It's been a while I know! I didn't post much during my third trimester because I was pretty exhausted and trying to work super hard to get everything ready for our new arrival. There was also a lot of drama in my personal life and I wanted to ignore it and focus on being healthy and pregnant instead of the stresses.

My last trimester was also pretty challenging - I had gestational diabetes that was nearly impossible to control with diet and exercise and I ended up on medication during the day and injectable insulin at night. Additionally, my blood pressure went up as well. I had weekly appointments and twice weekly non-stress tests. We were worried he would be a huge baby!  

Lincoln came on March 5th and he's perfect! It has been a month and I'm so in love with him! I hate the thought of going back to work but I have no choice. We need the insurance that I carry, especially now that we have a little boy. He has made me happier than I ever thought possible and I didn't know I could love someone so much. I love Travis so much - who knew I would love him even more every time I see him snuggle, change, feed, or kiss our son. It's beyond anything I ever imagined!

I feel so different now that I'm a mom... It's amazing! But how could you not fall in love with this little face
