I could not believe I pumped so long with them because I worked full time as a 1st grade teacher! I would pump in my classroom, the bathroom that was in between…

35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

I always seem to forget at least one…
