Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Pregnancy Week 33: Baby #2


Friday morning I had my 32 week check-up with Dr Adamek. Everything went well and baby T's heart beat sounded loud, clear, and strong. He is currently measuring a week and a half ahead at 33 and 1/2 weeks; no wonder I feel little "piggy's" in my rib cage all the time. We should know our delivery date and time at my next appointment. Baby T will be here either on November 6th or the 13th. I will admit that I am starting to get a little antsy not knowing when he is coming. I plan on working all of October and the first two days of November before going on maternity leave. Energy wise, it fluctuates. For the past couple of days I have had more energy and am able to do more things around the house like wash an entire plastic bin of 6-12 month clothes and hang them all up in the closet even though I had to purchase 100 more hangers in order to do so. I have felt very productive in the nesting department this past week and only have a few more things to do before I can just relax. :] I'm still craving Kit Kat bars and heartburn comes and goes; I have found that peanut butter gives me the worst heartburn in the world than actually eating spicy food which doesn't make much sense to me. I cannot believe that in just a few short weeks baby T will be here. Trevor Dear and I are still figuring out the spelling of his first name and hope to nail it down soon. So far, baby T is 17 to 18 inches tall, weights in around 4 to 5 pounds, and is the size of a durian even though he is probably bigger than that, LOL! 

32 weeks, 1 day
32 weeks, 4 days
Sucky camera phone snap, but it will do.

Pregnancy Week 30: Baby #2

I have no energy these days. It's crazy to think that just four weeks ago I had all this energy and over the last couple of weeks it has gone out the window. I can barely make it through the day and it is definitely a challenge keeping up with my two and a half year old. Amari has loads of energy. He has been active since utero and lately it seems like his energy levels have been out of this world. Sometimes I wish he could give me some of his energy. I could really use it these days. I have to keep reminding myself that baby T is getting taller and fatter and in a few short weeks we will be meeting him. I cannot wait. Eight to nine weeks seems like a really LONG time, but it's not. The days may seem long but they fly bye.  I've just been insanely tired and my back is starting to ache a lot. Thankfully, Trevor Dear massages my back and swollen feet at the end of the day and I don't even have to ask him to do it. I actually look forward to it. There is nothing like getting a back massage and a foot massage every single night. It relaxes me and I'm actually able to fall asleep comfortably for a few hours before waking up to use the loo or change positions because Mr. T is kicking me in the ribs or doesn't like the position I'm lying in. I've been craving Kit Kat bars like no other... I don't even like them, but every time I eat one it is the best tasting thing in the world. I think I need to stock up on Halloween candy until this baby comes out. Trev and I decided on our delivery option. We are going with another c-section instead of trying for a VBAC. I have my 30 week check up on Wednesday morning and we will be scheduling our appointment and should have a date soon. So far, baby T is 15 to 16 inches tall, weights in around 2.5 to 4 pounds, and is the size of a cucumber! He also is growing a lot of hair! How do I know this? Because of the terrible heartburn I've been experiencing of course! =P


My muse at the moment. 
I'm usually not a fan of these delicious chocolate covered wafers, but right now I'm loving them!
