BABY JOURNEY

When we decided to start trying for our own little Tupta tot back in September 2017, we had no idea of the journey we were embarking on. We've experienced a lot of peaks and valleys along the way and as painful as it can be, I am so thankful for this time of waiting. If you are experiencing your own baby journey, my heart is with you and even though I may not know your name or who you are, I pray for you every single day. I hope by sharing this part of our journey and my heart, you know that you are not alone.

journey to motherhood

I wrote this letter to our daughter Eleanor after she was born so that she knew everything that went into her coming into the world. In case I forget any detail someday (or have moved onto Heaven), I wanted her to be able to read back on this and know the answer to the question, […]

It feels a bit surreal sitting down to write this post. It’s something I’ve thought through in my head and desired to do for nearly three years but if you know our journey (you can watch a video on that HERE or read about it HERE, HERE, or HERE), you know that wasn’t part of […]

Baby Journey

It has been just over one year since I shared THIS blog post explaining our baby journey. It has been an ongoing battle since then including loss and many more months of negative pregnancy tests. It’s a journey though that I’m extremely grateful to be fighting through, especially with Stephen by my side. One of […]

Experiencing Loss

April was one of the most exciting months ever for us! Not only was I leaving the corporate world but after a year and a half+ of negatives, we finally received our first ever positive pregnancy test (the same week I was leaving my job!). I don’t think I’ll ever forget that moment, I’ve never […]

Infertility Gift

This post contains affiliate links. A couple of months ago, I received a gift that changed mine and Stephen’s life. It was from Rhya, who is one of the closest people I have to a sister. I practically grew up on the farm with her and her sister, Dakota. They have always and will forever […]

Truth be told, it feels a bit surreal to be sitting down writing this post. I really didn’t think I’d ever have a reason to do this but as month after month go by, we believe there is purpose behind this pain and sharing about this has been weighing heavily on my heart. It’s not […]

Although Ellie girl has been with us for 9 weeks now, I wrote this post a few days before she arrived and still wanted to share. Some of you might not care to read this after the fact, but I probably will want to look back on this later on! Here are my answers to […]

Maternity clothes

About three years ago when I was packing up my closet to prepare for our move from Phoenix to South Carolina, I realized that I had so many clothes that I didn’t wear and I basically wore the same pieces on repeat. At that point, I got rid of so much stuff and decided I […]

What to pack in a hospital bag

Almost three weeks ago our little Eleanor was making her way into the world. Goodness, time is flying… It hurts my heart a bit. Ironically enough, the 2.5 days that we spent in the hospital felt like they took forever. I think that was just because we wanted to get home so badly (despite how […]

Elvie

I tend to do a lot of research and question asking when it comes to buying pretty much anything. Breast pumps though, well, really most baby products, I feel like was on a whole other level for me. I will say though, once I learned about the Elvie from a great friend of mine, the […]

Pregnant Resource Vault

Birth Class We can’t recommend this enough! Specifically Lauren’s class. She typically does these in person but because of COVID she revamped everything to make it online so even though she’s based out of Northern VA, we were able to do this with her which was amazing. The course is broken up into four, three-ish […]

Two weeks ago tomorrow, Stephen and I were sleeping in the house I grew up in when I awoke to multiple messages (mostly from friends stationed or deployed across the globe) asking if Stephen was okay. “Yeah, he’s was sleeping right next to me, what’s up?” I quickly learned that there had been a fatal […]

How do you feel physically, emotionally, and mentally? Physically, I felt (and still feel) fantastic. My energy was really high and even working out I felt strong and capable. I started feeling pelvic floor pressure around the start of the second trimester so I modified my workouts accordingly and started to see a physical therapist […]

Top Choices from our Baby Registry

Hi! Now that we’ve surpassed the 20 week mark with this pregnancy, I’m sharing with you all our baby registry! In my typical fashion, I researched this stuff a ton. I surveyed over a dozen of my friends, read reviews, researched many different options, etc. We had some specific goals in mind when creating this […]

A couple of days ago on Instagram I asked for your input on maternity clothes. I shared that I want to try to avoid maternity specific clothes as much as I possibly can. I know that with pants for example, that can get pretty tricky so I have bought one pair that will last me […]

Hi! Now that I’ve shared my recap of the first trimester with you all, I figured I’d put together a post that includes all of my first trimester essentials. Just a reminder, everyone’s pregnancy is different! These are just things that helped me so much in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy or made it […]

First Trimester Recap
