is eternity? Eight weeks? That’s what I thought. Baby size- I’ll find out for sure on Friday, but she should be over four pounds by now, my little bok choy. My size- I finally gained a few Read more →

Long Weeks and Little Workouts

Oh hey! There's my feet. I don't see them very much anymore.

Whew, last week was long and difficult. School and life are tiring and overwhelming right now. I feel like I need a a full weekend to just lay in my bed and not get out of it so I can decompress. I’m sure it’s all made more difficult than it Read more →

HDBD Week 31

Oh look, I actually wrote a post. I have been so busy and so stressed lately that I’m just feeling very done with everything right now. If I could have just one full day where I don’t put on pants or leave my bed the entire day I think I’d Read more →
