Still surreal

That’s my life. Since that beautiful day in February that we found out we were pregnant. Most days I woke up in the morning shocked that I was pregnant. I kinda always thought it was a dream. Even with my ginormous belly (which, BTW, I don’t remember being THAT big even though I remember my […]

Birth story

Our baby has arrived. Date: 10/12/15 Time: 12:04 a.m. Weight: 7lbs 4.9oz Length: 19 1/2in I was in early labor (contractions between 10-30 minutes) for 2 days, beginning late Friday night,┬áthen they became more frequent, between 4-10 minutes, the next day. Oh and I lost my nasty mucus plug that 2nd day. When they were […]

In the home stretch

Well, the past couple of weeks have been quite eventful! I started my new position, finished the nursery, went on maternity leave, attended a wedding, packed my hospital bag, and completed some DIY projects. Oh, and made a quick stop in L&D for some monitoring. Last Thursday I started maternity leave and also got bad […]

35 weeks

Holy cow! Well, we’re nearing the end. And it’s so surreal. Stupid Stork warned me that pregnancy and having a baby never actually becomes real, but I didn’t believe her. I mean, woman is cray. But she was right! I still wake up surprised at this giant bump. And hold my breath until he wakes […]

Lots to update

I got it! Thanks for all the support and encouragement. I’m still in shock lol. My 2nd interview was on Wednesday and an hour after I was done, I got the offer. So when I get back from maternity leave, I’ll be managing a brand new traveling unit of 4 staff. I can’t wait! I […]

Guess who’s sitting on an ice pack?

Yep, that’s right, ME! TMI-alert: hemorrhoid talk ensues My 2nd hemorrhoid of this pregnancy has popped out and it’s so uncomfortable! But the worst part is imagining what will happen when I push this baby out. Especially because both have popped out when I’m merely slightly pushing. I’m not constipated or anything. Then all of […]

Pregnancy insomnia

Um isn’t it too early for this? At 33 weeks it is happening more frequently. I’ve been laying in bed trying to sleep for over an hour and nothing. I’m so tired, but my mind keeps racing. I’m usually really good at quieting my mind, but not anymore. So, hi, everyone! Let’s see…oh I guess […]


I got a second interview next week! Eeeek! I’m so shocked! Thanks for all the well-wishes and support! Also, Baby is still stretching and moving lots and even though it gets really uncomfortable, I’m loving them. Soon, I won’t feel his movements in my womb anymore so I’m appreciating every moment. Finally, I passed another […]


And it was my last one in the office! My boss approved me to telecommute 3 days a week starting next week. WOOOOHOOOO! This bebe is getting bigger and feeling heavier everyday so dragging my butt to work 5 days a week has been so rough. Now I imagine my productivity will increase substantially and […]
