bee’s here!

Hi all! Just a quick update to let you know that our sweet little Bee arrived last night! I can’t wait to share photos and the birth story when I get my bearings, but in the mean time, enjoy a few guest posts from my sweet blogger friends over the next few weeks and I’ll pop in to share updates as I get a chance! (Mama and baby are both healthy little horses!)

Thanks a million for the well wishes and sweet tweets. You guys are amazing!

psst: A huge thanks to the awesome Betsy King for the photo above. She documented our entire home birth in the most beautiful way – such a sweet gift!

I’ll be honest – changing your plan nearly 3/4 of the way through your pregnancy can be unnerving, but it was a must for me. I’m sharing my story in our latest Mom.me episode and would love to hear your stories, as well…

Hi friends! Hope you’re enjoying a week filled to the brim with The Ultimate Registry! I wanted to pop in to share a super honest post I wrote over on Babble Voices this week – Why I’m Not Having a Diagnostic Ultrasound.

Have any of you mamas had similar experiences, and how did you decide how to proceed? I’d love to hear your thoughts and advice – it’s all such unchartered territory!

my pregnancy story // dealing with anxiety.

Happy weekend, friends! It’s been a jam-packed week here, so I’m looking forward to enjoying some relaxing time with family and friends, including a fun getaway to a restaurant tucked away inside a boxcar train! So much fun, right?

In the mean time, I’m leaving you with Episode 2 of my video series, Prepping for Baby. We’re talking first trimester anxiety this week and I’d love to hear from you guys – were you super stressed out those first 12 weeks? Anything you did to cope? Feel free to visit Mom.me and spill it; I know we could all use a bit of stress relief every now and then!
