You want to know something weird? I should still be pregnant. For another week at least. My original due date was January 22nd. But here we are, a week before my due date with a 2 week old baby! All “thanks” to high blood pressure, just like my pregnancy with Knox. And let me tell you, that’s not the only thing that caused deja vu to my pregnancy with Knox.

“Buh Bye Baby.”

Dear Knox,

I’ve said a lot of goodbyes in my day. Before you were born, I lived in a different city every year for 5 years, and had to say bye to a lot of good friends as I moved away. Not to mention the tears that come when we have to say bye to your grandparents, aunts and uncles every time a visit comes to an end.

20 Thoughts that go through your mind during a 20 week pregnancy ultrasound

Last week Stuart and I had our big 20 week ultrasound for baby #2! I already shared about some emotions that occur during pregnancy, but that’s only part of it! There are so many thoughts running through your mind during that quick 30 minutes, and I thought I’d share some with you! 

  1. Good thing this is my husband sitting next to me, cause she wants me to roll my pants down pretty darn low.

Boymom round 2!

Yep, I’m pregnant! And yep, just last week we found out that I’m remaining in the boymom club! [For now ;)]

There are so many emotions that go through your mind as you walk into [and out of] the ultrasound room when you find out the gender of your baby. But our rollercoaster of pregnancy emotions didn’t begin there. This has been a TOUGH pregnancy, friends. Let’s

Knox.

I’ve been meaning to post this for weeks, but new mommy syndrome doesn’t allow much time for blogging…but better late than never right? :) 

Three weeks ago, our baby boy, Knox Jeffrey Grandlienard, entered our lives…a week and a half early! He was born on Christmas Eve at 7:54pm, weighing 7lbs 13oz and 20.5in long. It was one of the most difficult days of my life, but the end definitely justified the means.

Dear Baby Grand // 36 Weeks

Dear Baby Grand

Dear Baby Grand,

There’s only around 4 weeks until your Daddy and I get to meet you! I can’t believe how fast this time has gone. Although I am going to miss your kicks and movements safe inside my womb, I cannot wait to see exactly what (and who!) you look like. Will you have dark hair like your Dad, or blonde hair like me?

It’s Been a While…

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been slightly MIA from blogging lately. There’s a very good reason for that. 

NESTING. 

It’s serious, guys. I was a little critical of what exactly went into the whole nesting “thing,” but it’s for real. I am NOT one of those people who normally loves organizing or cleaning, but it’s like someone else has taken over my body and all I want to do is organize, clean, and prepare our living space for our little man.

Baby Grand is Growing // 28 Weeks

28 weeks

Ok, so evidently THIS WEEK is the beginning of my third trimester. One of my apps told me that week 26 is the beginning of the third trimester…AND if you do the math with 40 weeks being full term, 26 weeks would be the start. But oh well, I’m officially in it now! :)

I know I keep saying that Baby Grand and my belly bump are getting huge…but you guys, it’s like REALLY huge this week.

Baby Grand is Growing // 23 Weeks

23 Weeks

You guys, I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is going! I feel like I post a weekly baby post like every day. Not that I mind thought, cause I’m already SO ready to meet this little person!! 

This week is a milestone for Baby, because he/she is FINALLY an entire pound in weight! Crazy to think how much Baby still has to gain, but I feel like hitting 1 lb is kind of a big deal.

Baby Grand is Growing + September Goals

22 Weeks

Well, I think I’ve officially entered into the stage of looking for sure pregnant…as opposed to maybe pregnant or maybe just chubby. It’s still a weird kind of mental switch to change the thought of a growing mid-section to being a good thing, instead of a sign of needing to diet ASAP. But thankfully, those intensifying kicks remind me that as my tummy grows, so does a lil babe inside!
