10 YouTube Channels to Follow When You Have Baby Fever

9FE66B92-6009-49C6-BF32-60DFC563ECD1Have you and your hubby been talking about wanting children? Maybe you’re single, but when you see a baby nearby, you want to hold it and love it and have one of your own. That is where I’ve been for the last few years. On Pinterest, I pin all kinds of baby things that I want eventually for my own. I down the baby aisle at the store, and can’t seem to find my way out… And now that my husband and I are officially married, we’re trying for our own! Which I will be keeping you guys updated on 🙂

While in this waiting period, I have been watching a ton of YouTubers who have shared every part of their pregnancy from dpo (days past ovulation) symptoms to getting their BFP (BIG FAT POSITIVE) and telling their husbands! (Which is the sweetest thing to watch!)

Honestly, these get addictive, and I’ve stayed up for hours watching one video after another. I just love seeing a couple’s happiness about starting a family together, and then seeing the adorable little baby when it’s finally here.

So, if you have baby fever like I do, and have some free time on your hands (and tissues nearby), then check out these YouTubers!

  1.  Milena Ciciotti– She’s a young Christian woman who started her channel about 2 years ago. She’s hilarious and down-to-earth. There’s not a video of hers I don’t like! She makes videos about faith, makeup and life updates! She just recently had her sweet little girl and gave us updates through the whole pregnancy. You’ll want to subscribe right away so you don’t miss a thing!
  2. The ACE Family– I didn’t realize how popular this channel was until I saw how many subscribers they had (Over 15M!). And for good reason! They have been around for quite some time now, and have some super entertaining videos. They keep us updated about all of their family adventures. You’ll feel like you’ve known them your whole life after just one video. They also just recently had their second baby, and shared all about the pregnancy.
  3. Tres Chic Mama – I subscribed to Hayley’s channel just the other day after seeing her video on DPO symptoms before finding out she was pregnant. She’s funny and so relatable. She vlogs about beauty, baby updates, routines, and plenty of Day in the Life videos. Love her!
  4. 2M Media– This channel posts TONS of different kinds of compilation videos from funny animals, fails, babies, and best of all..pregnancy reactions! They will have you laughing, crying and planning out your own future pregnancy announcements. They are just some of the sweetest videos to watch. I love seeing husbands and families so supportive and so excited!
  5. Aspyn Ovard– I have been following Aspyn for a couple of years now and am obsessed with her life! She’s a type A, determined new mama who has made an amazing life for her and her husband with her YouTube channel. She vlogs about beauty, fashion, lifestyle and basically just anything interesting that comes up in her life. She’s very much an open book and is always looking to get her viewers content that they will love! She is about 13 weeks pregnant now and is now sharing her journey which has been exciting. If you are a female, you will love her channel!
  6. Avi and Lito Steen– A Christian couple who has shared some very difficult, personal parts of their life. They went through a miscarriage a while back, and took some time to heal through it. But they shared their feelings about it and updates from life anyway. If you have gone through a miscarriage yourself, I think this is a great channel to watch. They also share DPO symptoms leading up to BFP, so if you’re symptom spotting right now, you’ve got to check these out!

A few others I will just share the names of that you can go check out who share some similar material:

Dani Lauren

Kendra Atkins

Sarah’s Day

Fun Family Night Ideas

My husband and I talk all the time about the many things we can’t wait to do when we have our kids. This may be an unpopular choice, but are going to set a certain age for our children to be able to get a smartphone or tablet. We don’t want them on electronics all throughout the day. Family nights are something we’d love to have as often as possible!

If you’re looking for some fun, wholesome ideas for your own family nights, look no further!

Here is my list of    fun family night ideas

1. Movie Marathon-

Okay, so I put this one first because I feel like we all love a good movie marathon now and again. It can difficult to find appropriate kid-friendly movies that are also entertaining for adults, so I did some researching and found a site that I LOVE! It is called PureFlix (Get it? Netflix but with PURE content :D) If you haven’t heard of it you are missing out. One of the things I seriously admire and appreciate about Pure Flix is that they strive to be the most trusted faith and family-friendly video-streaming source on the web.

They have a mix of family-friendly and wholesome entertainment including movies for all ages, kid’s animated titles, documentaries, how-to’s, hobbies, educational, health and fitness, sports, outdoors and travel plus many inspirational and devotional titles, all streamed directly to PC’s, iPhones and Androids, or download the app to your Smart TV and watch them there! So many options for movie nights!

2. Ice Cream Sunday Bar

I used to be an ice cream fanatic! When I was younger, I loved adding all kinds of crazy treats to my sundaes. So, I can’t wait until we have children and they are old enough for this. You can go ALL OUT, the more colorful, the better! Now, I understand that not everyone is okay with giving sugar to their kids, and that is perfectly fine! This option won’t be for you. We will not be giving our kids a ton of sugar either, we plan to not even have many sugary options around the house, so it’s not a temptation. But once in a great while, I’d love to give them an extra special treat.

Throw in some fruit loops or their favorite cereal, maybe some oreos or peanut butter cups, drizzle raspberry sauce, hot fudge or marshmallow. And plenty of sprinkles! Just leave around some options for them to add and create their own Sundae masterpiece. I would recommend maybe doing this earlier in the day though (depending on their age) and in a very small cup…so you don’t have crazy hyper munchkins running all over the house at bedtime!

3. Stargazing

Lay down some sleeping bags in the backyard, and gaze at the stars. Maybe do a little research beforehand about some of the constellations so that you can all seek them out together and learn more about them!

4. Game Night

My family actually still does this. I used to LOVE our family game nights. We’d play all kinds of things from cards to charades to mad libs. Uno is our all time favorite game to play these days. It can get competitive, but it’s a ton of fun for everyone. Find which games your family is into, set a certain day that works for everyone’s schedules, and stick to it! From our experience, it keeps everyone close, even when they’re all moved away and starting their own lives. I just think it’s such a great tradition for families to start.

5. Backyard Camping

Set up a tent in your back yard, lay out a TON of comfy blankets and pillows, pop some popcorn or your family’s favorite snacks, grab the marshmallows and chocolate, and head outside for a night of camping. If you have a fire pit, roasting marshmallows and making smore’s is always a fun addition! If someone knows how to play the guitar, get them out there playing some campfire songs. Tell stories. Make this a no electronics zone like it would be if you were out camping in the woods. Just take this time to relax with your family and bond.

6. Glow Stick/Dance Party

If you have young ones, this may actually be a good way to get them tired out faster in time for bed! In the early evening, when the sun is going down, turn on some upbeat music that your kids will love, and break out some glow sticks. Turn the lights off and watch them be in awe!

7. Fondue Night

Because fondue is amazing.

8. Decorate Cookies

Buy a few cookie frostings and writers and sprinkles. Lay out all of the fun supplies, and watch your kids light up! This one will be a little messy…so just make sure it’s over an easy-to-clean surface. You and your spouse will likely enjoy the heck out of this one too. I mean, its cookies! Who wouldn’t 😀

9. Watch the Sunset

So beautiful!

10. Build a Blanket Fort

Hey, you can have your movie marathon in a blanket fort to make it that much more fun. Everyone help build it together. Try to use the longest blankets you have for this so they won’t keep falling down! This just kind of changes things up from just laying on the couch. And it’s super cozy!
