Still Pregnant....

March 13, 2017


Well, I've never been this pregnant. 40 weeks + 1 day. And I didn't get my record of having 3 babies all born on their due date. Sad face.

But really, it's fine. I'm feeling good and everyone in my house is starting to feel better (we've ALL been sick!). I'm off to the midwife today to get my membranes stripped (yikes!) and have a non-stress test and fluid level check. So wish me luck! I know this little lady is worth the wait....but if she could hurry up and come this week, that would be fabulous!

Thoughts on having TWO Girls....

March 1, 2017


I'm having the hardest time writing this post.....because I can't find the words to describe how I'm feeling (hello pregnancy hormones!)....so I hope someone out there understands what I'm trying to say.

When I was pregnant with Sadie we opted to not find out the gender until the big day. I often wondered what it would be like to have two boys.....would my relationship with Hudson change? I knew it would on some level but he was my little boy, and would having another boy change our special bond? 


When Sadie was born obviously my relationship with Hudson changed....he was no longer the baby of the family and he had to share his time with mommy with his sister. But he's still my main man. My favorite boy in the whole world. Similarly, Sadie is my main girl...and my favorite little girl in the whole world. So what I'm wondering is this: how will my relationship with Sadie change once her little sister arrives?

How will I make each girl feel special? Does that make sense? Having one boy and one girl, our relationships are similar, but different at the same time. And I think because I am SO CLOSE with my mom, it's hard for me to imagine having TWO girls. 

So am I crazy? I hope not. 

I'd love to hear from moms of two of the same gender how they figured things out. I'd especially love to hear from those of you who have three kids like me, where one is the opposite gender from the other two. 


I mean, obviously Sadie is so over me that it won't be a problem, right? Ha.
