Hello Bump: Baby Lanter Gender Reveal

Hello Bump Podcast Gender Reveal Episode he or she angela lanter hello gorgeous

The wait is OVER!  We’re finally revealing Baby Lanter’s gender today on Hello Bump Podcast.  Honestly, I’m just really proud of myself for keeping this secret as long as I have, lol.  I’ve slipped to so many people when talking in person, so I had to try REALLY hard to watch my words when talking on Insta-stories.

You can listen to the episode now on iTunes, Stitcher or just click below and listen directly from this post:

I have so much adorable baby stuff I can’t wait to show y’all!  Be sure to follow me on Instagram here and also Hello Bump Podcast on Instagram here, because I post videos and photos to our stories to show the new baby products as they come in.

While we’re on the topic of baby products, since a lot of you miss my Insta-stories (they expire in 24 hours) would it be something you would be interested in if I kept a page of my incoming products I talk about on Insta-stories here on my blog?  I talk about a lot of different beauty products, baby items, recipes, etc. on my Insta-stories and I’m wondering how many of you would like to see me figure out a way to include that info here on the blog?  That way it’s easily accessible after the story expires on Instagram.  If this is something you’d like to see me do, please leave a comment below and let me know.  I want to be sure that I’m making everything as easy as possible for my Gorgeous Girls.

I posted these photos last night to take a poll about what y’all thought I was having.  I personally love the gender guessing game based on the way the mama is carrying, so I thought I’d let my Gorgeous Girls in on the fun.

Hello Bump Recap: 8 & 9

This week has been one of those weeks. If you follow me on Insta-stories, then you know why this post is late… My computer crashed.  And it was totally my fault.  I had the bright idea to clean fly guts from the area where my screen meets the keyboard with Windex.  The cleaning was a success, but I unfortunately burnt out my monitor.  Talk about frustrating.  I have now been laptop-less for a week and I feel like I’m going crazy lol.

On to the podcast!  Monday we released episode 8 in which we’re covering week 13 of pregnancy.  Depending on who you ask, second trimester begins on week 13 or week 14.  We were so excited at the prospect of second trimester, so we took the liberty of believing we crossed that landmark at week 13.  This week, we had our second trimester OB appointment and ultrasound.  Matt believes he saw the gender in the ultrasound and the ultrasound tech confirmed that she knew the gender…  But we have to wait for my blood results to come back before we find out for sure.  Personally, I love the gender guessing game.  Using old wives tales to try to figure out the gender is just all in good fun…  I think it sorta drives Matt crazy though, lol.

We also chat about the Zika virus threat and prenatal vitamins.  Then I uncover my weird obsession with polygamy based shows…  I just so badly want to understand the psychology behind the lifestyle.  Just to clarify, not the disgusting marriage of underage girls to old men.  I’m talking along the lines of the tv show, Sister Wives.  It’s such a foreign concept to me and something that I would never be able to do.

Listen here to episode 8:

Next up we have episode 9 which is week 14…  So we are officially official with the second trimester claims!  I rate my first trimester as a F, but Matt thinks it’s not as bad I do.  Easy for him to say!

I’m also taking you through our move process and our hectic schedule leading up to our vacation in Florida.

Do you have any travel traditions with your hubby?  I talk about our Facetime tradition and how much more safe it makes me feel.

We also chat about my first flight since being pregnant and the precautions we took.  In case you’re interested, these are the travel compression socks I wore on the flight.  I feel like they really did make a difference in my flight experience.

Also, anyone else love Raising Cane’s and Zaxby’s as much as I do?!

I wanna hear how you shared your pregnancy news with your friends and family!  Leave a comment below and tell me your story!

Listen here to episode 9:

As you may have noticed, we did not upload yesterday, on our regularly scheduled day due to the holiday.  There will be a brand new episode of Hello Bump available tomorrow morning per our usual upload schedule.  🙂

Hello Bump Podcast Episodes 4 & 5

Hopefully, you have been joining us on this pregnancy journey via Hello Bump Podcast!  Last week we chatted about episodes 2 and 3.  I recapped the feelings I experienced in weeks 6, 7 and 8 of my first trimester.

This week we covered week 9 in episode 4 and week 10 in episode 5.  For those of you with iPhones, you can easily download and listen to our shows using the Podcasts app via iTunes.  If you have an Android, we are also available on the Stitcher app.  And if you don’t have either, you can listen to the episodes directly from my blog posts.

Episode 4: Week 9 “Vaginal Cannon and Tasting Breastmilk” has me exploring body image and my own sex drive during pregnancy.  I don’t think I can get much more personal with y’all at this point…  Oh but I will in the very near future, just you wait.  LOL!  In this episode, we also talk about Matt’s blood work results and his gene mutations.  After going through this process, it leaves me wondering if everyone does this Counsyl testing and if it just gives parents reason for unnecessary concern?  I know it’s great for recognizing true genetic issues, but when it’s not something potentially life threatening, is it worth the fear we experience waiting for the genetic counselor to determine our risks?

Another topic from week 9 that still plagues me to this very day is the illusive “Listeria” threat.  I’ve seen several women whose doctors have said that they’ve never in their career treated a patient for listeria.  It makes me also wonder if we’re overly cautious about the foods we eat?  Can you tell that this mama just REALLY wants a hot dog right now?!



Episode 5: Week 10 “The Name Game” has us chatting about all the different methods for guessing the gender.  I want to know…  Have any of you had luck or found one theory over the other to be more effective?  I’ve seen a lot of believers in the Ramzi Theory, the heart rate count and the forehead slope.  Wondering what y’all think about these!

The task of naming our baby has been the most daunting to date.  Here’s the problem: no matter what name you choose, there will always be someone in your life who doesn’t like it for one reason or another.  As of now, we don’t plan on releasing the baby’s name until after the birth.  We receive enough feedback from family and close friends, so we don’t need to invite additional feedback on the name into our lives, ya know?  I honestly think that keeping the name a secret until the birth is the smartest way to go, that way you don’t have any opinion’s weighting in.  I believe that your child is God’s very personal gift to you.  He only tasks the parents with the privilege of selecting a name, yet so many people feel that it is their right to give opinions about it.  Naming your baby is a very personal, very special thing, so I think you should keep it that way.



This past weekend, Matt felt like I really popped.  So now that I have a true bump, I’m struggling to dress myself.  NOTHING FITS ME, Y’ALL.  I know, I know…  This is normal and totally a part of it.  But again, I’m just being totally human and fessing up to how I’ve been feeling this week.  I did some new maternity pieces in today so I’m excited to have some new things to style the bump with!

Here’s a couple of looks I’ve put together this week:
