Hayley Anne’s Birth Story

Two months later…This is probably one of my favorite posts to write. I have a lot to say so bare with me. I’ll just spoil it a little bit, I chose to get induced. When I mentioned that I wanted to get my membranes swept I got a lot of replies asking why or stating that I should just trust my body and other comments/questions eluding to that.

Four Week Postpartum Check-in

This past week has been an absolute hot mess. The true definition of parenting fails…or maybe I was winning the whole time and just didn’t know it? As each week passes we get more and more comfortable in our new routine but at the same time we get more and more uncomfortable with our new routine.

HI FRIENDS! Clearly I’m excited to be back writing. I’ve missed it a little bit. I’m starting a new series here. My pregnancy posts were some of my most popular posts in the last few months.

Week 38 – Pregnancy Update – Baby Girl is Almost Here

Any day now people, any day! At least that’s what I’m telling myself. After my last appointment on Thursday there was zero change from 36 weeks with the exception of maybe 1/2 cm and she was lower. Leaving I felt a sense of peace. I’m not worried, or feeling as anxious as I was last week. I know there is not too much more time left. This week and next week’s theme is going to be living in the moment. I took that approach when I was 39 weeks with Rylee and I had her within that week ;). But seriously I’m soaking in all the time I can as a family of three.
