36 Weeks!

5 year old boyfriend on the outside, 36 Week baby sister on the inside!💕🎉 {Also, today's dress was $10 bucks, so pretty pleased about that! Haha! FIND IT HERE.} The bump dressing game is always just that: a game, those last few weeks of pregnancy! The game being "How many outfits can I try on with limited energy before breaking down in tears on the closet floor!?" 😜😂 I will say that this time has gone a little bit smoother on that front, but there are definitely still moments, especially when you feel like you've outgrown your biggest clothes!😂} #thedaintypear #tdppregnancy #baby5 http://liketk.it/2rOTT




Owlz Game!

Summer Nights + Baseball with the @oremowlz! We had  such a blast. The yawns are proof that they made it to the bottom of the 7th inning! Haha! Also, the sweet EMT there even fixed our 2-year-old's head to the concrete owie by giving him his very own baseball! And our kids were LOVING the Mascot! Haha! The weather was crazy until right as we got there, and it turned into a gorgeous fair-weathered game! And they won! Woohoo! Getting around at 35 weeks preggo hasn't been the easiest task, {Haha!} but it was such a fun time!

Humble Parody

                  


Today called for some gangsta' rap. Anyone else?!😂 This full version is being uploaded to my YouTube channel as we speak! You know, in case you get terribly bored.💃🏼 Also, recording the audio in one take was harder than I anticipated. I guess everyone needs a hobby the last few weeks of pregnancy, #AmIRight?😜😂 #thedaintypear#tdppregnancy #35weeks #tdpparody

Hormone Monster

Tonight was one of those nights that you don't see an epic meltdown coming until it's right there in your face. I'm not talking about my kids, it was ME. 34 week pregnant me.

I was feeling pretty uncomfortable and exhausted all day, so really it shouldn't have been a surprise when one moment I decided I needed a bath at 11:00 at night and the next moment I got out to find my clothes, only to find myself face down in the covers sobbing because I was so tired and nauseous. Haha! Tired and nauseous are a daily occurrence, so not sure why it set me on the sob train this time, but it did. I knew that I was going to throw up, so I walked over to the toilet and there it came. And what also came was the pee from the bladder I didn't know had anything in it. So I cried harder. As I stood there bum-naked, throwing up, sobbing my eyes out, and peeing the floor, I thought how hilariously pathetic I'm sure it would all look to an outsider. And also thought how glad I am that Clorox is one of my besties. After all, you'd think it would take someone mighty talented to do all those things at once. Turns out, it just takes someone mighty pregnant. 


"What lead me to this lowly state!?" I thought! And then as I sorted out my emotional self, I realized that there are so many FEELINGS that come with the last few weeks of pregnancy! So ready to be done, but desperate to soak it all in. So much to do, but so little energy to do it. So many feelings and apparently not enough ways to express them adequately other than a big ugly cry. Hahaha.


Being on my 5th baby, I feel like I know the emotions of what "not being pregnant" anymore will feel like. It's a mixture of both elation and emptiness. No matter how miserable it feels now with the puking, heartburn, aches, and exhaustion, there will be a day--probably about 6 days after birth--where the hormones hit the floor and I will be sobbing just because I'm "not pregnant anymore." It's quite hilarious that you can feel so awful, but also so grateful and powerful while pregnant, but still just down-in-the-dumps miserable and still long for it within days after giving birth! How do I know this?


Here is exhibit A:


I took this photo 6 days after having our 4th baby. I needed to get out and we needed food, so we went to Costco! Leggings and a giant pad in tow, I was ready for some adventure and normalcy! On the way, I broke. I knew what was happening, though. I knew that it was the hormone monster inhabiting my body, and I knew from previous experiences that it would go away. I knew these things, so naturally I took a picture to remember it.;) I was full of the baby blues and longing for pregnancy. Did I not remember that I was still puking my guts out 6 days prior? I did. But in that hormonal monster state, nothing makes sense and the feelings are REAL. So, I suppose my point in all of this is that the feelings you feel during and after pregnancy are normal. Do they feel freakin' insane and confusing? Yep. Do they make you wonder who in the H invaded your body and made you this emotional wreck of a person when you're usually so "normal?" Yep. And do they confuse the heck out of everyone in your path? Oh yeah. So that's why I'm here to tell you, "Don't fret." Things do go back to normal, and even though I'm going into having this baby soon with the same anxieties as all the others, I can at least say that I know these dorky things called hormones are there to serve a purpose even when they make you feel like a psycho. So, carry on, cute Mama. And know if you're naked, puking, sobbing, and peeing the floor all at the same time one of those exhausting nights of pregnancy, you're not alone. You're not alone.

Video-ing at a Home Birth

We're officially on the birth count down! So, attending births gets be both excited and anxious! Haha! Last week I got to attend a birth as the videographer, [one of my hobbies and am so not professional,] and just thought it would be fun to share the video here! I have never been to a home birth before, so that was a cool experience! This Mama did a great job and her cute baby was born a 9:10 at night. Let me know what you think!:) {P.S. If you're in the market for a Bridal Gown, while I was there I found out that this family owns a cute Bridal Shop called Malmrose Bridal! Check them out!}

Strip Lashes for Dummies

My most hot mess video to date is up on my youtube channel! {Insert wide-eyed emoji here. Haha.} We're talking false lashes alongside an unmade bed, unwaxed brows, and wailing children. {Don't worry, they were fine. Hahah!} But isn't this how it is if you ladies try to get ready in the morning, too?! {Please say yes. Hahaha.} And can we just talk about how some of these things that you're "supposed" to keep up on to make yourself a presentable human just have me like: "Ain't nobody got time for that!" Haha! #momlyfe #thedaintypear #tdpmotherhood#tdpreviews #tdppregnancy #33weeks

Drive it Like it's Hot.

Oh hey, Mamas! I can't be the only one who cried real tears the first time they drove away in a minivan, leaving their "cool" car at the dealership, only to fall head over heels for this sexy thing! I mean the way the doors slide like butta' at the click of a button and the way my entire Costco trip can fit in the back with a triple stroller? Mmmn. So, we made a little [cheesy but sincere] "Homage to the Minivan." Hahaha! Happy Monday!<3
