I’m sitting at home. ALONE. ALL ALONE. L I T E R A L L Y A L L A L O N E. And it’s been such a great day. I have done so much stuff today that has really filled my cup up to make me a whole human being again. As I […]

one year old

After a hectic start to Jolee’s life…where are we now? Well, I did not keep up month to month posts with Jolee. So, we are pretty much going to jump from 4 months old to now…1 year old. She’s perfect. And feisty. And funny. And I love her so much. As I was editing the […]

infant speech therapy

Throughout the whole Jolee’s Journey with the Bottle…I have remained cautiously optimistic about the whole situation. She’s taken a bottle and then not taken a bottle and then taken a bottle again. I hoped this was the end of everything. I hoped she was really going to take a bottle forever. Well, not forever, but […]

Yesterday I had such a great doctor appointment in terms of progress. I couldn’t believe I was 4cm dilated. That was so big for me. When my appointment was over, I went home and cleaned the entire house hoping to bring on my labor. I was left with nothing but exhaustion. I went to bed […]

birth story

May 8, 2019. My actual due date. How in the actual fuck am I still pregnant? I cannot believe that I am still pregnant. I was never supposed to see my due date. She was supposed to be here for at least 2 weeks by now. NOPE. Shit man. This was uncomfortable. I did not […]

Week 40 of Pregnancy 6

Spoiler alert…I was pregnant for all of week 39. Yes. ALL OF WEEK 39. Here are some things that I tried this week to help naturally induce my labor and/or get baby in the right position. I bought an exercise ball and I have been sitting, bouncing, doing circles, doing figure eights, ALL THE THINGS. […]

39 weeks pregnant

If you remember from Week 38, my doctor said the baby was in a posterior position. I googled it. WHY? I got the majority of my information from spinningbabies.com which has a freaking plethora of information about getting your baby into an ideal position for labor. I honestly wish that I had read this much […]

Week 39 of Pregnancy 6

I AM ALL THE FUCKING EMOTIONS THIS WEEK. I am finally starting to feel some relief from my bum rib from coughing so much, so now, I no longer feel doomed. I officially told my CrossFit coach that I would not be returning to CrossFit until after I had the baby. Speaking that shit into […]

Week 38 of Pregnancy 5

Remember how I was sick last week? You know, just the typical allergies? Well they ended up kicking my ass. I ended up taking medicine it got so bad. I consulted with the doctor first to see what was safe and she recommended Zyrtec. So that’s what I went with in hopes it would clear […]

Week 37 of Pregnancy 6

This week I was having my last ultrasound of my pregnancy. I was praying she was going to be a good size and they wouldn’t give me any grief for her being too big and suggest a C-Section. I was really excited to see what she looked like this late in my pregnancy. Prior to […]

Week 36 of pregnancy 6

It’s April. I feel like this could potentially be the month that Jolee is born. This makes me happy and also makes me anxious as hell. Overall, I will be happy to not be pregnant anymore. But lately, I have been straight up scared to death of labor. I know I have been through it […]

Week 35 of Pregnancy 6

I had another OB appointment this week. It was nothing super exciting. They were just checking Jolee’s heartbeat and checking in. I proceeded to tell her I was ready for her to get the hemorrhoids off my ass right that second. Seriously though, I asked her everything about surgery, side effects, recovery time…and she said […]

Week 34 of Pregnancy 6

In the midst of everything, I forgot to mention that Scott was out of town last week. He went to Nashville for the SEC tournament. We are huge Kentucky fans. He goes to the SEC tournament every single year. But, I’ve also never been this pregnant while he was away. I was really hesitant at […]

Week 33 of Pregnancy 6

This week, we had a lot of good shit going on. I had another appointment with the OB as well as another follow up ultrasound. I was looking forward to it and dreading it all at the same time. I was hoping little miss was back down to measuring a normal size as opposed to […]

Week 32 of Pregnancy 6

It’s the beginning of March. And I feel like I am getting a fresh start. For the moment, my anxiety is back in check. I have refocused. And I’m feeling normalish. Whatever normalish is these days. I had a Self-Care Sunday this past Sunday. I went back and visited the salt cave. To refresh everyone’s […]
