30 weeks pregnant

I know that I published an update only 2 weeks ago, but I feel as if I have to celebrate this newest milestone in my pregnancy. Our weekly countdown has entered SINGLE DIGITS!!! Woooooooo!!!

Since my last post, baby has started to put on more white fat. She has gone up 1 inch and has gained 1 lb! All in 2 weeks! Her brain is also changing, her lanugo is disappearing, and her bone marrow is now making red blood cells. My darling.

Finally, I had a peek back at my 30 week post the last time that I was pregnant. In it, I compared my first pregnancy with my third (given that my second ended in a miscarriage). I love how I said that at first I only wanted one child, but upon giving birth that number changed to three. That still rings true today, and Geoffrey and I are pretty sure that this third child will be our last natural one- although, we are open to one day fostering children. Anyway, you can have a look back as well.

My due date is officially in 9 weeks and 6 days. Here we go!

28 weeks / 7 months pregnant / 3rd trimester

Hello, 3rd trimester!! I’m thrilled that you are here. I am feeling as big as a house and am getting more and more excited to meet our newest babe.

In the last few weeks, baby’s skin has been turning pinker. She has been practising smelling with her nose, and for the first time ever, she can now open her eyes! She can also taste now.

She has doubled in weight over the last month and now weighs over 2 lbs. She is around 15” long!

The first set of pictures were taken two weeks ago. Directly above are the ones that were taken when I was pregnant with Wilder. I recycled the same outfit and location for both. How things have changed.

24 weeks / 6 months pregnant

Baby girl weighs over 1 lb and is approximately 11.5 inches long. She now has a sense of touch and can tell the difference between light and darkness. Her face is fully formed- complete with hair!

I feel her kicks, punches, and rolls pretty much all day long. She is incredibly active and already reminds me of Remy in that way.

My big ole belly is only getting bigger and, well, older. My face and legs are swelling and even after four pregnancies the stretch marks are coming in hot! But who cares?! It’s all temporary.


We growing more excited by the day to meet you, little one.
💛

gender reveal

I am happy to announce that our fourth baby is a GIRL!!!!

This is our first time finding out the gender. We did so mostly for our children. Remy was asking if it was a girl or boy everyday, and Wilder was saying that he wanted a brother. We didn’t want to make them wait any longer, and wanted to be able to provide an answer. Hence this reveal!

We are over the moon. This is what Geoffrey and I have hoped and prayed for- not just the gender but more importantly that our little sweetie would appear healthy and active. To us, that outweighs the sex of the baby every time.

I am feeling beyond blessed these days. Have a wonderful week!

17 weeks/4 months pregnant

I am now 17 weeks pregnant!

Baby is as big as a large onion and is around 5″ long. His/her heartbeat is around twice as fast as mine, and fingertips will be formed within the next week or so.

My energy is coming back though it hasn’t returned quite all of the way. I am still throwing up but it isn’t as often. I don’t remember being sick for so long with any of my pregnancies before this- so I’m hoping that it’s just a really, really strong and healthy baby.

I’m still so blessed to be carrying him/her for this long. In two weeks, we will find out the gender for the first time ever! We are very excited.
