Due…..

17 May

Today is the day Baby Jones was due to enter the world….That’s right! I’m 40 weeks!
However, there is no baby…. He’s kicking, flipping, and moving all around, he just has not made his entrance into the world.

I know it’s been awhile Friends… I was hoping that I could keep you up to date with what is going on in my life, but the reality is,
with pregnancy and working full time, it’s simply tough. I found myself coming home to not writing in a blog, but a nice comfy couch screaming for me to put my feet up (and that’s what I did).
I’ve been a trooper throughout this whole pregnancy though. I’ve dealt with things like:

Sciatica (something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy if I had one)
Carpal Tunnel (IN BOTH HANDS) OUCH!
Inability to eat Fish (it makes me feel super sick)
Nausea (really bad for the first 3 months and sometimes randomly)
Urinary Infections (Helloooo Cranberry Juice!)

Let’s not add the fact that simple things and people would get on my nerves and it wasn’t even their fault. (I was simply just pregnant :0 )

One thing I think I’ve done well is managed to be a pretty put together preggo lady. It took me awhile to get the hang of it, but once I did, you couldn’t tell me anything! If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen some of these!

Check out some of my favorite pregnant style moments:

I’ve made an effort to keep myself still stylish and still feeling beautiful. I’m not exactly sure how I did it, but I think I made up in my mind that just because I was pregnant, that didn’t mean I had to let myself go, and not put forth any effort. I would wobble down to Target, Motherhood Maternity, and Destination Maternity, and find the cutest clothes. I also found some super comfy flats and sneakers (I wore with everything).I would style my hair cute, put on some eye shadow and lip gloss and finish it off with a smile 🙂
In the end, I think it is what has helped me embrace this journey  and handle it like a rockstar (of course with swollen feet and everything 🙂

So today, I am celebrating making it to 40 weeks, but also knowing that the baby could come at anytime. I couldn’t tell you exactly how I feel right now since my emotions are all over the place.. What I can tell you, is that it has been an interesting journey, and I can’t wait to introduce everyone to our baby boy 🙂

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. SPJ 🙂
