A little about me:
I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

33 weeks :)
Last week we went to a newborn basics class at the hospital. Eddie came into Kaina's life when she was 5, almost 6, and Kaina has never been around a newborn, so we decided to take a class to learn some basics. 😉
(Kaina did great)!
My Mother and Sister in law threw me such an awesome baby shower! (Pics below).
E was spoiled and we now have everything that we need to bring him home. 👏
The reality that we are soon going to have a newborn is setting in, and I'm so excited!
Sciatic nerve pain and pain on the right side of my back. E loves to hang out on my right side so it's no wonder that I have back pain on that side. 😉
Overall just achy and uncomfortable, but it's not for too long. I would take this over morning sickness any day.
Insomnia 😳 (I woke up at 2:30 this morning, it's now 4:30).
Pretty good... I had some super emotional days. Luckily I have an amazing husband. ❤️
Not sure 😊
Candy corn, microwave popcorn and Burger King. I won't let myself have microwave popcorn or Burger King, but I bought a bag of candy corn/pumpkins the other day. I still haven't opened it... I think I just want to smell it, lol 😳
None yet! 👌 fingers crossed.
Stretching out a lot - it's flat like a pancake.
We had maternity pictures done on Friday. It's probably the most vulnerable I've ever felt taking pictures, but Chelsie Lilja is an amazing photographer (with amazing editing skills??), and I can't wait to see them!
Below are pictures from the baby shower and a couple samples from our maternity pics. 😊
I hope you all have a great week!! 😘
