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.

May AKA – The Busy Month

Happy Monday friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We had a crazy busy weekend with bridal showers, baby showers, coaching, yard work, and just life.  It’s good that this month is busy as it will help the time go by but also, holy cow it’s exhausting!

WIAW – Third Trimester Eats

WIAW – Third Trimester Eats

Hi there!

Hope you’re all having a great week so far!  It’s been a busy week for us so far and a very tiring one.  I’m not sleeping great these days as someone likes to have dance parties in my belly at 4:00am.  Then last night another someone was up singing Star Wars at 4:30am….  Then we had concrete demo started at 7:30.  Sorry neighbors and my pounding head!

At Home Date Night with Datebox

At Home Date Night with Datebox

Hi friends!

Hope you’re all having a marvelous week so far.  We’ve got another busy one which is a trend these days.  April/May are always pretty busy months for us and this year is no different.  In just 5 weeks we have 1 bridal shower, 2 baby showers, 7 birthday’s (including The Love Nugget’s) and Mother’s Day.  I need to start an April/May celebration fund!

It’s all fun stuff though and great since it makes the time go by faster.  This past weekend we were supposed to go out of town for my Dad’s birthday but something came up and we couldn’t make it.  So we took advantage of a night at home and had a little date night using a fun new monthly service called Datebox!

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

Hi there!

Baby number two is getting closer to making his arrival.  I’ve still got two months left, hopefully no more, but I’m feeling anxious to meet our little guy!  As we approach that arrival date, I’ve begun thinking about things we did with The Love Nugget and what I want to do with our newest member to our family.

Pregnancy Update Weeks 28-31

Pregnancy Update Weeks 28-31

Oh hey there third trimester!  It’s definitely hitting me hard!  I’ve had some nausea return, exhaustion and WOW, talk about discomfort!  It’s funny how we block out things from the past.  Either that or I just didn’t experience some of these third trimester issues with The Love Nugget…  Anyway, other than some discomfort and annoyances, I’m still feeling pretty good and getting excited  for little man to make his arrival!

Since I’m almost 32 weeks, I figured I’d pop in and share some updates from the past few weeks.

Things I’m Loving Lately

Things I’m Loving Lately

Hey guys!

I know I’ve been a bit absent around here lately and I apologize for that.  Maybe I’m preparing for baby to arrive when I know I’ll have little to no time to blog 😉

Regardless, I’m here today to share with you all a few things I’m loving lately.

1. This Tazo Iced Tea – I’ve been bored with water lately and after drinking so much La Croix during my first trimester, it makes me a bit nauseous thinking about it.  Luckily it’s iced tea season!  I’ve been loving this particular brand and flavor.  Mostly because it tastes delicious and is caffeine free.  But also because it’s just one giant tea bag instead of smaller ones.  Makes it even easier to make a pitcher of ice tea :-)

Friday Favorites Pregnancy Edition

Hey there!

Hope you all had a wonderful week!  Who’s ready to welcome the weekend!?!  I know I sure am :-)  It’s been a very long week and I’m ready for a few days or fun!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared some fun Friday Favorites.  Since most of my internet time has been browsing the web for baby stuff, I figured I’d share a few baby/pregnancy favorites.

Favorite toddler outfit – I’m obsessed with the tribal prints that are big right now.  Can you blame me when they look this cute on little’s!!!!!
