010: The Third Trimester
Play • 43 min

The third trimester was busy, uncomfortable, and full of surprises.

But it also had us both so excited and on the edge of our seat to meet our little babe. We were as prepared as we could possibly be and were so ready for the birth even though we didn't know when, where, or how it would all turn out.

In this episode, Jesse and I get into our unique eco baby shower, preventing constipation, (lack of) sleep, belly mapping, consuming dates, dealing with a frank breech baby, natural remedies for fighting a cold during pregnancy, and so much more!
