24 weeks

So, hey there! It has been ages since I’ve written something here. I had this intention of what my summer was going to be, and then we were taken for quite the loop when finding out days before my husband’s 30th birthday that we would be expecting. I have to be honest, I wasn’t exactly thrilled the first few days. I realize that the reaction isn’t what people would envision for someone in my situation, but I want to put it out there because that was my reality. I am such a planner, and this was not supposed to be in the cards for at least a little while. Not only that, I got really overwhelmed about the idea of being a mother. I have never really been around babies, how could I possibly be a good mother? Yeah, I freaked out. But then I took a big breath, put my big girl panties on, and figured out how to go forward.

That meant going HAM on what all of this was going to entail. I embraced what God had in store for us, and accepted, and then I read. I spent my days reading about pregnancy. How the baby grows and what changes to expect physically and emotionally. After I did that, I started to read up on what to actually do with the bundle of joy. WTF was an umbrella stroller?? Heck, even the basic, what do you need for a diaper change??

So instead of updating my blog, I just threw myself into this. Youtube was super helpful to start off with. I can’t even tell you how many of the CloudMom videos I watched. The lady has 5 kids, she must know what she is talking about! Videos led into Pinterest, and mommy blogs, and now a much more confident, excited mom to be!

I’ll be documenting here things I read up about along the way and how everything is working, in addition to all the other interests I had pre baby. Less than a month to go, cannot wait!
