Here we go again

The Calm Before the Storm

by katherine on July 16, 2012

After last week’s appointment (and Rylee’s Saturday prediction) I was sure we’d be home from the hospital with Baby Sister here by now! But alas…it’s Monday afternoon and I am still very pregnant. Very. It’s like this crazy waiting game now. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate anticipation? I’m a planner. So this whole […]


Here We Go Again: Less than 2 weeks!

by katherine on July 13, 2012

How far along? 38, 3 days Total weight gain/loss: 33 lbs Stretch marks? Nothing new. Maternity Clothes: Neither of the shirts shown are maternity. Though I give no credit to the size of my belly. Sleep: Been consistent on the up only once to pee thing. There’s been a couple of nights I’ve straight up passed out in the […]


So the other night, Andy randomly said to me, “You know you’re the one talking to the kid about breastfeeding, right?” Of course, I nonchalantly replied, “of course…” When in actuality, in my head I was thinking, “Oh SHIT, you’re right! How did I not think about this before!?” Rylee is at that stage where […]


How far along? 36 weeks, 3 days Total weight gain/loss: +30 Stretch marks? Still with the one right over the top of where my belly-button ring used to be. Maternity Clothes: DOWN WITH PANTS! I’m officially on the anti-pants bandwagon…they are just plain not flattering or comfortable at this point. Save for one pair of capris, it’s all about […]


The Big Sister Bucket List

by katherine on June 27, 2012

With less than 4 weeks to go before Baby Sister will be making her appearance, we’ve been trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible lately with a certain 4 year old that is at just the right age to go do ALL! THE! FUN! THINGS! When I was newly-ish pregnant, we started thinking […]

{Not to be confused with wanderings…I’m not doing too much of any wandering lately} These days I catch myself in almost a trance-like state, day dreaming and wondering… What will labor be like this time?…What will she look like?…Will she look identical to her big sister the way my sisters and I look so much […]


Kind of over it.

by katherine on June 20, 2012

First of all, I know how much of a blessing it is to have a healthy, full term pregnancy and that not all women are able to carry full term. I really do. But let me tell you, God knew what.was.up when He designed women. You find out you’re pregnant and you’re so excited, it […]


Here We Go Again: June Update

by katherine on June 15, 2012

How far along? 34 weeks, 4 days Total weight gain/loss: +28 {Yep, another 5 pounds in 2 weeks. And that’s AFTER cutting out extra crap and upping my fruit & veggie intake. You know what that means? All the ice creams are belonging to ME!} Stretch marks? For all you haters mad that I haven’t got any…you’ll […]

Ahh yes…the name game. That seems to be the question/topic on everyone’s mind lately! I suppose that may be because we’re less than 60 days from go-time with this little girl steadily growing in my belly and we have yet to decide on a name. It’s killing me it’s taken us this long to figure […]


Here We Go Again: May Update, Part Deux

How far along? 32 weeks, 1 day Total weight gain/loss: +23 {Did you do the math on that one? Let me help you out…I gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks. FIVE POUNDS IN TWO WEEKS! I better tone it the heck down or the answer to my next question will no longer be ‘no’. And, clearly, […]
