69. Answering all your pregnancy questions

Powered by RedCircle

Over the past few months, we’ve gotten lots of questions about this very unexpected and surprise pregnancy. So we decided to devote a podcast episode specifically to answering these questions.

We had so much fun answering them — and talking about the books we’re reading and two things that are saving our lives right now. In this episode, we share:

  • A body wash I’m loving
  • How Jesse finally came to the dark side and joined me in loving joggers
  • Books we’re reading and loving right now
  • Our thoughts on the big age gap between Silas and this baby (11 years)
  • How having older kids has changed our perspective on this pregnancy
  • Why we’re going to an OB instead of a midwife this time
  • What medication I took to help my nausea
  • Differences in this pregnancy versus my other pregnancies
  • What I’m doing differently this time around — especially when it comes to postpartum
  • Little snippets of the birth stories of our other three kids.
  • And a lot more!
