Baby Two: 26 Weeks Pregnant

  Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 6/22/17 which means I’m 26 weeks pregnant. Baby is the size of a bowling pin! I’ve gained… we’re not talking about it. Mmmkay? 😉 Midwife appointment this week? Nope, but I have my glucose screen next week. Yikes. Thankfully I asked for the organic grape juice so I don’t have to drink the watered down sprite-like drink… Current mood: All over the place, honestly. Happy that things are finally coming together with buying my dad’s house (my late childhood…

Everything is Temporary Until it’s Not

“Everything is temporary until it’s not, to me,” he says to me. I’ve had to squeeze this answer out of him and at first, I’m kind of taken aback. Why would someone go through their life thinking people are just temporary? How do you form attachments like that? And why does this make it okay to treat people like they’re nothing? I’m gone soon after, because I’m not wanted, because I am just temporary to him. And although I wasn’t sure at the time…

Baby Two: 25 Weeks Pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 6/16/17 which means I’m 25 weeks, 1 day. Baby is the size of a baseball glove. I’ve gained… well the scale at Baby & Co said I gained 13.4 pounds – however – I was wearing my chunky wedges on the scale so I’d subtract like 2 pounds for those so I’m going to round to 11 pounds for now. 🙂  Midwife appointment this week? Yes, I had my 2nd trimester group visit at my birthing center Wednesday afternoon. This was my first…

5 Must-Have Rolling Carry-ons for Summer

I’m getting ready for my trip to Barcelona and Lisbon in July and it occurred to me that since I’ll be in my third trimester, I’m probably not going to want to lug around a backpack like I usually do as a carry on. Therfore, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect rolling carry-on that will hook up to my regular luggage but will also allow me to roll it through airports after I’ve checked my bigger bag. Below are some of my favorite finds via Amazon! I wish I could get them…

Baby Two: 24 Weeks Pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 6/8/17 which means I’m 24 weeks. Baby is the size of a GI Joe. I’ve gained… Good question.  Midwife appointment this week? Nope – next week though! Current mood: A bit relieved that I survived another milestone without my mom. Yesterday was her birthday so I bought sunflowers (her favorite) and we bought a watermelon cake (it was vanilla but looked like a watermelon). I miss her more than I can say.  Cravings: Carrot cake & banana bread still. I bought some carrot cake along with the…
