WWW – Touching Base!

FYI – this is just a quick “touch base” post since it’s Wednesday and I want to get back in the habit of checking in about health & fitness — by no means am I working on losing weight yet! Here’s the post I wrote at 1 week postpartum with Stella. I was stoked I had […]

33 Weeks

Well, as I wrote yesterday, I’ve been struggling with a few feelings lately that are kind of driving me nuts. Namely, feeling under pressure (from myself) about wanting everything to go perfectly this time – NOT because I’m in denial that every birthing time is different and that I need to willing and able to go […]

31 Weeks

At my midwife appointment yesterday, I got a little lecture for not eating and drinking enough. Say what?! I’m a hungry pregnant lady who feels like she is eating non-stop and growing like a weed! According to my midwife, I’ve only gained 2# in the past 4 weeks (which isn’t bad for goodness sakes, I’m […]

Oops – it’s been 3 weeks since my last pregnancy update post. I was so good about doing these weekly updates with Stella, but this time around it seems like time just gets away from me. At any rate, I am officially in the 3rd trimester now, no matter how you count it! I don’t […]

17 Weeks – Renewed Workout Resolve

I’m not sold on the long term safety of repeated ultrasounds, but I’m also not supremely worried about it either (obviously, I had 3 with Stella and 1 already with […]

13 Weeks

**Caution – lots of belly pics & pregnancy talk below this photo! No, I’m not always going to write this disclaimer, but I did today, so there ya go.** So I’ve been slacking on weekly pregnancy updates, but I just don’t find that I have as much to write about this time around. I think […]

11 Weeks

So apparently my little lime sized fetus now enjoys a 1:1 body/head ratio at this point. Kiddo – if you are anything like your big sis, this will continue for awhile (she had the head circumference of your average 2 year old at her 12mo well child check). Big brains for the win! I’m down […]
