Our Shirts c/o Loved By Hannah and Eli Mia's Bracelets c/o Poppy Lane and Co

Loving: as excited as I am to meet baby brother (and not be pregnant anymore, ha ha!) I am really loving my time with Mia and Eric! Soaking up our time as a family of 3 as much as possible!!

Reading/Watching: I am beginning to think that I'll never find time to read a book for myself ever again!
But I do find the time to feed my Netflix addiction, oops! I'm alternating between Bachelor in Paradise and Scandal right now. Eric and I are still watching NCIS and loving it!! We also just watched Survivor (on Netflix) and it was pretty good. It made us so grateful for the brave men and women who are fighting for our freedom, stopping terrorist attacks and protecting our country, especially with 9/11 right around the corner!

Trying to: flip my baby. You guys, I had an appointment yesterday and I was so excited to see if my body has made any progress. I was happy to hear that my body has made progress...  but no thanks to baby boy! That little stinker is BREACH! And now I'm a ball of nerves and stress and I'm definitely praying that I don't go into labor until he's in position. I'm really trying to keep my cool and trust that everything will work out in the end, but this is all new territory to me (Mia was always in position/head down!) and things are about to get a lot more painful for me if I can't get him to flip on my own. So I would appreciate prayers as I continue to be diligent in the doctor's orders to try and get him in position, please and thank you!

Wishing: that I could win one of those amazingly huge giveaways on Instagram. I apologize now if you are one of my pregnant/new momma friends because I can't NOT tag you all in every single giveaway I find, ha ha! One day I WILL win, right?! Probably not, and I'll lose I'll my friends in the process for being so annoying, ha ha! #butseriously

Excited for: Fall! The smells, the treats, the decor, the food, etc! I'm definitely excited for cooler weather but we won't get that crisp, Fall air until winter time, ha ha (and I will be in heaven dealing with Fall-like weather during the winter instead of bitter cold and snow!) So as it gradually cools down here in Arizona (99 degrees is such a relief compared to the triple digits we've had for months!) I will try to make our home feel as festive and Fall-ish as possible (better get started now because I might be a sleep deprived zombie for all of October, ha!)

Sending prayers that baby boy does the hokey pokey and turns himself around :)
If you're watching Netflix, check out Narcos (it's about the drug cartel in Colombia...mainly Pablo Escobar)--it's pretty interesting.
Definitely looking forward to some Fall stuff coming soon! Especially now that I have to be at work haha

Also loving all the same shows as you - Bachelor in Paradise, NCIS and Scandal! Can't wait for the new fall shows to come back so soon!

Kiki Mincks said...

Praying for you! I know that's very scary but just remember if the big old "C" word has to happen, that thousands of women do it every day and you can too!
I've actually one two giveaways in the last month and a half. They were little, but it still made me feel like a million bucks. I hope you win one of the big ones! (;

Soak up all the family time you can girl. Those last days as a family of 3 are so, so precious. Praying he flips around soon!

Jenuine Happiness said...

Sending prayers and good vibes that he flips for you!

Allison Cooley said...

I'm totally guilty of Instagram giveaways too. Hopefully baby boy flips soon so the dr doesn't have to do it!

Evelina said...

Good luck getting that baby in position! And with those IG contests! hahah you deserve to win!

Praying baby boy flips!
Marcus was breech (boys are so stubborn), and I tried a version to flip him. While it wasn't the most comfortable thing it wasn't super terrible. Hang in there!!

Kimberly said...

Every time I have a giveaway I really really hope for one of my friends to win. Almost never happens tho :(

Mandie said...

Have I told you recently how frickin' adorable your daughter is?! She's so stinkin' cute. Cannot wait to see her cute little brother! :)

Brittany said...

I'll be praying for you, girl! I really hope it works out with as little pain as possible! I hate how much I loved Bachelor in Paradise. So trashy, so addicting. I also really love Scandal and can't wait for it to come back at the end of the month! BRING ON THE FALL WEATHER. Here in Indiana, we're dipping into the 60s around and I'm completely on board. Best time of the year!

My son was breech, did the version at 38 weeks and it was successful. However, he really liked the way he was before and flipped back24 hours later! Stinker! I was induced at 39 weeks, and he was successfully flipped again...good luck to you!

Oh my goodness I am so so jealous of your trip digits weather. Drooling just thinking about it. Good luck with your baby boy positioning himself better, I know everything will turn out okay!

Try putting your arms on the floor and knees up on a firm sofa or chair, so that the top of your belly is down and bottom higher. Do it for 20 seconds a day. Worked for me!
