I have less than a month until my due date. My head is spinning y’all. How did the time fly by this fast?! I’ve had about a million (not really) people ask me if I’m so ready to have this baby… Here’s the thing, I’m not. I’m perfectly content with where she’s at. It’s the one time in life that I know without a doubt where she’s at, at all times lol. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t be more excited to meet her, but I want to meet her in God’s perfect timing, so she can stay cooking as long as she needs to.
My apologies for the lack of blog posts lately, life has been more than a little crazy. I’ve been updating my Instagram every day and keeping you up to speed about what’s happening in my life there. I also uploaded a new YouTube video this past week, so if you missed it, head over and check out my winter morning skincare routine.
This past week’s episode of Hello Bump went live: Episode 25: Week 31. We Teach Breech. Matt and I find out that baby girl is officially in breech position and what that means for our birth plan. I gotta be honest, I was so disappointed when I realized that she was breech. I always envisioned a vaginal delivery and never dreamt I’d have to be a candidate for a c-section. I don’t fear a c-section because of the surgery involved, I fear it because my doctor and I want to avoid the additional scar tissue to my abdomen. If you’ve read my endometriosis story, then you know I’ve already had two laparoscopies. Now that I’ve had a couple different ultrasounds, tried every homeopathic breech remedy out there and talked to tons of people, I’ve come to accept this has my birth plan. If she turns, I’m going to have to reprogram my brain again, lol.
This morning, Episode 26: Week 32. The Dreams went live. In this week’s episode, we chat about our maternity photo shoot and prep for Thanksgiving.
We’ve had a busy past couple of weeks with Matt’s Timeless schedule, family visiting, my LA baby shower, Christmas cards and Christmas prep. As we get closer to Christmas, life is starting to slow down… Thank goodness. I need some quiet time with my feet propped up by the fire while we watch Christmas movies.
Now for the nursery… I’m still trying to finalize my decisions. Y’all, I still haven’t made a decision on that dang wall! We did paint it a gorgeous shade of grey that looks so nice with the white trim. Matt painted the floor lamp and installed the chandelier. We have the crib and dresser/changing table in place. The first rug I ordered just wasn’t the right fit, so we sent it back. I ordered a second rug and it’s on backorder until the beginning of January, and so I also ordered a third rug option. Our glider and ottoman are scheduled to arrive this week from Monte Design and I can’t wait to see them! Our crib bedding and drapes are being finalized hopefully early this week. It’s so exciting to see it all come together.
I’ll be posting a full nursery tour once the room finally is finished. Leave a comment below and let me know if you’d rather see a tour on my YouTube Channel or on the blog.
