  1. What a nice post to start off your favorite season! I hope these last couple of weeks are equally enjoyable! We’re hoping to start a family soon so I’d love to read any of your new mom updates!

      Thank you! Good Luck with starting a family! I know it can be a long journey for some. I will definitely be updating as we get closer to the due date and on how it goes with a newborn. I don’t know what my time will be like after Baby H gets here, but I will do my best to keep y’all updated!

  2. Well to answer as many questions as I can (as a fellow parent whose birthed 2 kids), it’s normal to have pains and it’s normal to have breathing issues as your belly gets bigger and bigger. I used to sleep on my side and with extra pillows. During my second pregnancy, I worked long hours and always had back pain, a back massage once a week really helped with this and got me through the work days. Consult your doctor on anything that concerns you though. I also nursed both children. Make sure you have some nipple cream because you’re going to need it while you learn how to nurse. Yes, they will loose a little weight and it make seem at times that they are not getting enough food. Keep nursing, even if your dry, this is help you produce more milk for the baby. Your body will produce exactly what your baby needs. Keep going and don’t give up. nursing can be frustrating and rewarding all at the same time.

      Thank you! I do plan on breastfeeding if everything goes to plan. I have two small tubes of nipple cream that were gifted to me at my baby shower. I’m not sure how quickly I’ll go through them so I haven’t bought any more yet LOL.
      Thanks again!
