Round 2- 2nd trimester

28 week ultrasound update

Hi friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a great time spent together, but Friday morning was a mix of positive and not-so-ideal news at my ultrasound appointment. I figured I’d share an update with you all since so many of you offered to send well wishes, prayers and happy placenta moving vibes…

How workouts have changed in the second trimester

Round 2! Slowing down a bit, but still going strong. <3 Second trimester is usually when things need to be modified for pregnancy, and I’ve found that with a few simple changes, I’ve been able to keep up my activity levels, teaching and workouts.

Family: Meet the Midwives

This past weekend, we had the opportunity to tour the hospital where the baby will be born, and also attend a Q&A session with the midwifery group that we’ve been seeing. The group is very similar to our care in Tucson while I was pregnant with Liv. There are multiple midwives in the practice, and…

Doula, round two-la

(I couldn’t help myself.) As I mentioned before, it’s been nicer to go into this pregnancy with a more relaxed and trusting mindset. As I think it’s expected with first-time moms, during my pregnancy with Liv, I couldn’t read fast enough. I happily swam in pregnancy books, could easily tell you which fruit or vegetable…
