Our Labor and Delivery Story

Since the birth of my son came out of nowhere AND it was sort of unplanned and during the holidays I never got the chance to tell the story to my friends and family and everyone keeps asking me why my first instagram photo with little E was in the hospital and not at home?! I still didn’t get to tell them the story so we decided to shoot a video of my husband and I telling you what happened instead of writing it all out! lol
Me being lazy right now (p.s baby is sleeping and I am writing this as fast as I can! lol)
It is a tad bit long, so go grab a cup of tea and maybe some cookies and enjoy our story of the birth of Everest on Dec 23rd 2015!

34 Week Bumpdate – Prepping

Time is flying by so fast! I cannot believe that I am already at 34 weeks and prepping for the baby to come. I have a list of things to do, but one of them is making the Raspberry Leaf Tea and prepping my uterus!!
Here is the simple recipe that I have been enjoying:

Main Ingredients:
1/2 cup organic red raspberry leaf
1/2 cup organic nettle leaf
2 tablespoons organic rose hips

Optional Add-Ins:
Fresh ginger (to help with digestion)
2 tablespoons mint leaf (also beneficial for digestion, not to mention delicious!)
2 tablespoons chamomile (to soothe frazzled nerves and encourage restful sleep)

For a single cup:
Allow to infuse for at least 10 minutes. Remove tea leaves and sweeten with honey, maple syrup, etc. if desired

If you don’t have a tea ball, simply add the tea leaves to boiling water and then strain with a mesh strainer .

To make a large batch, boil 8 cups of water and add 1/2 cup tea leaves. Steep for at least 10 minutes to overnight, then strain and place in the fridge to sip on over the next few days.

20 Weeks and 1st Ultrasound

Finally got to meet our little boy! Since my pregnancy has been smooth and I decided to have him at home, I didn’t have an ultrasound until later in my pregnancy. 20 weeks! It did feel like forever ( I saw some other friends go in right away and did feel a bit jelly at times) BUT it was worth the wait!

Wanna keep reading and see more photos….(this way)
