Here We Grow Again…

Hiiiii & Welcome back to another awesome blog post from your favorite messy mama!

It’s been so long since I shared anything new on here with you guys. I figured what better way to catch you up on my life than through some words on my blog.

Let’s start by saying A LOOOOOT has changed. I believe my last post was about adjusting to life with two littles… well fast forward to 2021 & here we are expecting baby number three!

Yep. You read that right… T H R E E!

If I am being honest, this is as much as a surprise to us as it is to you! We always knew we wanted more kids but never knew exactly when. I think we both had different ideas of when we wanted to start trying for another baby… but God decided he had other plans in store for us! We are both very excited yet extremely nervous to add another to the mix. Once baby is born we will officially be out numbered, not going to lie though, we already feel like that LOL.

Baby M is due to arrive May 2022.

Going from 1 to 2 kids was extremely hard, the adjustment was intense for all of us. Sometimes I feel like Sage is still not even use to it. I have a few friends who have 3+ littles and when I ask them… “Was it hard going from 2 kids to 3??” Their response is always: “I’m not going to lie… YES!”

As much as I want all the little babies I’m fearful of not being able to be the best mother I can for each and every child. I fear that I will be so caught up in motherhood that I’ll forget to just live in the now and enjoy my babies while their small. I fear that I won’t be able to soak up every detail of each of their lives the way I was meant to. A part of me questions my ability on the daily. I get so intimidated at the thought that I won’t be sufficient enough for my littles.

But as this baby bean sprouts inside my belly, with all the hunger I feel (believe me when I say I’m forever hungry), the waves of nausea that come and go, all the heartburn, and emotions I feel.. God knew I was capable of being an amazing mama to my babies no matter the size of my fear. He knew that the good in me outweighs the bad, reassured me that through every storm in motherhood there is always a rainbow to follow. Our family was meant to grow at this time.

So here is to new adventures, new beginnings, new blessings, & new struggles. I’m ready to be tested to my limits and to LOVE a whole lot more. I can’t wait to share this journey with everyone. Stay tuned for more news on baby M.❤

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,

All The Feels Of A Preggo Mama

Where do I begin? The fact that I am carrying, growing, and nurturing a tiny human inside me blows my mind. My body was made to create a life, my body was made to give birth, and my body was made to feed my littles. Pregnancy is such an incredible blessing, I couldn’t thank God enough for this amazing gift. When I say all these rewarding aspects of pregnancy are beautiful in every way that does not mean there aren’t some unpleasant moments that come along with it. For instance; some women get sick and can’t eat anything without running to the bathroom a few moments after. As for me, I got what some may call “lucky” because I have a ravenous hunger to eat ALL the time. Yes, that sounds fun right? My partner got an eating buddy, yay! But in reality I have no in-between, I am either starving or so full it hurts. Its a day to day struggle but I’ve learned to eat smaller portions to avoid being uncomfortable which leads me to my next topic; WEIGHT GAIN. Every woman, big or small, will gain weight during their pregnancy. Whether it be 10 pounds to 60 pounds, it happens. With my first pregnancy I gained 50+lbs (on top of being a plus size Mama) and was very unhappy with myself after I delivered my beautiful little girl. It took forever to get that control that I was missing, back. Once I finally got it I became preggo again! I am happy to say that with this pregnancy I have managed to keep my gain under control and I am very pleased with how I am carrying. Next, lets discuss all things that have to do with your energy. Everyday I find myself completely winded from doing simple house chores. Its come to the point where the dishwasher has become my bestie, making the beds is very unnecessary since we crawl back into them anyways, and laundry takes 5 -7 business days to get back into the drawers. Growing a human takes it all from you, so sorry if my house isn’t as clean as it once was. I promise that its only temporary and things will get back into routine as soon as I’m up to it! I just want to take the time to let all the women in the world know, YOU ARE AMAZING.
