My Second Trimester

Sunday marked 28 weeks along which means I have entered into my third trimester and my due date is 12 weeks from now…I’m sorry WHAT?! For me, my first trimester went by SO slow. I remember every single day felt like it was dragging and I couldn’t wait to find out our gender or for my bump to really pop or to say goodbye to first trimester symptoms. Then my second trimester finally came (which is the longest of the 3) and during it it felt like it was pretty long but now that it’s over I just can’t wrap my head around telling people that I’m in my third trimester…

20 Week Pregnancy Update

Can ya’ll believe I’m 20 (well now 21 almost 22) weeks along?! That’s HALF WAY! It’s crazy because in the moment I feel like I’ve been and will be pregnant forever – but then when I think about how I just have to do the time I’ve already done once more until I get to meet our BABY, I feel like it’s flying…

It’s A Girl!!

The news is out!! Yesterday morning we got to find out that the sweet babe growing inside of me is a little girl! Honestly, I am still in shock and there is a huge part of me that doesn’t believe it!! I keep staring at the ultrasound images we got trying to figure out if it’s really a for sure thing. Especially with it being so early, it just seems crazy that they were able to tell us our gender at only 13 weeks

My First Trimester + Q&A

As my first trimester comes to a close, (that is crazy by the way!! I swear you blink and it’s over!), I’ve started to reflect on the changes I’ve gone through and what I’ve personally experienced. I know everyone’s pregnancies are SO different, but I wanted to share mine so far and some of the struggles and things that have helped me! Warning: this is going to be a very long post AND have a Q&A at the end so brace yourself…

How We Told Our Family I’m Pregnant (video!)

Well…I’m sure that by now all of you know that Al and I are expecting our first baby Lang!! We found out in the middle of the night…at about 12:30am and the next day I knew I had to tell our immediate family – I could’t keep it in! I’m so thankful that my husband supports and deals with my eagerness  Our best friends found out they were pregnant actually on the same exact day we found out but last year, and they got everyone’s reactions on video! I always thought that was so special to have and to be able to look back on so since seeing their videos I always knew I wanted to do the same when we got pregnant…
