2nd Trimester

8/9: No turning back

Yesterday, I had my first major moment of doubt. This whole time, I’ve been so in awe and thankful that this is happening, pumping myself up for the birth –I keep telling myself that it’s the first chance I’ll get to show myself how strong I am- and relishing every little bubble and popcorn pop…

Prenatal Yoga

Since I’ve had this little growing baby in my belly, I’ve only practiced yoga a handful of times. I used to practice every.single.day. Why did yoga fall to the wayside? I had NO idea how to modify poses, what to do if the class was doing something I couldn’t (like poses on the back or…

Preg Superfoods

Pregnancy has done amazing things in teaching me how to eat intuitively. Before I got pregnant, I had a pretty standard way I preferred to eat (whole, highly plant-based diet during the week, with a treat day over the weekends, small treats during the week if I really wanted something specific), and after the little…

A Dog and a Baby

Bella has always been the #1 baby in my life. {Baby Bell! I used to dress her everyday. Haha} She was actually a Valentine’s gift from the Pilot. I was studying at my apartment, he went out to “run an errand” and came back with a little maltipoo that fit in the palm of my…

Silly things

There are a LOT of pregnancy-baby-toddler products out there. After talking to experienced moms, they’ve told me that I really don’t need that much stuff, and I kinda don’t want to go too cray cray. I’d rather spend money on fun experiences than toys/random junk and am not a fan of clutter, anyway. That being…

8/1 Checkup

I love the fact that being pregnant enables me to relate with different people than I would have before. It’s fun to be a part of the “future” mom club and hear stories and advices from other women who have been through the whole shebang. But, on the other hand, it’s another way for me…

“Sorry about that”

(Baby’s first Zumba outfit, courtesy of Suzi! I LOVE it) I’m kind of embarrassed to see my husband later today. Last night, I had the first real, major, pregnancy hormone-related meltdown… and it probably scared him a little bit. When I got home from work, he asked what I was thinking for dinner and I…

Baby’s First A+

In between the Monday moving frenzy, I had a phone call from an unknown number. Right away, I decided to answer and see who it was, and it was one of the nurses from the clinic where I had Friday’s blood work. The blood work was the second part of the testing we had done,…

Awkward Pregnancy Moments- II

Having a gluten-free bun in the oven sets me up for a ridiculous amount of awkward moments, but of course, I try to find humor in all of them 🙂 I’ve already posted about a few, but with the way this is going, it will most likely become a regular series 😉 Source 1.) Getting…

Baby Lust List

Baby shopping is FUN. I never thought I’d enjoy shopping even more than I already did, but it finally happened 😀 Ever since we found out little nugget is a he-nugget last week, it’s been such a blasty to meander around baby stores and websites to get ideas for our registry. We’re not going to…

Why I’m excited for a little man

Thank you so much for all of the kind comments, tweets and emails about finding out the sex of our now-avocado 🙂 It’s been a blasty to share this experience with all of you- I’m loving every second <3 So, whenever we tell people we’re having a boy, the first thing they ask is: “Is…
