Pregnancy Bucketlist

Now that this pregnancy is coming to an end, I can share how we ended up making the most of this experience. I wish I could tell you that we have a baby already, but she's STILL hanging in there. In fact, I think she has grabbed onto my ribs and is hanging on for dear life, because that's what it feels like. However, don't be surprised if you see something popping up via other social media in the next day or two. I think the stork may be a'comin!

When I asked everyone what were our must do's during the pregnancy, everyone agreed on date nights, movies, and stocking up on sleep. I figured these were some good tips, but it wasn't enough for me. I'm not one of those people that thinks our life will be over when we have a baby, but I am embracing the fact that our priorities will change. Luckily, even before we knew we were pregnant we soaked up every minute of fun and will always savor the memories.

Throw a party {or three}.
Try new things.
Bike ride while you still have balance.
Whip up a labor intensive recipe that you won't be able to enjoy with a newborn.
Dance even if it's superdeeduper awkward with a belly.
Run {or walk} a 5K.
Wear a bikini while no one can judge you.
Go on at LEAST one adventure.
Volunteer in some capacity.
Visit any theater...movies, musical, comedy, and/or thespian.
Get a tattoo...j/k, but I did do this by accident. Whoops.
Date nights, both on the town and cuddled on the couch.
Enjoy fun in the sun and water whenever you can.
Travel until your doctor grounds you.

It's strange to think that a year ago I was sending Will off to Survival Training and a month apart. So much has changed in that year, and I can't believe the memories that we've made. Some of the best times of our marriage have actually happened while we've been pregnant, and still I know even better memories are to come. Once Charlie gets here, it's like we get to experience life with her all over again, and I can't wait.
