Baby Two: 34 Weeks Pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 8/18/17 which means I’m 34 weeks, 1 day pregnant! Baby is the size of a basketball hoop. I’ve gained… if my home scale is correct, I may have gained 24 pounds. We will see next week at my midwife appt. Midwife appointment this week? Nope – next Thursday! Current mood: Stressed out. I came into work today to a million things I had to fix. But on the house front, I’m a little relieved because baby girl’s room is finally painted and I…

Baby Two: 33 Weeks Pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 8/11/17 which means I’m 33 weeks, 1 day pregnant! Baby is the size of a junior tennis racquet. I’ve gained… probably about 20 pounds by now.

I Bought My First Home!

I did a really cool thing this past week – I bought my first home! When my mom and dad sat me down a couple years ago and told me that they wanted to sell me their house, I was stunned. I remembered back to the day we drove around in the van going to house after house with our real estate agent.

Baby Two: 32 Weeks Pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017! Today is 8/3/17 which means I’m 32 weeks pregnant! Baby is the size of a plastic scooter board. I’ve gained… 18 pounds! Midwife appointment this week? Nope, but I had one last week! I saw one of the new midwives (If I remember correctly, her name was Karen) and then Jualeah gave me an almost-spanking for not being so awesome with taking my iron. Don’t get me wrong, I want to not be anemic anymore, but that liquid iron is so gross and it’s…
