Panicking. TWO KIDS?!

 

Happy Monday!
I am so grateful for long weekends and short work weeks. You guys, if sister comes as early as Boston did then we only have 4 weeks left!
Every night before I fall asleep I seriously spend like an hour thinking about how crazy life is going to be when sister comes. I think about all of the things I still have to do to get ready for her. Deep clean the entire house, get all of the baby stuff out, finish/finalize my sub plans, I need to get all of the things ready to relicense for teaching. I seriously feel like the to-do list is never ending and I am starting to freak out. I am getting so nervous! Then I also think, what if my water breaks in the middle of the night and no one answers the phone? What do we do with Boston? Do I just have Braden stay home and I drive myself to the hospital? Do I go banging on all of the neighbors doors that I don't even know???
I kind of hope that sister takes her time and doesn't come early. I'm not ready! But I also know that I never will be ready. I wasn't this nervous about having Boston. Shouldn't I be less nervous the second time around? Or maybe I know how hard having a newborn is and that is why I am way more nervous this time.

Today I have questions for you. Basically all I remember about the newborn stage is the LACK OF SLEEP. I don't do well with little to no sleep. And this time I can't just nap whenever sister does because I also have Boston to take care of. I feel like I can deal with anything but the sleep is going to be hard. Is she going to cry and wake up Boston every hour in the middle of the night? We have a small two bedroom townhouse and Boston isn't a heavy sleeper. That stresses me out!

Anyway, on with the questions.
1. What is the most challenging part about going from one to two kids?
2. What is the BEST part about going from one to two kids?

Also, remember this shirt that I got from PinkBlush? I loved it so much that I had to get another one! The one I got actually isn't a maternity top but it totally works! And I'm excited that I'll still be able to wear it when I'm not pregnant! I am loving the laced up/crisscross tops and over-sized tees/sweaters trend that is going on right now so this will be perfect! This crisscross top also comes in a few different colors. Do I want them all? Yes. Will I get them all? Maybe. Ha.

34 Week Bumpdate


How far along: 34 weeks

How big is the baby: The size of a pineapple

Gender: A girl!

Sleep: It's fine. But I really just want to be able to sleep on my stomach again.

Cravings: Nothing! I really wanted to have a craving.

Exercise: It's getting hard. I still am trying to work out at least 3 times a week but I am starting to get contractions so I am really having to take it easy.

Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah. I'm getting to the point where I am just going to have to rotate between the same 5 outfits.

Movement: She is moves a ton! Especially at night.

What I'm looking forward to: Honestly, I'm looking forward to spending these last few weeks with Boston. I am getting pretty nervous about how life is going to change after sister comes.

Best moment this week: Boston was staring at my belly and said "sister, come out!". Ha. I hope that means he is excited. Although, I really don't know how much he truly understands.

Feeling: My back pain is getting worse and that is hard. I am also starting to get contractions, not too often but when they come they hurt pretty bad. So I am starting to have to take things a little slower and take more breaks.

Lashes for Days

8 weeks ago I shared a new product I was going to start using called Careprost. My friend from high school, Kambree, sells it. I actually knew a few people that had used it and had amazing results so I was really excited to try it out. It takes 16 weeks to see the full results. I have been using it for 8 weeks and wanted to share my results with you so far because I am seriously impressed!
I can’t express how important it is to take before and after pictures. I knew my eyelashes looked longer but I didn’t realize how much longer they really were until I compared the two pictures.
I am wearing the same mascara in both pictures. Also, don’t mind the before picture. I wasn’t smiling and my eyes really show that, ha.
The top picture is from 8 weeks ago and the bottom picture is from this morning!
If you are interested in trying it out, which I highly recommended, contact Kambree here.
