My Biggest Pet Peeve Pregnancy Question


There are a LOT of annoying pregnancy questions, as we all know. Some of my favorites? “Are you sure there aren’t two in there?” Um yes, yes I’m sure. And the ultrasound technician was sure, as was my doctor, they’re not playing an elaborate hoax on me, “Oh hey it’s really twins! HAHAHAHA”. Just one baby thanks now bye.

Or “Are you done after this one?” Not sure yet, maybe let’s wait till this one is actually born to discuss this highly personal question I might not actually want to discuss with you in the first place (I get this one at least twice a day).

It’s The Little Things

Last week as you guys know I spent most of the week on the Maternity Ward at Saratoga Hospital, and as much as I LOVE it there (I really do), spending most of the week away from my family and dealing with the pain of kidney stones put me in a serious funk. One of the days though my Mom brought the younger two kids in for a quick visit, and I snapped a few pictures with my phone as they shared the “pink milk” she had gotten them as a special treat if they were “good” and weren’t loud (so they wouldn’t wake up the new babies).

This moment of pure unbridled toddler joy brought to me from a $2 Stewart’s Strawberry Milk…

oh and ps to the nurse on the ward who brought me the amazing brownie that one night? You are the best. xoxo
