2nd Trimester

Welcome to her crib

Today was another step in the *realness* factor of all of this… the crib arrived! It’s going to be so fun to look into the nursery and actually see it as a nursery… instead of just a loft with our old couch in there + books and bags of baby clothes. Now that the crib…

What I Learned About Cloth Diapers

A few weeks ago, which ended up being a pretty stressful day, my friend Nicole taught me and my friend Kelly a TON about cloth diapering. At the time, I was apprehensive about it (for *these reasons*) but by the time I left her house, I felt fully on board the cloth diaper train. It…

Playtime

We had our third birth class this week, and I have to say it was the best one yet. I know I learned a lot, but I couldn’t tell you much about it since we ended class with a 20 minute relaxation massage. I left feeling like a noodle, with a goofy smile on my…

How Eats Have Changed

Eats are always changing and evolving based on discovering new ingredients, changes in activity levels, and learning more about your body and nutrition over time. My eats have changed quite a lot since I started the blog over 3 years ago, but they’ve changed even more in the past 27 weeks. A wonky appetite was…

Sometimes…

When I eat something extra delicious, the baby will kick like crazy. Tom says that she’s dancing and squeezing the umbilical cord to get the good stuff out- kind of like squeezing the end of a tube of toothpaste. I find this image borderline disturbing and hilarious at the same time. [No spoon in your…

Baby-proofing

We love having friends over for dinner or just to hang out. I still haven’t invited any of our friends with babies or small kids over, since our house isn’t exactly baby-proof. [We do have a fun playset in the backyard that needs to be broken in, though] We have things low to the ground,…

A mozzie’s cozzie?

Today I had my last “monthly” midwife appointment- from here on out, they’re every two weeks. My appointment was with the first midwife I met at the practice, and I adore her. She walks into the room, sits in her chair and looks at me, ready to answer questions and takes all the sweet time…

Fun and Blahs of Pregnancy

Online, I’ve read a lot of pregnancy gripes. I’m also guilty of occasionally complaining about the not-so-fun parts of pregnancy, but 99.9% of the time I love it. I can already tell that I’ll be kind of sad when I’m not pregnant anymore, but [god-willing], I’ll have a happy, healthy little baby girl instead 🙂…

New Nutrition Focus

We’ve only taken two classes so far, and I’m really enjoying the Bradley Method classes. Not only does it gives me two dedicated hours of weeknight quality time with Tom [his schedule is so frantic during the week- mine is still busy, but more flexible], time to focus on the baby, a bonus massage at…

26 weeks

and feeling nesty. 24 weeks: 26 weeks: The belly continues to grow and the baby continues to dance and kick away. It’s crazy because now I can tell how long she is in my belly. Last night, she was kicking on my right side and doing something on my left side at the same time.…

Sympathy Cravings

Ok, let me go ahead and describe what that was in detail: 6 layers of chocolate cake with fudge and caramel Dark chocolate frosting A layer of chocolate chips pressed into the frosting. The craziest part? It wasn’t even my idea. The other night, Tom was like, “I really need some chocolate cake. Do you…

Out of curiosity

I don’t want the Family page to come off as me being a paranoid worrywart. Yep, I worry sometimes and the many “what-ifs” cross my mind, but 99% of the time I’m focused on being present and totally happy in this moment, instead of worried about the future. I definitely like to post some of…
