Eight months pregnant you guys!

It’s kind of blowing my mind that I hit eight months today. I mean, I’m 8 weeks from my due date. I guess 8 is my lucky number this week.

I had another check up yesterday and everything looks great. Baby boy is finally head down again which means I don’t feel like he’s trying to headbutt his way through my side anymore. Of course I am ridiculous and was a bit worried that, even though I was feeling him just as much, I wasn’t feeling him as strongly. So, ya know, my brain instantly goes to oh em gee what if that means something is wrong?! My midwife said he switched positions though and that’s likely why I’m not feeling him as strongly. Then naturally last night he was back to trying to kick his way out, only this time his escape plan was my ribs. I’m such a silly pregnant lady sometimes.

I’ve still been dancing at least twice a week. We’re currently rehearsing for a performance in about a month and while I’ve been planning on performing I thought I better ask just to be safe. When I asked my midwife when I should plan on stopping dance her answer was my favorite thing ever. “When you’re crowning.” Well okay then. So if you want to see a nine months pregnant lady performing in a hip hop version of Alice in Wonderland let me know and I’ll get you the details.

This coming weekend we’re going to get maternity photos taken. It’s a birthday present from my mom and I’m incredibly excited to see how they turn out. I’m not sure if we’ll have them by next week but as soon as we get them I’ll be sure to post.

Short update this week. I think it’s mostly because I’m in shock over being eight freaking months pregnant. Eight.



The doula dilemma


Why we waited


  1. Wow, you’re almost there! And you’re still dancing! Good for you ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Glad it’s going so well! You look adorable, and that dancing comment is fantastic!

  3. That’s AWESOME that you haven’t given up on your passion of dancing throughout the pregnancy! I would personally love to see one of your performances, but due to distance (I just sense that you aren’t very close to me, not sure why, but I get that vibe) don’t think that would be a reality. Have fun with your maternity photo shoot… and a great weekend in general! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Yeah, dancing makes me so happy so I’m glad I’ve been able to keep doing it. It’s just a bonus that it’s also good for me, haha.

  4. You are looking great!!! The last weeks flew by for me- your little boy will be here before you know it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and great job with still dancing. I was still working out and walking the day I went into labor!

    • Thanks! That’s really encouraging to hear. I definitely want to keep dancing as long as possible… and also get back to it as soon as possible.

  5. Congratulations!

    And by the way, it’ts awesome you’re still dancing. I didn’t stay near as active as I had wanted to during my pregnancy; keep up the great work!

    • I love dancing and it really doesn’t feel like exercise or I’m sure I’d have probably given up by now. I’m horrible about doing any other kind of exercise.

  6. “When you’re crowning” — ha! that’s hilarious, and great that you can keep doing what you love!
