Time really does fly when you’re having fun (and getting no sleep)! Last week, Collins turned one month old, actually today she is 5 weeks old, and it all just seems like it’s going by too fast already!
If you’ve been following us throughout my pregnancy, you know that we were kept on our toes by little Collins all pregnancy long! In my third trimester, after an admission to the hospital, I got diagnosed with gestational hypertension & started having to see a high-risk doctor in addition to my midwives.
When we first began planning our blog posts for this year, I had wanted to share with all of you my plan to get back in shape postpartum. I wanted to be able to share my extensive plans on how I was going to be eating better and the exercise plans that I had for myself to gain lean muscle and lose the excess body fat. However I am now 3 months postpartum and my plan looks nothing like I had anticipated.
I’m trying not to say it too much, but it really is 100% true, being Conley’s mama keeps getting better and better. Conley is the sweetest baby, and I am loving watching her grow and change and take in the world around her (also simultaneously crying because it’s happening all too fast!). I can’t believe we are officially out of the “4th trimester” and my little teeny girl is no longer a newborn.
Well the first of month of Conley’s life we were so proud that we had made it a month. She was still alive, we were alive and we were kind of getting a hang of this whole parenting thing. While we know we still don’t know exactly what we’re doing, the second month it sure does feel like we’ve got a pretty good thing going. We are loving being her parents and how interactive Conley is now.
I can’t even believe that I have a bag under the desk in my bedroom that I’m taking to the hospital when I go into labor. It seems a little surreal that the time is actually almost here, and that before we know it we will be on our way to the hospital to meet our baby! I am now 37 weeks and a couple days, and after this week I feel like it truly could be any day, so I am preparing myself by trying to keep the house clean and keeping a bag for Kyle and I packed so that we are ready to go.
Although our shower was a couple weeks ago, I am still reflecting on just how special that day really was to me. I wanted to share with you all the beauty that was my shower and also just share my thankfulness to everyone who has been loving on me and my baby girl so well and supporting our little family.
Trey & I are beside ourselves with excitement to announce that we are expecting baby Watten in March of 2019!
I can hardly believe that I am already in the third trimester with our baby girl! After the first trimester this pregnancy has absolutely flown by and I can’t believe we are less than 3 months from meeting our baby. Today, I wanted to take some time to share with you all some updates on how the last few weeks of pregnancy have been, to reveal our baby girl’s name and then to share a couple of my favorite items so far!
