A BIRTH STORY + MEMORY LANE

pump the brakes...nobody had a baby. i would be more shocked than you if i actually went into labor. my track record isn't promising with two inductions.

(but should you want any updates...i'll be keeping everyone posted over on instagram!)



kaye was induced at 11 days over...even though i tried to wait it out - after a nonstress test i was informed...you're going to have a baby tomorrow. are you ready?

no. no i was not ready. who is?! (actually - i was extremely ready to not be pregnant anymore.)
with sawyer i was hopeful! she'd been pretty low key / quite the dark horse the entire pregnancy. she never really kicked, just kind of bounced around in there very delicately. it was the easiest pregnancy (compared to kaye and this one)...and i thank her for that. in fact...i think she'll be my favorite child for the day.

but yes - i was hopeful. i was hopeful i'd go into labor with sawyer, but after getting checked at 40 weeks with absolutely no dilation and only 25% enfacement...i wasn't in the market to be sitting around for another two weeks just to be told i'd be induced again. so...another induction. another baby girl.

so now, as we are rounding the corner on 40 weeks with baby girl #3 i started taking a walk down memory lane. damn this blog...or bless this blog. i have all these memories documented! memories that make you realized how quickly time passes and memories you're so very grateful to have images and stories that bring you right back to the moment. (praise jesus hands!)
not only that, but memory lane motivated me that i really shouldn't slack off during this third pregnancy. i had convinced myself that i definitely didn't need any bump shots of this last one. but in the final hour (as in yesterday) i met up with amy and she managed to snag some shots that i know i'll cherish.

but for now, if you're so inclined, enjoy my walk down memory lane. (just click the link for the full post.)









are we tired of memory lane yet? hang in there...
