Final Pregnancy Thoughts

well. . . today is the day!

depending on what time you are reading this, we probably have a new baby!

we have to be at the hospital early this morning to get ready for the scheduled c-section and if everything goes according to plan, he’ll be here sometime around 8am!

I’m equal parts excited and nervous. Pretty typical, right?!

I think I am most excited just to meet him. . .

And then figure out what his name is!

I’ve been ready to meet him for a while now. . .

Pregnancy was very different this time around.


I think I “popped” sooner with this pregnancy, which just led to feeling uncomfortable, especially with sleeping. It was also super tough to have to give up running so early when I was able to run almost to the end with Luke. Thankfully, I was still able to teach BODYPUMP until the end.

I also won’t miss being so hungry and needing to eat right. this. second. Like we were on our way to Panera for breakfast last weekend and literally like 5 minutes away, and I had to pull out some pretzels to eat on the way.

I will miss baby kicks. There is nothing else quite like it.


And while it would have been totally fine for him to come early, I am glad that he stayed put until today. We were able to get all the little house projects completed that we were hoping to, have everything ready to go for Christmas and be mentally prepared to have this baby!!

I am SO excited to see Luke become a big brother.


I am NOT ready for the lack of sleep newborn stage. I know Scott and I will survive and it will be fine, but man, I really really like sleep.


I’m already reminding myself that the days are long but the years are short. . . just look at my first baby who is almost 5!


I’ll obviously be soaking in baby snuggles and family time over the next few weeks, but I’ll try to pop in when I can to share some updates.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram for updates and cute baby pics. Smile
