15 weeks (1 of 1)-2.jpg

15 week belly shot: (Shirt from my friends at For Two Fitness // shorts via Pink Lotus) Some random thoughts/ things I’ve noticed: Round ligament pain is REAL. I don’t have much cramping in my abdomen, but my hips have been aching. I have to be careful about standing up too quickly, or it’s like […]

Livi-isms: 3 year interview

I’ve seen quite a few of these going around lately, and thought it would be a fun tradition to start with Liv. When I picked her up from school the other day, I asked her if she wanted to play the question game. “Yes, I love question games!” Surprisingly, instead of telling me an entire […]

Family: how workouts have changed in the first trimester

how workouts changed in the first trimester.jpg

  Still in the swing of things over here. <3 I’ve been so thankful to be able to continue with my workouts so far, especially since teaching is one of my jobs, and exercise is a huge sanity-saver for me. I always feel more calm, centered, and energized on the days that I move my […]

This post is sponsored by Bitsy’s Brainfood and includes an awesome giveaway, including a Target gift card. Read on for more details! I’m always looking for quick and healthy snack options for Liv, but her tastes and preferences are constantly changing.

 I’ve been reunited with the Snoogle!! (Dat bump, tho.) I brought it into my arms in a warm embrace, and sang it some Ed Sheeran.  Last time I was pregnant, I wrote about some of my first trimester faves. I thought I would share the latest, since they’ve changed a bit this time around. Here […]

Family: Bye, 1st Tri

13 weeks (1 of 1)-2.jpg

I’m officially into the second trimester, and this pregnancy is FLYING by.  13 weeks: w Livi, who had just woken up from her hap:   Highlights: -Starting to feel little flutters. I can’t wait until they turn into full-blown kicks, and until Tom and Liv can feel the baby. When I eat something particularly delicious, […]

Hey guys! I’m publishing all of the remaining posts that I wrote in the last 13 weeks at once; this is the most recent one, as I’m 13 weeks today! I apologize for any confusion the pre-written posts may have caused initially.  To avoid any more of that, I waited until the announcement to post all of […]

Weeks 5-9 update (March 11)

8 weeks (1 of 1)-3.jpg

8 week belly pic: Random things I noticed and wondered: -Can’t wait to find out if the baby is a boy or girl. I told Tom that I wouldn’t mind being surprised for this one, especially since we have a lot of baby gear, but after he looked at me like I had two heads, […]

a flash of light (March 8)

Friday afternoon, I had my first midwife appointment. I was super nervous about it, and I also had to go alone, since Tom came home from work early to stay home with Liv. (They don’t allow children in the clinic during flu season.) Right away, I knew I was in the right place. The midwife […]

give me all the burgers


It’s hard to believe that things are already in motion. I’ve had my first appointment with my regular doc (whom I’d never met) for a midwife referral, and have my first midwife appointment in a couple of weeks. I couldn’t believe that I’ll be 8 1/2 weeks for my first *real* appointment. It seems like […]

Family: the nerves

With as many things as there are to be excited about, it seems there are so many things to also be worried about. I think it’s a tougher point right now because no one knows we’re expecting, and I don’t really have anyone to talk to about it. It feels good to type, and at […]

the sweetest surprise (February 8)

This past weekend, I was in Sedona for the Yoga Festival and to stay at L’Auberge as a media guest. When I arrived into Phoenix, I was due to start my cycle, but nothing ended up happening. figured it was my body playing it bro level so I could do crazy inversions and not be […]
