Super unflattering picture of Sarah, but I’ve been meaning to do this for a day and a half. Oops.
BABY BATH! FROM A TUMBLR PERSON!!!! BABY IS GETTING SO REAL YOU GUYS!
Thank you soooo much Cindy (only20seconds!). Sorry to ruin your street cred.
I’m totally in love with this bath. Do you know how hard it is to find a baby bath that ISN’T plastic?! And we got it! Cause Tumblrs AH-mazing!
I can’t even express how much it means to us that tumblr has actually gotten us baby things! And since I have very low hopes for my baby shower, at least I’ve gotten a few bad ass gifts from tumblr! <3
She also made (again, sorry for ruining street cred) this amazing 3D star and laundry detergent. So amazing.
Love love love you so much!!!!
<3 Sarah, Pete & Baby!
I cannot say enough how amazing tumblr is. My whole weight loss experience and now pregnant experience has been and is just…amazing!
Our first baby related thing! AND IT’S FROM A TUMBLR PERSON!!!!
Thank you soooo much Holli (xfitlibrarian!)
It’s soooooo soft! Pete keeps swooning (in the manly-est way possible of course) over how tiny it is. While I laugh about how it’s an “XL” and still shorter/smaller than his torso.
Tumblr is amazing. And bought us our first baby thing ever!
Love love love you so much!!!!
<3 Sarah, Pete & Baby!
P.S. I will write you a proper thank you note, but I didn’t expect anything yet and don’t have any yet….oops. Sorry!
Was informed that the link to my registry doesn’t work when you’re on your phone.
So my registry is on amazon.com/babyregistry under Dilks (in Tucson). If it works this time hazzah, if not at least I gave enough info this time? Hahaha
I love you guys. I have a magical life.
Heyyyyy my original tumblr loves!
I’ve gotten a couple of messages from people asking how I’m doing and about my registry.
I’m 5 1/2 months now (HOLY SHHHHHHH), still nauseous and this baby kicks like the honorary fitblr that it is (soccer or swimmer me thinks!)!
If anyone is interested, my registry is through amazon.com cause I’m cool like that (and had issues finding stuff I would actually use at some of the other baby registries).
I miss you guys and love you much!
PLLLLLLLEASSSSEEEE keep in touch, either through the email here or my other blog (almostgreenmommy).
I will leave you with an incredibly awkward belly pic taken in a Target dressing room.
Hey everyone. This will probably be my last post as smaller-n-smaller (at least for a while). I won’t be checking this blog really anymore either. So here is an adorable picture of Sophie.
I’m trying to make my new blog feel like home.
I just wanted to thank all of you for the love & support that I have received on this blog during my journey. I will never be the same because of all of you.
If you need me, I’ll be over at almostgreenmommy.tumblr.com
We had a misunderstanding. I never thought that I COULDN’T post about pregnancy on this blog.
I simply didn’t want to. This blog is my weight loss journey. I’m not on that anymore. It’s time for a new chapter.
I also REALLY don’t feel comfortable blogging about my pregnancy with the LARGE mass of followers I have. If you legitimately want to follow my new journey, I will be thrilled to have you.
Anonymous asked: I don't know if this is something you talk openly about but I was wondering if you have stretch marks or saggy skin and how you deal with that if you? Thanks.
I do have stretch marks. A lot of stretch marks. I gained 80 lbs and then I lost 100 lbs. It’s par for the course.
I also have extra skin. Granted that’s now being used for the baby. But I did have it. Not a ton, but enough to be noticeable. Again. I lost 100 lbs and even though I did it slowly, it’s just want happens.
I’m the wrong person to ask about either of these things though.
I don’t understand what’s so horrible about stretch marks. Their like battle scars. They show what you’ve been through.
I don’t understand what’s horrible about extra skin either.
It’s your body. Accept it.
So I haven’t been able to eat greens. Tonight I made myself a faux-Caesar salad.
It was so delicious I made a second one. I got less than half way through.
My baby crushed tummy was not as big as my eyes.
The bomb butternut squash (not actually day-glo) mac & cheese I made last night. (Which my cat is currently stalking…)
Nausea wanted to win. But it didn’t. So it’s being a little biz today.
I’m 4 months tomorrow! And my cousins wife just offered me a TON of baby stuff!
The world is now trying to make up for my entirely craptastic morning.
So I’ve touched on this a few times in my blog, but it’s unfortunately relevant again.
Between my junior & senior year of high school, my band director died. I dealt with the pain by barely eating.
My freshman year of college a friend from middle school commit suicide. I dealt with the pain by binge eating.
My grandpa died 2 days after Christmas, and because I’m pregnant and this isn’t just about me. I feel the pain. I can’t starve myself and I can’t binge because I know how bad that would be for the baby.
So I just feel sad. And sometimes it’s overwhelming. And I don’t like feeling the grief, but I know that hyper controlling my food won’t make me feel better. I know that I need to go through this process.
I just wish I didn’t have pregnancy hormones to deal with on top of it all.
It’s a little much.
People finding out I’m pregnant (especially if they know I lost 100 lbs) and saying something along the lines of “awww you just lost all that weight and now baby…”
How about next time you ask me why I lost the weight. My answer: TO HAVE A HEALTHY PREGNANCY.
P.S. PLANNED BABY.

Oh. Sobbing. Okay.
I need to teach this to every child.
And this is why Mr. Rogers Neighborhood is on my baby amazon wish list.
My baby needs this in his/her life.
