Have you lost all the baby weight yet?
10 times out 10 after you have a baby you still look like you’re pregnant. Just because the baby came out doesn’t mean all of the weight did too. It took nine months to grow the baby and they say it takes nine months to take it off. And for the record, nursing a baby turns you into a ravenous beast. I can pretty much eat double my weight in food. So that’s not really helping me drop the weight either.
Here I am..again. Giving another bump update. I definitely was thinking this baby would have made his way here by now but he’s still settled in. I’ve been having contractions but still nothing consistent.
I’m finally 37 weeks and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The pregnancy finish line is creeping up on me. I feel like this was the fastest pregnancy I’ve ever had and I’m not sure I’m 100% ready for it to end. I say this every time I’m about to have a baby but the miracle of pregnancy and knowing that you are growing an actual human being that could potentially change the world one day just blows my mind. It’s so something I’m so proud and scared of at the same time.
I will state this now, I am not a breastfeeding expert by any means. I really struggled the first month with breastfeeding Kellan but it was something I was determined to do and we went six months before he self weened. We learned that he was cutting a tooth them and was not showing interest in nursing because of that. Knox, I nursed for 8 months and boy was I glad when it was over. He cut his teeth and became a biter, which I was not happy about! In my combined 14 months of nursing here are a few things that I learned and items I already have ready to go for our newest baby boy. I have no goal set in mind. We will just be taking it a day at a time in hopes that everything works out for us.
I can’t believe we are nearing the end!!!! I’m going to be a mom of THREE!!!! Holy crap, it’s making me nervous just thinking about three kids. We finally got two down and now we’re adding a new one to the bunch. #3kids3andunder! What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, right!? We’ve had an eventful last month together. A California trip (if you didn’t watch our video you can watch it here), a boys camping trip, and getting baby stuff all set and ready for him! Oh, and while the boys were gone I got to rest and hit up the casino! A mothers dream!
Having a baby is one of the scariest, most exciting, and best things that’s ever happened to me. It’s something a lot of women look forward to. Me, I never really knew that I wanted to be mom until I became one. Having kids wasn’t something I saw myself doing. Now that I am mom, almost 3x over, it’s something I wouldn’t trade for the world.
Now that the weather is getting warmer I always break out my summer foundations. The hot weather here is Arizona really dries out your skin so I love using illuminating and hydrating foundation just to brighten it up. My favorites I usually like to use are
