Yesterday was 37 weeks. Woo hoo! Nothing like being super pregnant in the heat of the summer.
If you know me personally, you know I’m often over prepared. Pregnancy and this kiddo are no different.

Hi! I’ve been stalking this page for weeks now as we prepare for our LO to be born in the coming weeks (37 weeks today). I’m a first time mom (FTM) and plan on EBF for a year.

I have a medela pump in style and NUK hand pump for use after about a month. Any suggestions or guidance is very appreciated.
