Hospital Bag Must Have’s for Mom

Hospital Bag Must Have’s for Mom

Hi there!

Less that four weeks!  I’m on the countdown and preparing little by little.  I’ve made a few freezer meals, the nursery is just about finished and little by little I’m packing my hospital bag.  I hope to have it complete by the end of this week.  You never know right!?!

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

This past weekend we celebrated a certain special someone’s fifth birthday!!!!

I’m not quite sure how this little guy is already five.  Everyone always tells you to enjoy those first years as the time goes by so fast but you can’t understand it until you’re actually experiencing it.  Time definitely flies!  It feels like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.

Pregnancy Update Week 32 – 36

Pregnancy Update Week 32 – 36

Eeek!  36 weeks!  I’m so ready for our little man to arrive but am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that our little family of three is about to grow.  I mean, obviously this is what we’ve wanted for so long.  Such a long time that we’ve gotten quite used to it just being the three of us and the thought of that changing REALLY soon is making me a bit emotional.  It’s not that I’m worried about adjusting or scared just feels weird that it will never again just be the three of us.

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy humpday!

I’ve been loving Wednesday’s lately.  Half-way through another week of pregnancy!  Definitely on the count down these days.  Just about 4 weeks left!  Crazy right!?!  For some reason I have a feeling he’ll be arriving a week before but knowing my luck that won’t happen….  I’m keeping my fingers crossed though!

Anyway, since it’s Wednesday I thought I’d share a day of eats for a WIAW round-up.  I don’t do these all that often these days but they are fun to do every once in awhile.  So here’s a look of eats from the other day :-)

Breakfast – The Hubby was home so made some eggs and sausage but all I wanted was a smoothie bowl.

Third Trimester Must Haves

Third Trimester Must Haves

Good morning!

I can’t believe I’m nearing the end!  I’m anxious, excited and ready to get this busy little guy out of my belly! The past few weeks have seemed extra tiring.  I know they say exhaustion returns in the third trimester but I don’t remember it being this exhausting with The Love Nugget.  Maybe it’s because I’m so much older 😉

As I did with the first and second trimester, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve found helpful and/or necessary during this final trimester.

Exercise During the Third Trimester

Exercise During the Third Trimester

Hi guys!

I’m half-way through the third trimester now which means we’ll be meeting our little guy soon!   Hopefully sooner than later but don’t we all wish for that.  I’ve mentioned before that The Love Nugget was two weeks late.   My doctor has already said they won’t let me go that long over due since there is now way we are off on our dates as far as being later.  However, my doctor took a leave of absence due to some family emergency so I meet with a new doc in a week.  At this point I’m fine with it since typically a midwife delivers anyway but part of me is a little annoyed because I really like my doctor.  He is the head of perinatology at the hospital and as I see other doctors I learn more about the route he took with me wasn’t what everyone else would have done.

Mom’s Day Weekend

Mom’s Day Weekend

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

The Love Nugget was really into Mother’s Day this year which was so sweet.  All week he kept talking about how it was almost Mother’s Day and how he got me something really special.  Saturday he wanted to tell me what it was because the anticipation was killing him!  Just like his dad!  He held off until Sunday though :-)

Anyway, we kicked off our weekend with a nice date night for The Hubby and I.

Keep your Fitness Fresh with Cottonelle

Keep your Fitness Fresh with Cottonelle


I’m now almost 34 weeks pregnant and nearing the end.  If you’ve been pregnant before you know that with the third trimester comes some unpleasant side effects.   Fatigue, heartburn, the return of nausea, back pain, stretch marks, varicose veins and the constant urge to pee are just a few.  Some of which I’ve experienced and luckily, some of which I have not.  One that has hit me hard though and has made for some annoying situations has been the constant urge to urinate along with the occasional leaky bladder.

Fear Free Childbirth and Growth Spurt!

Fear Free Childbirth and Growth Spurt!

Hi there!

How is your week going?  I must say I’m happy it’s already Wednesday.  Only three more days left in the week for another week down.  We’re obviously on the count down to baby arriving.  It’s funny with The Love Nugget I was so nervous those last few weeks and honestly a bit stressed about how everything would go.  I think a lot of it was that it was my first and a lot was that I was also leaving my class for the final month of the school year to someone else.  After spending a year helping them grow it was hard to let them go.

This time I’m feeling a lot less stressed about labor itself.  Even though it’s been so long and I never went into labor on my own.  As I’ve mentioned before, I was induced at 42 weeks and after getting pitocin went from a 0-10 with pain in 20 minutes.  I got my epidural soon after then a few hours later The Love Nugget was born.
