Meet Reegan Rooney

I joked in the hospital that I was going to title this post "My Birth Plan and How It All Went Out The Window in 15 Minutes."

But, seriously. It did.

On February 6th, I was 40 weeks and 2 days, I headed to the hospital at 10am for a routine ultrasound since I was over due. It was no big deal. My fluids had been up and down for the past few weeks, but nothing in the danger zone so we were just being conscious about making sure she had what she needed. It should be noted that two days over due isn't abnormal, but I was already doing the first pregnancy panic. Having said that... I had plans to go to the Amish market down south and grab a milkshake after. Clearly I did not think we were in for it

December Sundress - 32 Weeks

December Sundress - 32 Weeks

It's 80 degrees. Still. I try and try and try to pretend it's cool and breezy... it's not happening, but the real issue taking place for me personally is the dwindling wardrobe. So it's probably a good thing for me that it's still Summer in the island. Otherwise I would just be in leggings and Jeff's t-shirts. Let's be real... I'm usually in leggings and Jeff's shirts. A few times a week like to act like a human and put on real people clothing.

I Am Plentiful

I Am Plentiful

Almost a year ago, a sorority sister of mine posted a video on Facebook and I was just so impressed. Childless and not currently pregnant, I found her drive to help new moms was honorable. Here was a woman finding a solution to a problem and not letting road blocks stop her. I immediately messaged her and told her I wanted to help her spread the word. I do PR for social media outreach and get bags, swimsuits, and more into the hands of social influencers and I thought... "How can I help you?! I really want to help you."

Nursery Inspiration

Nursery Inspiration

Getting ready for baby feels like a weird dream, and getting ready for baby in another country, an island at that, is a WHOLE other ball game. We are in a version of corporate housing so storage is beyond limited and painting the walls is out. And beyond that getting furniture to Nassau is going to be hilarious. While the nesting and type A tendencies seep out of me, it will take a puzzle to find a way to get the necessities here and on time. But I am beyond up for the challenge.

From crib mattresses to maternity wear, I have turned to the good ole Facebook status update and been blessed with an overwhelming response.
