Pregnancy Bumpdate – Week Seven


Want in on a little secret?

What you might think looks like a little bedhead in the last couple photos…well it actually is. Technically couchhead if you want to be accurate – I’ve been napping like crazy. I feel so exhausted!

This week was pretty good, our toddler was sick so that took a lot of focus and time. I’ve noticed I’m definitely feeling queasy at times and it’s quite exciting. I didn’t feel nauseous at all last pregnancy which in hindsight was probably a big clue.

We are dreading Papa leaving until June this week! Little bird definitely has no idea what’s happening but I do, and I am not impressed. It’s hard to complain because he hasn’t really had to be away for quite a while, I figure we are due by now!

I have lots of bloodwork booked, and an ultrasound a week from today. We also found out that my 20wk ultrasound is booked for Kev’s birthday in June!

Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Pregnancy Bumpdate – Week Six


Six weeks along!

I find these early weeks are long and stressful this time around. I remember before Christmas, I was six weeks pregnant, and doing Christmas shopping at the mall. I bought myself a lotion from Bath & Body Works called ‘Sweet Pea’ just because that was how big the baby would’ve been. It’s bittersweet to be doing it all over again.

I have been having cramps which is pretty normal but makes me anxious. I feel worried even when I’m trying to be optimistic! Talking about due dates and delivery and maternity leave all seems like a big ‘if’ right now..

I’m super thankful for work right now – not only does it keep me busy (mentally & physically) for 12hrs at a time, but my job is amazing. 

Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Pregnancy Bumpdate – Week Five


Time to start these weekly updates again!

Kev & I found out on March 7th that we are expecting another baby! I had my  first prenatal appointment that same day and then some bloodwork the next. So far everything seems to be as it should be, and there is nothing I could/should do differently! I have an early ultrasound booked so we are keeping our fingers crossed!

Right now, we are just trying to stay thankful for this rainbow baby 🌈💛

I Won’t Let Go – Rascal Flatts
It’s like a storm

That cuts a path

It’s breaks your will

It feels like that
You think you’re lost

But your not lost on your own

You’re not alone
I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

If you can’t cope

I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won’t let go
It hurts my heart

To see you cry

I know it’s dark

This part of life

Oh it finds us all (finds us all)

And we’re too small

To stop the rain

Oh but when it rains
I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

And you can’t cope

I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won’t let you fall
Don’t be afraid to fall

I’m right here to catch you

I won’t let you down

It won’t get you down

You’re gonna make it

Yeah I know you can make it
‘Cause I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

And you can’t cope

And I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won’t let go

Oh I’m gonna hold you

And I won’t let go

Won’t let you go

No I won’t

Valentine’s Day Prep

There are only five days until the big holiday – Valentine’s Day.

*snorts*

I know there are people who love celebrating Valentine’s Day – with their family, loved ones, kids..

But that’s just not me.

Kevin and I have rarely done anything beyond cards & flowers and even that seems a little routine by now. But I’ve noticed a lot of really great Valentine’s Day traditions/ideas online lately and it had me feeling a little guilty for not showing baby bird that there is more to this holiday than candy and flowers.

So today we did some crafts together and I picked her up an outfit just for her, for her daycare party. We filled out little valentines for her friends and she may or may not have enjoyed one heart-shaped lollipop.

I picked up gifts for her and her cousins (but I can’t post them yet!).
I’m planning to write her a little note on big pink heart to stick in her room too!
