2nd Trimester

The Doc Deets

Since I started seeing my homeopathic doc (around this time last year), I’ve received so many questions from readers about my experience. Why did I choose this doctor? What was my treatment like? Who is he? Well now that the goal has been accomplished –nuggette in the oven!- I feel like I can finally answer…

First Birth Class

So last night, we had our first Bradley Method class. Per usual, we were frantically running around trying to leave the house on time (we’re late for everything… and if our daughter is anything like her parents, she’ll be late too) but I remembered to grab our two pillows and notebook + pen we were…

I never thought…

….I’d appreciate my parents more than I already do. Reading the mountain of baby books and learning about baby care has made me realize that it’s a LOT of work. They did everything with smiles on their faces and without a single complaint for my brothers and myself. We’ve always been a tight-knit familia, but…

Should they stay or should they go?

Last night we had an amazing time at the foodball game, sharing nachos minus cheese (aka chips with lots of jalapenos) and lemonade, chatting with our friends, and cheering on the cats. [For me, I just cheer when everyone else cheers] One thing I did notice in our squadron was the lack of friends who…

A little glimpse

I had to re-schedule my acupuncture appointment for today. With everything going on, I didn’t think I’d be able to lay there, focus and relax for an entire hour. I kind of had a feeling it was going to be a weird day because I started off the morning by punishing myself and watching a…

24 week update

Grow baby, grow! 22 weeks:                                                                      24 weeks: My belly continues to grow –it’s funny to look back at earlier pictures when I thought my belly was soooooo big- and the baby continues to move and shake around.. it’s amazing. I could lay on the couch and feel her kick for hours, and sometimes there’s a…

A can of worms

I’ve definitely created a monster with the whole baby book thing. I’ve read so many, and continue to read as many as I can. Like I said before, I definitely won’t know what to *really* do or what works for our family until the little Nuggette makes her appearance, but in the meantime, I like…

“That won’t happen to me”

Back in the day, I would hear about pregnancy symptoms and ailments and just think to myself “oh, that won’t happen to me.” Now that these things are all actually happening… it’s actually kind of funny to think I could avoid it. Some of them aren’t too shabby (like my dry skin) and some are…

Papa Pilot

Hey, everybody. Bring on the weekend! I already have one small project lined up… This stroller’s so versatile and dude friendly (read: not pink with rainbows) that Michael Bay would give it a slowmo, close-up in his next blockbuster. Behold:  Source Of course, I’ve gotta transform it from it’s current state: Expect Gina to do…

What we picked

Registering for baby gifts wasn’t as crazyawesome as I anticipated. When we registered for our wedding, I was all about it- planning out our dinnerware and serving dishes, decor, kitchen.. Tom just sat back and watched me live it up. The only thing he requested was a wine fridge, which we got, so he was…

Crazy@$$ dreams

I read that pregnancy can heighten every single sense (done and done… I can smell you and most likely guess your perfume from a mile away) and that dreams can become more vivid. This was actually one of the first things I experienced, even when I didn’t know there was a gluten-free bun in the…
