{Confessions} Pregnancy Edition

Let me preface this post by saying that I am so, so, so very thrilled that my lovely friend Jessica over at The Newly has started a weekly link up for confessions. Because let's be real, us gals always need the opportunity to get a few things off of our chest. I mean, who doesn't? So without further ado, let's get this 'fess session started.

I confess...

{1} That despite the fact I'm ready to meet our little guy, I secretly wish he'd hang in there a bit longer. I'm sort of dreading the long nights with a newborn and even longer days with a toddler who isn't going to be too appreciative of our newest family addition. 

{2} I've yet to install Boston's car seat in mine or Kevin's car. I keep telling myself a family member can bring it to us if he comes early. 

{3} Same goes for our hospital bags. I have things laid out at random places in the house and all my toiletries are packed in my make up bag but I've yet to put everything in a suitcase. But again, I keep telling myself someone else can throw it in a bag and bring it to the hospital if need be. That's what best friends are for and all (; 

{4} I had a minor meltdown over the fact that Kevin is going to be working non stop the next few weeks and I've yet to clean out Boston's closet which means we still have baby shower gifts sitting in our living room. Will they still be there when Boston gets here? Probably. Because, you know, toddlers don't allow for time to clean out closets. 

{5} It seems that when you're pregnant and already walking a thin line of mental breakdown everything can go wrong. Our dryer isn't working right, Kevin went to the doctor thinking he may need back surgery, and we may/may not have a major leak in the main drain on our second floor. I'm almost afraid to ask if anything else might go wrong this week...

{6} I confess that as excited as I was to wear regular clothes this entire pregnancy, I'm starting to hate my pikos, leggings, and tunics that I have in rotation as much as I hated my maternity clothes with Harper. They may just have to go in a donate pile when all is said and done. But we'll see. 

{7} Since I'm starting to resent my current wardrobe, I have my eyes on a few new pretties. I already pulled the trigger on this pretty pale pink number and I'm currently debating tossing this lace beauty in my cart as well.

{8} I've downloaded about 20 books onto my kindle and haven't started a single one in hopes that I can find time to read them during my time at the hospital and during my maternity leave. Is that wrong?

{9} Blame it on pregnancy but I finally grew a backbone and may or may not have been a bit rude to a seller on ETSY. Three weeks ago, I paid for a custom order to have the most adorable onesie and hat made for Boston and a coordinating shirt and matching monogrammed hair bow for Harper. My intention was to have the two of them sport their new shirts and accessories during our fresh 48 session at the hospital. When I requested my order, the lady assured me she could have it done in 4 days. Fast forward 2 weeks later and it's yet to ship and she hasn't responded to my four emails. By the fifth one I was so ill I reported her to ETSY. Now I'm in limbo as to what to do about their outfits...Do I find someone to make one and risk it not being here in time or just pick out another outfit that isn't half as cute... Womp, womp, womp. 

And that's all I have for today. I tried to round it out to ten things but you know... pregnancy brain and all has my mind all messed up (; 

See you ladies tomorrow for our usual Five on Friday!

  1. Awww, I'm sorry to hear all of that, but hang in there. It will all be worth it! Praying for you regardless!

  2. omg giiiirl you're giving me such anxiety. I was such a super freak about bags being packed for the hospital. (I really wish I could use emojis on my blogger comments! Picture the monkey covering his eyes here!). I'm so sorry to hear about the Etsy seller-thats terrible! I hope you're able to find something in time!

  3. I had to do that with a etsy seller too. Twice. One I paid a ton of money for a cake topper and she never sent it. I had to report her, get my credit card to give me my money back and then etsy shut her store down because she did this to others. The other I ordered a custom birthday banner and it didn't arrive on time. It arrived the day after the party when I ordered it a month and a half early. It said it sent a month before the birthday. So mad.

  4. I don't think I could ever hate a Piko! Then again I've never been in this situation haha. Love this update

  5. Good for you for getting mad at that ETSY seller. That is crazy.. how RUDE. Some people are so unreliable and it's so sad. I'm sorry you've been a little stressed lately but it will all get better little by little!

  6. So much going on for you! What a crazy and chaotic time. I can't imagine when I'm pregnant!

  7. So sorry you had such bad service on Etsy!! Good for you for reporting it- don't feel badly! I would go to another seller at this point to make sure you get everything done in time for the big moment. :-)

  8. So I have a confession too, I'm secretly obsessed with the name Boston! A friend of a friend named their son Boston years ago and I've quietly been in love with it. So cute to see it just pop up in your confession today. Also, I have a stack of about 20 physical books sitting in the corner that I need to read so your digital ones are not bad at all. haha xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias

  9. You have so much going on! I hope you are taking a few minutes here and there to have some me time. I recently had to do that with someone on Etsy, too. It was around the holidays and I guess they were busy, but it is a business she needs to keep maintained.

  10. I hope you get lots of reading done! I just finished a great book, The Kind Worth Killing, if you're looking for *another* book to download!

  11. So annoying about your Etsy order! The matching shirt and onesie idea sounds like it would be super cute!

  12. As a business owner, that lady sounds very unreliable - if she took her business seriously, she would NEVER treat a customer like that, so you were definitely in the right to get frustrated with her and file a complaint. The least she could do is respond to you! And girl - I know what you mean. Toward the end of pregnancy, none of your clothing is desirable anymore. You just want to be done with it. Totally get it. And totally think you should snag that lace peplum top. So cute!

  13. I can't imagine how frustrating dealing with that Etsy shop has been! Also, if I lived by you I would be there in a heart beat to do the closet! I wish I was a full-time personal organizer so that sounds right up my alley! haha
