For the last couple of weeks I have randomly tried on my non-maternity jeans just for fun. Well maybe not fun. More like torture because I couldn’t actually get them on! HA! 

Well this past Sunday I decided to try them on again. You know just for kicks. Well low and behold I was able to get them on, zip them up, and button them. I’m not saying they weren’t tight, because they were. But never the less I was so stinking excited. You don’t know how tired I am of wearing maternity pants. {Real tired of them in case you didn’t know.} 

I have my six week check-up today so hopefully I will get the go ahead to start “crunching” up a storm. I am looking forward to seeing my abs again one of these days!

p.s. Thanks Claire for noticing! You made my week!!


Apparently LB² has no real desire to meet his little family yet. And I’m cool with that. I guess.

I had my third weekly OB appointment this afternoon and have made no further progress in the areas of dilation or effacement. At least I went into today’s appointment without any expectations. My doctor asked me if I felt like I was already over due since I was past the date when LB was born. My OB knows me well apparently!

My OB will be heading out of town this Friday and will return the following Friday. So if I should go into labor in that time frame one of his colleagues will deliver baby g. I kind of hope it works out that my OB can actually deliver the baby. My OB last time did not deliver little buddy so I was kind of hoping it would work out this time. My friend goes to the colleague who would deliver me if my Dr. is out of town so really it’s no big deal if I have to have him. I have heard good things about him. It would be nice to have our pediatrician come check out baby g in the hospital as well. We’ll see how it plays out I guess.

We actually went ahead and scheduled a tentative induction date for March 2nd. Which is only twelve days away ya’ll. And that is if I don’t go into labor on my own before that.


Holy. Moly. 

I can’t wrap my brain around what it will be like. I’m still super excited but slightly anxious about the transition for me, for little buddy, and for our family in general. 

Please be praying that I handle the transition well. I know it’s going to be hard. I get that. Please pray that God will give me wisdom, patience(with myself!), rest, strength, and guidance. I’m going to need all the help I can get.

01. I just noticed on my live traffic feed that someone from Savannah, Georgia stopped by my blog. It had to have been Paula herself!

02. Is there such a thing as drinking too much orange juice? In the evenings I crave it like it’s going out of style. I like it with a small amount of crushed ice, you know in case anyone wanted to pour me a glass………..

03. I had to re-tire my old timex sports watch today. I know, sadness. Actually it was my brothers old watch that he so kindly donated to me eons ago. It has been messing up a lot lately so Hubs got me a new one for Valentine’s day.  I’m gearing up to wear it lots during “Operation lose this baby weight because I refuse to buy  “in between” clothes.”

04. Yes, I just used quotes inside of quotes. Not sure that’s really allowed but you know it’s my blog and all.

05. I just had some peanut butter atop some cinnamon graham crackers. Only the best snack ever. Don’t tell little buddy’s allergist. He would literally have my hide. Don’t worry I waited till LB was in bed to eat my snack and then I placed my PB jar back up on a really high shelf.

06. I wish this darn cramping I have been having would either translate into consistent contractions or stop already!!

07. My feet kind of hurt from my pedicure today. It is probably due to the fact that the pedicure man used a pumice stone on an almost healed cut my toe was sporting. Can you say ouch?!?!?! {If my friend D hadn’t have been with me I might have actually cried out in pain!}

08. I’m wearing Hubs OU t-shirt because quite frankly it’s been sometime since I could wear any of my own. And sometimes you just want to wear a comfy t-shirt.

09. Do I remember what it’s like to take care of a newborn? Will it all come back to me? I sure hope so. Maybe I should go read up on how to care for a newborn just in case my memory fails me………..


Welcome to my little corner of the world. Nothing too serious here for you to read about. Just the comings and goings of my day to day life. I blog about the trials of being a military wife, tales of my role as “Mommy Dear”, recipes I love, my DIY projects, and our home renovations. Happy reading!
