Our newest crew member is being a little stinker! We had a prenatal appointment on Monday and the midwife was kind enough to do a quick sonogram to check on baby boy’s position for us. Unfortunately, despite my recent attempts to encourage him to turn.... he’s still breech😩 Still our little taco boy folded perfectly in half, and clearly quite comfortable with his head up in my ribs. 
At our appointment they tried to reassure me not to worry until closer to 36 weeks, but the famous midwife Gail Tully, creator of Spinning Babies, strongly believes otherwise. “At 26-28 weeks babies begin to move to a vertical lie. A few more will wait to go vertical until 28 weeks and fewer at 30 weeks. 28-30 weeks, the breech baby often flips head down. By 32 weeks, if baby is breech or sideways I suggest getting serious about prenatal corrective exercises and techniques.”
Here we are at 33 weeks and I’d be lying if I said I’m not panicking a little😥 If anyone needs me this week, chances are you can find me with an ice pack under my ribs doing forward leaning inversions off the side of our couch and any other exercises I can conjure up on YouTube.

If anyone has a successful story of a late turner, feel free to cheer me up in the comments🙏🏼

My precious little girl is now beginning to look like a little lady. Her sweet and innocent face gets me all the time and it fills my heart with so much joy. Every little thing she does is just so magical and every sound she makes brings music to my ears. .
.
I can never explain the fulfilment she gives me. Until now, I don’t know what I have done so good in the past that I was gifted with her beautiful soul. 💜
.
.
Do you ever wonder what you’ve done to have someone so precious as your little babes? .

#24weekspregnant #bumpdate & I’m about to overshare 😅 Hope that’s cool! 🤷🏼‍♀️ The weird pregnancy dreams are continuing! Every night for the past week I’ve had one after another, all a bit strange, stressful or otherwise unusual 😬 Also had the craziest feeling yesterday: it felt like a literal RIP right above my belly button 😖 It was fast & sharp which went away 2 seconds later. But the same feeling happened again today & it’s sooo unsettling! I think it’s just my body expanding to accommodate 👶🏽, but MAN, it was super strange/uncomfortable 😐 Also, can we talk about nipples for a second? 😂 They’re also feeling... different. Not bad. Not painful. But... sore? Like a very mild soreness. Pregnancy is weird, friends. Super, super weird 🤪 .

COMPLETELY OVERJOYED 🌿
We finally got to see our sweet babe today and hear the strongest little heartbeat.
(which, after these last few scary weeks, was the best sound ever 😭). He or she is looking “perfect”, and I still can’t wrap my head around that this is all real.. that, THIS IS HAPPENING. 
My heart is so full + I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to put into words the relief I’m feeling.

THANK YOU so much to everyone who kept baby j + I in your thoughts and prayers these last few days.
You have no idea how much it means to me and how grateful I am for this community 💛

#ad Someone is loving their new car seat from @maxicosiusa .  Having a sturdy, safe, and comfortable car seat for E is important to us because of all the errands we run.  From doctor’s appointments to grocery trips, E is comfortable and safe in her Maxi-Cosi Magellan.

I love that this car seat is an All-In-One.  It grows with her (goes from birth to 10 years old / 5-120 Ibs.) AND has backed booster support for her once she gets to that point. #MaxiCosi #Carseat

If you missed my stories, we had quite the scare Easter Sunday.  At around 10 am I started bleeding heavily with mild cramping.  I ran to Mike and started sobbing. I was sure that I was losing the baby.  My doctor told me to lay with my feet up all day and come in for an ultrasound the next day.  All day long I was a wreck.  But I have to tell you guys God is so good and I honestly felt every single one of your prayers!  This babe is already cared about by so many people and I can’t thank you guys enough for the support!  The second I heard that heartbeat I couldn’t hold back the tears.  We found out I had a Sub chorionic hematoma.  My doctor told me that it shows one of my blood vessels ruptured as the placenta was growing and moving.  He said it’s quite common in the first trimester and I had no idea!  I had several people reach out and tell me they dealt with the same thing. It’s such a terrifying thing to go through but I’m so beyond grateful that our little bean is healthy!! #11weekspregnant
