24 Weeks 

Hi guys!

Been a while since I last blogged. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I’ve reached the part in my pregnancy where I’m feeling way too uncomfortable to do really do much of anything. Also inspiration is lacking a bit. 

Can you guys believe it? I’m 24 weeks today. It’s a little over the have way mark and I can not wait to meet our newest little addition. I’m stressing over the fact that I really don’t have much ready yet, because I felt as though we could wait because we “have time” but holy geeze time is flying by. 

I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday. I always get to stressed out over doctors appointments, I don’t know why. But it’s terrifying and nerve wracking to me. Been that way since I was little, so every time I have an appointment I make sure it’s on a day my husband can come along, because god knows if I went alone I’d lose it completely. But that usually means a night or two of not sleeping because I’ll be worrying about the appointment. I wish I had a way to cope with that. My first pregnancy I was far too sick to be worried about the doctors visit. So who knows. I’m super anxiety prone to all things doctors. If anyone has any advice to help curve that, please share id love some advice.

On another note, I’ve had quite a bit of down time, so I’ve been reading a lot. Rereading some of my favorites. Like the catcher in the rye. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve revisited that book. But I could use some new reading material. So If you like any book, let me know. I’m open to all genres!

Daily bumps…

Ahh sundays….

They’ve always been my least favorite day of the week ever since I could remember. I’m not exactly sure why, because I usually do the same things on the daily. I remember I hated sundays back in my school days because… Sunday meant Monday and Monday meant school,  but as adult I have no reason to really hate sundays.

Maybe it’s just because I feel like Sunday has a connotation of being a lazy day… 

today, I needed a little pick me up, the odd thing is, for someone who hated ice coffees of any kind before this pregnancy all I can drink these days coffee wise is iced coffees… it’s so strange and watered down. See what I mean about sundays? I’m over here blogging about ice coffees. Also the baby bump just keeps growing, and I’m convinced this little girl never sleeps while in my stomach. Constant kicks, moves, yawns, whatever all day. It’s nice though.

Anyway, today, I think I’ll start a plan for next week. Plan out what we need to do, etc. I’ll probably also make my way to the park with the baby and the puppy and then perhaps finish my never ending pile of laundry that I started earlier.

Have a good Sunday.

These past few months have been quite a few interesting ones for the history books. 

These past two days, we’ve seen so many changes, so many people uniting, so many people fighting peacefully for all the right things. 

I attended the women’s march in my city this morning and it was one moment in my life that I’ll never forget. It was so amazing watching a crowd of millions come together and passionately fight for the basic needs of all those who’ve come before, those in the present, and all those in the future. I feel like it was more than just about “women” and more about all of use having the opportunity to come together to make sure we all are treated equally.

Let’s not let hate breed hate. Let’s remember what’s important, and never stop being inspired to fight for it.




Tiny faces

Hey guys!

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve written a post and in reality I suppose it hasn’t been that long….

But today I thought I’d share with you some of the exciting things weve been up to! We had our ultrasound yesterday, we also found out the gender of baby #2! It was so incredible getting to see our little human. I literally cried.

The baby was in health, but just like every visit where o psych myself out I was a nervous wreck. They do want us to talk to the doctor on Friday because they saw something that could really be nothing but better safe than sorry. Although now I’ll be panicking about that because I wouldn’t be Des if I didn’t. 

Anyway, were filming our gender reveal and I’m definitely going to post it here if you guys would like to watch!! It’ll be up later tonight.




Stormy days…


It’s been a stormy last few days and usually I’d be living for it.

But for some reason it’s really gotten me down these last few days. I’ve tried everything to get myself going again and really trying to cheer up, but nothing has worked.

I love this weather which is why this is so puzzling to me. It’s just been really hard to try and find inspiration lately and that makes me sad.

Who knows. I’m writing up blog post ideas at the moment. But if there’s anything specific any of my readers want to read, please leave me a comment. I could really use the suggestions.

The “perfect” bump…

21 weeks pregnant this week. And I have to admit watching my body change so drastically this time around is harder than I thought it would be.

During my first pregnancy I didn’t start showing at all until around 25 weeks, which I know might not seem like such a difference… but it’s weird. Knowing your body can grow and change is so… terrifying in the best way.

The way I try to stay positive about the weight gain and aches is I try to remember why it’s happening. There’s a healthy, growing little human in there. The little baby rarely lets me forget they’re in there. S/he spends most of its days kicking any chance it gets.

Today is weird day. I just had to share some of my feelings and thoughts somewhere.

Hope you all have a great day.
