Support Her Dream with the Bravado Dream Nursing Tank

#SupportHerDream Bravado Dream Nursing Tank

I received the Dream Tank from Bravado but my opinions are always honest. Thank you for reading!  This post contains affiliate links. I've shared with you some of my tools for breastfeeding and even some updates on how that's going.  One part of breastfeeding is pumping if you're not near your little one for an extended period of time.  I've done it in the past when I was nursing Luke for some blogging conferences I attended, and with each conference, I learned something new to make the process a little easier. A few weeks ago, I headed to a different conference - one for Scentsy.  I was … [Read more...]

Pregnant? You Need This.

Bao Bei Maternity Belly Sport Bra

I should have also included - Pregnant belly and have littles at home already? You need this.  What is it? Literally the best thing I've used this pregnancy and I didn't even get it till the end of it. A few weeks ago, I was just over how much weight I was carrying in my stomach.  Bathtime was torture with the kids because I hated having to bend over and scrub-a-dub-dub them.  I went to Buy Buy Baby and grabbed something that said it offered "support" but really, did not.  I posted it on Instagram and one of my friends tagged Bao Bei Maternity on the post and said I needed to check it … [Read more...]

Naming Names..Or Not

Naming Names - 100,000 baby names bruce lansky

This entire pregnancy has had one really big hurdle for Jon and I.  We absolutely could not pick a name for this baby.  When we decided to be Team Green,  I knew there would be some interesting aspects.  One thing I did not expect was really the whole name debacle.  We'd talk about it for a short time, then shelf it.  Then bring it up again.  Even on our date day to California Pizza Kitchen we asked our waitress what her kids were named to see if maybe that would help spark something for us.  I've shared about this trouble on Instagram and Facebook.  And then my friend and fellow blogger Chris … [Read more...]

36 Week Bumpdate

36 week bumpdate

I'm officially "full-term" despite that 36 not being 40.  The whole timeframe for being pregnant is so odd.  When you find out you're pregnant, you're already like 4 or so weeks along.  The time starts counting as SOON as you finish your last cycle, even though you couldn't have technically gotten pregnant then since a lot has to occur before the little bean is implanted in your uterus. At 36 weeks, if I go into labor, there is no medical intervention done to stop it.  And since this is baby #3, I've really been realizing how much I need to get done asap.  I just started maternity leave and … [Read more...]

Pregnancy update – 26 weeks

twentysix

You guys, I am TWENTY-SIX weeks pregnant.  The time is going at a normal rate but holy wow do I feel 26 weeks pregnant.  My maternity tanks I live in (From Target - Liz Lange Maternity) are getting shorter and shorter as my belly is getting bigger and bigger.  I'm slowly outgrowing my pjs.  And I got the waddle bad.  Even Aubrey's preschool office manager is pointing out my waddle. And yes, I am complaining but I'm pretty sure lugging around the extra 20 lbs I've gained warrants that right.  I remember the first time I was pregnant and in the last month of pregnancy I couldn't understand … [Read more...]

First Trimester Must-Haves

first trimester must haves

I feel like shouting from the rooftop - I'M OUT OF THE FIRST TRIMESTER!!! Time will tell if this will transition into the disappearance of nausea as it's been a rough road.  But I wanted to share with you some of my favorite items I had by me to help me get through the first trimester of pregnancy.  Many of these are beloved items I repurchased (since we got rid of everything from the past pregnancies) and some are new discoveries. Most of these I've linked to Amazon because hello - Amazon Prime is amazing (they also have Amazon Mom that has its own set of benefits) and are … [Read more...]
