27 weeks with baby #3

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

I made it! This pregnancy has had some ups and some major downs. It's been a fight and a struggle like a lot of stages of motherhood but for the fast few weeks I've been feeling so much better and stronger emotionally. The last part of pregnancy is my absolute favorite and I made it! We did it! I say we because I've had SO MUCH support from my husband mainly and my family and beautiful friends. I could not do motherhood without this freakin village. I've gained a good solid 10 pounds. I've been battling body images issues and feeling frustrated with my energy level... but I'm meeting that with self-compassion and that's ALWAYS the answer. I'm always hungry and always always always THIRSTY. River and Golden have come a long way this summer. They are playing together! Guys! This is huge!!!!!! I just feel so lucky to have these babies. So lucky. (and a lot overwhelmed) but SO lucky. This time of year is my favorite. Routine is just my favorite and fall and holidays and cozy-ness! Ahhhhh I'm just so in love. We are going on a 2 week trip, flying out Friday. Should be fun with lots of interesting experiences mixed in because.... toddlers.... and pregnancy.... and a pink-haired girl that struggles with flying + vacationing.. (Thank you anxiety, you are so fun) But I'm going to try my hardest to soak it alllllll in.
