When it comes to being pregnant, I really cannot complain. I would probably rate my overall experience an 9 / 10. And most of the negative experiences were emotional vs. physical for me. Since I am nearing the last few weeks of my pregnancy (3 more to go, to be exact), I thought it would be fun to share the good, bad and unexpected when it came to being pregnant for me.
I wanted to share a few ideas of the unexpected gifts we loved receiving before baby and that will hopefully help anyone that has someone expecting in their lives! Note: this list doesn't include any items we registered for. I wanted to share the truly unexpected or requested items!
Here we are...35 weeks pregnant and it’s starting to hit me that this baby is coming SOON! I’ve had such a great pregnancy (healthy, happy and not too miserable), so I’m kind of sad knowing this phase will be over soon.
I cannot believe it's that time...I've officially started to pack my hospital bag! At first, the idea of packing a hospital bag felt overwhelming. I asked all my mama friends for advice on what they REALLY liked having or truly needed while at the hospital to compile my list of essentials. Some of the ideas were helpful and some didn't seem necessary, but I loved hearing everyones advice. In the end, you just have to do what is best for you!
