Hello from Outer Space!

Well, it certainly has been a while since I posted here, hasn’t it??

TONS of things have happened. Let’s see, oh yeah, I’m 38.5 weeks pregnant!!! So, in about a week and a half, Mark and I will be welcoming little Francesca Alessandra into the world. I’m super excited. And terrified.

The pregnancy has been mostly hassle-free until the very end when I’ve had some blood pressure issues and almost had to be induced early but thank goodness everything is fine now. I barely gained 25 lbs for the majority of being pregnant (even though I was eating SO badly. Oh, yeah. I have been all about sweets, carbs, soda and fast foods and comfort foods. Bad Kat.) but after all the craziness with my blood pressure and preeclampsia scare, I was put on bedrest for the last 5 weeks of my pregnancy and have managed to gain an additional 15 lbs. Sigh. I won’t lie, it has been a total mind-fuck to see the scale going up and up and not being able to do anything about it. After getting diagnosed with the high blood pressure I went back to eating healthy, but I’m still gaining weight. My OB assures me this is just water weight at the end and not to worry so much, but it’s hard, you know?

As far as other hectic things in my life, the boyfriend and I decided we should buy a house since we were becoming parents, so we have been shopping around and dealing with that whole mess. Let me tell you, getting a house is no picnic. So, due to all that stress, plus helping my mom plan a baby shower and now getting ready for the baby to come home, I’ve barely had enough time to think, let alone update the blog.

I’m catching up with what everyone has been up to, though, and I wanted to make an announcement that I will go ahead and follow through with my idea of blogging about motherhood.

The new blog is called “Kat Bites! Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Baby” and it would mean so much to me if you guys checked it out! It’s still a work in progress but I promise it’ll be good LOL

I will still try and update this blog as much as possible.

I hope you are all doing awesome!!!!

Love,

Kat
