August Updates

I have been trying to bring more to my blog with it either being life posts or just random things I can think of. My last few posts have been about my pregnancy and of course my general life offline. Well, as you saw, my last post was about the birth of my daughter Leah.

This post is my August Updates which include beauty, lifestyle, and a whole bunch other things. Since my daughter was born in August, I have to include her. She has been a dream to have. I love motherhood, and everything new thing that brings along with it. She is absolutely adorable. Sure, there are ups and downs, but what would motherhood be without them.

A Bundle of Joy

Last week turned out to be a different experience. Monday started out pretty normal with a few twinges that I wasn’t quite sure about. When Wednesday came around for my next Doctor’s appointment, my husband and I found out some information. My baby girl’s due date was for August 8th. She was still pretty healthy and active in the womb on Wednesday. The doctor said that if she wasn’t here by her due date, we would meet for another appointment and make the decision on when to induce. My husband and I basically had a plan. She would be here within the week before the following Friday. Wednesday was my birthday, so my husband was kind enough to treat me out before we headed home. That is when things started to change.

Surprises come in small packages

I know I have been pretty bad about keeping this place updated. Heck, I haven’t been very good about updating anything unless I am making a shrine at my other domain. That is about to change, though. Things are starting to slow down. As I stated in my last post, I am currently pregnant. This pregnancy has been going quite well actually. Sure, we had some difficulties during the first trimester, but afterwards everything was starting to go pretty smooth. I don’t have any cravings yet, but the weight has started to appear. Even at 19 weeks, I am starting to show.

Now, regarding to finding out what we are having, that was a long debate. At first, my husband wasn’t wanting to actually know. It was a tradition in his family to wait till the day the baby was born. I was a little bit against it. I wanted to know what I was having so I could plan things Sure, in our current house, we were not going to have a nursery, but I still could plan things by clothing, toys, and other essentials that I would need. Well, that debate was finally broke.
