Amy is nearing the end of her pregnancy and getting more excited with every passing day! The kiddos are excited to have a new sibling, and everyone has been sharing their guesses about the gender. It won’t be long now!

How far along are you?

I’m about 8 months along this month.

What has been the best part of this month?

Well, this month I found out that my baby was breeched so I made an appointment with my wonderful chiropractor who was able to turn him or her back down to the right position. Woo!

What has been the most challenging part of this month?

I tried really hard to get the baby to turn before visiting the chiropractor, with no luck. However, I did find a website called extremely helpful throughout the process. The website teaches expecting moms a lot of techniques for turning babies to the correct positions and I definitely recommend it for other mamas in similar situations!

What have you been craving?

No major cravings this past month – it's becoming very clear that there is not a lot of room left in my belly!

Do you have any go-to products?

This month I’ve been drinking a lot of La Croix sparkling water. I love the berry and coconut flavors! I’ve also been using Mist for my aches, pains, discomfort, and help sleeping as it gets harder and harder to get comfortable. Flowy dresses have also been a blessing this month. Since nearly everything is uncomfortable, I love being able to throw a loose, flowy dress on because they tend to be comfortable, cute, and accentuate the bump!

Today we have the ease of home pregnancy test - hand-held technology designed to detect a special pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), sooner than ever before.
