It's officially our last #bumpdate! Amy and the family are working hard to get everything at Pink Stork and at home prepped for their newest arrival. We can’t wait to meet you #5!

How far along are you?

9 months + waiting for the little one to join us!

What has been the best part of this month?

It is SO nice to finally be able to breathe again now that the baby has shifted and isn’t up so high!

What has been the most challenging part of this month?

As always at 9 months, I’m extremely uncomfortable and big ... which has definitely been the most challenging. At the office and at home, I find myself shifting a ton trying to find comfortable, relaxing positions. 

What have you been craving?

This month I’ve found myself eating a lot of beets and drinking beet juice to try and build my iron levels for more energy during labor and recovery.

Do you have any go-to products?

My bounce birth ball has been my best friend this month! A lot of days I replace my desk chair with the ball because it's so much easier to get comfortable. I’ve also been using Pink Stork’s Bath Flakes to soothe aches and pains and Burt’s Bees baby lotion on my bump!

Pregnancy Tests: When to Take Them and Accuracy

We've come a long way since the first recorded pregnancy tests were conducted by the ancient Egyptians. Although we still rely on some of the same materials as they did in 1350 BCE, namely urine samples, our technological advancements have increased the speed and accuracy with which we obtain pregnancy test results. 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.
