Sarah  L&D Nurse / living in the mini apple / pregnant with my rainbow baby 🌈 / mother of dragons (two manx cats, same difference)

I’m sitting here feeling him roll his feet along the top of my belly with a purring cat nestled alongside me. I’m thinking about the pain I’d feel if he was taken from me if we were fleeing violence. I’m thinking of the pain and suffering there is in this world and how I’ve avoided it mostly because I won the random lottery of being born where I was born. I won’t take that privilege for granted. I won’t teach my son to take it for granted. Empathy and compassion are the most important things we can do for our global community. So let’s practice them ✊🏻 check out my stories for more details #endfamilyseparation

This weekend family and friends gathered around to celebrate this little boy, it was beyond joyful and I’m forever grateful for the supportive loving community around me.
But this weekend I also celebrated this man. Who has carried me through so much grief over the past year and has proven time and time again what it is to be a father to our children here and gone. I never thought I could love him more and yet every day I wake up and find I do. I struggled with the words yesterday, but all the same, Happy Father’s Day Jordan. You are my everything, I can’t wait to meet our son and hope he’s just like his Dad 💕 #rainbowbaby

This past two weeks were by far the hardest of my whole pregnancy for reasons medical and personal, both of which I can’t share on here. All I can say is I’m so happy to have this supportive community and such a supportive family, work family, and medical team to help keep it all going when it all felt like too much ✨ #acolorstorygolden

Morning coffee on yet another dreary day. For those who’ve asked, this @oatly I picked up makes me feel like I’m having a coffee shop coffee at home which is no easy feat. Let’s just say I’m in love✨
This week has been rough to say the least, I’ll spare you the details of my current health dramas but let’s just say I hope to find some stamina to get through this last stretch of pregnancy because I find myself feeling more fatigued and unbearably stretched thin by the day ✨ lots of love #mylittlemplskitchen

A little throwback to #WHPshapes around @northeastminneapolis...
I don’t know why this photo makes me think of Anthony Bourdain, but it does and it breaks my heart 💔

Reposting my same photo from @mylittlemplskitchen because I wanted to share this @target glass with you! These are my new favorite for pregnancy because they are glass, easy to hold, and the straw encourages me to drink more! Plus, CUTE! 💕 (2 for $3 in the dollar section!)

original post:
I like to call these sorts of days “rest and grow days.” This little boy of mine is going through a major growth spurt. I always know because his movements slow (he still has good kick counts, I can just tell he’s sleeping more) I’m ravenously hungry, and now with the aid of a glucometer I know that I was right by feeling that my blood sugar was low despite eating every hour or two. Every calorie I’m taking in is going to this sweet little guy. So napping and eating it is, grow on little guy ✨
Smoothie:
One banana 🍌
Two dates 🌰
Coconut milk 🥥
A couple scoops of tahini 🍶
Cinnamon

I watch you sleeping and think about our child.

Our child.

What a strange and beautiful phrase. To think that together we are creating someone new for this world. How perfectly miraculous and mundane.

I watch the light trace over your forehead and graze along your cheeks. The shadow beneath your eyes and chin. I think about the cheeks we will both kiss, the eyes we will gaze in.
I’m in awe ✨
