37 Weeks

As you can tell I haven’t been as good about my bump shots with Baby #3. Also, I’m about as worn out as I look in that pic, hahaha. Having a full-time job, 2 kids, and being 37 weeks pregnant is, well, exhausting! But I feel very blessed to have these things, so I can’t complain too much. I will, however, complain a bit about this rib pain I’ve been having. Ugh. It has always been the worst part of pregnancy for me. I can’t wait for this baby to drop!! No signs of labor in sight yet, which is find with me.

Maternity Photo Shoot

A couple of weeks ago I asked my best friend Ashley to snap some maternity pictures of me. I was a little nervous being on this side of the camera lens, but I just love how they came out.

Verano Mexicano

 We took a short summer trip to Mexico to surf, relax, and check out a water birthing center in Puerto Vallarta. We left the grommies behind for this trip which was actually pretty hard and I’m not sure I’ll be doing that again for a while! It had been almost a year since I last spent a week away from them. Anyway, we really liked the birthing center and I think we’ve found our spot to welcome our little love child. After spending a couple of days in PV we flew to Guerrero. The surf is much better down there and we have friends and family but we weren’t able to find a midwife that would assist in a water birth. We had lots of fun, though, and are planning on returning for my maternity leave as soon as we feel ready to leave Puerto Vallarta. I can’t believe how quickly the time is approaching!!! I’m a bit nervous but mostly just excited about the changes we’re about to experience. We’re ready!!!

Coming Soon…

If you’re my Facebook or Instagram friend you’ve probably already heard the news… Ryan and I have a love child on the way and it’s due THIS MONTH! EEEeeek! We’re so excited to welcome this little bundle sometime around August 27th. We don’t know if it’s a girl or boy yet, and we’re planning a natural childbirth in Puerto Vallarta. I plan on updating this blog of mine a lot more after the baby is here (it did start as a baby blog after all). For now, I’ll be doing the best I can to share some posts about this pregnancy and what not. Stay tuned!
