Catching up

Catching up

Yesterday morning I woke up at 4:00am wide awake.  My mom was staying with us and had to be dropped off at the airport early but The Hubby was taking her.  So even though I didn’t have to get up to take her, I was still wide awake.  Some of that was probably the little early morning dancer I have living in my belly 🙂  He likes to party between 4:00 and 5:00 these days.  Anyway, I laid there awake and started thinking about this great blog post I was going to write.  I had an awesome title and nearly the whole post written out in my brain.  I thought, “I should get up and write this down!”  I did get up, and went to the garage to workout since I was up and before I knew it, that blog post was gone.  By the time I sat down to write a few hours later, I had nothing.  Couldn’t even remember what it was about.  Blame it on my pregnancy brain or the lack of sleep but it was gone.  That’s actually been happening a lot these days which is why I’ve been a little absent around here.  Not because I don’t want to blog, but because I just don’t have much to say.  Then when I do, I forget it before I get a chance to write it down.  So basically, I’m still here but please excuse my lack of posts lately.

Pregnancy Update Weeks 24-27

Pregnancy Update Weeks 24-27

It’s funny how the second pregnancy is so different.  With the first we were so excited about every little milestone throughout the entire pregnancy.  I was taking pictures almost weekly with my little sign sharing how far along I was.  We were talking about name ideas all the time.  We started on the nursery as soon as we found out it was a boy and were finished just a few weeks into the third trimester.

This time I barely remember to snap pictures and even then, thye are typically selfies at the gym with no sign.  We’ve only discussed the name a few times with nothing decided yet.  We just started on the nursery and at this rate will finish the week before he arrives…

Regardless, we are all very much anticipating his arrival in three months!  I’m just a week away from the third trimester and am definitely feeling it!  I’ll get more into that in a second as I share a pregnancy update on the past few weeks.

All About Baby’s World!!!!

All About Baby’s World!!!!

I remember when I was pregnant with The Love Nugget from the moment we found out we were pregnant I dove head first into all things pregnancy and baby related.  I got the weekly updates, read all the baby books, and looked online for everything baby for many, many months.  This time around, things have been different.  Maybe it’s that he’s the second child, maybe it’s that I had a hard time really allowing myself to connect to the baby for so long because of the previous miscarriages.  Up until just a few weeks ago I was still fearful I was going lose the baby.  Even still there are moments when I panic something could go wrong.  However, now that I’m 26 weeks and baby is doing great I’m beginning to feel more confident that in 3 months I’ll have a newborn.  Which has made me more excited about all things baby!

I recently heard about a fun, baby centered event coming up in my area and can’t wait to attend!

Second Trimester Must Haves

Second Trimester Must Haves

Okay so I’ve been saying that this pregnancy is going by so slowly but I just realized in three weeks I’ll be in my third trimester!  I have a feeling this final trimester will go by pretty fast since those three months are already looking busy.  Between traveling, birthdays, baby showers, parties etc. we’re busy most of April and May which leaves just a few weeks in June then bam!  Little dude arrives!  Hopefully not two week late like the Love Nugget 🙂

Anyway, since I’m nearing the end of the second trimester I thought I’d share a few things I’ve been enjoyed in my second trimester.  Enjoy!

10 Things I’d forgotten about pregnancy 

10 Things I’d forgotten about pregnancy 

It’s been five years since I’ve been pregnant.  A long enough time that I forgot SO many things about being pregnant.  For starters, how much I dislike pregnancy.  I really hate saying that because yes, I know how lucky I am to be pregnant especially after all that I’ve gone through.  In all honesty, I thought I would enjoy it more this time around because of that fact but the truth is, I still don’t love it.  There, I said it but now let’s move on to all those other things I had forgotten about pregnancy.  ALL meaning there are quite a few!

1. How your brain becomes mush – The saying “pregnancy brain” its real folks. The other day I was in the grocery store picking up a prescription before doing some shopping. I took my wallet out of my purse while in line to pick up and set it in the basket ready to pay. When it was my turn, I stepped away from my cart and after she rung me up I dug through my purse looking for my wallet. I told her I had forgotten it at home then turned around and saw it sitting in my cart…

Pregnancy brain!!

Exercise During my Second Trimester

Exercise During my Second Trimester

Hi guys!

I’ve gotten quite a few inquiries as to what my exercise routine looks like now that I’m pregnant.  To be honest, the first trimester I didn’t have much of a routine.  I worked out when I felt okay which wasn’t all too often.  Even then it was more mild exercises like yoga, plyo, pilates, or modified Burn-I.T. (formally Afterburn) workouts.  Once I got past 14 weeks or so, I started to feel so much better and had a ton more energy.  Exercise became my friend again but of course with a few modifications.

Friday Favorites – First Trimester Favorites

Friday Favorites – First Trimester Favorites

Happy Friday!

Hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend!  I know I am even though we don’t have any big plans.   Well, I take that back.  Saturday we have a date night planned which I know The Hubby and I are both looking forward to.  Other than that we might start planning the nursery and organizing our spare rooms.  Better to start sooner than later.  At least for me, an over planner 🙂

Speaking of pregnancy, I’m linking up today with Heather for her Friday Favorites and sharing a few pregnancy favorites from my first trimester!

Why I’m not Blogging about my Pregnancy Weight Gain

Why I’m not Blogging about my Pregnancy Weight Gain

Hi guys!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week!  It’s been pretty rainy here all week which has kept us mostly indoors.  Some days I don’t mind it and just want to stay on the couch, curled up under a blanket all day.  Usually though I’m itching to get out of the house but with the stormy weather don’t want to attempt venturing out.  Luckily The Love Nugget is back in school this week so I’ve got the mornings to get things done around the house.  Then we try to stay busy in the afternoons by doing things like reading, painting, building legos, going to the library and taking walks with the dogs whenever there’s a break in the weather.

Speaking of walking… I don’t set many New Years goals or resolutions but that is one thing I’ve definitely jotted down that I’d like to work on doing more of.  Walking!    Usually I don’t enjoy it all that much but lately I’ve been craving a nice brisk walk even in the much cooler (often times wet) weather.

Pregnancy Update Weeks 13 – 15

Pregnancy Update Weeks 13 – 15

Hi there!

I have a confession…  I don’t really like being pregnant.  I was really hoping this time I would LOVE it and appreciate it so much more but I really just don’t enjoy it.  I know there are probably women out there who might read this and suddenly have extreme hatred for me as they struggle to get pregnant but sorry, that’s the truth.  I do however love the outcome and that’s what’s getting me through these next 6 months…  Enough of my complaining though.  I’m now in my 16th week so I figured I’d share a little recap of weeks 13-15 with you all 🙂
