(Baby Gray at 36 weeks!)
We are in the home stretch! Cuh-RAY-zee! (Yes, I just turned a two-syllable word into a three :).
We had our 36 week appointment and everything is looking good! However, our little man has turned from the perfect head-down position to posterior (which means his head is still down, but instead of facing my spine he’s facing my stomach), which can mean a longer and not-so-pleasant labor (ever heard of back labor?). Since we area planning to give birth naturally, this is definitely not ideal, so I have been doing exercises to get him to move, and also praying Continue reading
I’m in bed right now and it’s almost 6 am. I’ve been awake and restless since about 4am… It’s quiet moments like this, where I admit my first go-to is to check Instagram and then Facebook (which I rarely check FB). Occasionally I’ll feel our little man stretching out or adjusting his position and I’m reminded that it won’t be too long now that when I wake up in the middle of the night or early morning it will be because our new little one will need us.
We have 8 weeks to go. Holy moly. The time has flown by. At first, time seemed to crawl! We were hoping just to make it past where our first three pregnancies ended and then hoping to make it to 12 and then took forever for the 20 week anomaly & gender ultra sound to get here. Now, we find ourselves at 32 weeks! Ahhhh… Continue reading
Yup. I made the leap.
I bought maternity clothes. Maternity PANTS even!
Fitting Room Fun at H&M
I’ve always not been very thrilled with maternity clothes. Something about seeing those pants on the hangar with tons of elastic around the band just isn’t very appealing… talk about not feeling cute! Continue reading
These last 3 weeks have been crazy fun and busy between prepping for our latest launch, visiting family, finding a place to live until our new home is completed, starting to pack up our house (bitter/sweet!), and making decisions on our new home (who knew all the little choices to be made with a home!!), BUT the most exciting thing these last few weeks has been feeling Baby Gray moving!!!!
It started out just a little pulse here and there, but the movements and bumps at times get really big (you can see the first time I captured the baby moving on Instagram). It is the funnest thing ever because 1) it’s like confirmation that my gut isn’t getting bigger for no reason (he he ;o) and there’s actually a live, human being in there (we hope, right? Anyone birthed an alien before? ;o) and 2) Zach gets to experience our little babes moving too!!
It’s totally the funnest thing ever.
We had our anomaly and gender scan yesterday! I have to admit, Zach and I were both caught off guard!
We are having a boy!
When the technician said our child was most definitely male, the first thing out of my mouth was, “Are you sure?” lol.
It’s crazy to think that we are going to have a son! Continue reading
Today marked another first. A woman at the pool asked me if I was sporting a baby bump.
It was so fun to be able to respond with a resounding “Yes!” Continue reading
We did it! We made the first step that we have always been leery of making in the past… Continue reading
We are SO excited to announce that we are growing our family!

We can’t believe that we are finally sharing this publicly with everyone! It has been such a heart-wrenching journey to get to this place and we can’t believe that we are finally here. Even now, we are hesitant to make it public, but we won’t be able to keep this under wraps much longer with my growing baby pooch. Continue reading
