Fast forward to March and I’m 10 days away from my due date. I was ready for this pregnancy to be over. This was also when I started experiencing “round ligament” pain more intensely … it wasn’t until my fourth pregnancy that I discovered it was actually Pubis symphasis dysfunction (google it).

My first birthing experience ended up being cesarean. My second was an easy VBAC. My third, ended as a second cesarean…that may be a post for another day. A beautiful 7lb 9oz girl was born on March 18th. I also discovered I’m allergic to vicodin and steri strips. I was itchy alllll over and then broke out in blistery hives. It. was. Awesome. {sarcasm}

The first 9 weeks were rough, she was a night owl and were usually up from 12am-3am and spent many hours watching Netflix. Breastfeeding was also not going well (24/7 nursing sessions) and we had twice weekly weight check appointments, appointments for acid reflux, as well as appointments to make sure she was eating enough while breastfeeding. I made the decision to stop breastfeeding and we started using the expensive, Nutramigen formula…that was an expensive year, but everyone was happier. Also, Thank God for 4K being full days twice a week.

It took me another two months to get back infront of the camera and those late nights and sitting all day were taking their toll on my health. Around this time was when I also started experiencing plantar fasciitis and figuring out how to beat it.

Fast forward a few months later and I was working hard with P90X3, working out through the pain (don’t be dumb, like I was) to get ready for our friend’s wedding and family trip in North Carolina. We decided to go on a road trip, the trip made us realize three children was enough for us we had a little taste of “freedom” and by freedom, I mean, we were ready to get out of the baby/toddler stage. Or so we thought, guess who is pregnant…again. Surprise!

Eva was roughly 7 months when we found out we were expecting again. It took us longer to announce our pregnancy with number four, we were both preparing to go through this again. The following set of pictures marks the beginning of pregnancy number four (and feeling horrible)! Once again I was determined to have a fit pregnancy, I continued with P90X3 until it became too challenging and pubis symphasis started again.

Pregnancy #4
This marks the end of 2014. Head on over to the next post to see what 2015 was like.
