My Love-Hate Relationship with My Pregnant Body

The other day I had the pleasure of taking all three children to the doctor’s for check-ups and one earache. As a treat for what turned out to be an exhausting two-hour ordeal (isn’t it always?), we all went out for lunch afterwards.

As my 5-year-old sat sipping her drink, she suddenly looked up at me with a thoughtful look on her face.

“Mom, what does it feel like to have a turkey neck?” she asked innocently. 

Talk about a pregnant boost of confidence, right?

7 Sweet Tutus for Little Ones

In January, I made myself a tulle skirt for a big event I was attending.

I loved wearing it and felt so pretty and festive all evening in it.

Since then, I’ve considered making some for my girls, who I know would love them, but haven’t gotten around to it.

Imagine my delight when I saw these sweet tutus for little ones all ready to go! No sewing required.

My Crazy Nesting Shenanigans That Changed Everything

Home makeover shows hath no fervor like a preggo mama nesting. When that instinct kicks in, it is the real deal. If you want something done, write it on the to-do list of a nesting mom-to-be. She’ll never notice and will get the job done with motherly care and perfection.

I’ve nested before in my previous pregnancies. In my first pregnancy I found out my daughter’s gender specifically so that I can prepare her nursery. Washing, folding, and hanging clothes; assembling the crib and dresser; shopping for cute accessories; I did it all while nesting. Second pregnancy rolls around and I’m painting rooms, removing closet doors to rearrange furniture, and taking part in DIY projects for the nursery. With each pregnancy, I became more and more eager to prepare my nest. But with this fourth and final pregnancy, my nesting has kicked into super sonic overdrive.
