Baby update: 39 weeks! 

As everyone else I know is having their little ones, I sit here writing yet another blog post because my tiny human is comfy and doesn’t want to come out yet. *sigh*

This week, Baby Hill is around the size of a watermelon (yes, I finally got to use that fruit equivalent!). She weighs around 7 pounds and is anywhere between 19-21 inches long.

Peanut is fully cooked at this point and can come at any moment!

Doctor Appointment Update : At my last visit, we had some improvement. I was 70% effaced and 1 centimeter dilated.

Even with that bit of progress, our little princess has decided inside mummy’s tummy is better than the real world… And so, we continue to anxiously await her arrival.

I also found it interesting that I have lost nearly two pounds since my last appointment. Apparently that is normal due to baby continuing to grow and make less and less room for the rest of my under parts.

Fingers crossed that she comes before my next appointment…that would be a nice thing for her to do 😉

The Struggle: With one week till baby’s due date, I am a miserable human being.

I can’t sleep, can’t breathe properly if I lie down, and my back hurts. And, on top of all that, life itself and pretty much everyone in it annoys me.

My recent motto has become, “I give zero f@!#s”. Because… Well, I don’t.

Birthday Predictions: At this point, I have no clue when she’ll arrive. I truly believed she would be an October baby… And as of today that is no longer possible.

To keep from becoming anxious/frustrated, I have stopped assuming she’ll come soon. I mean, if she’s not out within a week, the princess is getting evicted from the castle anyways.

Sorry (not sorry) darling, you can’t stay in there forever.

Other things: I find it amusing when people ask how far I am, I tell them, and then they find out I am still working as a middle school teacher.

Yes, I am about to pop (literally).

Yes, I still teach and coach full-time.

Why? Because I like being busy and don’t feel the need to sit at home, be bored, and be more miserable that I already feel. Also, we need the money AND I may slightly be a crazy person on top of it all. 😉

On a plus, my maternity leave starts after this Friday. Can’t believe I am going to make it to my last week of teaching before baby arrives.

As the days flutter by, I am more and more anxious to meet my little girl and finally hold her in my arms. I’m looking forward to all the hard work that is to come. Hopefully see you soon little one. ❤️

39 weeks down, 1 week to go! 


Like to travel? Then READ THIS!

Do you love to travel but realize how traveling costs money…

If you are like me, a full time working graduate student, then it can be difficult to travel as often as you may like.

However, what if I told you there is an AMAZING, invite only traveling hot spot that you can be a part of? 

This company is called World Ventures. They bring you a website with amazing limited time Dream Trips. Along with it’s vacation booking buddy, Rovia (similar to an Expedia or Travelocity) it makes vacations cheaper than you can imagine! 

Another plus, if you book through them and you find your trip cheaper else where they will give you their price matching deal! FANTASTIC RIGHT?!

Some of you may be a bit skeptical…as was I at first…but after becoming a part of this amazing opportunity I realized it was JUST THAT GOOD! No joke. 

Now, this does cost you a bit of $$$…The sign up fee is $200..which will go directly towards your first DreamTrip. The monthly fees range. I would suggest the Dream Trips Life membership. It is $55 a month (which at the end of the year goes into your piggy bank to use towards a vacay) 

Pretty much you are investing monthly for a vacation at the end of the year. Helping you save without the hassle of thinking about it. 

I would say this is already worth it…but this makes it 100% worth your money. 

Once a month Dream Trips does a 5 day/4 night cruise for ONLY $69 per person! I kid you not…it really is that cheap. So even if you only buy that trip…there you have completely made up your monthly fees. 

I am telling you. Check out this link and click the 2: Love to travel? button, then watch the video.

This is a great opportunity for those of you who love to travel as much as I do and want some great deals in the process.

Hope to see you guys on some Dream Trips! 🙂
