3rd Trimester

Boot Help and Maternity by lulu

I’m not usually an impulse buyer. I buy things on super sale, and the more expensive investments, I’ll ponder and research for a little while before making the splurge. Huge purchases (like electronics) give me anxiety. Boots usually don’t. Those, however, were an impulse buy. I really wanted a pair of heel booties to wear…

Baby meals

I’m one of those people who likes to have a tentative meal plan for the week. It makes it way easier to grocery shop, and since I’m usually frantically running around, if I have to plan and shop then cook at the same time…. well this is what happens. Cereal in a mug happens 😉…

Notes from the week: 12/1

-I think the baby has definitely dropped. Everyone else seems to have noticed this too (“I don’t think you’re going to make it until your due date!” I don’t either but I’ll have to laugh if I go to 41 weeks without any sign of labor), since the little one used to be snuggled up…

The girl who wouldn’t “moo”

The day I changed my major from Musical Threate to Finance, something changed with my personality. Anything that I wasn’t forced to practice and perform (singing, public speaking) on a regular basis… died. I was still dancing and teaching at the studio, so that wasn’t a problem, but class presentations became something I dreaded instead…

3rd trimester fuel

I’ve definitely eaten more pie and sweets in the 3rd trimester than any other. What can I say? ‘Tis the season and baby likes those treats!   [mom made gf brownies… I love her] At the same time, I’m still focused on getting as many nutrient-dense foods as possible, since her brain is going through…

I had no idea

Over the past almost-9 months (!!) I’ve learned quite a bit about pregnancy and childbirth. A lot of it has happened through experience, and even with the boatload of books I’ve read, there are still a lot of things I don’t know, and a few that have totally taken me by surprise.   (The Pilot…

What if she’s a he?

I’m bummed because I had to come home early from work today. I slept like a rock last night, woke up feeling great, ate a solid bfast (brown rice cereal and 2 eggs) and was in the weight room when I started to see spots. After drinking some lemonade and splashing cold water on my…

34 weeks

and feeling sappy. 22 weeks:                                                                     28 weeks: 32 weeks:                                                                             34 weeks:       Is it just me, or has the belly gone through a major growth spurt in the past two weeks?! It’s also taking on the torpedo shape that I had predicted. I’m kinda goofy with the belly sometimes –I’ll rub it, make silly faces…

What I’ve learned as a pregnant fitness instructor

I’m not-so-secretly afraid my water is going to break teaching Zumba. Can you imagine the horror? Shaking my booty in front of class when a waterfall of fluid hits the floor to Pitbull. I’d die. [Side note: the new lululemon Quick Step pant is my new fave. I like it even more than the Studio…
