A Scottsdale Mom’s Guide to Pregnancy: Everything You Needed To Know When Expecting


Scottsdale Moms Guide to Pregnancy

Pregnancy Resource

Well sweet SMB friends, I don’t think I’ve officially-officially posted it on here yet, but I’m happy to announce I’m pregnant with baby #3! I’m 24-weeks pregnant with our third girl and we are super excited (and a bit terrified ;-)) about it.

I had planned on dedicating this post to sharing some pregnancy wisdom, since this isn’t my first go-around. However, I was so inspired by all the amazing advice already on SMB, I thought it would be nice to do a round up of all the amazing pregnancy-related posts.

While I might be pushing it a tad by claiming “everything you needed to know when expecting,” I’m still in awe of all the great advice, tips, tricks and laughs available for expectant moms here on SMB.

So, (ahem) without further ado, I present you ladies with SMB’s first edition of a pregnancy guide…
