38 weeks caused us to feel a sense of urgency about EVERYTHING. I went into high-nesting mode and froze a bunch of crockpot dinners, made energy bites for the hospital and provided directions on what needed to be cleaned (I helped where I could but obviously avoided any chemicals). After meeting with our doula for… Continue reading 38 Week Update
This past weekend brought us our first snow of the year, and also our first snow since living in Chapel Hill. We only got about 3-4 inches and some ice mixed in with it but it made for a pretty couple days around the neighborhood.

I’ve shared a few times in the past about how I had envisioned being this fit pregnant lady who ran, lifted and sculpted her way through growing a tiny human, and then first trimester sickness hit and that all went out the window.
