Pineapple Smoothie

I've been wavering between enjoying our last moments as a family of three and going insane waiting for this baby to come. I kept telling everyone I was mentally prepared to go overdue again (Alice was 10 days late) but now that it's here, I think I lied. Waiting is the worst! But such is the emotional roller coaster of pregnancy, this baby will come when it's good and ready.

I decided to just focus on the positive today and enjoy the sunshine and this yummy pineapple smoothie (with a flamingo and fancy straw because sometimes I need to justify my random target purchases).

  2. Hang in there, Christine! I hear ya, it's so hard to be at the end and soooooo beyond ready. But then they arrive and eight months later you're saying "how do I have an eight month old already?"

  3. After seeing this on your Instagram feed, I decided I needed to make one too! Today is/was my due date with #2, and I am also in between the emotional roller coaster of enjoying the last moments with my daughter but also going crazy with wanting this baby to be here!
    Hang in there, Mama! :)

  6. I'm totally Pinning this to make!

    I'm so sorry, this waiting game has got to be emotionally draining, mama! I'm also convinced all those labor-inducing tips don't really work as I tried them all (acupuncture, spicy foods, raspberry leaf tea, reflexology) with Quinn & she was still 2 weeks past due. You're right, these bebes have their own agenda.

    Sending big hugs your way! At least baby will be here before July right?!? ;-)
