    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

28 weeks

28 WeeksFriends, I am now in my third trimester!

This pregnancy has certainly has been a roller coaster. Never again will I want to repeat weeks 4-18. Throwing up everyday is not my thing, nor is neglecting work and staying in bed. What made it worse is that I still had dogs to walk and a house to run, given that my husband is only home for about 2 waking hours a day. I was sick and on my own. Good riddance to those days!

28Weeks-2Once I was into my second trimester, I began to feel like myself again. Most importantly, I could return to my store and the gym. I finally returned to a productive routine. Waking up, walking the dogs, working, going into town to mail and deliver items, going to the gym, coming back home, walking the dogs, working, cleaning the house, napping, walking the dogs, making supper, working, falling into bed, and finally, seeing my husband around 10 pm. This schedule has continued until now, and I hope that I can maintain it until my due date. 

PoppySure I had HG, placenta previa, have gained weight, a shoe size, and stretch marks, but now, I am feeling so great. Above all, baby appears to be healthy and even measuring 3 days bigger than its due date! (Here he/she is at the 27 week scan.) People in general are so supportive, and rather than worrying about if and when we should have children, I now have one less decision to make. Now that I am definitely attending school this coming fall, I believe that 2016 will be so bright. If this was my only gift this holiday season, I would be more than happy with that.

  3. I’m glad that morning sickness didn’t last long for you. I had morning sickness too. It did make working and commuting much harder. Nice routine that you have. Lots of walking is good.
