Hi friends. I just wanted to drop by and share that I am still here and still pregnant. I have completely dropped the ball on the pregnancy updates as you probably know. I have been keeping track of my symptoms in my journal as I’ve been doing most of my pregnancy but have completely stopped taking bump shots. I honestly just cannot seem to remember to take them.

Just to be completely transparent with you guys, most days I don’t get out of my pajamas. I don’t have many clothes that still fit me and since I am not working before the baby comes this seems to be okay. I have a few outfits that I wear when we go to the doctors or church, but that’s really the only places I’ve been going lately lol. When I do actually get dressed, I always forget to take a picture before changing back into my pajamas.

Anyway, now that I spent half this blog post explaining my pajama situation haha but that explains where the pregnancy updates have gone. I plan to take a bump shot tomorrow when I get dressed for my 34 week doctor’s appointment and will update you guys on how weeks 30-34 have been. (Everything is still going well so I am very thankful.)

In other news, blogging is something that I seem to think about multiple times a week but then it seems to always be pushed to the back-burner. I am in full-on baby preparation mode and it seems to be just about all I think about. (Just ask my husband! 😉 ) I think that might be part of why I haven’t had the motivation to blog much too. I feel like once I have the baby there is going to be so much to write about because I am so much better at writing about things once I’ve already gone through them. Being in the middle of such a life changing event is all-consuming and super hard to really put into words how I’m feeling about it.

I also really want to write a blog post about how the past year has been because we are creeping in on me having been a stay-at-home wife for almost one whole year. I’m just not sure if I can completely put into words how this past year has affected me. I still feel like I am somewhat in the middle of it and won’t be able to really form my opinions on it until I am not longer a stay-at-home wife and am a stay-at-home mom. I just can’t believe that everything is going to change so much so soon. I’m a little bit scared but mostly just so incredibly excited.

Welp I think that’s just about enough rambling for today. I haven’t written a completely random post like this in a while and I hope you guys don’t mind. I’ve just been thinking about this space a lot and wanted to drop in and let you guys know what’s been going on. Look for a post soon about the last month of my pregnancy if that’s something you’re interested in. I am determined to get that one up this week! Thanks for reading if you’ve made it this far!

    Dear Ashley:
    You are absolutely right — “once [you] have the baby there is going to be so much to write about.”
    Except there will be absolutely no time to do any writing!
    The doctor who delivered both of our grandchildren (an old family friend) said it takes about three people to look after a baby. That would be you, your mom, and Tommy. And Florence (the doctor) was absolutely right! It will be just about all you can think about!
    So, you have been warned. 😉
    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    I don’t blame you one single bit for staying in your PJ’s as much as possible! I worked up until 38 weeks (probably pushed myself a little further than I should have) and by the time that final week came I couldn’t fit into any of my shoes or most of my clothes, they’re lucky I didn’t come in my sweats to work. You have so much to look forward to when baby arrives, can’t wait to see some updates! 🙂

      Ah you’re the best! Thank you for the encouragement! I love hearing from mamas who have been there before me. Glad to know I’m not the only one when it comes to the PJ’s 😉

    I am growing out of almost all my clothes over here, too – it seems like! And I so don’t want to spend a ton of money on new clothes unless I know I’ll be wearing them post-partum, Glad to hear that your pregnancy is still going well. You’re getting so close ! Motherhood is a great adventure and I’m wishing you all the best!!

      I know exactly what you mean! I also don’t want to spend the money on clothes – especially since I can technically get by without buying them! So that means living in PJ’s is seems, oh well!
