Bags are packed, I'm ready to go!

Tomorrow I'll be at The Farm staying in my midwife's birthing cabin right next door to her. I'll be 38 weeks 2 days pregnant and at that point, Tater can basically choose her perfect birthday and come whenever she is ready. I wont be stressing about whether or not we'll make it to The Farm in time, my stress will shift to "will N get back to us in time when labor starts?" but I'll be much better off as far as anxiety goes (I think). Pretty much everything on my to-do list is done, I am ready to go and am slightly excited to arrive at The Farm. On the other hand I am sort of sad to leave the house, pets and N behind. It is going to be...

Less-words Wednesday: Pregnancy Home Stretch Edition

There are only two more days until I leave you all and head off to wait on my little girls arrival. I am totally feeling ready for this and am very anxious for labor to begin. Saw the chiropractor yesterday and was all out of whack again. Even more so now that Tater's bones are grinding against mine in just about every position I am in. Felt good to be adjusted and all put back in place. Here's hoping all stays that way for the delivery. With chiropractic care labor and delivery are supposed to be quicker and easier. Yesterdays adjustment was my last before heading off to The Farm. Before I head off I've been sure to write many advance posts and get them all scheduled here to tide you over...

Today I am 35 weeks pregnant, another belly shot shared.

I am eating some nut & chocolate trail mix. Just slathered more goop on the belly and was thinking I should write a 35 week pregnancy post. Still pregnant as ever, feeling more and more uncomfortable as the days pass. Am still gaining weight despite all the talk in books about how weight gain slows or stops towards the end of the pregnancy. Captured this belly shot yesterday after getting off the phone with Krystal. She said "you must be getting so huge", I sure feel freaking huge but you can be the judge of that based upon the photo. My hormones are sure in full swing these days. Yesterday I had a blow up at the post office thanks to a rude postal worker. Super annoying situation, very irritating employee and I...

6 weeks until the baby wait begins…

In 6 short weeks I'll be taking a blog hiatus and enjoying the forest settings at The Farm while I wait for Tater to join us. Can you believe that? 6 weeks! I am feeling pretty good about it all and am still totally ready and excited! If you missed the update on my latest OBGYN appointment from yesterday you can read about it here. Some of you already know, we went thrift store rummaging for baby clothes as did Maiden53 (who is a doll for thinking of us) and we've also received some new clothes from N's family and from my grandparents for Tater. This means we have about 30 outfits in varying sizes and styles ranging from 0-24 months! I succeeded in getting them all laundered at the moldy rental...

Weekend #2 in our new place, it's been busy!

I've got 3 posts in my saved drafts that I've been working on. I've written them pretty well but cant seem to actually finish them. They are even decent writing pieces that focus on specific topics rather than my usual "here are the updates" posts like this one. I've been trying to bust out some posts in advance that I'll schedule in June to keep the blog fresh while I am away from the internet waiting for Tater to come. That is the idea at least. If anyone wants to guest post here just sign up as a user and I'll get you all hooked up to be a contributor. Okay, so over the weekend we did get lots done, as usual...

Summertown & Nashville Tennessee weekend recap, fun times!

We had a blast this weekend and even took some photos to share with you. Hopefully you enjoyed the belly shot photos I shared with you over the weekend. If you haven't seen those yet you can by following this link. For those of you who didn't already know we planned to spend my birthday weekend in Tennessee. It was our last appointment with our midwife out at The Farm until we come to stay and deliver Tater in early June. We figured it would also be kind of nice to plan a mini vacation for that weekend since it will be basically the last time we travel for leisure as just the two of us before Tater arrives. N did have a nice dinner planned for me at The Melting Pot in...

Home birthing supply kit and Tater preparations.

I still can't believe I am a pregnant lady! Spending my days at home doesn't provide much opportunity for getting dressed up in much more than PJ's or workout clothes. Naturally I have not been able to see just how pregnant I truly am since I am not getting dressed up and going many places these days. Today was another story though. I had my 2nd followup chiropractor appointment to attend so I was up, dressed and even put on some light makeup today. I looked like my usual self except for the baby bump (that I am still not used to seeing). I've been on the lookout for the inevitable stretch-marks and have been applying lotions and creams often. Then my mom informs me that they don't actually appear until after...

What a crock! Walmart Canopy Memory Foam Mattress Topper Review

[POPUP=IMG1] At the furniture store we started drooling over the amazing memory foam mattresses. They were great to lay on and we thought they would really help me sleep more comfortably when the pregnancy weight sets in. Besides our mattress is older and is becoming a bit uncomfortable these days. Speaking of pregnancy weight today my pants were on the brink of not buttoning. Usually my stomach is about level with my hip bones. I am still measuring 25 inches around the smallest part of my waist but when we measure over the largest part of my stomach it is 30 inches. Here is a photo of the belly, it is my first "belly shot". Now get busy placing your vote on the Talina's Baby Weight Contest okay? Okay, back to the memory foam...
