We’re Moving into a 750 Sq Ft House And I Couldn’t Be Happier

We started searching for a two-bedroom apartment, duplex or house back in February. The rental market is insane in our tiny college town: there are two dozen people competing for every rental at any given time. The local Facebook group that lists all the current rentals is filled with dozens of anxious posts from people…

31 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

31 Weeks Pregnant. It is crazy to think that this baby will be here in 9-11 weeks. Even crazier to think that Gideon arrived at 37 weeks! We really are in the final stretch, and that is simultaneously exciting and terrifying! The past two weeks have been a bit rough, Gideon and I both came…

29 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Just days away from hitting 30 Weeks Pregnant! Crazy! Every week that goes by, lately, increases my shock that I am this far along. It goes so slo–oo–owly in the first trimester, but then really speeds up at this point! It’s been an exciting week in our household, mostly because we found a sweet little…

Questions I Have About Labor and Delivery

I am a second-time mom, but I’ve never experienced a single contraction. I had a C-section with my first baby. This time around, I am SO excited that I don’t have complete placenta previa, and that I am getting to plan a VBAC! Now that I have entered the third trimester, I am guzzling my…

28 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Third trimester, baby! If I was to sum up my first two trimesters it would go like this: First trimester: utterly exhausted, can’t find anything to eat, losing weight, and barely holding on. Second trimester: renewed zest for life, eating everything in sight, and feeling like myself again. Needless to say, the second trimester treated…

You guys, three months from the day I am writing this is my due date (insert excited squeal). And I have only one week left in the second trimester?! Yowza. There is still so much to do before this baby comes, that I am going to be cramming as much as I can in before…

26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Twenty-six weeks along! Lately, I’ve been feeling huge! I had to dig up pictures from my 26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #1 to compare, because it just feels like I am way bigger this time around, but I don’t think I really am. Honestly, more than anything, I feel a bit bewildered that I am…

24 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

For half a second, I thought I was twenty-five weeks pregnant this week. I had to look up last week’s bumpdate in order to figure out what week I was. That’s just a second pregnancy for ya. 😉 I am 24 (not 25) weeks pregnant this week! This is a big week for baby #2…

23 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Spring has unfurled slowly this year, leaf by leaf. It has been such a beautiful experience, with both of my pregnancies, that the day I started feeling better physically directly corresponded with the arrival of spring. I have always been sickest in my first trimester, which then turns into dreadful headaches and continued food aversions…
