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, […]

Weeks 10-13 (April 7)

10 weeks.JPG

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 […]

not this time (February 2, 2015)

So I was feeling anxious and took a pregnancy test last week. When I took my pregnancy test with Liv, I didn’t go to the store with the intention of getting a test. I was in Target, buying a bunch of random things (in true Target spirit) and a pregnancy test found its way into […]

    “I am a human. But I am a princess.”   Liv: “I want a godmother.” Me: “You have a godmother, silly. Auntie Meg is your godmother!” Liv: “But why doesn’t she have wings?”   Liv: “I just love to nap every day.” Me: “Me too. Naps are the best! “ Liv: “They’re just […]

a secret (January 17, 2015)

Even though we only just started not-not-trying, I forgot what it felt like to have this little hope, and feel like you’re carrying a really exciting secret. I’m not even sure what will happen this month, and don’t have high expectations since we’re just now TTC, but I’ve been thinking about baby #2 and how […]

thoughts on two (January 15, 2015)

I can’t even believe I’m writing these posts right now. Every time I type, think, or start to imagine baby #2, I get flooded with emotions, which is usually a mix of giddy excitement and a little bit of fear. I say the last part, because -I’m sure many of you have experienced this- we […]

we love our doula


It’s National Doula Week! I was so excited to see these images floating around social media, with an extra opportunity to celebrate doulas around the world. (Source) Even though Liv is three years old, I think about her birth, our birth team, and our fabulous doula at least a few times a week. I feel […]
