One Month for Adilyn

Just like that our little bean is already a month old! It feels like maybe two weeks have gone by but maybe that’s the sleep depravation talking. Okay it hasn’t been that bad… most nights. The first week and a half or so were really hard. Adilyn lost way too much weight so we wereContinue reading “One Month for Adilyn”

Adilyn’s Birth Story

I’m writing this as I’m going through labour so I don’t forget anything! Obviously I’ll have to come back and add in some info as I won’t be sitting here writing while pushing but close enough. So the procedure we did was with Cervidil. It’s a tampon they insert for 12 hours which is justContinue reading “Adilyn’s Birth Story”

40 Weeks – 5 Days Overdue

Well, Adilyn clearly doesn’t want to come out and at this point none of the ‘natural’ ways to start labour have worked. As of last week I still wasn’t dilated. Surprise, surprise, I’m still not dilated. Nothing at all, no difference from last week. I’m sore, I’m tired, and okay I might be a littleContinue reading “40 Weeks – 5 Days Overdue”

39 Weeks – Still Not Dilated

You guys! I just had my dr appointment and I’m still not dilated at all. Nothing! What the Hell? I’m scheduled to see my dr again next week but hopefully I’ll go into labour before then. I’ll see her Thursday and if still no baby, we are going to talk about induction. Well we talkedContinue reading “39 Weeks – Still Not Dilated”

37 Weeks – Are We There Yet?

I feel like a child on a VERY long road trip. All I keep thinking is are we there yet? Am I dilated yet? Is that a contraction yet or still Braxton Hicks? My doctor told me at this point it could be any day. I don’t know if that was helpful or made meContinue reading “37 Weeks – Are We There Yet?”

36 Weeks – It’s Baby Month

Somehow we have officially moved into November and it is baby month! Well as long as Bean doesn’t come too late. Not only am I counting the weeks I’m also counting it as days. So I either have about 3 and a half weeks left or 25 days! I can’t decide which one stresses meContinue reading “36 Weeks – It’s Baby Month”

34 Weeks – Ya Girls Sore

Y’all I am hurting. This SPD thing is no joke. After sitting for a long period of time because of multiple Thanksgiving meals, I was out of commission for a couple of days! It’s like I need to plan one thing a week or else I’m too sore for anything else. It’s so frustrating. It’sContinue reading “34 Weeks – Ya Girls Sore”

Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time

Y’all I don’t know who is more surprised by this pregnancy but let me tell you, its been rough. Though it may have taken us by surprise, the excitement has been growing with each week that goes by. I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it but I was terrified when I found out.Continue reading “Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time”

Child-Led Potty Training

When I first became a mother, potty training was the thing I dreaded the most. We constantly heard stories of how difficult and messy it was, and there was so much pressure to have a child fully trained by a certain age. There were horror stories of training too early, and what would happen ifContinue reading “Child-Led Potty Training”
