The Fourth with a Few Firsts

by SimplySharpe on July 4, 2014

Y’all are going to have to bear with me on this one, it is picture and possibly, pun heavy…

Here we are on the 4th of July, and I’m finally able to use some of this blessed freedom to post a quick catch up on what’s going on in our world.

The One Where I’m a Mom {On Mother’s Day!}

by SimplySharpe on May 11, 2014

So, a lot has happened since my last post. Obviously, I thought I would write sooner, but nothing happens the way we expect it to, does it?

39 Weeks: The One Where I’m Full Term

by SimplySharpe on March 31, 2014

Why yes, it has been awhile. I can tell from the three people that read these updates that even they were bored with the format. Good thing, too, since the last picture I took was this one at 36 weeks:

34 Weeks: The One Where I’m Considered Normal

by SimplySharpe on February 24, 2014

Today we had an appointment with the high-risk doctor for an ultrasound. One of the few positives of having a high-risk pregnancy is more views of your baby. I think normal/healthy pregnancies only get two ultrasounds: the dating one and an anatomy scan. I’ve had six or seven. Today was actually my last one, as I am now considered a normal or “perfectly healthy” pregnancy as they put it. YAY BABY SHARPE!

32 Week Bumpdate: The One After I Skipped a Week

by SimplySharpe on February 15, 2014

So, you may have noticed I skipped week 31. Oops. Nothing like watching the hubs hard at work putting together baby furniture by himself to make me realize what a lazy preggo I’ve become. This is the first time I have dragged my laptop out of hiding in almost two weeks. You would think it weighs a thousand pounds and still connected via dialup the way I avoid it. It just seems so heavy compared to my iPad. First world problems, I know.

30 Weeks: The One Where I Spent the Night in a Diner

by SimplySharpe on February 2, 2014

Well, this was certainly a week to remember. It took me this long to want to write about it. As everyone already knows, this was a rough week for Atlanta. I was one of the unlucky ones who got caught in the cross hairs of unpreparedness and political divide. I think this article explains it best, but this one about the silver lining of a sucky situation is also a worthy read.

29 Weeks: Bumpdate

by SimplySharpe on January 23, 2014

I can’t believe it’s the last week in my twenties — pregnancy, obviously not age. My birthday is this weekend, and I’m definitely not still in my twenties, though I am pretty happy about that. I have a few friends still enjoying the last years of their twenties, and I forget how different their problems are. They still focus on small things that I forgot to worry about long ago. I love being in my thirties, even if I wish I could pause the clock–about three years ago. Anything after 30 but before 35 just sounds good.

28 Weeks: Hello Third Trimester!

by SimplySharpe on January 14, 2014

HOLY CATS — I’ve officially made it to the third trimester!!! I know most women are kind of miserable by this point, but considering it’s the first of my three pregnancies to make it this far, I’m over the moon. I’m sure I will eventually start to feel some of the usual things women complain about, but right now, I’m all happiness and hearts over my i’s.

26 Week Bumpdate

by SimplySharpe on January 5, 2014

Happy New Year friends! I know it looks like another slacker week for me since tomorrow I will be 27 weeks, but who is keeping track? This lady asked me yesterday how much longer I had, and when I told her April 7th, she said, “Oh, that’s a long way away.” Is it?! It’s just over 90 days from today. That’s only three months away. She continued to tell me that once the baby was here I would realize all the things I had not yet done. Gee thanks, lady! I think one day I will write a post about what not to say to a pregnant woman.

25 Weeks: Christmas Bump Update {Late}

by SimplySharpe on December 28, 2013

I almost missed this week’s update between vacay and acclimating back to reality after a lovely week in the sunshine state. The questions are pretty repetitive anyway, but it’s kind of nice that I will have a record of each week to share with Baby Sharpe one day.
