• Bumpdate #5: 39 Weeks!

    How far along: 39 weeks! Due Date: May 25th Baby is the size of: Watermelon Gender: Girl Name: Olivia Ronnie Symptoms: ALL. Swelling, no sleep, constant peeing, shortness of breath, overall discomfort. Movement: This little girl loves to move around, even in her tight quarters. It feels very weird when she moves now, just because she takes up so much of my stomach.

    Bumpdate #4 & Random Pregnancy Thoughts: 32 Weeks

    Well, it’s been over 10 weeks since my last bump date. I’m at such a crossroads with blogging right now. Obviously pregnancy is a huge part of my life now and I want to document that, but I also feel like I want to share other things….but I don’t know what those other things are.

Pregnancy is so weird. You’re expected…

  • Bump Date #2 – 18 Weeks

    It sort of feels like we have been inching our ways towards each Friday in order to check another week off the countdown. Maybe it’s going really slow because we found out super early (4.5 weeks) or because I was so sick? Who knows, maybe by the third trimester it will seem like it’s going faster? How far along: 18 weeks! It was a busy week for the bump 😀  Due Date: May 25th Baby is the size of: Sweet potato Gender: GIRL! Name: She officially has a name and we are telling our families over Christmas. I am especially excited because this name holds so much meaning to us.…
