time is flying by

it's hard to believe how quickly time is passing now.
in about 17 weeks this baby girl will be here...
maybe more
maybe less.
my belly is growing more and more each day
and it's becoming real to us
that before too long
our lives are going to completely change.

it's terrifying
and completely overwhelming.
sometimes i just wish there was a pause button.
i wish i could stop time just long enough to get everything figured out and ready*.
but of course that's not going to happen
so all i can do is take it one day at a time
and do what i can to prepare.
and bask in every little kick and hiccup.

*we found out that i don't get a maternity leave so i'm being forced to resign after the baby is born. which means no job, no income, and no insurance. you don't want to know the level of my stress...


  1. That sucks about maternity leave - or lack of!

    Bet the excitement out weights the stress sometimes right?

  2. Oh, that sucks on the maternity leave front. Make sure you find time to relax and focus on the important job you're doing, growing that beautiful baby. I can't believe you only have 17 weeks left. You'll be a mama before you know it xx

  3. so stressful about not having a job. But trust me, once you see your precious baby girl, you'll never want to go back to work anyway. Hopefully you can get disability.

    I know you've heard it a million times, but seriously, sleep and relax as much as you can. I have a 10 month old and I miss sleep soooo much!

  4. I can only imagine how stressed you are...poor thing! I hope that it doesn't tinge the happiness and excitement of having this sweet little one with too much sadness. Sending you lots of good thoughts and best wishes!

  5. So sorry to hear about your situation, really unfair. But on the bright side you are carrying a beautiful baby girl. Fingers crossed for you to win a sling. XO.
