36 Weeks

We just got home from a breastfeeding class and Josh is the best husband ever for going with me. It was super informative, as I knew relatively nothing until this class. We had some uncontrollable laughing fits during the class though, which made me feel like a middle-schooler, but oh well. Tomorrow I am 37 […]

Tomorrow I’ll be 36 weeks! This little guy is coming in about a month. That means I get to go to the birthing center every week now for an appointment. This also means we need to install our carseat like now, and pack a hospital bag and all that fun stuff just in case he […]

Today a co-worker of mine pointed out that we are half-way through September. After hearing that, I freaked out a little bit. Our baby boy will be here in 2 and 1/2 months. Are you joking? We have so much to do! Ahhhh! But I’m so excited to meet him at the same time. Last […]

Hello friends. Hellooo baby bump. Josh did this week’s dry erase board, can you tell? I had a doctor’s appointment last Friday and did my glucose screening. Yikes, that drink is disgusting. I’m praying I pass the test because I don’t think I can drink that again! There was crystalized sugar chunks at the bottom […]
