Little One Young #2! Our Rainbow baby

If you have been following along, you would know that we lost a baby back in November. It was tough. A lot of family & friends were surprised to find out we were even pregnant because we originally said to everyone like a broke record “One & Done”. After losing the little bean back in November we decided that we truly did want a second little one running around and for Lucas to have a sibling. To my surprised after 30 days after the miscarriage, I tested positive! I just decided to take a test for the hell of it. I was doing my makeup for work and had my glasses off and looked over at the test maybe 1 minute after taking it and my eyes were bulging. I was in shock! I couldn’t believe it and scrambled to put on my glasses. I kept it a secret from my husband for a couple of days but decided to tell him because I felt the hormones rushing on in and I can’t hide when Im over emotional. Im 12 weeks as of today.

5 remedies to help YOU sleep

When my son was a few months old, and I was deep in the midst of sleep-deprivation & “mommy fog”. Lucas was still sleeping a lot better than most newborns. I would only have to get up once, but most of the time twice or three times for 3 months. That being said, I don’t do well on broken sleep & I cried. A lot. Lucas was a good sleeper relativity early. We think it’s because of his weight! He’s always been in the 97th percentile. When he finally did start sleeping well, I discovered something — he could sleep through the night, but I couldn’t! Suddenly, was the one waking up multiple times each night, unable to fall back asleep, while my son slept peacefully in his crib. I would constantly check the video monitor each time I woke up.

• Week Thirty One

Here do I begin, 31 weeks pregnant is uncomfortable of course but I went camping starting on 31 weeks and the 4 days being in nature was great! My only complaint would be walking because of my SPD.
Spencer & I ate really well on the camping trip besides a couple vegan s'mores! We went to Long Beach, Tofino and watched the surfers, took funny photos

• Week Twenty Eight •

I've officially hit another milestone! THIRD TRIMESTER! Where has the time gone? I was told it would go by fast & when I was told this I was probably 9 weeks along. I was just dragging every day because I felt like it was going by so slow! Now, I wish I had more time with being less uncomfortable though. The overwhelming feeling has officially set in like I need to get everything done. Which, I will probably get the majority and be bored by the end of my pregnancy waiting on little one to come into this world to join us.
