Those of you who had guessed that we would be having a third baby girl were correct! #GirlsWin 

The Upchurch family has finally welcomed our fifth child, Gloria Anastasia Upchurch. She was born on March 31, 2018, at 12:14 AM! She is around 8 pounds 4 ounces, 20 inches long. She arrived after only two and a half hours of labor! For this birth, we decided to have her at home using a midwife (separate blog post to come about my experience!). Since then, Gloria has been showered with love and attention by all the kids ... they love to tell her “Happy Birthday!” every single day as she sleeps the afternoon away. We have all enjoyed time at home relaxing, bonding, breastfeeding and being together.

I am honestly so thankful for my Pink Stork products. They helped me feel less nauseous, more energetic, and overall just BETTER than my other pregnancies. You guys saw me use them all the time (if you watched my Instagram Stories). So you know I believe in them 100% - and I wouldn't get them out for you guys if I didn't believe in them!  

Thank you to everyone who has followed my pregnancy journey and sent love, prayers, and well wishes! I cannot believe I am a mama to 5 little ones!

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.
