    3rd Trimester Must Haves

    This pregnancy has FLOWN by. I cannot believe I am at the end and it makes me so sad. The third trimester can be difficult but I’m here to share a few things that have helped me navigate and make it easier. Pregnancy Pillow – I resisted buying one this go around but ya’ll… it’s a game changer. I can comfortably sleep again, thank you Jesus. This one is super soft but also doesn’t break the bank. It was less than $40. TOTALLY WORTH IT! Charcoal Facial Mask – Ohhhh ya’ll, the struggle with hormonal acne is real. I depend on this mask 2-3 times a week to save my…

This really has been the best pregnancy so far, it’s been the least crazy and easiest on me personally (I can’t vouch for the rest of the fam, haha). I hate that it’s almost over! For all the women that are currently pregnant or had a baby, I want you to be gentle with yourselves. It’s a magical thing to grow another…

    Ya’ll! I am blown away! This pregnancy is flying by and every time I share that I am ___ weeks pregnant it just has me all in disbelief. I never expected ten years ago that I would be well into my fifth pregnancy. I seriously never even thought about my life as a “mom” and now that is all I think about. I love the chapter of life that changed me as a woman forever and I cannot believe that my oldest is seven years old. That means that I’ve basically been pregnant for the last 8 years since I’ve had them all so close in age. Derrek and I…
