Driven to the brink of dying from exhaustion, Baby Phoenix Lane (6.5 lb baby and an extra 30+ lbs on mom) will be making his appearance any day now. My anxiety has driven me mad these past nine months and I’m trying to make the best of what I have left, since this could very well be my last pregnancy and baby. However, I don’t feel I can hold him in any longer, but I’ll for sure have him no later than the 20th. I’m 36 weeks today by LMP & 37 weeks, 1 day by his size. Despite how hard it’s been, there are several things that I’m thankful for this year in this pregnancy. I’m thankful for mine and baby’s health. There have been no complications and been pretty smooth sailing almost this whole time, until this final period that I’m sure us moms know all too well. There are no new stretch marks from what I had with Callie. (knock on wood!) I’m grateful for the endless support from family and my friends as well as Callie’s excitement to welcome her little brother and lastly, the Lords undying love for me and this baby. Things have been rocky this pregnancy and I’d be lying if I said it was the picture perfect one that I had always dreamed of after what I went through with Callie, but I’ve almost made it through....(More on my blog: www.ashleydsalazar.com)

Here's some no filter for you. Your body changes a lot after having three babies. I took a full 6 weeks off from doing any working out post baby and this is where I've landed after 3 weeks of exercising 4-5 days a week for 30-60 min, 9 weeks post partum. I'm a solid 10-15 lbs heavier than what my "normal" weight is. Its not just the lbs though, everything seems to shift a bit. I walked into the pool area today for a 1250 meter swim a little self conscious, knowing my bathing suit is too small and the softness was real. I would choose to swim in a one piece right now if I owned one but I don't and I see no reason to buy a new suit. But why is it that I wanted to make sure everyone in the pool knew that I'd recently had a baby? As if any one of them cared about how I looked. And as if it really matters what the reason is. It's human nature to care though. That won't go away. I've never struggled with body image too much but isn't it funny that the people I'm most self-conscious about seeing this picture are people I probably haven't seen in 10 years. (Man Lindsey's really gone down hill 😩) but seriously, it's tough to not feel like yourself, especially when you're already a hormonal mess in the post baby months. The hormone struggle is real. I'm planning to be fit and feel much better in a few months but this shit takes time. Shout out to all the momma's out there getting back to where they were on their own time. No need to fit pre pregnancy clothes right away. Talk to me when we hit a year and if we're still struggling, we can maybe (maybe) consider not eating so much pizza and beer. Also. Doing this after baby 3 is already proving to be much more difficult after babies 1 & 2. There are so many people who want so many things all the time.

Anyone else still drawing Christmas out just a liiiiiittle bit longer? It seems funny to even do that, considering how stressed I was. But when you've got a chunkySanta wanna-be baby and a toddler who loves opening all the things, it's hard to turn off the holiday so quickly. Even when half the ornaments have gone MIA and your picture perfect tree ain't so perfect anymore 😉 So today we finally opened the last of Hs gifts, jiggled mini-Santas belly one last time, and inhaled the last of the Christmas tree scent. We said goodbye to our decorations and are ready to move on to 2017. 2016 got a pretty bad rap, but I've gotta say, it's been a pretty good year for us overall: I finally got pregnant, and had the most amazing water birth, surrounded by the most amazing team. H became his own person and his big brain grows by leaps and bounds daily. My husband was offered and accepted an amazing new job that has given our family so much already. We adopted our ginormous pit bull Clyde, who is a stubborn and obnoxious wanna be lap dog who also has the biggest heart and is incredible with H. - What were YOUR favorite parts of 2016? Celebrate your highs with me! 🎉❤️ (P.S. If you saw my IG sorry already, then you know. But @bookroo_love's subscription is seriously amazing - if you haven't tried it yet, look into their subscription service for your little ones ASAP!) And yes, those are champagne bottles on my Jammie's 😉🍾 - - - - - #momlife #motherhood #ig_motherhood #happymom #mamabear #theDulcetLife #boymom #feelthefeelings #joyfulmamas #liveauthentic #motherhoodunplugged #mybeautifulmess #ourcandidlife #ohheymama #thehappynow #uniteinmotherhood #momofboys #4thtrimester #humansofjoy #thepursuitofjoyproject #clickinmoms #livethelittlethings #momdotme #momlifeisthebestlife #momtog #postpartum #fatbaby #munkimunki #bookroo
